Walk-in showers are making a big impression in bathroom remodelling. With a low threshold and a choice of sliding glass or PETG opening doors, a walk-in shower is a stylish and sleek addition to any bathroom.
With its hygienic easy clean wall panels, a walk-in shower is easily maintained with no more mouldy tiles to scrub. Walk in showers can usually be installed in a day and provide an elegant alternative to a very expensive wet-room.
The low access threshold means you can make more use of the space and provides safe and easy bathing especially with the addition of grab rails and fold down shower seats.
If you’re thinking of remodelling your bathroom, you can future proof your bathing safety and enjoyment by installing a practical and attractive walk-in shower.
What is a walk-in shower?
A walk-in shower has all the features of a conventional shower but with a low threshold that makes it easy to step in and out of. This makes it perfect for those with limited mobility either through age, injury or disability.
Unlike an open wet room, a walk-in shower can be fitted with a fixed glass panel to contain most of the water and to maximise accessibility. There are also options for half height PETG safety doors or sliding glass doors giving you the opportunity to customise the product to suit your own needs.
For people who need a little extra help, walk in showers can be installed with grab rails or built-in seating options. But even with these added safety features, it can still be used by all the family.
Is a walk-in shower worth it?
If you want something that’s stylish, accessible and easy to clean then a walk-in shower is worth it.
For an elderly person or people with limited mobility, getting rid of the bath and installing a walk-in shower is not only a sensible option but it also gives them the freedom to shower safely in their own home retaining their independence and dignity.
One walk-in shower user said: ‘Removing the bathtub and replacing it with a walk-in shower was excellent. I was a little nervous to start with not knowing the outcome but showering in my new walk-in is more than just a shower – it’s a happy, relaxing experience.’
