Curbless showers, also known as seamless showers, are shower designs that eliminate traditional raised thresholds or curbs. This means that the shower floor is on the same level as the rest of the bathroom floor, creating a smooth transition between the shower area and the rest of the bathroom.
Seamless showers have become increasingly popular in modern homes because of their easy accessibility, beautiful glass panels, and timeless design. Here are 10 reasons to upgrade to a curbless shower by Solace Showers.
1. No Threshold For Easier Access
Perhaps the most significant advantage of seamless showers is their accessibility.
Traditional bathrooms with a raised curb can be difficult or even impossible for some individuals with mobility impairments to access. Stepping over a high threshold can be dangerous for children, elderly individuals, or those with mobility impairments.
Curbless showers have no threshold making them safer and easier to access than traditional showers. For many, this is enough reason to make the switch.

2. Aesthetically Pleasing To The Eye
Curbless showers offer a more streamlined and modern aesthetic. The space feels larger and more open without the visible separation between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. This can be especially appealing in smaller bathrooms where every inch of space is valuable.
Another advantage of having seamless showers with glass panels is their transformation in your bathroom. Nobody wants to shower in a small dark room where shower curtains hardly let any light in. Curbless showers significantly improve the appearance of your bathroom by letting light shine through the glass panels.
3. For Everyone From Kids To Grandparents
Due to curbless showers' unique and thoughtful design, they don't have any age limitations. From children to grandparents, these types of showers are easily accessible and require zero assistance.
The safe design of seamless showers makes walking straight into the shower easy without tripping or stubbing your toe on the raised curb that traditional bathrooms have. This leads to fewer slips and falls in the bathroom.
4. Maximize Your Space With Fewer Joints
Seamless showers make your shower look spacious and well-lit. The glass doors in the shower allow light in, making your shower look brighter and cleaner.
If you're undergoing shower renovations in a home that has limited space, curbless bathrooms may be the solution. They have fewer joints, which will maximize your space, allowing you to shower in a more open area.
5. More Glass Options
We'll design your curbless shower exactly how you want it at Solace Showers. There are multiple glass options to choose from that will make your bathroom as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Do you want a door or prefer a glass panel with no door?
The design elements of your seamless showers depend on the theme you have for your bathroom and how open you want the shower to be. The multiple glass choices help you choose a unique design for your home and are convenient for anyone using the shower.
6. Modern Look
Homeowners want a bathroom that's functional, beautiful, and modern. Seamless showers offer just this.
This is a popular pick in shower renovations because of its contemporary appeal. They increase the value of the home, which will come in handy if you ever decide to sell your home.
In the meantime, you'll enjoy a beautiful space that feels like home and is safe to access for young adults and elderly individuals alike.
7. ADA Compliant
Curbless showers are ADA-compliant. That makes them the ideal choice for people with disabilities or for the elderly. These showers are wheelchair accessible, making them a dream come true for anyone with a mobility device.
Whether you're surprising your elderly parents with a shower renovation or could benefit from the ADA-compliance of seamless showers yourself, Solace is here for you. We'll turn your vision into a reality giving your home a shower that's as functional as it is safe.
8. Wheelchair Accessible
Wheelchair accessibility is a requirement in any public building. This means absolutely anyone can easily enter the building. Even private organizations are making their spaces wheelchair accessible to avoid limiting anyone with a mobility device.
Regarding bathrooms, wheelchair accessibility is important because everyone must use a bathroom. Start by installing curbless showers in your home to accommodate loved ones who use wheelchairs for mobility.
9. Great For Kids or Elderly People With Disabilities
Kids need guidance when taking showers because their minds are not developed enough to do it alone. However, with time they will learn how to shower without help.
Taking a shower alone is even more difficult for kids with disabilities, especially when the shower is not designed in a considerate manner. The same applies to elderly people with MS or Parkinson's.
Using curbless showers in a home where someone has a disability will make life more manageable for them and those around.
10. Looks Great With Linear Drains
Linear drains in bathrooms look beautiful and make cleaning your shower easy. A linear drain with a removable debris basket will keep your pipes from clogging. These drains will help keep your curbless shower clean and dry.
Further, this prevents dampness in the bathroom and keeps off mold and bacteria. Now that grime will not accumulate in corners, the bathroom's risk of mold and bacteria is minimized. Curbless showers are cleaner, safer, and easier to maintain.
