The curbless shower, sometimes called a Roman shower, was invented thousands of years ago and today it’s one of the most important of all Universal Design (UD) features for accessible and life span living.

With the advent of dozens of new linear drain systems and pre-fab sloping floor systems the walk and roll-in easy access shower is also a highly desired amenity in standard non-UD home designs. It’s practical, quick, easy to use and is clearly a great choice for anyone who has a fast-paced lifestyle and wishes to “age in place.”

The deep, walk-in soaking baths with jets are also popular and sometimes nothing beats a deep-soaking bath with a whirlpool, but we’ll save that topic for another day.

Nonetheless, as far as easy access bathing and hygiene goes, the curbless Roman shower is still the best choice.
