Walk-in showers are extremely practical, sleek and can be made to fit into bathrooms of all shapes and sizes. Not only a stylish upgrade to your bathroom, a walk-in shower can create the illusion of a larger space for showering as they're more open and usually created using a single panel of glass.

This convenient and hassle-free way of showering is highly sought after and can be incorporated into any design of bathroom. Often, we see walk-in showers showcasing a very paired back and simplistic look, making them appealing to modern and design-led homes. With a number of benefits for homeowners, here's 5 reasons why you should choose to install a walk-in shower...


A walk-in shower has huge design potential as you can have them as big or as small as you like. It takes away that search for the perfect size cubicle if you have a slightly tighter space or at the other end of the scale, you may want a double shower. As most walk-in showers are just partially enclosed by a single glass panel, this creates the feeling of more open space, and your bathroom will naturally appear bigger and less cluttered.


It goes without saying that walk-in showers have that extra touch of style and give your bathroom a more sleek and high-end look. There is something strikingly attractive about the simplicity of their designs that adds a real element of luxury you don't find with more conventional showers.


The accessibility of a walk-in shower is advantageous as there are no moving parts or steps, you simply walk in and out, making them ideal for those less mobile. There is no need to raise your legs or open and close sliding doors, it's just a hassle-free experience that is practical in every way.


Bathroom suites are an investment and you want them to have a prolonged lifespan. Walk-in showers are extremely durable as they have less parts and no doors. Moving parts naturally become worn over time, but with a walk-in shower, you simply have a fixed panel of glass and a shower tray, so they tend to have more longevity. Not only that, walk-in showers can also add value to your home.

Fuss-Free Maintenance

As well as being spacious, stylish, convenient and durable, you'll be glad to hear a walk-in shower is very easy to clean and maintain. There are less crevices for dirt to bury its way into and the glass, shower tray or waterproof flooring are generally very easy to clean.
