Frameless Shower Screens for Mobile Homes

frameless showers 2

Welcome to the bathroom revolution, there is a new best way to box your shower and water sources in. They are elegant, hygienic, economical, and easy to clean. The trick to making your bathroom last as long as possible is building it up with really good materials. Glass is such a great, versatile, cheap and beautiful material. It is really underused, especially in bathrooms. Frameless shower screens give the impression of spaciousness and boundlessness, which is really important in small spaces like mobile homes. Where shower curtains cut the space off, and tend to mould and drip, Frameless Impression open the space up, and dry instantly.

Frameless Impressions are superior to screens that have a brass finish or frame, because mould grows in the rubber grips and is very hard to get out without encouraging more mould to grow in it’s place, meaning that they will eventually need to be replaced. Frameless screens are the most sustainable in this sense. Glass can be cut to any size, and provided that you have adequate drainage, should last for years to come. Sustainability is a major concern now, especially within mobile homes, and it should be a priority in planning the running of your manufactured home.

The same sorts of screens can be used as pool fencing, as splash backs, as balustrades, acrylic pool walls and windows, and kitchen walls.

    Whoaa! This is in a mobile home? I’ve always been concerned that frameless screens are somewhat of a risk if you have children or pets around. (They always seemed less stable to me.) But if you can install one in a mobile home, I guess that’s not a concern. Thanks for this post. The screen does indeed give the room a much more spacious look.

    We live in Illinois. And we have a single wide the year is a 1996. We own our own land. We have looked getting a loan but just cant find anyone that will loan or refinance our home. Would love to get a new a/c and furnace but its a big no no when you live in a mobile home even if you own your own land. If you have any thoughts on this PLEASE let us no.

    Hi Shirlee!

    We had really bad water in a house once. It was orange without the filtration system. The mines in southern WV has pretty much ruined all our water so it's very common here. They are finally bringing 'city water' into in to the hollows and very rural areas which helps a lot of people live better. It was so inconvenient and impossible to keep the shower clean. I call the pieces that wrap around the walls above the tubs surrounds, too.

    We have a vessel sink on our counter. It's a blue glass and it's kinda hard to keep clean. Toothpaste is the worst..lol. I do love the higher position though. I want to try that teflon stuff on it and see if the toothpaste stops sticking to it. Other than that I love it.

    To answer your question about the bathroom additions: Pretty easy actually. You know exactly where the trunk line is so it's easy to tie into them for the sewage (design it so the new line is running down hill to the tie in) and the water lines are usually running right under the home on one side so it's easy to attach to them, too. If you want to build an addition to house the bathroom, all you'd have to do is build a room and butt it up against the home then seal it. Codes and regulations are just ridiculous sometimes so that will always pose an issue but that's on all homes. Most require that the structure be completely separate from the home but be sealed properly at the connection/door. The roof line is the trickiest part but the goal is to keep the water flowing away from the home so a pitch is usually easiest. I know nothing about electricity so I can't offer an opinion on that. I've seen some people get really creative with adding bathrooms in and to their mobile home. One guy had a step up for his toilet. He said they couldn't get enough angle on the trunk line and that was the easiest fix at the time. It actually looked pretty cool, like a king's throne..lol..hope that helps a bit. Take care! Thanks for commenting, I appreciate you!

    Although nice to look at, I could never have a glass surround shower. We have hard water here and keeping a glass shower clean and free of hard water deposits would drive me crazy. I have to routinely add vinegar to both the dishwasher and washing machine to cut down on the build up.

    If I ever have to do another bathroom remodel, I will go with a seamless surround (sorry can't remember what they are called) because tile is hard to keep clean too.

    I do like the vessel sinks in the second photo. When they first came out, I wasn't sure how I liked them but now I'd like to have one and use an old dresser or cabinet for the base. Love that look.

    On a side note, I've been wanting to ask you if it's hard to add another bathroom to a manufactured home. So many of the ones we've looked at only have one bathroom and we definitely need two. It wouldn't have to be a full bath, just a toilet and sink.

        Thanks for all the info Crystal. I knew you'd be the one to ask. Our realtor contract expired on the house and we decided not to re-list. But we still plan to move at some point. When we finally sell the house, we have two parks in mind in the city where you lease the land. I hope we can find one with two bathrooms but at least now I know one can be added.
