The newest trend among homeowners, especially in Surrey, Sussex and the London area, is to replace their outdated bath and shower combination with a separate bath tub and corner shower enclosure with frameless glass.
Until now, most bathrooms usually feature a combined bath and shower. This is practical and offers you the option of taking either a bath or a shower in the same space. However, while it can be ideal for families with young children, it can pose difficulties for older people or those with mobility problems.
When you are redesigning a bathroom, it is important to think carefully about your potential future needs as well as your current requirements. If you can accommodate both a separate frameless glass shower enclosure and bathtub it will be a worthwhile long-term investment.
How to fit a frameless glass shower into your bathroom
First think about every possible configuration for your bathtub, toilet, basin and shower. It’s surprising how much you can actually squeeze in, especially if you fit a shower with a bespoke frameless glass design. Frameless glass can be cut to fit any size or shape and will maximise the light and make the shower enclosure less visible.
Anywhere, any shape, any size
You can position a shower enclosure or screen almost anywhere, as long as your plumbing allows it. We recently designed and installed a frameless glass shower enclosure for in an area of a bathroom which was previously a cupboard for a homeowner in Surrey.
Don’t restrict your thinking
To create extra space you could consider moving a wall or a window. Or it might be something as small as changing the way a door hangs that might have the most impact. Underfloor heating could free up more space too.
Fit a shower under a sloping ceiling
With a custom-made frameless glass, it’s possible to fit a shower enclosure under a sloping roof. This is because the glass can be cut to fit the space perfectly in a way that would be impossible with a metal frame shower.
Make use of corners and recesses
If you’re thinking of siting a shower cubicle or enclosure in an odd-shaped alcove or tight corner, there won’t be a ready-made option to fit these different situations. That’s why you need a bespoke service from a frameless glass specialist like Showerpower. We measure and cut the glass to accurately fit the shape of your walls and floor.

Don’t be square
The traditional shape for a shower enclosure is usually square, but a pentagonal, triangular or slim rectangular design could be the perfect solution using custom-made frameles glass. This photo shows a space-saving frameless glass pentagon enclosure. It resembles a square with one corner cut off. Losing one of the corners of your shower won’t make much difference to how your shower feels when you’re standing inside; but it will save valuable floor space.
