Q. What is a shower bath?
A. A shower bath is one that is designed to be used for showering just as much as for bathing. Standard baths will usually be designed to be sat and bathed in.
Q. Why should I choose a shower bath?
A. Shower baths are a great option if you are lacking space in the bathroom for both a shower enclosure and bath, as this is a two in one option! They ususally will have a whole host of extras available too such as bath screens to complete the showering experience.
Q. What style should I go for?
A. There aren't huge amounts of differences of styles with shower baths, most tend to be quite modern, although there are the odd traditional style ones around if that's the look that you are keen to go for. A lot of the designs will feature a special 'shower' area where one end of the bath will be L-shaped, P-Shaped or B-Shaped. Be aware that many of the shower baths will be handed - as in right hand or left hand, you may need your installer to advise before purchasing. To save a bit of extra space it may be worth going for the straight shower baths which are likely to take up less room in depth from the wall.
Q. Will I need anything else to go with my shower bath?
A. Your shower bath may need legs to be purchased although they may come included with the bath, bath front and end panels, taps, wastes and shower screens will also not be included and will need to be purchased separately. If you are unsure what is included with the bath that you want to purchase then please see the advert and if you are still unsure you can always give us a call!
Q. Are shower baths suitable for use in a cloakroom bathroom?
A. We wouldn't recommend any bath for a cloakroom bathroom as there will usually only be enough space for a cloakroom suite such as a basin and toilet.
