Transforming Small Spaces: A Budget-Friendly Shower Upgrade


Transforming Small Spaces, sometimes I get a job that’s a bit different. and moving into a new home is exciting, but sometimes you’re faced with challenges, especially when it comes to making a small bathroom more functional. In this blog post, we’ll share a success story of a young couple who wanted a good quality shower without breaking the bank. 

What can you do when you don’t  have a lot of cash left over for a full refurb. 

Section 1: The Challenge

1.1 Small Bathroom Woes

Meet our young couple facing the common dilemma of a small bathroom. They desired a refreshing shower experience but were limited by both space and budget constraints.

1.2 Assessing Options

With a tight budget, not a lot of space and not enough spare tiles for a full refurb, the idea of a shower replacement seemed daunting. The challenge was to find a solution that worked without an extensive overhaul.

Section 2: Budget-Friendly Strategy

 2.1 Bath In, Shower On

Rather than opting for a costly bath-to-shower conversion, the decision was made to leave the bath in place. A strategic and budget-friendly move that laid the foundation for an innovative solution.

2.2 The Magic of Shower Screens

Enter shower screens – a cost-effective way to create a designated shower space without the need for spare tiles. The couple chose a sleek and modern design to enhance the aesthetics of their small bathroom.

Section 3: The Essential Components 

3.1 Thermostatic Bath Shower Mixer

To ensure a comfortable and safe shower experience, a thermostatic bath shower mixer was added. A practical choice for regulating water temperature and making the most of the available space.

3.2 Bespoke Glass Screen

The key element of this budget-friendly solution was a bespoke glass screen. An aluminium pillar fixed at the top and bottom provided stability, creating a stylish and functional separation between the shower and bath.

3.3 New Riser Kit

To complete the transformation, a new riser kit was installed. This, combined with the bespoke glass screen, delivered a shower setup that maximised space and met the couple’s expectations.

Section 4: Trusting the Process

4.1 The Steve Factor

A skilled professional named Steve played a crucial role in bringing this budget-friendly vision to life. His expertise and attention to detail ensured the installation went smoothly, leaving the couple with a stylish and functional shower space.


In the end, our young couple achieved a dreamy shower space without a hefty price tag. By embracing a budget-friendly strategy of leaving the bath in place, adding a stylish shower screen, incorporating essential components, and trusting the expertise of professionals like Steve, they turned a small bathroom into a practical and beautiful oasis.

A low budget solution that works….a very happy customer 😊
