Trend Alert: Walk-in Showers

walk-in showers

A walk-in shower, a bathtub, and a hidden toilet: this bathroom has it all.

While there are numerous trends and fascinations that move in and out of home design every year, some stick around, and others even pick up steam. Once such popular innovation in bathroom design is walk-in showers. This highly useful update is sweeping homes across the country, many choosing it over bathtubs or smaller showers for different reasons. So, why exactly are walk-in showers becoming so popular with homeowners across America? Read on to learn more.

Walk-In Showers Are More Practical For Many Homeowners

While some people favor long luxurious baths, many Americans are finding that they do not use their bathtubs at all. Why sacrifice space for a bathtub that never actually gets used? For those living with certain physical limitations, a bath tub attached to a small shower is simply not practical. Whether it’s a question of mobility, aging, or taste, the old bathtub and shower combination is simply not ideal for a wide range of people. Whether you simply favor more space or need a more accessible shower, walk-in showers can be the answer you are looking for.

Walk-In Showers Give You More Options

The extra space walk-in showers provide allows you to truly customize your shower and have exactly what you want. This space allows room for multiple shower heads, a built-in seat, and designs that may include or forgo shower doors altogether. These truly allow you to have whatever may make you the most comfortable. From aesthetic to practical concerns, this versatility allows you to have a shower that suits your present and future needs. Many seniors prefer these more user-friendly showers. They not only look more contemporary, but are all around a better fit for many lifestyles, needs, and preferences.
