Your bathroom can be the perfect place where you can relax and rejuvenate yourself after a long day, and it can also be the place where you can perform your grooming functions in relative comfort. But this is only if your bathroom has just the right elements. What elements are we talking about? Simple: a good shower enclosure, the right fixtures and fittings such as taps, basins, and so on, and even the right accessories such as lighting. There is one way through which you can make your bathroom a more delightful room in your home, though: through the installation of a walk in shower. If you are thinking of replacing an old shower with a new one or are in the process of building your new bathroom from the ground up, a walk in shower can be an excellent addition. Here are the top four benefits of a modern walk in shower you should know:
Compared to the traditional shower enclosure, a walk in shower is actually easier to install, primarily since it has fewer moving parts and elements. You can even choose to have a pre-built walk in shower enclosure which already comes with the necessary parts, such as glass panels, shower trays, and the like.
A more comfortable shower space
With a walk in shower, you are definitely a lot more comfortable when taking a shower. Why so? The answer is simple: because a walk in shower does not come with awkward shower trays which protrude, making it more difficult for the users to step into the shower. Walk in showers have no doors to speak of (unless you choose to have one installed) – instead, you can just install a single screen or several screens in order to protect your other fittings and fixtures from splashes of water. Walk in showers make for barrier-free, easier, and more comfortable showering every time.
It’s for everyone
If you have some family members with mobility issues, a walk in shower can be the perfect solution to enhance their safety whilst taking a shower. The same is true if you have small children – since there are no major thresholds or barriers which they have to step over, you can eliminate the risk of trips, falls, or other accidents.
A minimalist, easy-clean design
Minimalism is all the rage, and modern walk in shower enclosures perfectly fit the bill. With their sleek and minimalist design, walk in showers are easy to clean and maintain. There are no corners where dirt or grime can build up, and the showers’ glass panels are easy to wipe down, with no other major moving parts (such as railings) as well.
