How Much Does It Cost to Have a Shower Enclosure Installed?

Bathroom renovation in the house

One of the essential parts of installing your shower is finding the proper shower enclosure to fit your shower walls. There are many options on the market, from glass panels to acrylic. The right enclosure for you will depend on your taste and available space. However, you’ll also need to factor in the cost of your bathroom remodel project.

We’ll take a look at the price of installing new shower enclosures in your bathroom and delve into accessible bathroom enclosures and their associated costs.

How Much Does It Cost to Have a Shower Enclosure Installed?

The total cost of installing a new shower enclosure depends on the size of your shower and the number of walls needed. For instance, a 3-wall shower enclosure is more expensive than a 2-wall one.

You can expect to pay between 300 and 800 USD just for the enclosure materials. The installation is an additional cost that can go up to 900 USD. However, this will depend on the average contractor in your zip code and the number of enclosures you need.

You’ll also need to consider the materials you want to use. Frameless glass is always a more expensive choice, but it offers a more elegant look and style for your bathroom. However, if you want to save some money, you can always opt for a white acrylic model.

The square footage is another installation cost you need to consider. A bigger shower will require a bigger enclosure, which will be more expensive.

What Is the Cost of an Accessible Bathroom?

Wheelchair-Accessible Showers

According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), showers need to be 36 x 36 inches to allow you to properly maneuver inside. Therefore, if you want your bathroom to be ADA-accessible, you’ll need to invest in a bigger shower and enclosure.

Because an accessible shower is bigger, it will also be more expensive than a regular option. Installing an ADA-accessible shower enclosure can cost up to 1000 USD, depending on whether it is a 2-wall or 3-wall enclosure.

How to Save on Shower Enclosure Installation Costs

Most people prefer to hire a professional because it helps them save money. However, installing an enclosure can be done by yourself with the right tools.

Here’s what you can do to save money in this shower remodel project:

  • Consider undertaking the project yourself with the help of friends or family members. However, you can only install the enclosure yourself if it has been designed for easy installation and setup.
  • You can invest in a shower enclosure installation kit, which should help you perform this task without needing professional help.
  • A framed enclosure is cheaper than a frameless option because it doesn’t provide the same style. However, it has similar functionality and can help you reduce the overall enclosure replacement cost.
  • You can lower the cost of installation by measuring the dimensions of your shower by yourself. That’s a process the installation crew won’t have to do, helping you reduce expenses and working hours.
  • We also recommend checking out our shower installation videos.

Note: If you don’t feel like you can perform the installation yourself, you should contact a professional.
