Sometimes, our showers are simply too small for comfort. In fact, back in the day, showers were built to be on the smaller side. However, that doesn’t mean homeowners have to stick to these cramped spaces within their homes. The reality is, to enlarge a shower is tricky but possible. When doing a bathroom remodel, expanding the shower can be a great way to begin your renovations. You can take on this project for aesthetic reasons or practical reasons alike. Still, there are certain things you should consider when looking to enlarge a shower. Here are just some of the key considerations to keep in mind as you enlarge a shower.
Limited Space Could Mean Limited Options
You have a slightly limited extent of options when it comes to expanding your shower in an already small space. In fact, without spending an exorbitant amount of money, the best thing you can do is understand the specific options afforded to you with your current shower and bathroom situation. Ultimately, the layout of your bathroom will provide a general outlook on your shower options.
As a result, it can be crucial to consult with a professional to truly understand what your shower expansion options are with the current layout of your bathroom. Therefore, it ultimately becomes increasingly important to be realistic when expanding your shower. Instead of spending your money on plumbing repairs, look at what cost-effective options are available to you and see if you can work with the budget you have to enlarge a shower in a smart, effective, and efficient way. If you can’t add a tub, you can at least expand your shower space.
The Shower Pan Is Key
When it comes to re-doing a shower, you have to pay very special and close attention to where to place the shower pan. In fact, when enlarging your shower, you will most likely have to shift and move the shower pan accordingly. That means you’ll have to take into consideration where you’d like the shower pan to be when it’s all said and done. But, when you buy a pre-existing shower pan, you could be left with a size and style that doesn’t work for you or limit your shower options even more. Keeping all these things in mind can help make the process a lot easier when enlarging your shower.
