Find the right shower for your country home

Country-chic shower room styles for a hotel-at-home appeal

In the morning it's a wake-up call, in the evening a soothing treat. A superb shower raises an everyday experience to something special, especially with well-designed fittings. Whether you opt for a wet room effect, or a smart shower enclosure - home showering has never been so hotel-chic.

Slim tray
‘Floor-level enameled shower surfaces like this tray provide easy access, anti-slip options for safer showering and greater comfort,' says Angela Ortmann-Torbett, Sales Director, Kaldewei. ‘The high surface quality shows not even the tiniest of scratches and, unlike tiled shower floors with grout lines, the smooth surface is easier to clean'.

Sliding doors
Slotted into a purpose-built alcove and featuring a sliding door, this elegant showering solution is a neat use of space. ‘The sliding door is handle-free with a simple slot in the glass to open it, giving a seamless, wet-room look and maximizing the space even in the most compact bathroom,' says Rob Whitaker, Creative Director, Fired Earth.

Curvy corner
‘Curves are a stylish option as they combine space-saving practicality with elegant form,' says Edel Nicholson, Marketing Manager, Merlyn Showering. ‘An offset quadrant enclosure like this also delivers a glamorous look'.

Seamless divide
‘Low-iron glass used here offers a crystal clear finish on the glass as opposed to the slight green tint sometimes noticeable in standard glass,' says Nicholas Cunild, Commercial Director, Matki. ‘The glass has a barely-there appearance, maintaining an elegant divide between shower and bathroom.'
