Create a spa-worthy power shower in even the smallest bathroom. Here we explain how.
- A great way to maximise space in a small shower area is to install a wet room separated by glass screens, or just a tiled floor and wall rather than a shower cubicle.
- In terms of wet room flooring, there are two main options. First, you could use a Dukkaboard ready-made shower tray. Fit it directly to an in-filled joist, timber floor or concrete screed floor, then tank the entire surface and tile over the top. Alternatively, install a waste and trap and create a tiled tray above it, with a dip to aid drainage.
- For a seamless look, tile throughout using a single colour and style. Mutina’s porcelain ‘Mews’ tiles in ‘Lead’ are a good match to the modern chevron tiles.
- Frameless glass shower enclosures that have no hinges or obvious seals will make a wet room feel larger, as the panes create the illusion of a wide, open space.
- A high wall- or ceiling-mounted showerhead is less fussy than a conventional shower on a riser rail. If you’re after a high-spec shower that has a minimal look, try ‘Raindance Rainfall’ design.
