Bathrooms are one of the biggest motivators for homeowners to plan a remodel. While there are many reasons, often it is because they want their bathroom to feel like an oasis. A curbless shower can help create that oasis feel, but we want to share 5 reasons to consider a curbless shower from a different perspective.
HERE ARE 5 REASONS TO CONSIDER A CURBLESS SHOWER
They are space savers: Curbless showers save space in your bathroom! Whether they are designed for big or small spaces, we can create your curbless shower to fit your unique area. A curbless shower also has no high curb which creates seamless flooring that gives your bathroom a bigger feel.
They are practical: Do you have children? Think of the flexibility of showering children who have just come in from messy outdoor play and you can shower more than one child at a time in these showers as well! The curbless shower also grows with you, allowing you to age in place. With no curb, the shower is already outfitted to accommodate mobility aids meeting needs as you grow older making it safer for you.
They are easy to maintain: Whether you have bi-pass doors or no doors on your curbless shower, your shower area can be easier to clean by having a handheld showerhead. Using a handheld showerhead, you can spray down the walls at any time when they need cleaning. If you choose to go with an open curbless shower, you have no doors to consider. There are no hinges or door seals to wear out which is an added feature to easy maintenance. And when it comes to cleaning the floor, it can be done as you are cleaning the rest of the floor in your bathroom!
Designer look that adds a high-end value: Curbless showers give any bathroom a designer look that will add a high-end value to your home. You can show your personal style and create a beautiful focal point for your bathroom by choosing different colors, shapes, and textures in your tile work. When designing your shower, there is also a wide range of flexibility in adding benches, shelves, and heated floors to make it uniquely yours. We can help you design the perfect curbless shower for your space.
Easy Entry and Exit: Stepping over a bathtub or a curb in a shower can become a fall risk for both young children whose coordination and balance is not yet fully developed and for those beginning to age. Any time there is water involved, the floor can be slippery, and the step can be too high for anyone with mobility issues. A curbless shower offers a safer entry and exit where you simply walk in and walk out. If a wheelchair or walker is needed, there is no barrier.
