At Michael Lowe Bathrooms we realize that some bathroom areas are limited to the space they have. So more thought has to go into the layout of your suite and what you want from your bathroom.
You may want to get rid of your bath and have a stand alone shower cubicle.
The photo below shows a compromise of both a shower above a bath.
A soil stack has also been hidden within a false studding giving the option in this case for a feature alcove built in.
The spot lights above also highlight this area along with the mosaic tile back which gives the illusion of a larger area.
This WC set up has also enabled the shower screen to fully open for the times when you want to use the bath for a long soak.
The studded wall has also given the extra option of a built in shower valve with a fixed head and secondary hose head attachmentas for cleaning down or simply washing your hair.

Some people worry about the practicality of a wet room shower room.
Yes there are issues to think about, drainage, waste water falls and slippage problems but there is no doubt that if done correctly they can add real distinction to a shower room.
They are more popular than ever and as you can see you don’t need lots of room.
We would advise to always use a shower forma, whether it’s vinyls or tile that you choose as your finish.
A tile finish is always best done in an envelop style finish unless your using small mosaic tiles.
Always go for a finished tile one that doesn’t need any treatment or sealant.
The bath also takes up a lot of room in the bathroom compared to a shower cubicle.
Sometimes the best option is to remove the shower and fit a shower cubicle.
The quadrant shower cubicle gives the illusion of using up less floor space, whilst still the ability to have a comfortable shower.
So is often the desired choice in the modest bathroom.
In the situation here it has freed up space for a vanity unit complete with semi recessed basin.
The extra floor space gives you other options with storage and accessory choices.
If your lucky enough to have a bit more room in your bathroom then a P shaped bath is a good alternative to a standard bath.
This unit has been placed central to the window to let in as much light as possible.
