The bathroom is more than a place where you can take care of your private necessities – the modern bathroom has become a sanctuary where one can be at peace and either compose his or her thoughts, or let all the stress of the day wash away. For this reason, the bathroom has to be designed well, and choosing the right kind of shower is an important part of this design.
The walk in shower is becoming more and more popular – and it’s easy to understand why. Not only does it save a lot of money when it comes to installation and regular maintenance, it also allows the bather to feel a certain degree of freedom other shower options don’t offer. And we haven’t even mentioned the looks and styles of the different options yet. Here are the essential reasons why walk in showers are a great choice.
1. Flexible design
The great thing about the walk in shower is that it can be tailored to your personal needs, both in design and in other areas (such as safety for the younger or older ones, as well as comfort – when it comes to seating arrangements, for example). Choose the way you like it; it can be modified according to your own personal requirements.
2. Maximising space
British bathrooms are notorious for their small surface area, which makes the walk in shower even more convenient – the shower allows you to maximise space and use it to its full advantage.
3. Easy access
There are no barriers to consider; there is no high bath side to step over before you are in place to enjoy your shower experience. Not only does this make it safer, it also makes it much more convenient to enter and exit.
4. Showering in style
The elegance and aesthetic pleasure you get from showering in your walk in shower all depends on you; since it can be adjusted to your own requirements, you can impose your own sense of beauty and style on the enclosure.
5. Easy maintenance
Not only will you save on products and water – you’ll also save plenty of time. Easy maintenance for easy living.
One more thing should be mentioned: an important one – especially if you have children or elderly people making use of the walk in shower. The shower offers the opportunity for flexible design, and this means it can be optimised for safety as well. Hand-rails, slip-free tiles, rubber mats, a seating arrangement – whatever you feel should be installed in order to avoid slips and falls – can easily be installed (which is not always the case with other shower options). The fact is, the walk in shower offers endless possibilities and allows you to be free in so many ways.
