Bathroom area is 7x8'. Planning to put in 3x4' tiled shower area in one
corner. Will most likely use a Sloan AC-11 showerhead and/or handheld
What is the lowest wall I could have? 48"? 54"? 60"? I want to keep
bath area as open as possible. A shorter wall would help that perception.
When my glass shower door broke, I thought I'd use a curtain for
awhile. I never replaced the door.
I put the screws (that had held the door on) back in the holes to keep
water from leaking into the wall.
You have a good point, but I life in a soft water area and using the
shower spray stuff, should take care of anything I would likely get, at
least it should IF the lady of the house can get the idea that you spray it
on and leave it on after a shower and not use it like a cleaner. :-)
We will see in the coming weeks.

This has crossed my mind. I'm working with existing construction. I saw
a bath in Denmark that was about 6x10 with tiled floors/walls and a
single floor drain with the shower off to one side. Nice arrangement.
Maybe this is the way to go, if I can only figure out how to get the
Which wall(s)? How tall are the people using it? Do you use the head
pretty close to straight down or angled considerably?
The wall opposite the source could easily be 54", I'd think, with no spray
directly from the shower head getting over it. If the people are tall there
might be some bounce from them. I think that would be too low for the wall
perpendicular to the source wall.
FWIW, my shower is 4'x5', Sloan head, the two partition walls are 68" as am
I. There wouldn't be a problem if they were 60".
Proposed shower stall is 3x4'. Imagine points A, B, C, D. Line AB is 4'
and a full floor to ceiling wall. Line BC is 3' and also floor to
ceiling. Partitions would be of lines CD and DA. Showerhead to be
mounted on BC. I would probably mount it at 74-78" above the floor.
Using a Sloan AC-11 for the most part shooting out at a slight angle
depending on user. On a good day, I'm 66".
Forget tile. Get cultured granite or cultured marble walls. This is what
I put into a small bathroom. It's so nice to not deal with cleaning tile.
I put in a corner (diagonal) shower area to save space.
I have both a regular shower head and a handheld shower plumbed in.
Why would you want low walls that would get all wet? I also hate really
low shower heads.
