Spring Showers with Glass Inspirations

april spring shower

The clocks have gone forward, the evenings are getting lighter, the countryside is full of beautiful blooms and baby lambs can be found exploring the grassy meadows up and down the British Isles. Of course, April in the United Kingdom does also mean that we stand a high chance of being greeted with torrential downpours along with the glorious sunshine.

But if you thought April showers were about to dampen your mood, think again as at Glass Inspirations we can guarantee that our wide range of shower enclosures are guaranteed to put a spring in your step.

To help you on your way to finding that perfect shower enclosure, we have put together our top 5 tips to help you decide on what design is best for you.

Style: Frameless, walk in or over the tub

Bathrooms can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, so it is hardly surprising that shower enclosures also come in a huge range of options from quadrant, rectangular and square to compact or contemporary.

Whether you are seeking to create that luxurious feel for your wet room or need something for your small en-suite bathroom, Glass Inspirations can tailor designs for that bespoke feel and look offering you full peace of mind and flexibility.

Space: Measure and then measure again

Before deciding on your desired design for your enclosure, it is crucial that you assess how much space is actually available for you to use within your bathroom, en-suite or wet room. This will help to dictate what options are feasible for you.

Don’t forget to take into account the width that may be required for shower doors, space between sinks and bath tubs. If fitting an over-the-tub shower panel, choose a width that will fit over your tub to ensure your bathroom doesn’t end up becoming an indoor swimming pool!


Think about who in your family will be using the shower and their height as this may affect whether you decide to opt for a fixed position shower head or a moveable design that provides more comfort and adjusts to the needs of your family unit.

Finishing Touches

Do you want a traditional clear shower enclosure or a frosted effect for some extra privacy? Some finishes that you may wish to consider for your glass shower enclosure include the following:

• Mirror
• Smoked
• Semi–mirrored
• Striped

Whatever option you do decide to go with, at Glass Inspirations we always provide toughened safety glass that complies with industry standards to ensure that you and your family can enjoy a relaxing shower safely.

It is not just the glass enclosures that you may wish to add some finishing touches to, you may also want to create a focal point within your family bathroom by installing a colourful glass splash back or alternatively a personalised design such as tropical rainforests, a cityscape or a quirky pattern.
