Creating a walk in shower space

When it comes to bathroom design, a walk in shower space is becoming a popular option for both large and smaller sized bathroom spaces. This can be a stylish way to redesign your bathroom, and also addresses accessibility concerns too. But what are the important considerations when creating a walk in shower space? And how can you be sure to achieve the right results?

What are the important considerations when creating a walk in shower space?

If you want to create an effective and stylish walk in shower space there are a number of different considerations to take into account. These include:

  • The layout
  • The materials
  • The fixtures

The layout

One of the first things to consider is the layout. It’s important to choose a layout that will allow plenty of space for your other bathroom fixtures, including the sink and the toilet, without restricting access to the walk in shower entrance. For the best results, you will need to create a layout that allows for a seamless transition between the rest of the bathroom and the shower itself. 

Choosing the materials for a walk in shower space

Another important factor to consider is the material of the fixtures and the tiles. It’s essential that a bathroom with a walk in shower space has water resistant materials, due to the potential for splashing, and the steam from the heat of the shower. Water resistant materials will be able to withstand the conditions and stay looking as good as new, while other materials that do not resist water will need to be periodically treated and well maintained. 

Choosing the fixtures for a walk in shower

In addition, you will also need to consider the fixtures for your walk in shower space. When it comes to the fixtures, the type of shower door, and the type of showerhead fixture and controls can make a significant difference to not only the quality of your shower, but also the practicality. From eco-friendly shower heads to power showers there are a range of options available depending on your individual requirements and preferences.
