More and more people today are choosing not to install a bathtub in their bathroom. This is because the idea of the walk in shower has gained so much popularity. There are homes though where it is not recommended to have this type of shower. In most cases though you will want this kind of shower, but with it you should make sure to include some additional features so you’re sure to have a very complete bathroom.
Walk in showers are so popular because they allow people to do all sorts of things with the styling of the shower enclosure itself. People can really put their style tastes on display with a properly done shower that you walk into. Tile is usually the way people decide to finish off their new showers. While some may choose a fabricated shower stall, in most cases you’ll find that people use creative tiling to tell the design story that they want to tell.
Now when it comes to this type of shower, you may not want to have one installed in your home. Usually this is only because it is a home with only one bathroom. If you have a home that only has one bathroom then have a single shower that you can walk into is probably not the way to go. Too many people also want to be able to take a nice bath on occasion. If a person does not have the option to sit down in a bathtub in a one bathroom home then it is quite likely they will not want to buy the house when it is on the market.
Now, if a home has more than one bathroom, it is quite common for the master bath to have the walk in shower installed in it. This is usually because the shower isn’t the only feature of that particular bathroom. The shower is the added feature, but that usually means there will also be a freestanding soaking tub in the room as well. The general rule is that in every home there should be at least one tub. It is best though to make sure that there is a tub in the master suite no matter what the shower is like.
The real benefit to a shower that you can walk into is that it is usually easy to clean and not too tough to maintain. You don’t need shower curtains or shower doors with many of the newer walk in type showers. This is because the stall itself is quite deep, so no water will escape from it to begin with. This means that you just walk in and walk out nothing is in your way.
