What will affect the cost of a shower enclosure?
Whether you want to keep costs low or have a million-pound budget, our buying guide will help you choose a shower enclosure for you.
- Thickness - Standard glass thickness includes 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, and 10mm. The thicker the glass the more durable it is. The price will also increase with the glass thickness.
- Size – If the size of the enclosure is big there will be more material used for development. So as the size increases cost will also increase with it.
- Style - The style of your enclosure shouldn't alter the price too much.
- Brand - Depending on which brand of shower enclosure you choose, the cost may differ. Merlyn will give the best products at an affordable and pocket-friendly cost.
Wet rooms and walk-in showers
Wet Rooms and walk-in showers are both popular choices for modern bathrooms and both have their benefits. A wet room is an entirely waterproofed room, generally equipped with a shower, and usually clad entirely in tile. Walk-in showers are a great alternative in spaces where a wet room isn't recommended. As there’s no need for a shower tray there’s no step to get into or out of the shower which makes wet rooms a great option for those with mobility problems.
