If you have a cramped bathroom or just aren’t much of a soak-in-the-tub kind of person, chances are a bathroom shower stall would be the perfect solution for you. They take up less room than the bathtub/shower combo and come in a variety of design styles. Here’s some more information to get you started.
The costs of installing a bathroom shower stall depend on a variety of factors: whether your stall is pre-fabricated or custom-built, the materials used, labor for professional installation, as well as the size of the shower stall itself. On average, you can expect to pay $2,000 for a fiberglass shower stall, and $3,000 for a tiled shower stall (not including doors). Get a price quote to find out what it would cost for your own home.
The durability of a bathroom shower stall depends on the materials it’s constructed from. With regular maintenance and normal wear and tear, however, most shower stalls should last for years to come.
Maintenance is rather minimal. Usually all that is required is regular cleaning with a household shower cleaner (or distilled vinegar if the shower walls are tiled with grout in between). This will keep the space looking like new.
Bathroom shower stalls are usually one-person showers made to take up less room than the shower/bath combo. They are often made up for four parts: a base, safety glass door, glass side panels (unless the shower is recessed), and side walls, which are waterproofed with tile, fiberglass, etc. Out of these four components come a variety of different types of shower stalls.
Shower stalls can be pre-fabricated or custom, based on the homeowner’s preference. For minor bathroom remodels on a budget, pre-fabricated models are a great choice and can usually be installed as a DIY project. For homeowners looking for design extras like tile mosaic walls and the like, custom shower stalls are very popular.
