With the huge array of shower trays that are currently available we understand that picking the right one can be difficult. Clearly the shower tray has to be the correct size to fit snugly into the shower enclosure. Naturally this alone will narrow the available options, but there are many other things apart from the shower tray sizes that might have to be taken into account. It is worth remembering that although the principal reason for having a shower tray is to ensure that water is prevented from damaging the floor beneath it and causing damage to any ceiling or room below, they can also be an attractive feature.
Which material for the shower base will suit the enclosure the best, normally these shower trays are manufactured in either acrylic or acrylic tone capped resin, occasionally they can be of pure plastic. What colour is going to suit the bathroom or shower room the best. Traditionally white has been the colour of choice, but this is no longer the “go to colour” as may colour options can be chosen, although this may be subject to a special order and a short waiting time.
At Bathroom Planet you’ll find trays to suit a huge array of shower enclosures, wet rooms and walk showers.

Shower Tray Materials
When it comes to choosing your shower tray choosing one that is made from the correct material can be very important. There are 3 options we sell online when it comes to material including acrylic capped abs stone resin, solid stone resin and standard acrylic shower trays.
Firstly, we have Acrylic capped abs stone resin shower trays. This style of shower tray is known for being quite heavy and durable. They have the same finish as standard acrylic trays making the shower tray more scratch resistant. Merlyn have a range of this style of trays called Touchstone.
Then we have solid stone resin shower trays. These shower trays having been becoming an increasingly popular choice given their durability and range of high-quality finishes.
Acrylic shower trays are also a very popular option. These trays are light and easy to install and can be more cost effective than stone resin trays. Check out Zamori’s offering to learn more about acrylic shower tray.
