If you are looking to install a small shower stall, one of the easiest ways to do so is to purchase a shower base and a shower enclosure. You could spend a considerable amount of time and money installing a fully tiled shower floor, but why waste that time and money when simple, affordable and visually attractive options are actually available to you?
Shower bases (also known as shower pans and shower floors) have come a long way over the years. I understand that many people may be turned off of the idea of using them after seeing some of the horrific options that were available when these first came onto the market. I have seen my fair share of ugly, cracked, and stained shower bases over the years. It is for that reason that I truly understand if you are wary about this option. However, you are here now, so let’s take a moment to learn about the newer, much more impressive shower bases on today’s market.
Unlike the cheap plastic shower bases of the past, today’s shower bases have been built with care. That is, at least the ones I have selected for this list. These ones have been built to be strong and crack resistant. They will not stain, so long as you clean them regularly (like most other things in the world.) Many are even insulated. To top it all off, they look and feel much nicer than they once did. They do not feature hard, sandpaper-like grit which tears at your feet and collects dirt (a definite upgrade in my books.)
