These sliding shower doors above (now only £199) bring refinement and sophistication with ease and a particular design like this is ideal for small bathrooms that are looking to save up on space.
The uniqueness of this shower enclosure lies in its completely transparent walls, which allow for ample visibility from all sides. The sliding doors once again make it a compact unit and it form complies with modern minimalism. The intelligent use of dark background tiles further accentuates its transparent brilliance. Bring home the good times!
Corner spaces can be hard to deal with, no matter where they exist. A shower enclosure is a perfect way to use this forgotten space to the hilt. The framed glass brings a sense of sturdiness along with it. If you are going for largely neutral shades to create a more soothing atmosphere, then brighten up the setting with a few flowers or some natural green.

While a normal glass door that uses hinges takes up extra space every time you open it, the sliding door does away with that conundrum here. The sliding doors are especially useful here as a normal door would make the entire bathroom cramped for space. Smart use of art also helps lighten up the atmosphere in a chic manner.

Designing a beautiful shower enclosure is as much about ensuring that it blends in with its surroundings as it is about shower space itself. A touch of green, a beautiful window with drapes, some wall art combine to gives this sliding glass door shower enclosure a comforting look.
