We're getting semi-frameless shower screens and my husband really doesn't want a hob at the bottom of the shower. We've been advised we can delete them however the overall height of shower will be approximately 170mm lower (only a problem if over 6 foot apparently). Anyway, my question is: has anyone chosen not to have these hobs and how did it look?

I think you will find a lot of people here have hobless showers.
We will have three walk in showers, two with doors and the ensuite without.
Unfortunately I can't show you what it looks like because it's not in yet!

Hi,love the hobless
We have been quoted an extra $2,000 from the builder we were looking at to have the hobless
$1,000 extra for the semi frameless screens which i didn't think was bad
I think they look "WOW"
good luck with your choice,

I have hobs, and I think they are appropriate long term. Short term, style wise hobless may "seem" great, but practically I think you will be replacing seals at the bottom of the shower door a lot. For those of you who like style over practicality, they are great:)
I would not have hobless.

I'm going for flush floor tiles with a shower screen on top without any waterproof membrane protruding through the floor at the shower screen. I'm considering the entire bathroom as a shower for waterproofing purposes. Nice clean look.

It looks like they might be Phoenix Rush tapware or similar. Are they 3/4 turn ceramic taps? If it is then it is definitely a hole for a grub screw that then has a little…
