One of the key benefits of a walk-in shower is the ability to enter a shower space free of any doors.
This style of shower would commonly be seen within a wet-room environment where the requirement for a shower tray is unnecessary due to the drainage being installed directly into the floor. This removes the need to have to step up and over into a shower tray, therefore, maintaining level access.
Although there are many variants on what is classed as a “walk-in-shower”, it is now recognised that the use of a low profile shower tray in conjunction with a single piece of glass could also be classed as a walk-in shower.
This style of showering can give the feeling of openness and is extremely simplistic in its approach. Not only can it prove to be very stylish in design, but it also lends itself to the feeling of space along with the ease of manoeuvrability accessing the shower area.
For many people it is seen as a replacement for the traditional bath, particularly with people who prefer to shower. It can also be of benefit when the less able find it more difficult to manoeuvre themselves in and out of a bath.
