The ultimate shower baths buyers guide
If you’re revamping your bathroom it might be difficult to choose between having a bath or a shower. Sinking back in a luxurious bathtub after a hard day at work is one of the best ways to relax, but there’s nothing better than the refreshing, clean feeling you get from a powerful shower.
But the good news is, you don’t have to choose.
There are hundreds of showers that fit over your bathtub so you can have all the convenience of a shower with the comfort of a bath.
And there are shapes, sizes and designs to suit any bathroom – bringing it into the 21st century or giving your home a touch of traditional class.
You can even have the option of left or right hand styles to suit your floor plan and some can have the tap holes left, so you can decide where to drill them to suit your own bathroom.
If space is at a premium, there are compact designs that are cleverly designed so you get a shower and a bath without feeling too cramped in either.
If you’ve just revamped your bathroom, or you’re looking for a new shower bath to modernise your home, then read on and discover all the options you have to choose from.
Bring your bathroom up to date with a modern shower bath
If your bathroom is looking more languid than luxury, a new shower bath can really make all the difference. Clean lines and plain glass screens will give your room a contemporary feel.
The Ideal Standard Create Idealcast shower bath is an excellent example of a modern tub. This sleek design will fit in with almost any room and has a slightly wider end portion, allowing you to really lie back and relax.
Another option would be the square Carron Index which would be a striking addition to any bathroom. It's ideal for any layout - the tap holes aren't pre-drilled, which gives you the flexibility to put them wherever you want. It's billed as being perfect for families with small children, as well as for people with mobility issues.
A nod to tradition with a classic shower bath
It doesn’t have to be all about the modern designs though; traditional baths can also be the perfect shower baths.
A traditional, roll top bath can also be fitted with a shower to give the added convenience to a classic. You can fill the luxurious tub to the top and sink back in your own opulent Victorian-style spa, but also adapt it to a shower space by simply adding a screen.
You could also add chrome feet to complete the period look in either chrome, black or white to suit your decor.
They can also come in left or right hand designs to fit the floor space you have available, or even make a feature out of your traditional bath by siting it in the middle of your bathroom for that opulent feel.
Put the P in Perfection with a shaped shower bath
A P shaped shower bath gives you all the space of a shower with the added extra of a bath. While some rectangular shaped baths might feel cramped, the added space of the P design gives you room to wash in comfort.
If your bathroom is on the small side, you can still have the best of both worlds with a bath and a shower that doesn't take up too much room. The Adamsez Mezza mini shower bath is a contemporary design made to perfectly slot into a smaller room. It comes in left or right hand styles, and can be fitted with an integrated curved shower screen to give you the most possible space while showering. It is 1500mm by 850mm but this diminutive size doesn’t mean it's any less effective - it still holds 180 litres of water.
The clean white finish fits perfectly in any existing suite or decor. And you can rest easy knowing it comes with a lifetime guarantee.
The Carron Celsius shower bath is another P shaped design but this one concentrates on retaining the warmth of the water for longer. The modern bath is made of Carronite, which is twice as strong as acrylic and holds heat longer than iron or steel.
Another useful design feature is the pull out screen, which starts off as curved on one section of the tub but can be pulled round to create a wraparound shower screen, protecting your bathroom floor from splashing water! The simple style and neutral colour means it easily fits into any home. This 305 litre model also comes with a 30 year guarantee, which means you'll definitely get the most from this model.
The Vitra Delphi shower bath has an attractive, asymmetric design which makes the best use of your bathroom space while also adding a classic look. The style incorporates a reclining back rest, which means you can really lie back and relax.
A matching curved glass shower screen allows you to shower over the bath and the acrylic is naturally non-slip to aid safety. It comes in left and right hand styles, so can be used in any shape bathroom.
To give your bathroom a retro feel, go for the Adamsez Retro shower bath package.
The P shaped bath gives you extra room with a clever design which doesn’t take up too much floorspace in your home. The 180 litre bath has an ergonomic design so you can lay back and relax in comfort.
It's deep enough to feel luxurious without becoming overbearing and the high gloss white finish will make your bathroom seem clean and fresh. The end panel, brassware and waste is not included, but the base package does include a screen. The extended screen that fits this bath has a raised ledge to stop splashback.
Lay back in an L shaped bath
An L shaped bath gives you more room when you’re bathing, while also creating clean lines and a modern feel to your bathroom.
The Carron Quantum shower bath can be ordered alone or complete with a matching pivoting screen. It comes in left and right hand versions to fit any room. The slip resistant material means it will be safe and the design means you can indulge in both a shower and a bath, without having to pay for two separate fittings.
You can also have the bath covered in Carronite, a strong material which increases its lifespan.
If you want something striking to revamp your bathroom, choose the Sommer L shaped shower bath, which is a pleasing and efficient design.
The widened end gives you room to shower easily and comes supplied with a fitted bath screen. Even with the screen, it still feels spacious and open. The integrated chrome towel rail means your towels will always be conveniently within reach after you've had your shower.
It comes in left or right hand designs to suit the shape of your bathroom and there's an optional extra end panel which can be used if the bath is to be fitted into a corner.
The attractive shower screen comes with chrome plated framing which complements the glass.
Ideal Standard concept space bath is a really eye catching design that will add that contemporary touch to any home.
But while it is striking, it won’t take up too much room as this package is designed to make the most of the space you have. The L shape design gives you ample space to shower, while the bath itself is more than big enough to lie back in.
It comes with a front panel as standard, a matching end panel can also be supplied to suit your room.
The real unique touch with this shower bath is the palette. With six different colours to choose from, it's ideal for any bathroom. Choose from Gloss White or Gloss Grey, or the natural look of Elm, American Oak, Dark Walnut or Gloss Walnut.
It also comes in left or right hand designs, which makes it one of the most versatile shower baths on the market.
So now you’ve seen what there is on offer, making a choice should be easy. Whether you’re looking for traditional or modern designs there is lots of shower baths to choose from. The versatility of models that come without pre-drilled holes for the taps or shower fittings mean you can work out your perfect combination to fit your bathroom.
A P or L shaped shower bath gives you all the comfort of a bath with the added extra of a shower. These ergonomically designed shower baths are made to allow comfortable showering within the added space.
And with most designs coming complete with a matching shower screen, you don't even have the headache of picking out something that will match or fit your shower bath.
