AN IMPORTANT FEATURE IN UNIVERSAL DESIGN, ARE SAFE, COMFORTABLE AND ACCESSIBLE
A curbless shower is a ubiquitous feature of Universal Design, or ‘remaining-in-place.’ (Universal design simply means configuring a space to accommodate all users, regardless of age, mobility, or ability.) Because a curbless shower has no lip at the floor, it is more easily accessible for those with limited mobility or in a wheelchair.
Most spas have curbless showers, and the clean, minimalist design can be easily incorporated into a home bath. Many curbless showers have no door, or use a shower curtain for ease getting in and out. Otherwise a floor to ceiling glass panels with door give a very open look for a shower.
UNIVERSAL DESIGN IS BEAUTIFUL DESIGN
Although curbless showers are highly functional, even utilitarian, they certainly can be beautiful as well. There are hundreds of tile, glass, and fixture selections that run the gamut of urban chic to warm contemporary to spa-luxurious.
Functionality for everyone from grandkids to grandparents – As health care costs continue to skyrocket and multiple generations living under the same roof is a growing reality for many American families, it is more important now than ever before to have a bathroom which will work for all members of the family. A 4” tall shower curb which is a cinch for a teenager to step over can be a mountaintop for their grandmother. Eliminating a curb makes the shower an “equal opportunity” space.
