How to Choose a Shower Base

Shower bases are an excellent, convenient alternative to a tiled shower floor; they offer a hassle-free installation and, thanks to the absence of grout, are as easy to maintain as they are to install. Shower bases offer high functionality and require minimal effort to install.

When choosing a shower base, two primary factors should be considered: the style and material of the base.

Shower Base Style

Much like shower screens, shower bases come in an array of shapes and styles. It’s essential that your base matches the size and shape of the shower screen. Our range of shower bases is designed to complement our shower screens, but they are also standard sizes to accommodate other brands.

Square 900mm x 900mm shower bases are the most common, but we also offer rectangle shower bases for larger screens and curved shower bases for corner shower screens. Match your shower base to the screen style and shape for the perfect pair.

There are also distinctions between non-self-supporting and self-supporting shower bases. Non-self-supporting bases require additional support, like a mortar bed, while self-supporting shower bases offer more convenience for many homeowners.

Shower Base Material

Choosing the right material for your shower base is as important as selecting the right style. Shower bases are typically manufactured from a variety of materials, such as acrylic or composites like polymarble, bulk moulding compound (BMC), and sheet moulding compound (SMC). These materials ensure seamless construction, provide high durability for longevity, are easy to clean, and offer a low-profile design.
