Shower Pan Refinishing and Repairing

3 Critical Questions to Choose the Right Type of Shower Base

Critical question #1 to choose the right shower pan – How important is the initial purchase price?

I get it when people say their budget is tight. Since I’m funding 2 kids in college starting this Fall I can feel your pain. With that being said, if you plan to stay in this home for a while going cheap with the shower base can be a big mistake and bring back the famous slogal of the Fram oil filter commercial from the 1980’s “you can pay me now or you can pay me later.”

How much you spend should be determined by your goals for the property, who will be using it and what looks best for you. If you want a nicer base where you can even get a few color choices an acrylic shower pan is a smart option .

Critical question #2 to choose the right shower base – Is style important?
If you’ve committed to remodeling your bathroom you are already determined to improve the looks of the space – otherwise you wouldn’t consider investing your hard-earned money in this project. If you want a stylish shower – with some color and shape – you won’t find it in a mass produced (and low-cost) fiberglass pan. To inject style – you’re going to pay more (but it doesn’t have to be a lot more). Here’s 3 cool ideas to get a stylish shower base without going crazy-over-the-top with your budget:

Idea 1 – choose a shaped acrylic shower base – There are fun bases like the curved acrylic pan below which not only give you a cost-effective way to get a sleek, contemporary curved glass shower, but also add elbow room in the process.

Idea 2 – select a solid surface shower pan – With 51 different colors in these shower floor pans you can say goodbye to boring white and beige units. Who wants to live in a boring world anyway?

Idea 3 – a custom made tile shower base – While tile pans are a pain to clean – they offer unlimited design possibilities. Choose large format tiles for a contemporary look. Use a fun colored mosaic. Go with pebble stone for a Zen-inspired feel.

Critical question #3 to choose the right shower base – Do you need a custom size?
In remodeling you’ve got to work with the “cards” (or shower shape or size in this case) you’ve been dealt. You may go to your local big box store and see theshower pans and think – cool, we can afford this project. Then you go home and figure out you don’t have a standard 60 x 32, 48 x 36 or 36 x 36 shower pan. Now what?

If you want a custom pan throw out standard fiberglass and acrylic pans as an option. Your choices come down to cultured marble, solid surface pans, one level wet room systems and custom tile pans. It’s nice to know you can still get an easy to install pan – even if you want to DIY and you need a custom size. What you’ll need before ordering a premade pan (like the cultured marble or solid surface option) is your stud to stud measurements. If you have a funky shape (perhaps a weird angled wall in the back or you need an offset shower pan because you have a stud wall in the front) – don’t fret – these style bases can made to size for you.

With a custom size, you can also opt for a site built tile shower or get a premade ready for tile shower pan. The premade ready for tile pans simplify the installation, are factory made and guaranteed not to leak (that’s huge). Check out the shots of one tile ready shower floor pan during (and after) the installation below.
