ABOUT SHOWER BATHS
Shower baths combine the functions of a bath and a shower. They are particularly useful in smaller bathrooms, where there is not room for a bath and a separate shower enclosure. Because all water is caught in the bath, they are much less prone to leak, compared to a shower tray. A common design has a straight rear edge, straight ends, and curved front swelling out at one end to accommodate the showering area. Compatible curved glass shower screens are supplied. Other designs are curved at one or both ends. Traditional claw-foot roll-top shower baths are also available. Leading suppliers of shower baths are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
