Shower Cubicles

How to Choose Shower Cubicle

Millions of Aussies love to start the day with a shower – a recent survey report that on average we take 50 times more shower than baths. That means, for many households a convenient and comfortable showering space is an essential feature.

With so many shower cubicle models available out there, choosing the right enclosure for you can be trick. Take a look at our handy guide on everything you need to know about buying a shower cubicle and find the perfect model for you and your bathroom.

Count the Walls

The bathroom is usually the smallest room in the house, so good planning is important to help you make the most of your space. Take a look at the layout of your windows, sanitary ware and other obstacles to find out which wall you can use to be the basis of your enclosure. What you should keep in mind is that it’s easy to install shower pipes into a stud wall rather than a brick wall.

Corner (2 Walls Needed)

The following shower cubicles are specifically designed for corner spaces.

Corner Shower Cubicles

  • Quadrant – This type of cubicle features a curved front and takes less floor-space than a square shaped one. You should know that some people find an 800mm quadrant showering area a little small, so we recommend you to choose a 900mm if you have the space in your bathroom.
  • Offset Quad – This type of cubicle features one side longer than the other, which add extra space inside your enclosure.
  • Corner Entry – A square-shaped cubicle that features two sliding doors in the corner that glide back and allow access to the enclosure. If you are looking for an 800mm cubicle, than this can be a better choice than a quadrant as it provides a larger bathing space.

Recessed (3 Walls Needed)

If you have three walls that are close together, then a recessed installation can be a good option for you since it simply involves installing a shower door straight across the front to create the enclosure. The most common types of shower door on the market are:

Recessed Shower Cubicles

  • Hinge – A popular style of door that features hinges on one side and opens out fully into the bathroom. However, this door requires more space in front of the cubicle than the other styles.
  • Pivot – A door that features a pivot mechanism that makes the recede slightly into the cubicle as they open. That means a less-floor space is needed because the mechanism causes less of the door to emerging out into the room.
  • Slider – A great space-saving option since it does not impact on the room when opened. The downside of these doors is that they are only manufactured in 1000mm sizes and larger (to ensure the opening is wide enough for comfortable access). That means they are not an option for recesses that are less than a meter wide.
  • Bi-Fold – Another good space saver as the door stays completely within the cubicle as well as the water.
  • Inline – Featuring a static glass panel that is installed alongside, this door type is suitable for wider installations.
