Upgrade Your Renovation

Are you building a new bathroom? Or maybe you’re considering remodeling your old one. If you’re thinking of getting a new bath tub or shower, consider a walk-in shower. In addition to their minimalist design and easy accessibility, there are other benefits, like:

More Space

When you have a traditional bath tub in your bathroom, it makes the area look clunky and small. With a walk-in shower, however, you can create more of an open space and add a design element to your bathroom. You can even increase the “open” look with shower side panels made from glass.

Easy to Clean

Whether you have a bath tub shower or a stand-alone shower, both have many corners and crevices that you need to get to in order to thoroughly clean it. With a walk-in shower, there are minimal areas like this, which makes it extremely easy to clean.

Wheelchair Accessible

If you live with someone who uses a wheelchair, you know how difficult it can be for them to get in and out of a bath tub or a stand-alone shower. Because of this, a walk-in shower is the perfect solution. They’ll be able to comfortably access the shower, which reduces their dependency on friends or family members.


Walk-in showers are made to withstand wear and tear for years. They use fewer parts than a regular bath tub or shower, which means there aren’t as many parts that can break. And, if maintained properly, their materials will last for a very long time, which makes them more durable than your current bathroom solution.

Fewer Clogs

You know that with a bath tub, the water you use to fill it can take a long time to go down the drain. This is because bath tubs have crevices that keep water from flowing smoothly down the drain. With a walk-in shower, water won’t get trapped anywhere (where it can stand and collect bacteria).
