Benefits of a Walk-In Shower: Why it’s Worth the Investment

A walk-in shower is an easy and affordable way to improve the look of your bathroom and add resale value to your home. Not only do walk-in showers reduce the amount of work required to keep your bathroom clean, but also offer many spa-inspired benefits and design options that can make getting ready in the morning more enjoyable. 

The basic design of a walk-in shower features an open, tiled space without any enclosures. The floor is flush or curbless, so you can easily exit or enter the shower without any barriers or restrictions. This makes them a great option for people looking to create a barrier-free shower for the elderly, particularly for older guests or those with mobility challenges.

Let’s look at more of the benefits associated with this style of shower.

Cleaning is Simple

One of the best walk-in-shower advantages is how easy it is to keep it clean. No more having to get down on your knees to scrub a tub.

Walk-in showers have the added benefit of being easy to clean with traditional glass cleaners and a soft cloth or squeegee.

You can also apply a daily residue preventer that is sprayed on and keeps soap scum and grime from forming in your shower.

Perfect for Small Bathrooms

Modern homes can have limited space options. A walk-in shower allows you to maximize the space in your bathroom while allowing you to have a comfortable and relaxing shower.

Walk-in showers are built to your custom dimensions, and because there are no barriers at the base, make it easier to put in just about any location that your plumbing can accommodate.

Improved Accessibility

Getting in and out of the shower shouldn’t be dangerous. By removing walls and side barriers, people can easily walk in and out without worrying about slipping or tripping.

Walk-in showers can also be adapted to include additional accessibility features such as railing.

You can also add a walk-in shower with a seat for elderly people, so you can feel confident that your loved one is safe and accommodated.

Easy Design

A walk-in shower is designed to fit into any space. There is no need for a significant renovation.

Simply let your contractor know where you would like the walk-in shower to be placed and watch as it takes shape right before your eyes.

Each walk-in shower can be fully customized with design features such as shelves, faucets, taps, and other finishes that can create a spa experience in your own home.

Increase Home’s Value 

A walk-in shower is one of the most desirable features in modern homes. Not only do they look and feel more open, but they also give home buyers peace of mind, knowing it is one less thing they have to consider in the future.

A walk-in shower is also one of the best ways to add a sense of luxury and elegance to your home.

They can also be built in any space from a master bathroom to an ensuite, so it is easy to incorporate a shower feature into just about any room, adding to buyer appeal.
