remodeling the shower

my bathroom is 32x32 and I would like to make it 32x60. Can I use a pre-fab pan?

I assume you mean the shower is 32x32, not the bathroom??? To install a larger shower base, you most likely need to make some framing changes. This often means stealing space from another room or closet.

Most standard pans are 36x60---you may be able to locate a 32----I suggest that you call a plumbing supply house---you may find that the service and prices are what you want.--Mike--

This will almost certainly involve moving the drain.

Remodeling the shower will involve some framing, moving the drain. You could use a preformed shower pan or go with a tile shower base. If you go with a tile shower base you should hire a bathroom remodeling contractor. The results will be much better. Preformed is simplethough.

Check out the 32x60 Kohler Salient receptor, I put in the larger model and really like it. Easy to clean with super durability.

You can find a wide variety of pans and shower enclosures online at lots of websites. Check out on the bathoom showers tab for a good selection or do a Google search for other sites.

Dreamline is one of the most popular manufactures of shower doors, shower enclosures and pans. They come in quite a few standard sizes and I believe 32x60 is one of the sizes.
