Important Tips Before You Start
A few important tips before we start. It is important to make the template from heavy cardboard or hardboard. It is also important to note that the template should be full sized and 100% accurate to the shower tray you want to receive back.
Measure out all dimensions of the item and draw the template onto the card using pencil.
2. Check- Measure!
Double check your measurements! Remember the phrase ‘Measure twice cut once’. Once you are happy with the dimensions and shape, cut the template out.
3. Place Template In Location
Double check in the required position. i.e. place the template into the position of the new bespoke shower tray and check it is correct. If not make another one!
4. Mark Important Information
Mark on the template as much information as possible, e.g. Seen edges, wall, shower waste positions, any cut-outs. Use a marker pen to ensure the information is seen clearly.

Versital coloured shower trays are now the highest ranked ‘Searched for’ item on the Versital website. This move demonstrates just how far the consumer has come from the days of wanting white shower trays!
Historically shower trays have been a simple white finish; a utilitarian item without much thought for design requirements. The tide has changed with the consumer wanting ever more design focused products in which to express themselves and their homes style. The shower tray far from being a utilitarian object can now be something of a statement piece.
“The consumer have been contacting us for more and more interesting and unusual trays and more often than not want to use it as a focal point for their bathroom and something a bit different from the run of the mill. The tray pictures below is a case in point, in ‘O’hara’ from the Reflect range. It really does create an impact in the bathroom and allows the consumer to express their personality.”
