If you are thinking about replacing a shower in your home or adding an additional shower unit, fiberglass shower enclosures are an option you should consider. These units are available in a wide variety of styles, sizes, colors and price points so you can find an enclosure that meets your needs. Additionally, fiberglass showers are very easy to maintain.
Shower enclosures are available in two main configurations – seamless one-piece units and multi-piece units that can be configured to fit as needed. One-piece units have the advantage of being very easy to install, but you may find that existing doorways will not accommodate these units. In this case, you should opt for the multi-piece units. If you are replacing an existing shower unit, it may be easier to use a multi-piece unit that you can fit into the existing space, especially if you can not find a new one-piece unit with the exact measurements you need.
One-piece shower stalls are available with many options. Some have seats built into them which is a convenient option for anyone with mobility issues. Many of these units also offer shelves, towel bars, grip bars, and soap holders that are part of the unit. Larger showers can be purchased that have dual shower heads so that more than one person can shower at the same time. Corner shower stalls are also available that will allow you to make the most of a small space.
If you do not need to replace the shower floor, or if you can not find a one-piece shower stall that exactly fits your space, you can also purchase fiberglass shower wall panels. These panels can be cut to fit the existing floor and wall space with a sharp razor blade and let you to fit the walls to almost any configuration. While shower wall panels take a little more work than a one-piece unit, they are also more versatile and are often the best option for pre-existing construction.
Fiberglass enclosures are a relatively easy installation for experienced do-it-yourselfers. With the enormous variety of options available, you should be able to find a solution that improves the appearance of your bathroom and has all of the options that you need.
