Frameless shower enclosure for period cottage in West Sussex

The owners of an attractive timber-framed residence in Lurgashall, near Petworth, in the Chichester district of West Sussex have cleverly blended character features with modern luxury.

They chose Showerpower to help them create their stunning, retro-style shower and bathroom, which features vintage-look patterned tiles, lighting and a beautifully crafted vanity unit.

Opting for a sympathetic period feel doesn’t mean you have to go without the modern convenience of a shower and separate enclosure.

However, our clients did not want to spoil the effect of the tiling with a metal-framed enclosure; and the bathroom’s sloping ceiling also meant that a standard off-the-shelf shower unit would not fit the space anyway.

A made-to-measure frameless glass enclosure was the answer.

Bespoke frameless glass bath and shower screens are ideal for older properties, which often have uneven or irregular walls, as they can be designed, manufactured and installed to ensure a perfect fit.

Frameless glass is also essential for showcasing any decorative tile work, as you won’t have a frame or bulky hardware that hinders your view of the tiles. Also, with the option of low-iron glass there won’t be any greenish hue, just crystal clear clarity.

Our team designed the perfect solution creating a customised, angled shower enclosure. The unobtrusive, barely-there look of this bespoke frameless glass design allows the beauty of the tiles to shine through and maximises the space and natural light of the room.

The benefits of a Showerpower bespoke frameless glass enclosure were clear

With much of Showerpower’s work in Surrey and Sussex, we have built a strong reputation for installing shower and bath enclosures in historic and Grade 2 listed buildings and this made us the natural choice for this project.

At Showerpower we understand the specialist technical requirements for heritage buildings and can customise shower surrounds to fit the odd-shaped corners, low ceilings and roof angles you get in period properties.
