If you're looking for a sleek, stylish way to add a shower to your bathroom then a shower cabin is a great choice. These self-contained units stand in place rather than fixed to the wall or floor and they're a good option for bathrooms that don't have enough space for a full tiled enclosure. In terms of installation, shower cabins can often be fitted in less than a day, which is considerably quicker than a traditional tiled shower enclosure.
The majority of our shower cabins are made using thermoformed acrylic, which is a strong material that's ideal for the tray area and it forms sturdy walls too. The doors and other metal details are often finished in chrome or brushed metallic finishes, which can provide a gleaming or understated aesthetic depending on your preference. Glass sections in the cabin are usually made using thick safety glass, ensuring they're resistant to cracks and chips. Some models also come with waterproof radios or Bluetooth speakers, allowing you to listen to music during your shower. Thermostatic valves are included with most shower cabins, helping to keep the water at your preferred temperature throughout your shower.
There are many different sizes of shower cabin available, from quadrant showers in 800mm and 900mm widths right up to luxurious double cabins. Some models are also available in elongated shapes, which means they're a good fit for rooms of almost any size.
A typical shower cabin consists of a central control tower that houses the shower valve and back walls, plus the front frame and glass, which on most models are sliding doors. Fully enclosed shower cabins also include a roof or ceiling panel that houses the monsoon shower head and lighting.
Many of our shower cabins are also sold with a steam function, which helps to boost circulation and relieve aches and pains. However, it's worth noting that shower cabins with this feature will use more hot water than those without, so you'll need to have a large hot water tank or risk running out during your shower.
When choosing a shower cabin, make sure you take careful measurements to ensure that it's the right fit for your room and that it can accommodate your existing plumbing. You'll also need to ensure that you have sufficient clearance in front of the shower to open and close the doors without hitting anything else.
