A shower enclosure can be your bathroom’s star attraction, or it can be an eyesore. Fortunately, there are many types of shower enclosures available to make your space look great! Shower, we can divide enclosures into 5 categories based on their function and construction. Learn the pros and cons of each type and which will work best in your home, so you’ll have no problem deciding on which to purchase or installing yourself.

1) Solid Surface Shower Enclosures

If you have a small bathroom, but still want to give it an upscale, spa-like feel, you might consider a solid surface shower enclosure. These units don’t have any moving parts, so they can really open up space. Solid surface materials are also great for bathrooms in which water might cause damage to other surfaces.

2) Glass Shower Enclosures

Glass is transparent and allows you to see what’s going on outside while you’re in there. It doesn’t do much to keep your shower warm, but looks really nice. Glass enclosures are very easy to install and come with a wide range of options for customization, including patterned or etched glass, or frosted glass if you want something more private. These are ideal for small bathrooms where you want to make sure all available space is used.

3) Frameless Glass Shower Enclosures

They’re functional, simple and completely unadorned—and they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Frameless glass is one of most popular types because it looks great and allows maximum light into your bathroom. In fact, many people consider frameless glass a real design asset to their space. If you’re looking for an uncomplicated alternative to traditional shower doors with frames, frameless glass is a perfect option. And its popularity just keeps growing each year!

4) Integrated Shower Enclosures

Make your bathroom look more modern with an integrated shower enclosure. They’re sleek and frameless, which makes them stand out among other outdated styles. It’s a great option for those looking to revamp their entire home without breaking their budget. If you want something truly unique, talk to your local bathroom retailer about custom showers—this way, you can get exactly what you want without having to settle for a design from a manufacturer or installer.

5) Standard Bathtub-To-Shower Conversions

If you’re looking to give your small, outdated bathroom a much-needed refresh without breaking your budget, then a standard bathtub-to-shower conversion might be just what you need. This type of installation keeps costs low by turning an existing tub into a small shower; it’s also one of the simplest ways to go from bathtub to walk-in a shower with no major renovations.

Sliding Shower Enclosures

If you want more space in your bathroom, a sliding shower enclosure is a great option. These enclosures are extra-wide and offer many finishes and styles. Depending on what you’re looking for, there are tons of styles to choose from. You can find sliding door shower screens in frosted glass, crystal or metal with simple or decorative handles. If you have an open concept design, these can make bathrooms look spacious without sacrificing comfort.

Quadrant Shower Enclosures

An L shaped quadrant shower enclosure is great for smaller bathrooms where space is a premium. Because of its size, it does not need much work to make room for it. The corners fit snuggly into any corner so there is no extra effort needed to find them a place in your bathroom.

Offset Shower Enclosures

Offset glass shower enclosures are ideal for wet rooms, but it can also use them in conventional bathrooms. An offset enclosure is a dual-glazed panel set into a frame on one side only, and attached to a wall or floor (or both) with additional support framing. This way, you have glass panels all around you on three sides – offset from each other – for an unrivalled sense of space and light.

Rectangular Shower Enclosures

If you want a clean, sleek look in your shower enclosure, and/or more floor space, a rectangular shaped one is an excellent choice. These allow you to get wet while remaining comfortable, even with people (if any) standing outside of it. Some will include built-in seats and walls within them to give you extra room in your bathtub or wash area—great for cleaning and relaxing after work.

Remodel Bathroom with Bathroom Furniture

The vanity and countertop are a set in Bathroom Furniture. They are one solid unit and they can sometimes come with storage, which is great if you want to keep extra towels or toiletries. They are usually less expensive than custom cabinetry and make a better alternative if you aren’t planning on using some drawers or shelves. For example, maybe you don’t use bath products or hair products but still want a nice surface for holding various items.
