Best Way - Window interfering with simple tub/shower kit


Hello,

I am currently remodeling my bathroom and have discovered that a simple tub/shower kit doesn't seem like it will fit because of a window on the one end. Most of the kits are have 30" deep walls. My problem is on the one end a window was installed and is about 27" out, what is the best way to work around this interference? Any help is appreciated

Is the 27" to the trim or the actual side of the window.
Have you considered tile instead. The big one would be to move the window.

Thanks Neal! The 27" is basically to the side of the window, i was hoping a smaller trim would help the issue, and i did consider moving the window but with the exterior/interior work i didn't want to tackle that. My father seems to think that the Kohler Choreograph shower walls would be a good fix, and just cut as needed to accommodate the window edge. That kit is a bit pricey and would require a separate tub purchase, but DIY helps save some money.

I have not seen the product but it does look like it would be good for going around the window, maybe trim and dress the window with the same product.
If you are planning on a shower curtain go with the curved rod, it makes the shower feel big but it can be moved inward to protect the window from the water. If you plan for that it should have backing in the wall to attach too.
