Barrier Free Showers Aren’t Just For The Elderly

Starting your day with a shower used to be your favorite part of the morning.  Just like your morning coffee, a shower is invigorating and gets the blood flowing.  Getting older has changed that, and now there’s a fear of not getting over the step into your shower.  Therefore, a zero entry shower is the answer you’re looking for.  If you aren’t ready to move into an assisted living facility, I want to help you.  Let me show you how easy it is to add a curbless shower into your home.  Continue reading to see some great benefits of adding a zero entry shower into your home.

A Curbless Shower Is Visually Appealing

You don’t have to be in need of an accessible shower to appreciate the look of a curbless shower.  Unlike many accessible features, a curbless shower blends in with the surrounding area easily.  It is also worth noting that a zero entry shower is much easier to keep clean as well.  Think about it, one of the hardest areas to clean is the wall to floor transition. If you use a zero entry shower you eliminate the floor to wall transition in that area.  Another way a curbless shower is visually appealing is in it’s simplicity.  Eliminating the curb makes your shower appear larger, and that is another great benefit.

Installation Considerations

Installing one of these showers takes quite a bit of skill to do correctly.  With a standard shower the curb will help contain water from the faucet.  The water management system for a curbless shower needs to be properly installed.  Your shower will see far more water than your roof will in a year. For that reason, be sure that you hire a Certified Tile Installer.  You need to protect the investment you have made in your home.

A curbless shower will fit any design and bathroom type.  If you are looking for an upgrade that won’t kill the budget and still turn some heads, a zero entry shower is what you’re looking for.  If you have an accessibility need, certainly feel free to contact me directly.  I am here to help guide you in the process of successfully remodeling your bathroom.  Together, we can make your dream bathroom a reality.  Finally, I invite you to check out our tile store Legacy Bath and Tile in Columbia, MO.
