Bathroom renovation

Am seeking a raised floor fully serviced D shaped shower unit that is a maximum of 205cm high in total, which would be ideal given complications of room layout and plumbing, but having no luck with my online searches here in CH or DE - lots of lovely other duschkabines, but not this "freestanding" style. Anyone seen anything like this for sale anywhere please?

This is the D-shaped style: https://www.aqva.co.uk/Bathrooms/69283

And this is what I mean by fully serviced: https://www.insta.ch/de/catalog/prod...oaAkWAEALw_wcB - basically hook it up to plumbing once properly installed, and voila!

I doubt it. That shape used to be popular about twenty years ago. Most of them are corner or square/rectangular.

You may have more luck looking for a shower with a steam function as these often come as a complete unit. Steam showers are great but you'll also need a suitable electricity supply.

I found one in the U.S. but it's totally unsuitable as it's 110V!

Re: Bathroom renovation

Have you tried going to some specialty shops to see if they have them or can order them? It looks like most of the ones sold online that are curved have a 90-degree angle at the back rather than being D-shaped.

Not sure what part of CH you're in, but there is a Bauarena place in Volketswil that has a large section for bath fixtures like duschkabines, etc. so maybe someone there could be of help. That entire place is basically for people building homes or re-modelling to come and pick out what they want and get assistance with the planning, etc., and it offers lots of specialty stuff.

Re: Bathroom renovation

reuter.com is probably your best bet, great range and price, I have used them several times over a number of years with no problems. Just confirm delivery times before ordering.

Reuters don't have what the OP wanted.
