If you’ve been yearning to trade in your tired old tub for a swanky new shower but dread the prospect of tearing down walls, you’re in luck. There are loads of great options for transforming your alcove bath into a sleek, sophisticated shower space you’ll love to use every day. And it doesn’t need to cost a fortune. Make an appointment with one of R.J. Tilley’s project designers to get your project started. Here are three options to consider by KOHLER
1. Install a shower base.
A smart alternative to tile flooring, shower bases are easy to install and a breeze to keep clean. They’re available in acrylic material or enameled cast iron and come in a wide range of styles and colors. Some bases come with integral seats for the ultimate in convenience.
2. Add a shower door.
Fabric or plastic shower curtains attract mold and mildew and are hard to keep
clean. Consider installing easy-to-clean frameless sliding shower doors to instantly add
elegance to your bathroom.
Shower doors fitted with clear glass make your bath seem more spacious, providing
a particularly nice aesthetic upgrade for petite baths. Levity® bath and shower doors feature glass bypass panels and minimal framing for an open, contemporary look.
3. Turbocharge your water experience.
Here’s the fun part: Exploring the many options available for spray experiences (like multifunction showerheads, rainheads and bodysprays) you can use to personalize your shower. Choose from a selection of spray types, or make it simple and go for a pre-configured shower package.
The HydroRail® shower column lets you combine the showerhead of your choice with a convenient handshower. Or, add a transfer valve, and you can choose up to three different water delivery options. And if you want to control your water temperature and shower experience from outside the shower with presets for multiple users, a digital shower valve makes it easy.
Bonus Suggestion: Glass enclosures
Bulky framework and unsightly seams are out and frameless glass enclosures are in! According to data from the National Kitchen & Bath Association, almost 80% of homeowners choose all-glass enclosures for their shower and 54% choose frameless glass. Glass comes in a variety of textures and the little hardware required for install is available in attractive finishes like brushed nickel and bronze. Interesting fact: A good 30% of glass shower enclosures are installed flush with the floor—pointing back to the trend for no-threshold entry.
