Quadrant enclosures – and why they’re invaluable in bathroom design

date iconFebruary 13, 2018

Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen an increase in the trends outlined below, largely due to a range of social and economic factors, such as; children returning home to live after university, increasing house prices and stricter lending criteria etc:

  • Multi-generational households (three or more generations of the same family living together),
  • Young adults living with their parents,
  • ‘Alternative Households’ (shared housing)

With more people sharing a living space, lack of privacy becomes an issue – especially when there is only one bathroom in the house.

In a bid to resolve this issue, we’re seeing an increase in the number of households looking to add an extra bathroom or ensuite to their home – utilising any existing space available – under the stairs, in the loft or into single storey extensions.

This highlights the importance, and increasing popularity of space-saving shower enclosures on modern bathroom design.

A quadrant is so much more than an enclosure that fits neatly in the corner of the room. Their sweeping curves give a sleek and smooth finish, sliding doors minimise obstruction and require a smaller footprint and they are available in a variety of styles: single door, double door and offset variants. The offset shape gives extra space for an even more luxurious showering experience.

Beyond the practical benefits of a quadrant enclosure, there is also the increased illusion of light and space, which is essential in any bathroom space, big or small.

At Lakes Bathrooms we design our quadrant enclosures to give you the best of both worlds; best use of a limited space, combined with a contemporary/modern aesthetic for your bathroom.
