5 Types of Showers to Consider

Posted in Showers

When making an improvement to your home, there are several factors to consider. The first being what room or area of your home you'll upgrade. Once you narrow that down, you have to decide on the brand or type of replacement.

This applies to everything from the front doorknob to the shower in the back. We'll be covering the latter in today's post and you have plenty to choose from when it comes to the world of showers. Let's go over five of the most popular types of showers for you to consider.

1. Roll-In Showers

For those who have mobility as a primary concern, you'll be happy to know that there are showers that are even accessible with walkers. A roll-in shower, for example, will make a bathing space accessible and comfortable for people of all ability levels. This includes grab bars located where you want them, as well as a shower seat and food pedestals placed wherever it makes your daily living easier.

2. Walk-In Showers

Providing the benefits of a walk-in tub but with the design of a shower, a walk-in shower takes out the difficulty of navigating a traditional bathtub entry/exit. By removing the step typically associated with a tub or shower, the bathing experience is much safer for aging individuals. While a roll-in shower is ideal for someone who requires assistance, a walk-in shower provides a safer, more independent showering experience.

3. Tub-to-Shower

We can convert your existing tub into a safer shower that gives your bathroom a modern, fresh facelift while working with the existing space you do have.

4. Custom Showers

5. Special Materials

In addition to size and style, one big factor involved in the type of a shower is the material used to make it. Acrylic showers come with fantastic benefits like durable construction, antimicrobial properties, extreme customizability and limited lifetime warranties. Enjoy all of the other benefits of the shower you're envisioning without sacrificing quality in material.
