Shower bath ideas? Here are 7 of the most stylish

A shower bath might not be everyone’s dream home purchase. Most of us fantasise about having a huge bathroom, with a freestanding bath and adjacent sleek shower enclosure, for example. However, the average UK bathroom measures roughly 2.4 by 1.8 metres (4.32 square metres). That’s barely the size of a king-size mattress, meaning there just isn’t enough space for this fantasy to become reality.

So what’s the solution?

Luckily for those of us with small to average-sized bathrooms, there are lots of great shower bath ideas out there. These combinations are particularly good for families, as the adjustable hand shower can be used for washing babies, toddlers and even the dog.

However, this only works if you decide on an exposed system. If your heart is set on a concealed showerhead, either protruding from the ceiling or the wall, you won’t have the same flexibility, though the finished look will be more stylish. 

Here are 7 of the most stylish over-bath sprays.

OUR TOP PICKS

Firstly, we have this Duravit Shower + Bath, which would enhance any modern bathroom. It’s a two-in-one walk-in shower and tub with easy access, featuring a glass door which locks when the drain is closed, future-proofing the bathroom. Priced £5438, including shower screen.
Secondly, why not tile the panel behind your over-bath shower in a different design to the rest of the wall, creating an eye-catching feature? Candy Cane porcelain tiles in Pine, £137.53 per sq m, Ca’ Pietra. Bath: for similar, try the Picasso Pebble Grey stone freestanding bath, £2095, Lusso Stone. Shower: for similar, try the Trafalgar Traditional Deluxe exposed shower in Chrome, £349.99, Victorian Plumbing.
