What An Enclosed Shower Does For You

In Los Angeles, enclosed showers are taking off as the supreme 2017 trend for your wake-me-later relaxation needs. In the bathroom trend of easy access with graceful simplicity, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Let’s get the basics.

What is an Enclosed Shower

Unlike the usual shower and tub duo, an enclosed shower is a space with glass walls, tile floored, and a hinged glass door to enter.

It couldn’t be simpler. Couldn’t be easier to use.

Enclosed Showers Give You Access

Face it. Tubs just don’t make sense. They’re weird to climb in, weirder to climb out of, and if you grab your curtains on the fall down - you’re replacing those.

With enclosed showers you just open a door. It’s that simple. Your shower integrates directly into your home seamlessly because the base is closely leveled to the floor.

That means if you or a loved one has a handicap, Novel Remodeling can easily customize your enclosed shower to make it completely accessible, like installing a shower chair for ease of use.

This general simplicity and commitment to access carries other virtues of an enclosed shower, like -

Maintaining Your Enclosed Shower

You would think that something so contemporarily designed would have a lot of finicky aspects; a nightmare to clean or repair. That’s not the case. See, the pieces of an enclosed shower are incredibly simple. Easy to maintain.You have -

The Stall

The Door

And your tiled floor.

There’s no tub to deal with. These simple pieces that combine an enclosed shower could not be easier to replace if something does break. It’s as simple as exchanging one part for another. General contractors like Novel Remodeling can easily handle the nature of shower enclosure repairs.

Cleaning an enclosed shower is as simple as taking a cloth to the glass with your favorite brand of cleaner.

Customize and Get Creative with Enclosed Shower

Something that people don’t know about enclosed showers is that they can be completely customized to your bathroom. This flexibility allows homeowners to add additional luxuries that can really change the experience.

If you don’t like the feeling of tiling beneath your feet, just change it to a wooden flooring. Paired with luxury shower heads, you are given the ability to visit the spa in your own home. Enclosed showers don’t waste all that warm mist like a conventional shower does. Instead of all that water soaking into your ceiling, causing gradual damage, that mist is used for your comfort.

Many homeowners install their enclosed showers with customized sound systems. Some have even gone as far as having an open flame and it’s no mystery why.

In a way, your enclosed shower is really just a specially designed room in your home for complete comfort. Because enclosed showers are not generally mass produced, they’re designed just for you.

Novel Remodeling’s expertise in bathroom makeovers gives them a soft spot for enclosed showers. We believe that no matter the project, what people really need is to make their home feel like home. We can help you start your enclosed shower project today. See what a difference it makes.

For those who haven’t seen it before, pervious concrete seems like smoke and mirrors in the way it takes water, makes it disappear.

Pavers - All a variety of colors, looks, and all engineered to allow for swift passage of water in between each one.

⅜” Aggregate - In between the pavers and comprising a complete layer below ⅜” aggregate creates a 40% permeable layer that filters water into lower levels. Fine c…
