Curbless showers are becoming more popular due to the increasing number of individuals over the age of 65 and families with two generations of adults living together under one roof. As homes will need to accommodate the daily routines and activities of different age groups, bathrooms are no exception. If you are planning to renovate your bathroom or your parent's bathroom, then consider installing a curbless shower. It is a simple and modern option that complies with ADA guidelines.
