Guide to configuring your shower space

Creating The Perfect Contemporary Shower Space

If you’re looking to create the perfect shower space then consider Crosswaters 10mm options available from UK Bathrooms.

Crosswater have introduced their Gallery 10 and Optix 10 showering solutions so that you and your family can enjoy the ultimate shower experience. Both ranges are made from the highest quality materials and using toughened 10mm glass.

Configuring your shower room can seem a little daunting, with a wide choice available across both Optix 10 and Gallery 10

This guide will help you to make the right choices so that you end up with the perfect showering space.

Gallery 10 allows you to create a luxury walk-in shower whilst Optix 10 offer a range of shower enclosures. If you have chosen a walk-in shower space then Gallery 10 is the range for you.

Gallery 10 – Walk-in Shower Space

First of all, you need to decide the location for your shower space. This could be a corner or recess space, or it could be on a straight open wall. Measure the space you have chosen and select the correctly sized glass panel to fit. We recommend that you allow a minimum of 500 mm entry space.  The Gallery 10 collection offers glass panels to suit all shapes, sizes and spaces giving you a huge amount of flexibility with your shower design.

Additional Stabilising Fixings

Once you have selected your glass panel you may need to consider the option of stabilising fixings, these will depend on your chosen configuration but may include:

  • Glass to glass seal – this will allow you to join two glass panels together
  • Wall profile – this will support a glass panel up to 500mm without a bracing bar
  • Glass to wall bracing bar – this connects your glass panel to the wall and can support panels up to 1400mm
  • Glass to ceiling bracing bar – this connects your glass panel to the ceiling and can support panels up to 1000mm
  • T bracing bar – this is a ‘T’ shaped bar which will connect two glass panels up to 1000mm to a wall

Optional Deflectors

You can then decide whether you need to reduce splash by adding optional deflectors. Any overspray will be minimised by adding fixed or hinged deflector panels.  A hinged deflector shower panel works on 180-degree hinges, great for shower access. While fixed deflector panels remain in a permanent position.

A Gallery 10 walk in shower configuration will be based on your choice of shower base. Gallery 10 walk ins can be set up with the use of a shower tray or the panels can be installed on a tiled bathroom floor – again allowing you a great deal of design flexibility.

Choice of Colour Finish

The Gallery 10 collection is available in a choice of 4 fabulous finishes – Brushed Brass, Polished Stainless Steel, Matt black or Brushed Stainless Steel – choose one of these to match with your bathroom colour scheme. The Matt Black finish looks stunning in a monochrome design and the Brushed Brass works perfectly with the on-trend green and pale pink hues.

Whichever you choose don’t forget you can complete your look with colour-matching MPRO shower brassware, including shower heads, flexible handsets, shower valves and bathroom accessories.

Optix 10 Shower Enclosures

If you opt for Optix 10 luxury shower enclosures then once you’ve decided on your shower location, you’ll need to measure the space so that you can then work out what is the most suitable enclosure or your contemporary bathroom. Consider who will be using the shower and what kind of shower experience you would like to create.

Choose Shower Door Type

You can then choose one of four door types from Crosswaters Optix 10 collection:

  • A single sliding door
  • A pivot door
  • A single bath screen with inline panel
  • A pivot with inline panel

A single sliding door is great if you need a space saving efficient solution. Whereas the single bath screen is good if you are looking for a combined bath shower function.  If you’ve planned a larger shower space then opt for the pivot door with an inline panel. Pivot doors a re a great choice as they feature watertight magnetic door seals for seamless integration and a hassle-free showering experience.

Shower Tray Or Tiled Floor Installation

An Optix 10 shower enclosure also allows you to either install a shower tray or install directly onto a tiled floor. And you can enjoy further design flexibility in the three colour finishes available Brushed Brass, Brushed Stainless Steel and Polished Stainless Steel.

Creating a luxury contemporary shower space is easier than it’s ever been with Crosswaters Gallery 10 and Optix 10 showering spaces.

 

 

 

Shower Room Ideas

Bathrooms of any size can be transformed into your dream shower room. Choosing to remove your bath, or even choosing to making better use of the space you have is a big step. If planned well, you will be able to create the perfect space for the whole family to enjoy. Here are some ideas to help you renovate your new shower room!

