Supersized walk-in showers continue to grow in popularity. But it isn’t simply because these showers are stylish and beautiful that draws so many homeowners to incorporate a walk-in design. If you’re a new log home buyer or planning to reno your master bath, here are a few important factors to consider.
Walk-In Showers: Aging in Place
A walk-in shower design is perfect for those who want to maintain the ability to live in their home safely and comfortably regardless of physical ability. With no tub skirt to step over, entering and exiting showers like this is effortless. Plus there’s plenty of room for built-in bench seating and safety bars. Be sure your contractor installs a hand-held shower head and tile that has a good slip-resistance rating, too.
Walk-In Showers: Variety
One of the best features about tile is that it is available in so many different colors, patterns and textures. Whether monochromatic or a unique design of mix and match tiles, your new walk-in shower is a blank canvas. Go ahead; release your inner creative license.
In addition to tile options, there are hundreds of design elements to consider as well. Are you looking for a curbless entrance for wheelchair dwellers, a two-person compatible design or a spa-like atmosphere? Whatever the case may be, your options are endless. While you’re at it, give thought to a steam shower; body, rain, or massaging shower heads; mood lighting and waterproof sound systems. It is likely you won’t be disappointed you included some of these start-of the-art features.
Walk-In Showers: Durability
Your dream log home or timber frame home is going to last forever – you should be able to say the same about your shower. Walk-in showers are made with fewer components than a regular bathtub or shower. This means there aren’t as many parts that can break. Materials will last for years and years if maintained properly.
Walk-In Showers: Make a Statement!
Do you like to color outside the lines and make your own personal statement about style and preference? Then consider incorporating this theory into your master bath with a supersized walk-in shower. You won’t be disappointed with your decision!
