Walk-In Shower in Bathroom

When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, functionality should be at the forefront of your process. For some people, that means undergoing an accessible bathroom remodel. Our PNW contractors at Miller Home Renovations have over a decade of experience handling all types of shower remodels, including ADA-compliant models for anyone with mobility issues or who is planning to age in place. 

That said, we’re a trustworthy source for information when it comes to deciding if this type of shower is the right choice for your space. In fact, we’ve broken down the four biggest advantages of walk-in showers, so you can make the most informed decision.

Walk-in showers come out on top in many categories, including these: 

  1. Accessibility
  2. Versatility
  3. Spaciousness
  4. Home Value

Improved Accessibility and Safety

The main benefit of installing a walk-in shower is that it makes your bathroom a safer and more accessible space for people living with mobility issues. These shower styles can be built with a variety of features that make them safer than a standard shower, including:

  • Slip-Resistant Flooring
  • Low-Barrier Entryways
  • Easy-to-Reach Controls
  • Handheld Showerheads
  • Safety Grab Bars
  • Convenient Shelving
  • Recessed Storage Spaces 

Customizable Designs for All Types of Bathrooms

Just because you’re installing an ADA-compliant shower doesn’t mean you have to let it detract from your bathroom’s overall aesthetic. Walk-in showers will bring a modern look to your space, but you can also go for a more traditional look.

With the right bathroom remodeling contractors on your side, you can choose your own custom:

  • Shower Doors
  • Built-In Seating Styles
  • Hardware & Accessories
  • Accessible Features

…and more! 

More Shower Space

Instead of confining your shower space to a tub, walk-in showers allow you to spread out and have more room to accommodate a wheelchair, bench seating, grab bars, additional storage spaces, and more! No matter the size of your bathroom, you can find a walk-in shower design that works for you! 

Higher Home Value

On top of making your bathroom a more accessible space, walk-in showers can make smaller bathrooms appear larger. And both of these are positives for people looking to buy a new home. That said, an accessible bathroom remodel can increase your home’s overall value, which is a huge bonus is you’re planning to sell in the near future.
