Zero entry showers are becoming a very attractive option for several reasons. Of course the need for handicap accessible showers will always be there, but more homeowners are planning for aging in place and eliminating the need for a curb is a huge advantage as we get older. The European look and feel to a curbless entry shower is very appealing to the eye. New systems such as the VIM Shower System allow us to install curbless showers without the need to cut into floor joists.
