How to do corner shower walls, curtains, and glass partition


We're putting in a 32" x 40" shower base as pictured, and we'd like to have a glass partition on the side facing the vanity and a shower curtain on a track from the ceiling on the side facing the toilet. We'd like to use products from a home center and not spend too much money. Any ideas on the simplest options for the walls and partition would be most welcome.

The first photo is from a design program. The second one is what the room ACTUALLY looks like. The white cardboard is a template of the shower base dimensions. We don't mind moving the shower plumbing. The toilet's too close to the wall, but we're not going to move it.

You may be better off with a neo-angle shower in that tight a space.

I doubt if you will find a tempered glass wall as an 'off the shelf' unit---

Are you going to build your own shower base or buy a stock unit?

Thanks for your reply. So I take it you can't get varying sizes of glass partitions? I was hoping to find some sort of basic (vinyl?) wall panel to stick to the walls, and then attach a piece of 32" wide glass to the wall for the shower end.

For the base, I was thinking about this base, but that's the subject of another thread, because a joist is in the way, and I have no idea if it's okay to notch 3/8" from the side of it for the drainpipe...

Thanks for your reply, joecaption. So we previously had a 32"x32" shower with a wall partition on the left (hence the hole in the ceiling), and my wife would like a little more space in the shower. Is there such a thing as a 32"x40" neoangle?

If we do end up sticking to the 32"x32" footprint, we'll probably do this model (pictured below) for its open look and space-saving door, although I worry that it's so cheap.
It would definitely save me from asking all these questions though...

The pan you show will not work---the ends are open and have a flange for attaching to the wall---so a glass partition won't work with that--

You have the choice of having an onyx pan custom made or building and tiling your own.
How to build a shower - Building a shower pan with pre-sloped mortar bed, liner and curb.

Any good local glass shop can make the glass panel---bring your wallet---expect to pay $500 to $700 for an end panel that size--plus the brackets.
