Taking a shower "without” soaking the entire bathroom floor proceeds down to the ever‐important curb. Understanding how to build a shower curb in_conjunction with what products to utilize could get complicated. But getting the curb right makes all the difference for a shower — with might save you thousands of dollars down the road.

A shower ”curb” should be no higher than any stair riser in your house. It should be low sufficient to step over also look seamless but high sufficient to retain water out. Many states need that the shower curb is at least two inches taller than the drain but these measurements could be changed if building a shower for a disabled person.

Here are some points to retain in mind when designing a "curb“ for your new shower. Although it's difficult to see in pictures curbs need to be tilted toward the shower so they drain properly. Solid stone is a marvelous touch for a tub deck shower bench as well as of route a shower curb. Zero or limited grout joints help retain this very wet area easy to clean. Always consider your curb a potential tripping hazard.

A curb set with the same tile as the shower in‐conjunction with bathroom floor could be hard to see for someone with a visual impairment. Choose a contrasting tile color to shun this danger. Safety is always a concern in a bathroom. A natural stone “shower” curb should be polished (corner eased) on both edges to avoid injury.

The bigger the profile the safer the edge. Older householders also those with small kids should specify a quarter round nosing profile to ease the natural stone curb for maximum safety. A shower “curb″ should be ”seamlessly" incorporated into tile placement plus grout joints. This is a fine example of a tile setter taking great care in installation with layout. Simple clean shower lines are very popular today. Often this look requires the most work.

Some attractive shower curbs look like one big stone slab. In fact each side is a separate piece all mitered also epoxied together to look like ″one“ solid stone. Using tile or having exposed grout joints is easier but often doesn‘t have the polished look that this bathroom showcases. A profile on the edges of a curb like this "Schluter“ Systems trim makes for a nice transition especially when using two dissimilar tile choices for the curb. A outline could also make the curb safer with an eased edge.
