The way we bathe makes up an integral part of our lives. It’s often taken for granted, and the way in which a shower is designed and installed is often a much underestimated aspect of our daily lives. Luckily, more and more choices are available on the market, and when you think of all the alternatives available, it’s no wonder that the walk in shower is becoming one of the most popular choices.
But what exactly is a walk in shower, and why would more and more people choose to install this kind of shower? How does it work, how much does it cost, and what are the numerous benefits? If you’re thinking about installing a new shower, then this one’s for you: here are the top reasons why it makes sense to install a walk in shower.
You’re in, you’re out
This may seem like a nice advantage to most of us, but to children, the elderly, or those who otherwise struggle with mobility issues, this is an enormous benefit. Unlike in traditional showers, there are no hurdles to circumnavigate – no bath tub wall to climb over, no threshold to watch out for, no doors to close, and no curtains to arrange. You’re in and you’re out as you please, in a very easy manner.
Safety should always come first, and with the walk in shower you have the option to install non-slip tiles that can prevent nasty slips and falls which lead to serious accidents.
You decide the design
Because the walk in shower can easily be made according to your own needs and tailoured to your own tastes, you have freedom when it comes to design. You could opt for a shower screen (of which there are many options), or you could opt for none. You could choose the tiles, and you can choose the fixtures. You could even arrange for a seating area. Your options are limitless.
The use of space
Walk in showers make the best use of space and can be installed even in the smallest of bathrooms.
Good news for the person who regularly needs to clean and maintain: it’s a breeze compared to other alternatives.
And, last but certainly not least: it looks great and gives the bathroom a true modern and contemporary look that lets everyone know you live in style and comfort. This last reason should never be the main reason for getting a walk in shower installed, of course – but on the other hand, it’s always nice to bathe in a place that gives you a sense of luxury and modern quality. The way we bathe is too important to ignore, and we all deserve only the best.
