Pros and Cons - Window In The Shower

October 11, 2017

 We often want to get the most out of the space we have. This bathroom renovation in trend in Perth has become more and more popular. The obvious reasons people don't do this renovation is cost and the fear of water on the window. Now yes there is a cost increase in something like this but the window aspect of it is not really a factor. Depending on the window you have it will generally be waterproof. It's just important to ask whoever is doing your bathroom renovation whether or not they think this will have issues down the track

The three main reasons why you would do this are.

  • To create space in a room that has not enough space.

  • The ability to build a walk-in shower for someone who is either wanting ease of access or an appearance of a larger bathroom

  • Wanting a large double shower

  • Allowing for a niche shower box to build on a external wall 

  • Entry door is often away from bathroom windows so it allows for adequate fall in shower to door

  • Often most people use fixed panel shower screens which are cheaper to purchase than full screns

These are the most commons reasons but below I will give you examples of bathroom renovations we have done in Dianella, Thornlie, Perth and Armadale 








Check and and double check about the waterproof nature of your window. A lot of them have been treated to sustain rain water and other weather conditions so generally you should be fine. For a wood window take into consideration if it needs to be treated. Waterproofing is key with these items as well as waterproofing around windows can be tricky so its important to use  a solid primer first to make sure you allow for movement.
