Are you thinking about converting your old bathtub into a walk-in shower? Is it a custom job or a prefab unit? Well, this is one of the most popular remodeling projects for many homeowners. A walk-in shower always creates the illusion of more space. Even better, it will bring out a clean look in your bathroom.
Do you love a quick shower over a long soak? This is the most ideal conversion to suit your lifestyle. However, before tearing out the old tub, you need to do your research on the costs, installation and design of the project. Choose logistical considerations and the best design ideas for your walk-in showers to guarantee success.
Unlike traditional stalls, walk-in showers don’t need a door or curtain to block the spray of water. As such, it will have a spacious and open look. Most prefab units are installed with shallow curbs to prevent the excess water from getting out of the bathroom floor. On the other hand, most custom walk-in showers don’t have curbs but a gently sloping floor to allow more accessibility. It’s a great benefit for people with mobility issues or joint issues.
There are numerous design options for your walk-in shower. One of the most common is the glass enclosure. Here, the glass creates a bright and airy feeling. If you want to add more natural light, you can add a window to the shower. If not possible, you can try a skylight. However, if none of these options are possible, you should consider an all-glass enclosure to guarantee proper lighting even with artificial lighting.
Another option is walk-in showers without doors. We have compiled a few bathroom remodeling designs from our previous projects so feel free to take a look. You can make all the other walls solid, glass or have a solid base with the top half of glass. It all comes down to your preferences and tastes.
You need to think about the all and floor design of your bathroom. If you want a solid wall, you should choose one in a neutral tile color to make the room airy. You can create a unique style with the back wall that will be the focus for the walk-in shower and entire bathroom. You can’t go wrong with a back wall made of stone mosaic to draw attention immediately someone walks into the shower.
You can choose different materials for the floor such as stone, ceramic and glass to guarantee waterproof features. You can either go for a neutral tile design to keep up with the minimalist style or an outstanding design to complement the magnificent back wall. Don’t forget about the accessories that play a huge role in the overall style.
Circular showerheads bring out a traditional but warm feel. Square rainfall showerheads bring out a futuristic feel. Other types of accessories include grab bars, corner seat, soap dish and a spa-style bench, especially if you have a large walk-in shower.
