Square Shower Enclosure Buying Guide

Have you got your heart set on a square shower enclosure? We don’t blame you! They are the perfect solution for many bathrooms. But, if you’re going to buy one, there are a few top tips which we have outlined below to help you make the perfect purchase.

What is a square shower enclosure?

Square shower enclosures (also referred to as corner shower enclosures) are shower enclosures which make use of two walls in your bathroom, being situated in the corner of the room.
They feature a single glass panel, and a shower door. The two bathroom walls are usually protected from water damage using either tiles or wall panels.

What size square shower enclosures are there?

Square shower enclosures are hugely popular precisely because they are so versatile. They are available in a range of different sizes, which means whether you’ve got a small bathroom or large bathroom, you’ll be able to find a square shower enclosure that’s a suitable fit.
At Royal Bathrooms we stock square shower enclosures in sizes to suit every home. Available sizes include:

  • 700mm x 700mm
  • 760mm x 760mm
  • 800mm x 800mm
  • 900mm x 900mm
  • 1000mm x 1000mm
  • 1100mm x 1100mm
  • 1200mm x 1200mm

What type of doors do square shower enclosures have?

Another benefit of square shower enclosures is the number of choices you have when it comes to the shower door.
Below, we’ve set out the different choices you can pick from when you buy a square shower cubicle.

Pivot/hinged shower doors

Perhaps the most ‘straightforward’ type of shower door is the pivot (or hinged) shower door.
This is a door which operates in the same way as a traditional household door; opening out from the square shower cubicle using a set of hinges.

Whilst pivot shower doors are easy to install and use, and can be cleaned easily, they do place some limitations on where you can put your shower enclosure. Remember, you’ll need enough room to open the shower door - so if you’re trying to fit the square corner shower enclosure in a confined area, a pivot door may not fit.

Sliding shower doors

Sliding shower doors are an increasingly popular option on square shower cubicles. This is because they save space as they open and close within the footprint of the shower itself.
Using rails and rollers, sliding doors can be easily opened and closed and are available in either single sliding or double sliding configurations.

In a single sliding configuration, one panel will slide (acting as the door), whilst the other panel will remain fixed in place. In a double sliding configuration both panels will slide, providing a much larger entry/exit point for your square corner shower enclosure.

Bi-fold shower doors

Bi-fold shower doors are similar to sliding shower doors in that they open and close within the footprint of the square shower cubicle. This means they are ideal for compact spaces as they don’t need to swing outwards like pivot or hinged doors.

Bi-fold doors differ from sliding doors as they use a concertina mechanism to fold in on themselves upon opening.
These types of doors typically use runners to open and close and are ideal for particularly narrow square shower cubicles.

What parts do square shower enclosures come with?

As a rule, square shower enclosures come with a glass shower panel, a shower door, door fittings (which will vary depending on your choice of door) and general fixings.
Square shower enclosures do not always come with shower trays. Some people prefer to buy a shower tray separately. If you want a square corner shower enclosure that does come with a shower tray, then please check the product description carefully before making your purchase.

Glass thickness

Another thing to consider when selecting a square shower cubicle, is the thickness of the glass that is used on the shower panel and door.
Whilst this may not seem like a hugely important consideration, it’s crucial that you give it some thought. The thickness of glass used in a shower enclosure will affect its durability and safety.

Generally, most people will simply select the thickest glass option - ‘the thicker, the better’ being their logic. However, be careful not to choose glass that is too thick. Firstly, it may prove very heavy and difficult to install, secondly if it’s too heavy it may have structural implications for your home.

At Royal Bathrooms our square shower enclosures are available with 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm thick glass.
