If you are considering replacing your shower stall just because of its old style or you don’t find it appropriate for any other reason, and want to enhance the looks of your bathroom, you’ll find fiberglass stalls to be more than just appropriate. You’ll find it worthwhile to spend some time and study the options of installing bathroom shower stalls and shower enclosures.
Bathroom shower stalls are available as free standing units and shower enclosures are offered along with doors and tracking. Fiberglass shower stalls enable you to make better use of the available space, offering another source for bathing because they are free standing fixtures. These stalls are offered with additional accessories needed for their installation.
Fiberglass shower stall units are available in many styles, allowing you to make an appropriate choice. These are lightweight and are not permanent fixtures, meaning that you can conveniently keep them in the basement while undertaking repairs or modifications of your bathroom. New shower stalls come with shelves and seats and are provided with permanent solid grab bars for the purpose of safety.
Bathroom shower stalls are also made from acrylic but then these are slightly heavier than the fiberglass variety. Their installation is simple as they come with all the components required for installation and one just needs to buy drains and pipes. Generally, retailers can offer useful hints, enabling you to select an appropriate unit that would fulfill your requirements.
Some of the factors affecting the price of bathroom shower stall are its design, material used for its construction and its size. Usually, these are not very costly, except for the custom made stalls that can be very expensive. Fiberglass shower stalls are not as expensive as the acrylic shower stalls. If you are looking for something simple, you would better go for fiberglass shower stalls. Other than fiberglass shower stalls, you may also consider having a look at corner, neo angle and plain kits that are easily available in the present market.
Before you really start looking for a fiberglass shower stall in the market, you need to decide the style that you may like to have and dedicate some budget for the same. If you are a DIY kind of enthusiast, you would love to carry the installation of fiberglass stall, else it would be better to get a quote for installation charges from a couple of contractors for making a comparative study before entrusting one with the installation of your new shower.
I have to say that you’ll need some time to figure this out. For every big decision, we need to have enough information and some time to think about the options. But, don’t forget that you need some time to actually “know” what you want to have. Don’t spend entire day thinking about it, leave few days for things to settle down. As would people say, sleep on it. You never know when you’ll see something that will completely change your mind or the way you look at things.
I remember how I was focused on one shower stall and wanted to have it in my bathroom no matter what. I only had one thing to wait, to save the money for it. And, while I was “doing that”, I saw even better option, by accident. I was browsing a forum and talking about bathroom remodeling with some people when one of them recommended my a website I should visit. When I did – I saw the best thing ever, never thinking something like that even exists! And of course, it was cheaper then my first option so I immediately went after that new option.
I hope you’ll have the patience to get what you really need.
