Often one of the most daunting purchases within a bathroom project, choosing the right shower enclosure for your space is a decision you'll need to get absolutely right.
With lots of different options and configurations available to choose from, it can be tricky to know where to start. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the UK’s No.1 showering manufacturer, Mira Showers, to hear their advice in this shower enclosure buying guide.
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail—doing your groundwork before purchasing your shower enclosure is vital. First, measure up your space and determine the area you're looking to cover. If you're doing a complete bathroom project, it might be worth considering a larger enclosure—and therefore larger shower tray—to cover more floor space. This can save additional tiling costs as well as giving you a bigger showering space.
Also, keep your bathroom budget in mind—there are enclosures to suit all budgets, a lot of which can depend on the features and benefits of the shower enclosure. For example, it might be worth investing in a shower enclosure that has more advanced features such as self-cleaning technologies or thicker glass for added durability. Always choose a reliable brand that you can trust and look at the complementary shower tray options that are available so that you are 100% happy with your completed enclosure.
Your shower enclosure options
There are many different shower enclosure options available for you to choose from. Each configuration has its own features and benefits and is designed to suit a particular bathroom space. The Mira Leap shower enclosure range has configurations to suit any bathroom space. The entire range comes with Mira CleanCoat® technology, a clever glass-coating technology that helps keep your enclosure streak-free, plus a reassuring lifetime guarantee.
Large bathroom spaces
If you have a large bathroom and are looking for a luxurious enclosure, the Mira Leap Sliding Door enclosure is a great option. The sliding door has quick release rollers at the base, meaning you can easily clean those difficult-to-reach areas.
Smaller bathroom spaces
If you have a small bathroom or ensuite, maximising your space is crucial. Try the Mira Leap bifold shower enclosure. With inward-opening doors, it's a real space-saver. Also, take a look at the Mira Leap pivot door shower enclosure for another space-saving shower door.
For an enclosure in the corner of your bathroom, the Mira Leap quadrant shower enclosure will add an elegant curved look, whilst providing all the practicality of a Mira enclosure.

The wet room trend is becoming increasingly popular, especially for small bathrooms or ensuites. If you are looking for a practical shower enclosure solution for your wet room, the Mira Leap divider panel is subtle, minimalist and easy to clean with its integrated Mira CleanCoat® technology.
