A shower curb, also known as a shower threshold, is that little wall at the bottom of a shower that keeps water from running everywhere. They can be of different heights and made from different materials, but the basic job description is the same.
So why care about a shower curb? It’s a necessary part of shower construction, but it can also put a finishing detail on your shower, and help connect it with the design of the rest of your bathroom.
You can use a shower curb to divide or coordinate separate shower and bath spaces, or to meet with a door or wall securely. Shower curbs are frequently, but not always, made of the same material as the inside of your shower. They’re often seen in tile, vinyl, or stone. Below we’ll take a look at this small but important bathroom detail and how you can put it to work in your shower.
