The author talks about how 32 inches depth feels too cramped for a shower, but I have been showering for years in this size. It seems fine to me.

Regina, I believe that is why she said too small "to me" and "might work for you." I went to a showroom and stood in a 32" shower and decided I needed at least 36." We all have our unique needs. My 37.75" base is in my garage, and construction starts next week. Luckily, the room next door will hardly miss the foot we are stealing from one side!

I got rid of one 32" shower and am about to discard the 2nd 32" shower downstairs. They were just too cramped to comfortably shower in. I used one to stack extra blankets and the other to store bags of dog food and paper products. A 36" is a minimum I would like. When washing my hair my elbows hit the walls, and heaven forbid you drop the bar of soap! My opinion.
