What size is a walk-in shower?

If you’re considering replacing your regular shower or bathtub, you might have some questions about the size and measurements of walk-in showers. At Premier Care in Bathing, we know that bathrooms come in all shapes and dimensions which is why we offer a range of walk-in showers to suit both your space and your needs.

Our walk-in showers are an excellent choice for seniors or for anyone with mobility needs. Their ultra low-level access makes them safer and easier than traditional showers and baths to get in and out of, and they come with a range of optional safety features too.

What size shower is best for your bathroom

The size for your ideal walk-in shower depends on the dimensions and configuration of your current bathroom. Walk-in showers are often seen as only suitable for spacious bathrooms, however we do offer a large range of showers to fit most bathroom layouts.

If you have enough space, you might want to consider a larger walk-in shower such as Revive. On the other hand, if your bathroom is on the small side, or if you’re choosing a walk-in shower for an en-suite, you might want to scale down to make sure you have enough room to safely manoeuvre around, particularly if you use a wheelchair user. In this case, our Invigorate walk-in shower could be a great option for you.

Generally speaking, when it comes to the size of a mobility walk-in shower, we recommend opting for the largest width possible in order to have sufficient room to shower safely and create a more enjoyable experience.

Walk-in shower dimensions

How much floor space a walk-in shower takes is determined by the size of the shower tray (which is measured by length, width, and height). It also depends on the type of tray you choose: rectangular, alcove, corner, quadrant, and quadrant offset.

Square and rectangular shower tray: these are ideal if you have a lot of room to play with. Our smallest square shower tray is 800 x 800mm while our largest shower tray is 1200 x 1200mm. Rectangular shower trays start at 1200 x 700mm while the largest rectangular trays are 1800 x 820mm.

Alcove or corner shower tray: alcove walk-in shower trays are a great way of making use of awkward or unused space in your bathroom. Our smallest alcove shower tray is 1200 x 700mm while our largest shower tray is 1800 x 820mm.

Quadrant and quadrant offset shower tray: they are also a great choice for smaller rooms and even en-suites. Our smallest quadrant shower tray is 900 x 900mm while our largest shower tray is 1200 x 900mm.

Because easy access is one of the most vital factors in a walk-in shower, we offer ultra-low shower trays starting at just 40mm in height. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to sink the tray into the floor to create lower, or even level, access.
