A shower bath provides the best of both worlds for your bathroom, so you don’t have to choose between one or the other.

They can be a great solution for smaller or larger bathrooms, giving you a more flexible and space-efficient option that’s also stylish and contemporary. This guide will give you a brief introduction to shower baths, and a look at the range available at VictoriaPlum.com.

What is a shower bath?

Many straight baths can have showers fitted over them, but a shower bath is specifically designed to create an ideal combination of the two. Though there are many different styles to choose from, they generally come in a P shape or L shape, with extra space and a shower screen at one end.

This means you can enjoy a relaxing and luxurious bath, as well as having a spacious and practical showering area.

Styles of shower bath

There are many different styles to choose from in our range of shower baths, so you can easily find one that matches your bathroom and your taste.

P shape

P shaped baths have a curved section at the shower end, with a matching curved screen, giving you extra space for showering as well as an elegant look.

The Evesham shower bath features this curved style, and also has a convenient towel rail on the screen. The Maine shower bath (pictured below) has a similar shape, although the curved form is carried on throughout the rest of the bath design, for a pleasing style that is designed to fit with the rest of the Maine bathroom suite range.

L shape

The L shaped shower bath features straight edges for a sleek, contemporary look. The widened showering area also features straight sides, with a matching shower screen.

The Boston shower bath (pictured below) is ideal for a contemporary look, with a screen and towel rail for added convenience, and a larger area for showering.

With our MySpace range of shower baths, you can save on water, whilst adding extra storage to your bathroom, through clever panels added to the side of the bath. With both P and L shaped models available, you still get the extra room in which to shower, whilst the bath shape remains the same as a regular straight bath, meaning less water is required when taking a bath.

Traditional shower baths

You may not think a traditional style bathroom and a shower bath could possibly go together, but you'd be wrong! We've designed the stunning Shakespeare freestanding shower bath (pictured below), with all the detail and luxury you'd expect from a traditional freestanding bath, but with the full functionality of a shower bath.

Our selection of shower baths come in a range of sizes to suit different bathrooms, starting from 1500mm lengths to 1800mm. Always measure your space before choosing a bath, or measure your existing bath if you’re replacing it. Keep in mind that a shower bath usually has a wider section, which can increase the width needed by around 100mm.


Bath panels

A bath panel allows you to complete the look of your shower bath, providing a sleek, seamless finish. You can also choose from a variety of colours and finishes, and match it to other bathroom furniture products for a complete look. Always check the full specifications of your chosen bath to see which bath panels it’s compatible with.

Bath taps

A stunning tap can make a big difference to the look of your shower bath, as well as add some extra functionality. A waterfall bath filler is a gorgeous contemporary design that really feels luxurious and special, and combined with a stunning shower head can give you a really stylish look.
