Busy lives mean less time for long soaks in the tub, and more desire for invigorating showers! The trend today in homes is for large, luxurious showers with glass enclosures more like the open, spacious designs that one expects in a spa. Homeowners are choosing low and no threshold options for easy accessibility.
Bathrooms may not be getting larger, but the shower definitely is! Often, we receive requests to remove an old tub and install a larger shower.
Some homeowners go so far as to convert their bathrooms to a European wet room style bath – the whole room is waterproofed to provide a curbless shower experience.
Does this strike a cord with you? If you have been considering going with the flow and turning your master bath into a water-proof wet room style with open shower, perhaps it is time make the decision final and call your favorite, trusted contractor. This is not something you should trust to your local handyman – waterproofing an entire bathroom should be done by a licensed professional.
