80×80 shower enclosure: real example in a bathroom

In a small bathroom, the size of the bathroom furniture plays a very important role, as does the shower enclosure. An 80×80 shower cubicle often finds its natural place in square bathrooms which in a small space must offer complete equipment and great comfort. We also talked about it here.


For this reason, Relax has provided various solutions, to allow even those who have a bathroom with not exactly generous dimensions to be able to install a quality shower enclosure.


An 80×80 shower enclosure leaves a margin of safety, the handful of centimeters sufficient to prevent accidental bumps of the elbows on the walls or on the glass, thus giving the perception of greater freedom of use and comfort. The arrangement of the taps is absolutely indifferent so as to exclude the possibility of incurring the risk of misunderstandings during the hydraulic preparation phase.


In the example shown here, it is possible to see a practical example of a 80×80 cm shower enclosure, inserted at an angle, where it is possible to use it without occupying important spaces. Maximum attention must be paid to the choice of the opening of the shower enclosure in a bathroom of this size. It is usually better to prefer a door that opens inside the shower enclosure: this allows you to fully exploit the space inside the bathroom.

80×80 shower enclosure: the recommended openings

There are many openings that are suitable for an 80×80 cm shower enclosure, but which are the most suitable for making the most of a space like this? The solutions are different, each suitable for one or more particular situations.


An 80×80 shower enclosure offers more choice without directing the user too much towards a sliding model. For balance in the proportions, arrangement of the taps and bathroom layout, it is often possible to choose a swing door combined with the fixed side to have a large entrance without risking excessively compromising the watertightness. If, on the other hand, there were impediments to full swing opening, it would always be possible to opt for a saloon or folding door.


All Relax shower enclosures are characterized by TÜV SÜD certification, completely Made in Italy and available in different sizes and finishes.
