Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 3 years ago 7 min read

To help make life easier when buying a brand new shower and enclosure, we’ve come up with 6 of our most popular combinations to suit the average UK bathroom or ensuite.

Find the perfect combination for your bathroom situation below.


1. For the corner of your master bathroom, designer style

The Mode Ellis enclosure will give you some great designer style, with its frameless design and high quality 8mm safety glass. Generous adjustments allow for easy installation, high quality shower door seal strips offer great protection and a sturdy wall support means a solid construction.

Compact yet stylish, the Orchard Wye square head shower riser system comes with a sleek shower rail, overhead shower system and an exposed thermostatic valve. The square shape goes perfectly with the rectangular enclosure.


2. For a recess in your ensuite or small bathroom, contemporary style

Mode Ellis thermostatic triple shower valve complete shower set & Mode Ellis premium 8mm easy clean sliding shower door

For this layout, we'd recommend the Mode Ellis premium 8mm easy clean sliding shower door. Featuring a sliding door, as opposed to one that opens outwards, this is the ideal shower door for small spaces. The 8mm British standard safety glass is coated with an easy clean surface that helps repel soap and grime, whilst generous adjustments allow for easy installation.

Keep things contemporary with the Mode Ellis thermostatic triple shower valve complete shower set, which features an adjustable slider rail kit and overhead shower with silicone nozzles for easy cleaning. The concealed triple thermostatic shower valve allows you to use both outlets simultaneously and comes with an anti-scald device for added safety. Plus, as the valve sits within your wall cavity, it is neat and unobtrusive.


3. For the corner of your master bathroom, where easy access is key

These days, many of us are turning to the shower as a replacement for our baths. In which case, you will usually find all plumbing tucked away on one end of the room, near a corner. As we get older, we don’t want to be climbing in and out of things, so easy access is essential, which is why we would recommend a walk in shower enclosure. It comes complete with low level tray, and the doorless design means you can walk straight in. The curved screen gives you plenty of room to manoeuvre, whilst the frameless style allows light to penetrate.

To complement the curved screen, the Mode Harrison round wall shower set comes with a simple overhead shower and curved wall arm. It is nice and neat, with with easy-to-use temperature and flow controls.


4. Against a flat wall, with designer style, luxury features and easy access

Mode Spa complete square thermostatic triple shower valve with diverter and wall shower set & Mode Luxury 8mm wet room 3 sided glass panel pack

If you're looking to position your shower against a flat wall, you can either use a D shaped enclosure, or, to add a more spa-like feel to your bathroom, why not create a wet room?

Our 3 sided glass panel pack is perfect for the job. Offering protection on all 3 sides, the frameless design comes with 8mm glass that conforms to all relevant British safety standards.

If you're pushing the boat out a little, why not treat yourself this luxurious Mode complete spa set? Containing an overhead shower with easy clean nozzles and slider rail kit for more focused cleansing, you can simply relax, as the thermostatic concealed valve with anti-scald device blends your water to perfection. Of course, the pièce de résistance is the enjoyment you'll get from the 6 adjustable body jets.


5. For the corner of your master bathroom, to complement a traditional suite

Mode Ellis premium 8mm easy clean offset quadrant shower enclosure & The Bath Co. Winchester thermostatic shower valve with ceiling shower and slider rail set

Featured products: Mode Ellis premium 8mm easy clean offset quadrant shower enclosure & The Bath Co. Winchester thermostatic shower valve with ceiling shower and slider rail set

Subtle classical features make the Winchester ceiling shower and slider rail shower set the perfect accompaniment to vintage designs. The overhead rain can style shower head with ceiling arm gives a nod to a bygone era, whilst the slider rail kit comes with a telephone style shower handset. The triple valve features classic touches like ceramic handles and a cross handle temperature control mechanism.

The Mode Ellis offset quadrant enclosure offers the best of both worlds, if you don’t quite have the room for a rectangular enclosure, but want more space than a regular quadrant enclosure can offer. Sleek and stylish, this enclosure comes with 8mm British standard safety glass and an easy clean coating, helping to reduce the build-up of grime and limescale.


6. In the corner of an ensuite or bathroom, but don’t want to spend too much

Orchard Derwent round head shower riser system & 6mm sliding door quadrant shower enclosure

Featured products: Orchard Derwent round head shower riser system & 6mm sliding door quadrant shower enclosure
