7 Reasons Why You Need a Modern Designer Shower Tray

Adobe Spark (2)What does your bathroom look like right now? Is your shower the centrepiece or a ghastly pit that you hope no one notices?

But you notice it, right? How can you not. Every morning you’re staring down as the water drains down an old, unstylish shower tray. Exactly how clean do your feet feel when you’ve stepped out? Keeping a shower tray looking pristine and new is hard work. More work than it’s worth.

The problem with plastic shower trays is the quality. Not only do they carry a higher risk of breaking but they simply don’t have a high-quality feel. Every day you shower you’re standing on plastic and you can’t ignore that.

Then, as time goes by and your shower tray starts to age, the quality drops even further. Odd looking stains start to appear and the plastic can sometimes begin to yellow. Scrubbing away for hours at the stains will only get you so far. Never again will your shower tray be shinning like new.

Have a look at the images of these low level shower trays – note how their design could fit perfectly with any modern bathroom design and imagine how they’d fit into yours.

2 - Round Solid Stone for Supreme Quality and Feel

It’s early morning, the day is ahead of you. Imagine feeling the cool, smooth, refreshing and invigorating stonework under your feet as you wash and get ready for the day. Imagine stepping out of the shower feeling as illustrious as the shower tray below you.

You don’t get that with an ordinary shower tray design. For the luxury lifestyle so many desire, your home needs to look and feel the part. That includes your shower.

Class, elegance, style: it’s not just the stunning look of the resin stone. It’s the feel of luxury. It’s the knowledge that you’re standing on 100% natural stone resin, a handcrafted designer shower tray that looks and feels the part.

Solid stone resin is extremely robust and durable. It’s the perfect material for your shower. The non-porous structure of resin makes it very difficult to stain. There’s nowhere for the dirt to hide and cling to. Not even solid granite can match that.

These low level shower trays are practical. The solid stone is unbelievably strong and resistant. It’s able to withstand a lot of weight, daily use and frequent onslaughts of water.

3 - Round Low Level Design

A stone resin shower tray is the complete opposite of the ungraceful plastic tub design we are so familiar with seeing. Take a look at the smooth, discreet style of the designer shower tray.

The unique dome cover at the side of the tray is both elegantly shaped and practical. No one with a designer shower tray need look down a gaping shower drain. Furthermore, the position of the high-quality dome keeps it discreetly out of the way yet an essential part of the overall design.

Hovering only 10mm from the floor, these designer shower trays will help keep your bathroom feeling like an open space and each day a breath of fresh air as you enter the shower.

The result?

These shower trays mould effortlessly and seamlessly into your current bathroom design. The slim design ensures that the shower tray will never be an eye-sore, neither will you trip over it in the morning. It’s been perfectly designed to be much easier to use than an average shower tray and its graceful shape and design make it an impressive yet practical addition to your bathroom.

Not only are these low line trays perfect for your shower, but the low sloping design make them an excellent choice for wet rooms that faultlessly flow from bathrooms to shower areas.

4 - Round Masterfully tried and tested

Despite being so low to the floor with slim elegant slopes, these shower trays can cope with a flow rate of 33 litres of water per minute. The average UK shower water flow is only 17 litres per minute.* This shower tray truly is a master at draining away the water without spilling a drop.

You won’t ever be left standing in a pool of dirty shower water as you wash. There won’t be any splashes, leaks or overflows from these shower trays either. Surprising, isn’t it? The slimmest, most shallow slopes, yet not a drop is wasted. These shower trays have been meticulously tried and tested for quality, looks and usability. Check, check and check.

This makes them perfect for use in wet rooms. With a low line shower tray like these designer ones, you need not worry about waterproofing the entire room: the shower tray has extraordinary control; it’s a master at draining away water quickly and efficiently.

The hard stone resin material is incredibly strong and hard-wearing. It’s the ultimate shower tray material, being able to withstand use day after day without wear from draining away all that water. Stone resin shower trays are far superior to plastic cheaper options. They’re high-quality, usable, durable and trustworthy. They have passed the tests to prove it.

5 Self-cleaning vortex design

You might think a natural stone, high quality product needs to be pampered and carefully maintained to keep it looking so polished and perfect.

However, these designer shower trays are crafted with a self-cleaning vortex design. The sophisticated lines of the shower tray direct all dirt and water down to be drained away, leaving no puddles that would form and leave marks as they dry.

Shower trays are no longer a nightmare to clean! Never again will you be required to get down on your knees to clean, scrub and care for a shower tray to keep it looking pristine. These designer shower trays will never yellow as they age; their durable nature ensures the colour you pick for your shower tray is the colour that stays from the first to last use. This easy to maintain material is also much more hygienic than alternative plastic shower tray options.

Stone resin materials are non-porous and therefore highly stain-proof. The pores in some other shower tray materials can create perfect crevices for bacteria, mould and dirt to gather in – that won’t ever be a problem with resin stone. Visually the surface is impeccably smooth and microscopically stone resin reaches a level of smoothness that is unmatched.

This may sound like a slippery material, almost dangerous to stand on when wet. But be reassured, the shower trays are easy to grip and have been tested for safety and practicality purposes. The material is cut and crafted by experts. These shower trays are the hygienic answer to your shower tray nightmares.

6 - Round Effortless Installment

By this point you may be thinking that a heavy stone shower fixture must be a nightmare to fit. But you’d be mistaken.

Purchasing and picking up or having your shower tray delivered won’t ever be a problem; once packaged securely they don’t require specialist handling while they’re in transit.

Installing your designer shower tray is a very simple and easy process. The tray is as light as possible for a stone material due to the ultra slim design – without impacting on the natural tensile strength of the shower tray.

The process is no different to installing a standard shower tray, yet the result is a million times better. You can achieve the luxury look of a professionally designed and constructed bathroom by selecting one of these shower trays and installing it yourself with no hassle. Simply find the right size shower tray for your bathroom and install it quickly where your previous shower tray was; ready for use. Whether you’re replacing your old shower tray or cutting a very shallow hole for your new shower, it’s an easy job that’s no different to installing any other shower.

That’s why you shouldn’t even hesitate to invest in these trays – they are superior in each and every aspect, including instalment. There is absolutely no aggravation. It is simple!
