Curbless (Walk-In) Showers
Ottawa Accessibility Renovations
A curbless shower is a shower that has no edges, steps, or barriers on the floor. These showers are usually made from a single, continuous floor slope that allows water to drain away from the shower.
Curbless showers are becoming increasingly popular, as they provide a safe and accessible showering experience. This type of shower eliminates the need for a step-over barrier, making them ideal for seniors and people with mobility issues. Additionally, they are much easier to clean and maintain, as the lack of a door threshold means that there is no extra space for dirt and bacteria to collect.
If you are considering a curbless shower, it is important to consider the size and layout of the bathroom, as well as the type of flooring. You may need to install a waterproof membrane under the shower to ensure that water does not seep into other areas of the bathroom or damage the flooring. Additionally, you will need to choose fixtures, such as a showerhead, faucet, and drain, that are compatible with the space.
Curbless showers can be a great option for those looking for a safe, accessible shower. With careful planning and the right fixtures, you can create a beautiful and functional bathroom.
