Why Choose a Walk-In Shower in Your Bathroom?

Bathroom with Walk-in Shower

A walk-in shower can help protect your loved ones from tripping and injuring themselves in the shower.

If you’ve decided to have your bathroom remodeled, one of the things you might be wondering is whether you should keep your bathtub setup. For those with mobility troubles, getting in and out of your shower, especially with the standard tub setup, can be difficult and even dangerous. Many have ended up in the hospital as a result of tripping and falling in their bathrooms. If you’re worried about that possibly happening to you or your loved ones, a walk-in shower can provide the safety and security you’re looking for in your new bathroom remodel.

Easy to Install

Some think that a new walk-in shower takes a long time to install, but in fact, the stall can be fitted into the same space as your current tub fairly easily. The process is simple and involves removing the old shower and bathtub before replacing it with the new walk-in shower.

Safety Features

A walk-in shower can be customized with safety features in order to make the showering experience safer and easier. Grab bars can be fitted onto the sides of the shower to assist with entering and exiting the stall. These features can help anyone with mobility issues and prevent slipping and potential injury!

Health Benefits

Many people who are afraid of injuring themselves by using their old bathtub/shower combination don’t bathe as much as they should. A new walk-in stall can help make it easier for them to get daily showers. The health benefits of daily showers are numerous, from reducing the symptoms of arthritis and improving heart health to promoting more restful sleep.

Peace of Mind

A new walk-in shower will give you peace of mind. You’ll be better able to access your shower at any time. The safety features can help prevent injuries associated with slipping and falling in the bathroom. And the process is a simple remodeling procedure that won’t be a lengthy process!
