With a desire to have both a shower and bath in our bathrooms, most of us don't want to choose between the two. But, nowadays, more homeowners are striving to make space in the bathroom. 
Yet, there is a way to have the best of both worlds here. By adding a shower to your existing bath, you can have both a shower and a bath in the bathroom. Effortlessly enhancing your overall bathing experience, a shower added to a bath brings a new level of convenience and provides the perfect combination of relaxation and functionality.
Here, The Bathroom Showroom considers the advantages of having a bath with a shower, showcasing some of our bath shower choices for this set-up.

A Bath With Shower is Thoroughly Space-Saving and Practical

A big advantage of a shower over a bath is its space-saving nature. In today's fast-paced world, living spaces have become increasingly smaller. So, maximising every inch of available space is crucial. 
A shower installed over the bath occupies significantly less space when compared to a standalone shower enclosure. This makes it ideal for homes where space is limited. And for those homes with families, a shower bath is more helpful for young children.
However, a shower over the bath can also be used in unison with a shower enclosure. Couples may find this set-up more functional, with one being able to use a shower enclosure while the other uses the shower in the bath when both getting ready.

The Bathroom Showroom Top Picks Of Showers For Baths

The process of adding a shower to your bath has never been easier. With our range of superb baths and showers, you can seamlessly transform your bathing area into a versatile oasis. Our expert bathrooms team can guide you through the selection process and customise the solution to perfectly match your needs and preferences.
If you're looking to create a shower bath, here are some top picks that will transform your bathing routine into a blissful oasis.
  • A Rainfall Showerhead: Create a luxurious spa-like ambience with a rainfall showerhead that delivers a gentle cascade of water. Stimulating the sensation of standing under a soothing rain shower, these showers promote a refreshing and rejuvenating experience.
The Bathroom Showroom recommends the Grohe Rainshower SmartControl. A thoroughly innovative design, this energy and water-saving model boasts improved technology, a hand shower, and no less than four sprays.
  • A Handheld Showerhead: For added flexibility, a handheld showerhead that easily detaches from its holder makes for an ideal over-the-bath shower choice.  Shower riser rails are therefore perfect for this task as they’re the easiest way of turning a bath into a shower too. This allows you to direct the water exactly where you need it, whether it's for washing your hair, rinsing off soap, or targeting specific areas of your body.
The Bathroom Showroom recommends iflo Riser Rails to complete the look of your shower. From square to round, there's a shape and design to suit all baths here.
  • A Traditional Mixer Shower System: A more versatile choice, traditional mixer showers combine overhead showers with riser rails. This gives you the choice of two showering options for increased flexibility. Traditional mixer showers don’t have any electrical components either, making them simpler to install around the bath area. These shower choices can also be surface mounted, thus promoting a flush finish.  
The Bathroom Showroom recommends a traditional mixer shower like the iflo Wetherley that offers an adjustable riser rail height for added comfort. The Bristan Tangram is also a fabulous choice here for family-safe showering and a complete showering solution.
  • A Digital Shower: Embrace modern technology with a digital shower control system. These smart devices allow you to precisely monitor and adjust the water temperature, and flow rate, and even create personalised shower pre-sets for a customised bathing experience. Also, some digital showers can be easily used to fill your bath, making them the perfect addition for over-the-bath showers. 
The Bathroom Showroom recommends Mira digital showers. From Mira Mode to Mira Platinum, and Mira Activate, these first-class digital showers take showering to the next level, truly personalising the bathing experience for all users.
