Shower trays for small bathrooms - which one to choose?

Shower trays for small bathrooms - which one to choose?

A shower tray for a small bathroom is a product worth selecting carefully to ensure compatibility with the rest of the shower area elements. Equipping a small bathroom presents an interesting challenge. All bathroom components should create a harmonious image. This starts with color choices and extends to the texture of each equipment piece. Bathroom fixtures and elements must harmonize, coming together in a visually pleasing space.

Often, we wonder how to select individual products to make a small bathroom functional and practical. The bathing area is a fundamental part of the bathroom, and without it, the functionality of the bathing area is compromised. We choose a shower enclosure and invest time in fitting it properly. Equally important is choosing the right shower tray for a small bathroom.

Bathroom design should be based on three values:

  • Functionality, which is fundamental,
  • Comfort, so we feel good regardless of space size,
  • Safety, so every user can use it without restrictions.

Regardless of the bathroom's size, there are many factors to consider when choosing the perfect shower tray. For small bathrooms, optimal utilization of available space is crucial. Shower trays are not just functional elements but also important design components. A well-chosen shower tray can visually expand the space.

One of the most popular choices for small bathrooms is trays that can be installed level with the floor. Their low height provides a smooth transition between the dry and wet areas in the bathroom, creating an illusion of more space. Corner shower tray installation saves valuable centimetres and provides additional space for other bathroom elements.

Material is also an important factor in shower tray selection. Shower trays made from mineral cast with a textured surface are becoming increasingly popular, mimicking the environment around us.

When it comes to design, opting for a shower tray with simple, minimalist shapes is advisable. Light colors such as white or shades of grey can additionally visually enlarge the space.

Structural shower trays - enhancing quality and safety in your

The highest quality and natural origin is one of the characteristic for mineral cast, the material used for these bathroom shower trays. It is known for its resistance and ease in removing abrasions, scratches, distortions, and potential damage. Mineral shower tray material harmonizes well with other elements like wall and floor tiles, creating an aesthetic, luxurious, yet tactile bathroom space. Additionally, mineral cast shower trays are easy to clean, possess aseptic properties to prevent mold and fungus growth within the structure, and are resistant to chemical substances. Structural shower trays, inspired by nature, are increasingly popular. Their slightly porous structure provides anti-slip properties, enhancing safety within the shower area.

Our offer includes two series of structural shower trays:

  • Nias boasting the highest C-class anti-slip rating,
  • Tierra with a B-class anti-slip rating.

How important is the size of the bathroom? Huge for the architect and designer, and almost negligible for structural shower trays made of cast mineral. Thanks to the ductility of this material and the wide range of dimensions, you can easily fit a shower tray into a small as well as a much larger bathroom space.

 In our portfolio you find small structured shower trays in square, rectangular and quadrant shapes in ready-made and most popular sizes: 70x70cm, 80x80cm, 80x90cm or 90x90cm, but also large ones reaching in size up to 100x200cm.

In addition, in the Nias range you will also find customised shower trays, the answer to the demanding needs of anyone facing the task of fitting out their bathroom. This individualisation makes it possible to create a structured shower tray that is perfectly tailored not only to the shower but also to the entire bathroom space.

The Tierra series comprises 55 dimensions, perfectly matching the needs of the market. The shower trays in this series have no rim, allowing the shower area to be harmoniously integrated into the overall bathroom.

The shallow depth of only 1.5 cm and the low flange make it easy to install both shower trays at the floor line. This solution is much more comfortable and also optically enlarges the bathroom space. It is also a key convenience, allowing for trouble-free and safer showering.
