Walk-in shower ideas for small bathrooms

Contemporary walk in shower room ideas

Keep things simple in a smaller space with this elegant and contemporary walk-in shower design.

Cost-effective, stylish, and ultimately hassle-free, the single glass pane keeps the space clean and clutter-free.

It’s a minimalist option that works particularly well if you’re on a tight budget but want something that still looks expensive. As you’re able to save money on shower trays and larger glass installations, you can splurge on the wall tiles, showerhead, and taps, keeping the space slick and tying in all the elements for a classic finish.

Walk-in shower room ideas for awkward spaces

Small walk-in shower rooms

For those with less space or an awkwardly shaped bathroom, installing a walk-in shower might require some imagination.

This modern, marble-tiled example makes the most of its space by creating separation between the shower and the bath. A small dividing wall allows the step-through walk-in shower to slot neatly at the back of the bathroom under the sloped ceiling, while the bath fits snugly in the remaining space on the other side of the wall.

This offers relaxation in a bubble bath beneath a window with a view and the convenience of a shower that fits seamlessly with the neutral and mottled grey decor.

High-end bathroom walk-in shower ideas

Stunning shower room in bathroom

This impressive ensuite bathroom boasts a marble-tiled walk-in shower with double glass panels and a rain-effect showerhead.

You might assume a design like this would set you back a fair amount, but you’d be wrong. The shower tray is raised to save on costs and the floor-to-ceiling glass panels are budget-friendly and easy to install.

Marble shower tiles help to create an opulent look. But that’s not to say this look is out of the question on a more modest budget. Simply opt for marble-effect tiles instead.

Still not sure whether to go for a shower tray or a wet room? Let our experts help you decide. Read our guide: Wet room or shower tray – which is right for you?

Budget-friendly walk-in shower ideas

Cheap walk in showers

Turning your walk-in shower room into an aquatic haven without breaking the bank comes down to a few key choices:

  1. The style, size, and thickness of your glass panels
  2. Whether you’re installing them straight onto the wall or the top of your floor
  3. If you want a matching shower tray or dipped floor configuration

For example, at the cheaper end, small walk-in showers with wetroom panels will cost around £150+, whereas more intricate designs and enclosures at the higher end will cost around £1,500.
