    Hi all,

    I have a gap of 1450mm for a nice long shower tray. My only problem is that the nearest lengths for my gap are 1400 and 1500. I wish there was a 1450 shower tray!

    Anyway. I guess I'll have to opt for the 1400 shower tray. How can I lose the extra 50mm that I have?

    My tiles will be roughly 6mm either side, plus 6mm of adhesive, this still leaves a 2.6cm gap that I need to fill.

    Any ideas are welcome!

    Piece of upvc trim as fitted to widows, doors etc angled so that water runs back into the tray

    Is the pipe work to be boxed in?
    Tiles overhang the tray so not part of your calculation.

    Have you considered a Roman Lumin8 Colossus 1450x700 tray?
