Benefits of a Walk-in Shower
January 5, 2017
A walk-in shower brings many benefits to a homeowner’s bathroom. If you’re wondering whether a walk-in shower is the right fit for your bathroom remodel, here are some things to consider.
Walk-in Showers are Easier to Access
The most obvious benefit of a walk-in shower is that it grants easier access to the shower than a step-in tub and shower. Whether you go with a curb or no-curb option for your walk-in shower, the profile of the curb itself will still be significantly smaller than the wall of a bathtub.
Walk-in Showers Provide More Room to Shower
Along the same lines as easier access, walk-in showers also provide more functional space. This is because the materials used to build a walk-in shower have a lower profile. Your local bathroom remodeling company can also easily customize your walk-in shower to offer more showering space. With more space when you shower, you no longer need to worry about accidentlly knocking bottles off the wall.
Walk-in Showers Offer More Flexibility
Walk-in showers offer more variety than a typical tub and/or shower. As opposed to the space being confined to the walls of the tub, walk-in showers can be built to incorporate benches, grab bars, and other features.
Walk-in Showers are Easier to Clean
Walk-in showers are much easier to clean because, as previously mentioned, they are much easier to move around in. In addition, the construction of more modern walk-in showers typically have less nooks and crannies as compared to a traditional shower.
Walk-in Showers are Environmentally-Friendly
When comparing a shower to a bath, an average shower consumes less water than does an average bath. Not only will the reduction in water-usage help the environment, it will also help you save money on your water and electric bills each month.
Walk-in Showers Look Amazing
To some, the thought of a walk-in shower brings the idea of functionality and not beauty. Today’s modern walk-in showers couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern walk-in showers offer tasteful and minimalist designs which easily compliment the style of your bathroom. In truth, a well-constructed walk-in shower can be a great centerpiece for your bathroom.
