Shower cabins have been a huge hit in the market for quite a few years now, and sales are not slowing down anytime soon. They are famous for a reason. People love shower cabins since they are freestanding and self-sufficient. They are also easy to clean, so they won’t take up too much of your time when you are doing your regular house-cleaning routine. If you are looking to step up your showering experience and add a bit of luxury to your home, shower cabins are perfect for you.

Not sure what to go for? No problem! We have just the answers for you. Down below, we have listed the features and specifications you have to determine to be able to get the right one for your bathroom.


There are two choices you can go for. You can either opt for an open top or closed top. The open top is when you have no top for the shower cabin. A closed top, on the other hand, does have a top.


There are various dimensions you can have for your shower cabin. The three most popular ones are the large corner, small corner, and elongated. The large corner and small corner are self-explanatory. But, elongated is a bit different and unique. The elongated ones are still designed to fit in a corner of the room, but they are more luxurious-looking compared to the large and small corner shower cabins. These complete showers have more interior space because they are longer down one side. You can choose if you want a left-handed or right-handed unit for your elongated shower cabin.


There are various shapes available. You can either choose semi-circle, rectangular or square. The more popular options are the square and rectangular ones since they can maximise every bit of space you have. They can be placed in a corner, and you can still open and close the glass door without a problem. Semi-circle shapes are okay for people who can afford the extra space it will take up. Since this type has curved glass doors, you have to place the other bathroom fixtures farther away to make room for the opening and closing of the glass door.


You have two choices. You can choose either a tinted or non-tinted glass for the exterior surface of the shower cabin. Your decision will depend on how much privacy you want. The tint can be as opaque or as transparent as you want. Just remember how the tinting percentage works. The lower the percentage, the darker the tone is. The higher the percentage, the lighter the tone is.

The tinted glass has a lot of different colour variations, but it is better to go for black or white if you are considering it so that it will look sleek and it can match the other bathroom fixtures, your wall colour scheme and the tiles in the room.

These are the four things you should consider if you are looking for the perfect shower cabin for your home.
