A walk in shower can make a huge impact on the look and function of the bathroom. A walk in shower is a stand-alone shower unit that is not combined with a traditional bathtub. It is separated from the rest of the bathroom by a door which is always made of glass. It provides easy access as you simply have to walk in inside the unit. They come in a lot of varieties; some have tiled floors and patterned glass while others are utilitarian types with regular glass doors and acrylic non-slip floors. The use of clear glass or acrylic will allow the look of the tile and the fixtures with in the shower to be seen giving the entire bathroom an open and airy feel. Some varieties have frames while others are without frames. Frameless showers are most often used as they lend that classy and elegant look which is frequently sought for in contemporary designs.
Walk-in showers are becoming increasingly popular in many residential bathrooms due to their sleek, modern appearance and typically easy to clean surfaces. One of the greatest things about a walk in shower enclosure is being able to share it with another person. If you have children or pets, a walk in showering area is the perfect space in which to hose them down. For the elderly, these types of showers are much easier to get into and out of than a bathtub with a shower. And finally, taking a shower is much more efficient than taking a bath as it conserves more water.
