With the internet there are now many different options to locate a cheap shower enclosure. If you visit a few bathroom showrooms you will quickly realise that prices can fluctuate massively from around £100 up to over £1000. Typically, cheap showers will lack certain higher grade features and utilise cheaper materials to realise that lower price tag.
For example, a cheap shower enclosure will not come with features such as an overhead rainfall shower, built-in shower on handrail, copper mixing taps, hydromassage back jets or thermostatic mixer valve. Other price cutting techniques will revolve around the quality of materials used and the thickness of the material. A cheap shower may use 4mm tempered glass with a thin acrylic surround. Whereas, a more expensive shower may use 6-10mm tempered safety glass and a high grade acrylic with several layers of fibreglass reinforcement. The finished product will often drastically vary in both its sturdiness and weight.
Having said this, great deals and cheap showers are everywhere to be found. If you search hard enough then you can sometimes stumble upon luxury showers at a cheap price. The following points will give you some ideas about how to locate a cheap shower for your bathroom. Do your research first and then decide upon a realistic budget that can achieve the finish you desire.
