Walk-In Showers by Clear Choice Bath
If you’re currently in the process of having your bathroom remodeled, you may be thinking about getting a walk-in shower instead of a bathtub. The walk-in showers have numerous benefits to offer homeowners. Of course, we love bathtubs too and install lots of them, but if you normally don’t take a bath and you don’t have children that would need to take a bath instead of a shower, the walk-in shower may be the perfect addition to your bathroom.
Some Key Benefits to a Walk-In Shower
It’s Better For Those With Mobility Issues
Does someone in your home struggle with mobility? Although this person may not necessarily be confined to a wheelchair, this individual could have a difficult time getting in and out of the bathtub. It’s much easier to get into a walk-in shower because you’d simply need to slide the shower door open and walk right inside. The shower itself is often floor-level, so there is not much stepping involved when it’s time to get inside of it to wash up.
Free Up Some Floor Space in Your Bathroom
If you’re not getting a tub, you’ll get to have more space inside the bathroom to move around. If you felt like you were a bit cramped up inside of your old bathroom because everything was so close together, such as the toilet, sink, and tube, you won’t have to worry about that anymore. Eliminating the tub means freeing up even more floor space, leaving you with more room to do different things inside of the bathroom without feeling claustrophobic, such as waxing, applying makeup, or even styling your hair.
Customizing Your Shower Experience
If you’ve decided you’re going to go with the walk-in shower because it’s more convenient to have and it’s going to help you save more space in your bathroom, you’ll need to choose a specific design for your shower. There are many options to choose from, so it may be wise to look online for inspiration before you start coming up with ideas for your new walk-in shower.
Adding Natural Light
If you don’t want the shower to look too dark inside the bathroom, you could consider replacing walls with glass. Depending on the layout of your bathroom, you may be able to remove all or part of a shower wall and replace it with glass or just an opening without glass. This allows more light into your walk-in shower.
Having a Bench Installed
Aside from finding a way to bring in more natural light inside of the shower, you may want to consider having a small bench installed. If you can’t stand for lengthy periods or if you simply prefer the convenience of being able to sit down and relax as the water from the shower-head presses against your skin, a bench is the perfect idea. Many people choose to have benches installed inside of their walk-in showers because it’s convenient for them and gives them a chance to sit if they’re feeling tired and don’t want to stand too long.
Making the Most of the Space You Have in Your Bathroom
No matter the design you choose to go with, it’s important make the most of the amount of space you have available in your bathroom. You may be able to get a bit more creative with the design of your walk-in shower if you have more space in your bathroom, but even smaller spaces can have neat walk-in shower designs.
