Guide to Choosing a Luxury Shower Tray

Don’t know what shower tray will look best in your home? Take a look at this guide!

When designing your new bathroom, choosing whether you want a shower or a bathtub might be a tough choice. But once you’ve made the decision that the shower is the way to go for you, you might find yourself stumped once again when having to choose the shower tray and enclosure. With so many shapes and sizes to choose from, we know it can be an overwhelming matter, but don’t worry, when it comes to luxury shower trays, we got you covered. Here is a small guide to help you make a decision.


The shape of shower tray will be highly dependent on the space you have available. No matter how much you like the rectangular shower tray with a walk in door look, if your bathroom is small, it might not be a great idea. Something very important to keep in mind when choosing the shape is what type of door the shower will have. Sliding, a hinged-door, will it be a walk-in? This is important because depending on the distribution of the elements in the bathroom, if you have a hinged-door it might bump into your sink or your toilet.

A square shower try will fit into most bathrooms, even if it’s small. You can always fit it nicely in a corner or somewhere else in the bathroom.

Quadrant shower trays are interesting because they are not D-shaped and they are not square. It’s sort of a hybrid of both. Great for putting in a corner, it gives extra space without being too big and encumbering the space, especially if you get the off-set quadrant.


Rectangular shower trays are becoming very popular because it gives a very luxurious feeling, especially if you pair it with a glass door and make it a walk-in shower. If you have a long bathroom, this is perfect to place on the back wall, really taking advantage of it and also making the shower looked ‘tucked’ into the space.


Usually shower trays are made out of stone and white acrylic to give it a clean, polished look.
