I was able to remove the mini walls on each side of my bathtub. The fully enclosed shower would change to a “seamless” one. The contractors altered the level of my shower floor removing the existing shower subfloor and building a new one. It angled toward the bathroom’s exterior corner so that water would drain away from the shower door opening.
I love my new shower, especially the rain shower head, hand attachment, and “foot warmer” on the shower floor. Aesthetically, I am so happy with the tile in my shower niche and the wallpaper behind my bathtub. Both give the bathroom a unique look. (I’m also thrilled with the hand attachment on my bathtub faucet—it makes hair-washing easier!)
