- Off topic – a question about wet rooms/shower enclosures
Sorry guys, but you’re always the font of all knowledge.
We are in the process of getting a new bathroom, and this will include a separate shower.
Sadly we aren’t having a wet room – just a slimline stone tray and a glass screen.
We’d like something like this:
My question is – would we be spraying water all over the bathroom and should we really have an end panel as well? Like this:
(apologies for bigness)
Anyone got any experience of option 1?Posted 5 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber

Depends what you are doing in the shower… 😉Posted 5 years ago
I would, it is sooo difficult to not get water everywhere – and you can bet that guests or kids won’t be as fussy as you are.cinnamon_girlSubscriber
Are gals permitted to answer your question? 😉
I have a shower with a two piece glass screen (one piece is curved), see link. The tray is shallow and two different heights.
Now … water does not splash outside of glass BUT, and this will sound really pathetic, it can be a little drafty not being completely enclosed.
The other thing to bear in mind is that it’s really easy for hair to be blocking the plughole which will result in the water level rising!Posted 5 years agohs125Member
Mine is more like option 2. With a large fixed shower head directly above, no water will leave the enclosure, until you get in and stand under it. Then you will get a small amount of fine spray will make it’s way out. I don’t find this enough to be a problem, as it is such a small amount. Less than a wet footprint.Posted 5 years ago
Also I don’t have the second movable shower head, as I thought it could lead to problems.
I think any shower that is not completely enclosed will have some water find it’s way out onto the floor, but I think it is much easier keeping clean a shower with no door, no hinges, no magnetic or rubber seals and no overlapping glass.StonerSubscriber
End panel AND a half door. It keeps the splash in the cubicle – and it’s a big cubicle.
Word of advice though – any open shower cubicle like that will suck cooler air from low in the bathroom in through the opening and past your goolies. You should know these things.

Got one pretty much like the first pic you put up, with the shower at the far end. No problem to far with water getting everywhere even though I though there would be. I wouldn’t worry about it.
If you want I can give you measurements of length of shower tray and how far the shower head is inPosted 5 years agocouldashouldawouldaMember
My 2p’s worth: ours has a half “door” at the end – opposite the shower – so more like photo 2. As our shower head is directly overhead and pointing to the floor there is only a really small amount of spray that gets through the “open” bit. If we had a wall mounted shower head (like in Stoner’s photo) there would probably be a different result without a full wall opposite it.Posted 5 years ago
