While there are few things more relaxing than a long soak in the bath, our fast-paced lives mean that most of us only have time for a quick jump in the shower.

And given that a five minute shower uses about a third of the water you’d use to fill a bath, you can understand why we many people are swapping their the traditional tubs for shower enclosure.

Baths attract buyers

But it’s not just a lifestyle choice that many of us have to take into consideration. If you are buying a new home, a property is instantly more attractive to potential buyers when it has a bath. So many of us are reluctant to rip out the bath, just in case we’re looking to sell up in the near future. Plus, if you’re looking to grow your family, with the addition of children, a bath tub is almost essential.

So what should you do if you love your shower but simply can’t do without your hard-earned bubbles?

The space saving solution

Luckily, there is a way to get the best of both worlds without taking up any more floor space than a standard bath – the shower bath.  Designed wider at one end and with a shower screen, these models offer a more generous showering space than a standard bath with a screen or curtain. They are the perfect compromise, giving you added choice and flexibility.

Which type is for you? 

Here at VictoriaPlum.com, you’ll find two main types of shower bath:

The Evesham P Shaped Shower Bath, is rounded at the shower end for a soft and flowing look. This design works particularly well if the rest of your bathroom suite features curves.

If you prefer something more minimalist, try the Boston Square Shower Bath which can work brilliantly with more angular suites and furniture. The Boston Square Shower Bath has a wide selection of bath panels to choose from, available in gloss white or wenge and oak effects for a more stylised look.

Smart storage

There’s now an even smarter way to combine your bath and shower, whilst providing valuable storage – and it’s exclusive to VictoriaPlum.com.

Our in-house design team have come up with a range of water saving, space saving shower baths called MySpace. They have realigned the shape of the bath to save water when taking a bath, and added a handy storage panel to the side of the bath. You’ll still find there’s plenty of room in which to shower, but you can now save money on your water bills when you bathe.
