Create Custom Enclosures with DreamLine Shower Kits

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Create custom shower enclosures using DreamLine shower kits. Choose affordable acrylic models like the Sector design (model DL-6178-00) that includes a 36 inch shower tray and backwall for just $522.27.

1. DreamLine offers some unique and affordable shower kits that can be customized to suit your needs. One of the cheapest models is the Sector series of custom shower enclosures made from acrylic/ABS. The bottom tray, which is fiberglass reinforced, measures 36 inches, and the walls are 72 7/8 inches high. This unit fits into a corner but allows for trimming along the walls to fit specific spaces. Finish by adding a set of glass doors or leave the shower open.

This is just one of the cheap DreamLine shower kits that can be installed quickly and be customized to your specific needs. View other wall kits and shower trays in a variety of sizes and shapes – prices range from $600 to just over $1,000.

2. One of the more elegant choices in the DreamLine shower kits collections is the Infinity design, model DL-6091C-01FR, that includes the basic pieces required for a contemporary walk in shower – a 30 by 60 inch shower base (skid-proof tray) and a single sliding glass door (frosted for privacy) that comes with chrome finished trim, all for $657.09. The ¼ inch tempered glass doors measure between 56 – 60 inches and are 72 inches high. These are versatile because they can be reversed to offer a right or a left opening.

Using the base and glass doors, create several styles of custom shower enclosures by choosing sleek modern tile (such as the black ones pictured) or a natural backwalll using stone or accented with cedar or teak.

The beauty of buying a shower kit is that you have the basic elements required while still retaining the flexibility of design – add a modern console with massage jets; go with a minimalist style, or add vibrant colored tile or natural stone.

3. Dreamline has a variety of sizes and shapes in similar shower kits that are affordable and versatile for transforming into almost any decor idea you may have.

Consider a third option in the DreamLine custom shower enclosure collections called the Charisma, model DL-6936C-01CL, which offers shower doors and a base measuring 36 by 60 inches and doors that are 72 inches in height. The Charisma unit is not a corner shower. It costs $887.67 and can be ordered online.

Take a look at the image of how the Charisma kit looks without any tile or decoration interfering. The sketch outlines how simple and practical the pieces are, and how much customization you can add with tile, stone, wood or just the existing walls sealed with a water-resistant paint.

Lok at this sleek design of the DreamLine Neo Shower Enclosure that’s depicted with a contemporary shower console unit including massage jets and an overhead rainfall showerhead.
