Fiberglass Shower Stall

A comprehensive resource to assist you in buying and installing shower pans.

A fiberglass shower stall is a great start to building your walk in shower the way that you want.  They are water tight, and extremely sturdy, so you can count on your stall lasting for years without a problem.  Plus you’ll find that fiberglass shower stalls can also be customized to your individual needs, so that you can literally customize your shower the way that you want.  All you have to do is design the ideal shower for your home from the ground up, so that you have the perfect addition anyone would love.

One of the first things to think about with your fiberglass shower stall, is simply how large you would like the shower surrounds to be.  In most cases, a walk in shower should be large enough for you to shower comfortably, but you don’t want them to be too large, or else they can dominate your bathroom.  Plus, a larger shower surround is also going to be harder to clean, which can just be a huge hassle in itself.  That means you want to find a fiberglass shower stall that’s ideal for the size of your bathroom, or home, so that you can ensure that you have plenty of room to be comfortable.  But also, so that the shower works with the room perfectly.

Remember that you’ll need a shower pan to support this all.  The shower pan, also known as the base, is the first thing you should look at when configuring your stall.  Go with a reliable one that can ensure that your water drains properly, and one that doesn’t need to be replaced due to wear and tear within the near future.

You will also want to consider the type of additions that you might need to install within your fiberglass shower stall.  For example, there are certain improvements you can make, from adding a wall mounted seat, to also adding stabilization bars, which are ideal for a handicapped person.  Otherwise you can ensure that your fiberglass shower base has plenty of alcoves for storing soap, body wash, and hair products of all different kinds.  It’s hard to shower without soap of some kind, so having it near you at all times is essential.

You will also want to think about whether or not you want to have your fiberglass shower stall custom built, or if you would like to build a pre-manufactured structure.  This is an important decision, as a ready made stall is going to be much less expensive.  But a custom built fiberglass shower stall will allow you to design your shower from the ground up any way that you want.  This way you can pick the perfect size, as well as shape, so that you enjoy your shower as much as possible.  Just remember, a custom stall is going to be much more expensive than a standard type.

You can typically purchase a fiberglass shower stall from a home furnishings retailer, whether it be Home Depot, Lowe’s or Sears depending upon your area.  Each store should be able to provide you with great ready manufactured stalls that are perfect for your bathroom.  But they will also be able to help you with, or point you in the direction of custom made fiberglass shower stalls that are ideal for your home, so long as you can afford them.  This way you remodel your bathroom the way you want the most.
