This is an interesting post on the Innovate Building Solutions website about the myths of hobless, step-free showers. While this is an American company, it could be instructional for those who think it can’t or shouldn’t be done.
“When most people think about a one level (curbless) shower the words which come to mind are – Grandma, wheelchair, roll in, walker and handicapped. While a curbless shower certainly can be a need for grandma in a wheelchair or a person with mobility challenges to safely enjoy their shower, it’s about much more than that. From my experience a one level shower can be cool, contemporary, stylish all while providing a functional design which will work for life. Let’s take a look at 7 myths about one level showers and bust them wide open.”
Editor’s note: A recent visit to new display homes has revealed that hobs are being put back in showers. On asking why I was told that mothers of teenagers are fed up dealing with flooded floors. Time to go back to the drawing board and get the design right.
