Curbed showers designs

By Bathroom Designer

Kneewalls, curbs, and glass keep water in

Curbed showers allow a great deal of flexibility with the type and height of the walls and the number of showerheads. With a single showerhead, the shower doesn’t require a door if the opening is out of the spray area (drawing above). The shower isn’t barrier free, however. To keep water in the shower, a curb approximately 51/2 in. to 6 in. high runs across the 24-in.-wide opening. Plumbing the shower control next to the entrance lets you adjust the temperature before entering the shower spray. Controls are usually 48 in. off the floor, but 42 in. is fine on the 48-in.-tall kneewall I’d use here. Glass panels above the kneewall contain deflected water, but might not be necessary.

Multiple showerheads typically require that mixing valves be plumbed on the same wall as the showerhead. Because of the extensive spray coverage, a shower door is a must. In this case, a 36-in.-tall kneewall with glass panels above maximizes light. For comfort, the bench should be at least 12 in. deep and have room underneath for feet.

Curbless shower

Dispensing with a typical shower enclosure and sloping the floor to direct water to the drain creates a bathroom with clean, modern lines that can be made accessible. In the bathroom shown here, the shower area is located as far from the room entrance as possible. Placement of the sink and the toilet is crucial. If fixtures are less than 12 in. from the shower’s spray area or if you want to keep an area dry, temperedglass splash walls can shield fixtures as well as doorways from spraying water. A splash wall needs to be only as high as the showerhead and as deep as the fixture it’s protecting. I try to keep the splash wall a minimum of 16 in. from the centerline of the toilet, and at least 3 in. from the edge of a sink. Near doorways, I make the splash wall as deep as the door is wide.

Bathroom Curtains, Blinds and Shower Curtains

Bathroom privacy is often an issue in urban areas, requiring the selection of blinds or curtains to cover bathroom windows.

Sometimes the use of translucent glazing is an option but then you lose a lot of natural light.

Using blinds or curtains means that you have choices, you can have them up or drawn, for general bathroom use or when you need privacy – they can be lowered or closed.

Shower curtains are another area covered in this section of the web site. They are useful for privacy as well as keeping you warmer in the shower and reducing the water leaving the shower area. Shower curtains are an ideal way to makeover a bathroom and a very popular bathroom accessory.

Tastes are very different and so are people. Some people prefer their home design to be futuristic or minimalist and modern bathroom or even classic and welcoming. And once you choose one of these styles, you must also be careful to match the smaller items, too. The shower curtain for example is pretty important for the general design of the bathroom, so if your bathroom is cool and modern maybe you would like this great Urban Beat Bathroom Shower Curtain.

This shower curtain has a striking and modern design and can be used in any kind of bathroom. The geometrical patterns and the contrast between red and white and black make it the centerpiece for your bathroom. You can say anything you want, but I bet the shower curtain will not go unnoticed. Any way, it is nice-looking and very useful, too, as it long and wide enough to cover the whole bath tub and it is made of polyester, which makes it perfect to use in the dampness of the bathroom. It is very easy to clean.
