Most of us would love to sink into a luxurious freestanding bath, but a growing number are ditching the tub entirely and opting for a practical and stylish shower instead. Essential for busy family households in the scramble to get to work and school, a quick morning blast is invigorating and helps to save on water.

You’ll be pleased to hear that swapping your old tub for a sparkling new shower enclosure is actually a fairly straightforward task, which can be completed over the course of a weekend. Just follow our eight-step plan…

  1. Measure your bath and check plumbing – Many rectangular shower enclosures are designed to fit the footprint of a standard straight bath. Simply measure yours to find the right dimensions. In the majority of cases, all the pipework will be at one end of the tub, which will help when re-plumbing for your shower tray and shower. If you’re unsure, contact a plumber for expert advice.
  2. Go online – Go to VictoriaPlum.com, the online bathroom specialists, for fresh inspiration, expert advice and the very latest in shower enclosure designs. You’ll also find plenty of excellent deals and discounts.
  3. Pick your shower enclosure – Choose your favourite rectangular shower enclosure, not forgetting those all-important footprint measurements. All VictoriaPlum.com shower enclosures are easy to install, with generous adjustments for out of true walls. Many come complete with a matching tray for the perfect fit.
  4. Choose your shower – There really is an option for everyone. From simple slider rail kits to full smart showering systems, there’s a perfect shower to suit your needs.
  5. Choose your wall covering – Internal walls within your enclosure need added protection from splashes. Tiles are traditional, but shower wall panels are now a popular choice, and can be fitted directly over the top of existing wall coverings.
  6. Finishing touches
    For high impact with minimum effort, add a new coat of paint to your walls and choose quality accessories to complement your shower.
  7. Hassle-free delivery – Complete your purchase and your items will be delivered quickly and carefully, direct to your home – it couldn’t be more straightforward.
  8. Installation – Your plumber will complete your installation, for a stunning bath to shower transformation. Now, enjoy your stylish, new shower enclosure!
