How to choose the right shower tray

Bathroom Design & Planning, Sales Support  |  20/04/2016

We are living in a time where options are no longer an option, they are an expectation. The modern day consumer DEMANDS choice, we couldn’t have moved farther away from Henry Ford’s old adage of “You can have any colour as long as it’s black”. This is no truer than in the shower industry. Although the basic concept of a shower enclosure is still recognisable from the earliest iterations, the design, form and material options have changed and expanded drastically.

This idea of options in enclosure design has forced the provision of options in shower trays to cater for these changing shapes and styles. So when you’re specifying your next enclosure there are certain decisions you’ll have to make, some dictated by function, and some simply a matter of taste.

Things you’ll need to consider:

  • Style of tray – heavy or lightweight?
  • Shape of tray – bow front/square/rectangular/pentagon/quadrant/corner?
  • Materials – stone or acrylic?
  • Finish – smooth or textured (gloss or matt)?
  • Which style will be the easiest to clean?
  • Waste position?
  • Ease of installation?
  • Floor surface – is the tray compatible with an ‘easy plum kit’ to level the floor?

The battle of the shower trays: Contemporary VS Traditional

As you can hopefully see there are perfectly good reasons for arguing either a contemporary or traditional option. The only way to ensure you make the right decision when it comes to a shower tray is to prepare yourself with the questions we have provided, with this strong foundation you should find it pretty hard to go wrong.