Recreate that away-from-home feeling

shower room idea 2  shower room idea 1

Get that hotel-spa feel in your own home with a spa-style shower room! The all-over stone effect tiles and neutral tones give that true away-from-home feeling. The dore oak wood panelled vanity unit is great for storage and gives an organic feel to the room. Using lighter colour tiles in shower enclosures create the illusion of a bigger room which is great if you’re looking to open up the space. Combining angular fixtures and accessories with the smooth round mirror can make all the difference to the feel of the room. A simple switch from your old rectangular mirror will instantly modernise your shower room. They’re also super on-trend too!

Make a statement

patterned tile idea 1  patterned tile idea 2

Tied in with the spa-style, Moroccan style inspired shower rooms are another variation to consider. Swap neutral earthy tones for more statement tiles and patterns. The rich colours create an environment that feels distinguished and luxurious. Plan the colour scheme by combining blues, oranges and gold for this look. Tiny tiles work well when framing the area around wall-hung storage cabinets or even a mirror. The Belgravia brushed brass fixtures paired with the classic Moroccan style ceramic styles create that holiday feeling that we all crave.

Pretty in Pink (and Grey)

pink shower room idea

Greys and blush pinks have been a popular choice in other rooms of the house, but what about the bathroom? Accent colours have always been a bathroom theme favourite for all room sizes, with pastel colours becoming more and more popular. Using pops of colour make the space completely customisable and can be changed to suit future trends too. The pink chevron ceramic tiles placed against the chrome fixtures on the shower screens keep in with the room’s theme. Adding your accessories and elements in advance can really help with planning the space. Using matching towels, ornaments and even shampoo bottles make the space completely unique to you!

Incorporate a bold feature wall

feature wall shower room idea

Pink not your thing? This fresh alternative incorporates light airy white spaces with deep green marble effect walls. Why not channel your inner Interior Designer and pick a statement feature colour for your room? Having a bold statement wall draws your focus as you walk in, and this green marble look is truly unique. The wooden elements on the freestanding vanity unit complete the look too. Having such a deep colour is a bold choice, but if the space has plenty of natural lighting it could really pay off. This shower enclosure, in particular, is specifically designed for the shower door to attach straight to the wall. Which is valuable if you’re working with a smaller area.

Best of both worlds

mix and match shower room idea

Terrazzo flooring is great for mix and match colour schemes you may want to have in your new shower room. Here it matches perfectly with the soft pink and green tones in this picture. Combining dark grouted subway tiles with statement geometric ones in the walk-in shower creates a playful space. Doing this for attic rooms or narrow rooms can really help separate the sections of the room to give the illusion of more space.

Bring NYC to your home

black screen idea for shower room

Inspired by Manhattan loft style, the Impey Soho wetroom panels are definitely a statement shower piece. Paired with matt black brassware it is the ultimate monochrome look and surely an on-trend investment. You can add an extra ounce of personality by introducing rich colours, or even some deep green planhttps://www.ukbathrooms.com/shower-enclosures/walk-in-showers/https://www.ukbathrooms.com/wet-rooms/ts for a fresh botanical vibe. This look could work in small spaces and you will still have space to dry off! It comes in many sizes and panelling combinations, enabling you to have a cloakroom shower or en suite, all the way up to a full walk-in shower or wetroom.

Due to be popular for 2021 is the leaning ladder radiator. Its appearance may seem imposing for very small rooms but could work well as a heating solution in those more awkward spaces.

Complete the look

flooring ideas for shower rooms

Another big decision you may have to make will be about which flooring to choose. Tiles may be the obvious option and there’s plenty to choose from! But if you’re looking for a natural feeling space then it’s worth looking into laminate flooring too. The Palio Clic Wood Vinyl flooring give the feel of laminate but is completely waterproof. Made especially for the bathroom. It’s available in all different effects to match your room perfectly.

Country style meets the contemporary

country contemporary idea for shower room

If you’re unsure about whether you want a more traditional or modern style, why not incorporate both? This bathroom combines the stylish modern black bathroom aesthetic with traditional elements such as the Victorian style shower valves and taps. The style is very decadent and looks very luxurious. It would also so look great with an industrial style too, by adding wood instead of the contrasting marble tiles shown. The floor-to-ceiling tiles make messes easy to clean making them completely child friendly! This range by Burlington also includes a black country-style sink and even a toilet for a matching set.

Brand new for 2021

new 2021 shower room idea

Make use of all the quirky alcoves in your home with a recessed shower. This frameless walk-in enclosure has just released and is in a very sought after style. The black tiles paired with brushed brass fittings is sleek and sophisticated.
