    Step By Step To Creating A Template

    If you wish to have a shower tray made to a precise shape or size, a template is usually the best way to ensure a perfect fit for the bathroom. Follow this step by step guide to help you create the perfect bespoke shower tray for your bathroom area.

    Tools required:

    Maker pen
    Tape measure
    Heavy cardboard/hardwood

    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.

    1. Measure

    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.
