A shower tray costs on average between €150 and €800, depending on the color, material, brand, size...and so on. Are you having a walk-in shower installed without a shower tray but directly on the tiled floor? Then you save yourself these costs.

The cheapest shower enclosures can be found from as little as €100, and this can easily run into the thousands, depending on your personal taste.
