1. Measure Up📐

Dedicated a space for your modern shower? Consider how much room you have and factor in any potential door openings. We recommend a door entry width of at least 500mm.

Selected your preferred enclosure? Choose a shower tray to match your design. Ranging from low profile 25mm trays to 35mm or 45mm profiles, select a shower tray shape in relation to your enclosure.

Walk-in showers

Prefer a walk-in shower design? Fuss-free and easy-access, walk in showers are absent of a door for seamless options in contemporary bathroom suites.  Follow the steps to define your perfect walk-in shower.
