For the longest time, a tub and shower combination has been the standard bathroom setup. However, when smart and efficient designs were introduced to the market, homeowners started to adapt to zero threshold and curbless showers in the bathroom. In this post, shower replacement contractors at Total Bath Systems talk about the benefits of low or no-threshold showers.
A no-threshold shower, also called a barrier-free or curbless walk-in shower, is a shower that has no curb or edge surrounding it, making it flush with the bathroom flooring. Since it removes the threshold users normally have to step over, it becomes an accessible feature for family members of all ages and mobilities. It is a universal design that is extremely safe to navigate and can be large enough to accommodate mobility devices such as wheelchairs.
Easy to Clean
A shower without a curb feels less cluttered than a traditional shower space, making it easier to move around while cleaning the bathroom. It also presents fewer crevices to scrub and polish, significantly reducing the time and effort required to maintain the pristine condition of the shower, according to shower installation companies.
Another advantage to installing a no-threshold shower is it boasts a beautiful and seamless design. You can use the same flooring from the shower to the rest of the space, creating the impression of a spacious and airy interior. You can leave it wide open or, if you want to create a defined shower area, install a glass wall.
