If you’re considering purchasing a walk-in shower, you’re probably well aware of how popular this kind of bathing facility has become over the last ten years or so. Not only do they offer a convenient way to bathe but, when done well, they can give your bathroom a look of luxury designer style, and add value to your property. They’re also very convenient as, unlike wet rooms, walk-in showers are very easy to install, as they’re usually fitted directly onto a shower tray and don’t require your bathroom floor to be tanked.
Let’s have a look at the top 5 top reasons to choose a walk-in shower.
- Walk-in showers are easy to use and extremely practical
Perhaps the number one reason to install a walk-in shower is practicality and ease of use. They can be fitted to your specific criteria, whether you want an extra large shower tray to give ease of access, or you’ve chosen a simple glass panel to contain the water rather than traditional shower doors. They also come with a full selection of shower screens, shower curtains, safety rails and ramps, so that you can fashion the perfect walk-in shower for you, without having to compromise on style.
- Minimal maintenance is required to keep your walk-in shower looking like new
Once the shower is fitted you’ll find that minimal maintenance, other than regular cleaning, is required. Depending on the type you’ve chosen, you won’t have to worry about seals and door handles, cleaning with soap and water should be enough to keep the glass and tray sparkling, plus the absence of sealants and grout means no nasty build up of mould. If you need any further advice on keeping your walk-in shower looking as good as the day it was installed, our team at Walk In Showers and Baths will be happy to give you the benefit of our considerable knowledge.
- Choose from a range of styles to suit your tastes, your mobility and your budget
The finished look of your walk-in shower is all down to you. They come in a variety of sizes, meaning that you can still have a room for a bath even in a small bathroom, plus you can choose from slimline shower trays that can be fitted flush with your bathroom floor to make them easily accessible. Many walk-in showers come complete with easy-to-clean, limescale-resistant toughened safety glass which is not only easy to maintain and safe, but which gives an open and airy feel to your bathroom.
- You’ll only have to change your walk-in shower if you want something different
As long as you choose a reputable supplier and installer, your new walk-in shower should last as long as you need it to last. By considering who will use the shower and how it will be utilised, you can plan an enclosure that can stand up to the kind of use it will be getting. Furthermore, many walk-in showers come with a lifetime guarantee, so it won’t need changing unless you get the urge for a change.
- You’ll get a luxurious look for your bathroom at a very affordable price
While walk-in showers look sleek, luxurious and ultra-stylish, their simple designs have the ability to keep the price relatively low. This means that you get a whole new, and very modern look for your bathroom without a hefty price tag.
