    Shower cubicle units are free standing and can be installed in the bathroom or can provide an en-suite facility within the bedroom. If you need to move downstairs to live then a Shower/Toilet cubicle could be installed within the designated bedroom area, if there is sufficient space, to give you access to essential facilities without requiring structural alterations. Certain models of 3 sided shower/toilet cubicles can be installed in as small an area as 1550mm x 710mm.
