Our guide to choosing a shower tray

Krion shower trays


Whether you're going for a full bathroom renovation, replacing your bath for a shower tray, or updating your old shower tray; it's time to get to work and choose a decent shower tray.

We know it isn't always easy working out which pieces are right for your bathroom. So we've put together this guide to give you some pointers on choosing the right shower tray.

What are the main things to think about when choosing a shower tray?

To make sure you get just the right shower tray, you need to consider a few essential points. Of course, size and aesthetics matter - they're both fundamental to an attractive bathroom design - but there are other equally important aspects to consider when you're making your choice.

  • Non-slip capacity

Choosing a shower tray made in a non-slip material is an absolute priority. This means you can do away with annoying and unhygienic shower tray mats.

  • Resistant and quality material

Making sure the material is resistant - to both blows and chemical products - is extremely important in this part of the house. When making your choice, any shower tray made in a material that can withstand accidents is a definite plus.

  • Hygiene

Optimal hygiene conditions should be guaranteed with any shower tray. If they're manufactured in an antibacterial material with zero porosity to prevent the spread of germs, this is another plus. It won't just be easier to clean. It also ensures microorganisms and fungi will be prevented from developing on the surface.

  • Design

You also want to make sure you get the right style to suit your bathroom. If you don't get this right, you could ruin the overall aesthetic of your bathroom and end up with a major lack of personality in your bathroom.


Which shower tray suits which type of bathroom?

The size and shape of your shower tray are two fundamental elements to take into account, and will depend on the size and shape of your bathroom. Let's take a look at three types of shower trays.

  1. Square shower tray. These types of shower tray suit small to medium-sized bathrooms. Because they're positioned in the corner, they make the most of the space you have.
  2. Rectangular shower traysThese are the perfect replacement for a bath, or will suit anyone looking for a more spacious shower - if your bathroom dimensions allow it. But they're not for really small bathrooms - they'll reduce your usable space even more.
  3. Angular shower trays. These are great choice for particularly small bathrooms. An angular shower tray can be positioned with the straight edges into a corner and the rounded part facing out. They're the smallest ones available, making them ideal for smaller or guest bathrooms.
  4. That allow to install a shower screen. There are some types of plates that, due to their design and finish, it is not possible to install a screen on their profile, having to resort to other types of more uncomfortable solutions.
