Walk In Showers
A walk in shower forms the centrepiece of a wet room, and the level-access aspect of these showers is popular for both its style and practicality. We have compiled a list of six benefits of walk in showers – if you feel we’ve missed any out feel free to add your comments below.
1. Easy Access
A walk in shower sits flush with the floor, so there is no lip of a shower tray or awkward bath to step over. This makes a walk in shower ideal for the disabled, young kids and the elderly.
By tiling your walk in shower with non-slip mosaic tiles, it provides a safe showering environment and minimises the risk of slips and falls.
3. Flexible Design
A walk in shower can be easily tailored to suit the available space and the decor of the room. You can also opt to have a shower screen – or indeed multiple screens – which helps protect the fixtures and fittings from being splashed by water from the shower area.
Walk in showers are fully tiled and can be coordinated to suit your preferred wet room decor. Alternatively, you can choose to have a splash of colour or contrasting tiles or mosaics in the shower to make a design feature.
5. Maximises Use Of Space
Walk in showers are ideal for maximising the use of small spaces. With walk in shower trays starting from 800mm x 800mm, you can create a walk in shower in the smallest of spaces. If you have a larger area available then a level-access shower can create a spacious and luxurious shower area.
6. Easy To Clean
A walk in shower is generally easier to clean than a traditional shower because the entire shower is waterproofed and tiled with clean, simple lines.
