From searching the Internet you may come to the conclusion that the only option to convert a bathtub into a shower would be with an acrylic shower base and sliding shower doors – but nothing could be further from the truth! In the article below check out 5 new and unique types of entries, bases and styles of glass being used in these conversion projects.
New Option 1 – No threshold barrier free shower base
It’s now possible using a glass reinforced plastic shower base to remove an old tub in a bathroom as small as 5’ x 7’ and make a one level roll in shower and wet room that is safe and stylish.
New Option 2 – Walk in curved glass block shower in a 60 x 32 or 60 x 34 base
Using either an acrylic or ready for tile base you can have a glass block walk in shower where a tub used to be! A stylish curved wall will make it score high on the cool scale.
New Option 3 – Using a shower shield with an acrylic base
Shower shields are usually constructed with a stationary glass enclosure plus a pivoting door that allows larger entries at the end of a shower. They provide a contemporary upscale style while simultaneously providing a safer entry.
New Option 4 – Roll in shower with an acrylic or ready for tile base
For many people a bath to shower conversion is an important choice to allow them to stay in their homes longer (or “age in place” as some people call it). A roll in barrier free shower provides access for someone who uses a walker, wheelchair or other mobility devise. The great thing is these showers don’t need like your in a hospital!
New Option 5 – Curved sliding glass enclosure
It’s always nice to have more elbow room in a shower stall. Using the “Bowfront” acrylic base and cost effective curved glass wall system by Fleurco – the small space previously occupied by a bathtub can become a focal point of the bathroom.
