SHOWERS & SHOWER CUBICLES JAREDA | Author: Tom Norris

Go for an electric shower system that delivers a minimum of 10 litres a minute. Anything less than that is likely to be deemed an unsatisfactory shower...


When it comes to showers and cubicles we really are spoilt for choice as there really are so many different options to choose from. A basic shower system comprises of a tray, a cubicle and and the actual water heater which is either a separate electric unit or valves that allows you to run water either direct from a combi boiler or a stored water system.

My view is that is that if there are no water pressure problems then tap into the existing system for your hot water but if your existing hot water system is at capacity then go for an independent electric shower system that delivers a minimum of 10 litres a minute. Anything less than that is likely to be deemed an unsatisfactory shower. Another good point about installing an electric shower is that it is always available as it heats the water on demand.

Getting back to the shower tray the minimum size is around 800mm x 800mm which is ideal for small bathrooms but if you do have more space then go for a larger one as it is far better to be able to shower without touching any of the walls or cubicle.

As for the cubicle, the current trend is lots of glass with as little framework as possible. These type of cubicles look great but unfortunately they cost more than the standard style of cubicles.

In terms of cost, showers and cubicles really do not cost a lot as you can pick up a tray for less than 50, a basic cubicle for less than 100 and an electric shower for around 75. There are cheaper electric showers but they deliver a lower hot water flow rate so my advice is to spend more on the actual electric shower to make sure you have a reasonable showering system.

Lastly, the best tip of all is to use the best quality tile adhesive, grout and sealants available so that your shower doesn’t leak.
