When it comes to revamping your bathroom, it’s important to take the size of the shower area you want into consideration. Otherwise, it can make your bathroom feel cramped and look unattractive, which is something you will not want. According to bathroom remodeling contractors, in order to find the right shower size for your bathroom, you’ll have to identify how you want to use the shower.
In this post, South Shore Dream Bath discusses the different ways you can get the appropriate size for your shower.
If you don’t have any plans of soaking in your tub often, it might be best to consider a simple walk-in shower during your bathroom remodeling plans. To properly determine the size of the shower unit for your bathroom, you’ll first have to measure the space where the shower will be installed. First, measure the height from the base to the top of the wall unit.
For the depth, meanwhile, you can measure from the back wall to the front of the enclosure along the side walls. Keep in mind that the minimum height for most bathrooms is 80 inches. If you’re uncertain of doing this on your own, make sure to ask a professional for help to avoid getting the wrong dimensions.
Shower and Bathtub Combo
On the other hand, if you’re planning to install a bathtub and shower combination unit, you’ll need a little more space compared to a single shower unit. This is because bathtub and shower combos tend to come with shower walls attached to the unit itself. Since the standard bathtub and shower combo dimensions are 60 inches by 30 inches by 72 inches or 60 inches by 36 inches by 72 inches, make sure to properly size your shower area around these sizes.
