Coloured shower enclosures: define the style of your bathroom

colourful shower enclosures


The bathroom is one of the most personal and functional spaces in any home or hotel. Shower enclosures not only play an essential role by separating spaces and preventing splashing, but have also become a key element in bathroom décor. Your choice of the colour of a shower enclosure can completely transform the appearance of a bathroom, adding style, depth and personality. 

Sustainability is now a vital aspect of shower enclosure manufacture, calling for new approaches to how bathrooms are designed and work. At Krion, we are pioneers in adopting environmentally-friendly practices, reflecting our commitment not only to the quality and beauty of our products, but also to minimising their environmental impact. 

Our shower enclosures, which incorporate sustainable glass, represent a new industry standard, making them the smart option. We have set a target for 2024 of ensuring that more than half of the glass used in our shower enclosures contains at least 20% of recycled material. This initiative not only reduces the use of natural resources and the emission of pollutants during manufacturing, but also promotes the circular economy by incorporating recycled pre-consumer and post-consumer materials.

Moreover, the frames of our shower enclosures will contain a minimum of 50% of recycled material, ensuring a life cycle that is more respectful of the planet. 

What colour shower enclosure to choose?

When choosing the colour of a shower enclosure, it is important to consider the general style of the bathroom, the lighting and the desired effect.

Light colours can expand the space visually, while dark tones add a touch of elegance and depth. 

Consistency with the colour of other bathroom elements, such as tiles, toilets and accessories, is essential to achieve a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing design.
