Curbless Walk-In Showers
Everyone, from grandkids to grandparents, can use it. As healthcare expenditures continue to rise and several generations living under the same roof become a more common occurrence for many American families, it’s more critical than ever to have a bathroom that can accommodate family members. A 4” tall shower curb that a teenager may easily step over can be a mountain for their granny. By removing the curb, the shower becomes an “equal opportunity” zone.
Simpler to clean than a shower enclosure: Cleaning a small corner or alcove shower enclosure may be an excruciatingly painful experience for your elbows. The removal of a curb effectively opens up the shower space to the bathroom, making it easier to reach in and clean.
Show off your stylish shower: A shower enclosure with a curb and a door block the view of complex stone, tile, or ornate wall panels. An open barrier-free shower gives sightlines into the wet area, allowing a luxury shower to be displayed.
Maximize every square inch: My friend in Italy had a curbless one-level shower in a 4′ x 6′ bathroom. There was no separate bathing area in this utilitarian area. The room only had a showerhead, vanity, and toilet fixed on the walls. While your shower doesn’t have to be as simple, it’s comforting to know that you can make better use of space by removing the barrier of an enclosure and a curbed shower base in tiny bathrooms.
Removes the cost and inconvenience of installing a shower door: Cleaning shower doors can be time-consuming, and shower doors are not inexpensive. A curbless walk-in shower eliminates the necessity (and cost) for a shower door.
They can be installed in small spaces: While a huge shower is lovely, not everyone has the space they would like. However, just because you need or want a curbless shower doesn’t mean you need the space found in a million-dollar home.
Installation of a curbless shower pan necessitates skill and attention to detail.
Otherwise, the entire shower could be a big flop, which would be terrible.
Plus, you’d be wasting a lot of time and money, so leave it to the experts!
So, hopefully, these points have helped you a bit with making your decision about a bathroom remodel for your home. Whether you choose one of the many available doorless showers designs, a curbless shower, or both; you’re sure to get many years of comfort and enjoyment for both yourself and your family from your new and improved shower. Just like those beautiful homes on TV, your home will not just be a testament to the benefits of home improvement right now but also in the future.
Remember, you don’t have to suffer with a small outdated shower that’s hard to clean and unpleasing to take a shower in. If it’s ugly, outdated, or just plain in need of a makeover, there are plenty of great design options to choose from.
