A bath or a full shower enclosure

A few years ago, if you said you were going to replace your bath with a full shower enclosure, you would be strongly advised not to do it. The reasons given were usually along the lines of 'homes without baths are not as attractive to potential buyers' and 'what if you had an injury where you needed to soak in a bath with therapeutic bath salts?' Well. Modern house hunters don't seem too concerned if the bath is replaced with a super stylish full shower enclosure, and very rarely do people need to soak in a bath filled with lotions and potions to feel better. Should you have a muscle strain or other injury, there are medications, lotions and massage therapies that can help far better than an hour in ever cooling water.

Another thing about baths is that most modern homes don't have the room for a bath and a full shower enclosure, so the bath becomes an oversized shower tray, with a shower fitted over it. One also has the delight of having a cold shower curtain clinging uncomfortably to ones back mid way through the shower, or a partial glass screen that allows water to splash all over the bathroom floor. Because of this, more and more people these days are doing away with their baths and having full shower enclosures installed instead.

Recently, Splashbacks of Distinction have manufactures, supplied and fitted several full shower enclosures to clients in the Surrey area, and we are receiving many more requests for similar work elsewhere.

Why have a full shower enclosure?

In a busy family bathroom, where kids are rampaging in and out, the shower enclosure needs to withstand everyday bangs, slams and knocks, so it's worth ensuring that the company you contract with provide full shower enclosures of quality and durability.

There are many reasons why you should buy a shower enclosure for your bathroom, the primary one being is that it provides a stylish and practical showering solution, compared to a traditional bath.

With a full shower enclosure, you can step in and out with ease, and there are many designs available to suit any type of bathroom. A full shower enclosure is also ideal for replacing a bath. If you are wary of losing the bath, just think about when you last used it for that purpose. Our clients in Surrey had all used their baths for showering, but had not actually bathed for many years, with one clients bath taps actually seized up owing to never being used.

Our full shower enclosures are made from toughened safety glass, which is 10mm thick. When you consider that at the budget end of the shower enclosure market, the glass thickness is 4mm glass, the mid-range shower enclosures use 6mm glass and at the top end, 8mm glass is used.

If you consider that 8mm toughened glass is recognised as the premium option that offers the highest structural integrity for a frameless shower enclosure, you'll realise that our full shower enclosures are even tougher at 10mm thicknesses.

Our full shower enclosures are so easy to clean

Our full shower enclosures feature easy-clean glass to make cleaning a quick and simple task. The toughened glass we use is super smooth and hygienically clean, thus helping to prevent the build-up of dirt, soap scum, lime scale, stains and streaks. This equates to a full shower enclosure that will look like new for many years to come.

A bespoke full shower enclosure to suit your size of bathroom

We say bathroom, as this is the accepted terminology for the smallest room in the house. However, when you have a full shower enclosure, the term 'shower room' is more appropriate. The size of your shower enclosure is mainly determined by the available space and layout of the room it will be installed in. If you have a large space, then you may want to consider a walk-in shower, but if there's not much space, a bi-fold door or quadrant enclosure offers a space-saving option.

Bespoke full shower enclosures for smaller spaces

Small full shower enclosures are ideal for rooms with limited space. Quadrant shower units are great for saving space too, and they provide an alternative to a rectangular or square corner enclosure. The rounded front maximises floor space, and the sliding doors allow for easier access.

Another solution for a small space is to fit a shower cubicle and tray between two walls. You could opt for a hinged, pivot, sliding or bi-fold shower door. If space is limited, choose a sliding or bi-folding door for your full shower enclosure.

Go modern with our frameless full shower enclosures

For that neat, clean and thoroughly modern look, choose a frameless full shower enclosure. These are perfect for offering a true sense of space, even in smaller rooms. Frameless full shower enclosures are very easy to clean and look bang up to date. You could have a frameless shower door with a matching side panel or a wet room glass screen that's either fitted directly to the floor, or on a low-level shower tray. Whatever you want, Splashbacks of Distinction can help you to make it a reality.

A walk in full shower enclosure for the ultimate wash room experience

Walk-in full shower enclosures have become a very popular choice for adding a clean and minimal style to any wash room. A walk-in full shower enclosure with a low-profile shower tray allows you to get that expensive wet room look, without the expense and major renovations to the walls and floor.

Walk-in full shower enclosures feature a glass panel and a slim line shower tray, with one end left open so you can simply walk in. There are so many benefits to a walk in full shower enclosure. A main advantage is the fact that they are low maintenance and easy to clean, as there are no tracks or hard to reach parts of the structure. Another great advantage of a walk-in full shower enclosure is that they are a life saver for people with mobility issues as there are no doors to open or close.

The advantages of a full shower enclosure

A full shower enclosure can be used to replace a bath that is rarely, if ever used. They offer the user a very spacious showering area, with enough room to dry off too.

A full shower enclosure will also create a sleek and modern look, adding extra value to your home. Because our entire full shower enclosures range are tailor made to suit our clients rooms, you are not restricted by the standard dimensions of shop bought shower enclosures.

A full shower enclosure for you, your family and your dog

Yes that's right, your dog can also benefit from a full shower enclosure. Bathing our furry friends can be a traumatic experience for pet and owner alike. Many dogs tend to freak out when we try to lift them into a bath. They may even be too heavy to lift in the first place, but a full shower enclosure can make both dog and owners life much easier. Many owners have to rely on all manner of dry foam shampoos, or cold garden hoses when Fido decides to roll in something unpleasant, because a bath is out of the question.

Why not be like our Surrey clients and contact us to discuss what type of full shower enclosure would suit your property best. You'll be glad you did!

Kitchen Splashback with Mirror Line, Newmarket

This splashback was painted in Ellis Ikon Azure. We also added a mirrored line through the splashbacks which is quite popular. The customer can choose the position and quantity of the lines and also the thickness so can avoid sockets etc.


LED Backlit Splashback, Royston

With a artistic design printed on the back of the glass very lightly, we are able to achieve the design without a light backing but also achieve illumination in various lights through the LED strips installed in a track behind the glass. With a colour wheel on the remote control for the LED Lights, the customer now has an unlimited choice of colours and brightness for his splashback.

Wine Room, Roydon

Working alongside Brandt Kitchens we installed the glass for this beautiful Wine Room in Roydon. By fitting the very large 10mm Glass Panels on the outside, we painted black borders around the glass to hide any hardware and give a nice edge to the glass. The glass works were then finished with matching Black Hinges and a Black Handle.

Frameless Balustrades and Juliet Balcony, Berkhamsted

We measured and installed these 17.5mm Laminated Float Glass Juliet Balcony and Balustrades early 2019. Sitting on chrome stand offs, the clean and modern look makes a massive difference to the rear of the property. Toughened and Laminated, these glass panels will be sure to stand the test of time.

With the balcony weighing in at 157kg and measuring over 3.5m wide, it was no easy task but the excellent fitting team here made it all possible.
