Forget the Tub; Walk-In Showers Are the Way to Go
Recently, we are seeing the trend to replace bathtubs with walk-in showers in homes. Fewer people use their bathtubs and see benefits to having a larger shower. Find out why so many people are going tub-free and if it is a good choice for you.
Ease of cleaning may be one of the biggest draws on converting to a walk-in shower. Without a tub, you are left with mostly walls and a floor to clean – easy! Choose a doorless design for even less to clean.
If you are planning on growing old in your home, a walk-in shower could be a necessary feature. Elderly and handicapped homeowners prefer the ease of a shower that doesn’t have a floor curb, that is spacious, and that doesn’t have a door.
Luxurious & Modern
The clean lines and simplicity of a walk-in shower makes a statement in a bathroom. A doorless design combines function with style and provides a minimalistic feel.
Walk-in showers can be custom designed to fit any size or shaped bathroom. This uniqueness is another way to add instant appeal to any bathroom.
There are many benefits to eliminating a bathtub, but before installing a walk-in, you should consider these points.
The appeal of a walk-in shower is its spacious feel, but to achieve this, sufficient space is needed. Not all bathrooms are appropriate for a walk-in shower. If a walk-in is a must, compromise with less storage space or a single sink cabinet.
All-glass enclosures create a modern, clean look but do not provide privacy. If your living situation involves sharing the bathroom so everyone can get ready at the same time, a walk-in shower may not be for you.
Some realtors believe a home’s value depreciates without a bathtub. If you have another bathroom with a tub, proceed with your walk-in project.
