Walk-In Shower vs. Bathtub

When it comes to taking a shower or a bath, everyone has a preference. There was a time where everyone had bathtubs at home, but in modern times many people have opted to remove their tubs in favour of a bigger walk-in shower space instead. There could be a number of reasons for this, for instance, it’s quicker and more efficient to take a shower, and it saves time and water. Also having a walk-in shower in place of a bathtub is the ideal way of saving space, particularly if you have a small bathroom. However, if you have small children, it may be easier to use a bathtub rather than a shower, and oftentimes people just prefer to relax after a hard day and take a nice bath.

Why Should You Consider A Walk-In Shower?

Here are some of the most common reasons people decide to install a wetroom or a walk-in shower instead of a bathtub.

  • Style options. Generally, almost all bathtubs look pretty much identical to the next. With Walk-in showers, there are so much more choices available on the market, from cubicle size and style to tilling options that give you a more personal or unique look.
  • Space savers. One of the significant advantages of having walk-in showers is that it creates loads of extra space within the bathroom, perfect for small bathrooms.
  • Efficiency. Using a shower is far more efficient than running a bath, it uses less water, and with other choices such as shower smart attachments/shower heads, you can save even more, especially if you prefer to take nice long showers!
  • Easy to clean. It’s easier to clean a shower cubicle than a bath; we don’t have to bend over the rub and scrub away residue, for a start! Simply spray the shower unit after use and use the showerhead to rinse it off easily afterwards, simple!
  • Safety. Bathtubs are great, but for those who have mobility issues, it can be difficult, getting in and out of the tub is never a safe option when you have struggles, especially if you live alone. Walk-in Showers are ideal, and a much safer option, and people can even add a chair so that they do not have to stand at all. It’s also less slippery than stepping onto a wet bathroom floor after struggling out of the tub.
