How do I transform my bathroom?

I have my 15 kg washing machine in the bathroom and there is a small space left for a shower to be fitted. Any ideas for this venture. Just need a single shower door.

    Hi, Sharon,

    The issue is not just about the door size, but about how much space you'd have inside the shower to bend forward, turn around, and raise your arms. Unless you want to repeatedly knock your knees, elbows, and perhaps your head into the walls, i'd give serious consideration to what size space would best work. This could be vitally important should you become physically incapacitated for any reason (and don't mistakenly presume it could never happen...).

    Very true will do measurements first

    In the States, we have mandatory shower minimums, that will help you in your design phase:


    30”x30” shower drain pan with curb

    6’ high, water-impervious wall finishes

    5’-7” high shower curtain or tempered glass door

    shower head at 5’ high (too short & I spec 6’)

    anti/scald feature on the faucet set

    the room must have a bathroom exhaust fan of 70 CFM or higher
