Ideas for Walk-In Showers Shrewsbury and County-wide
"When renovating my bathroom, should I install a walk-in shower?"
We have been asked the above question a number of times recently, so we decided to look to YouTube for inspiration, and give you our interpretation of the ideas we found as Walk In Shower ideas for Shrewsbury Shropshire Installations.
Welcome. I’m Mark and that is your burning question for today. So you are looking to update and renovate your master bathroom. You might be asking yourself, Should I put in a walk-in shower and will it be worth it? Walk in showers are also known as Roman showers, doorless showers or roll-in showers.
Our first video of Walk In Shower ideas (see above) is from a US plumbing company, as follows. If you wish to find out more about the company which created this video, please follow the YouTube link below this section of text.
We are finding that many of my customers want to put in a large, walk-in shower for several different reasons. Really, you should to be asking yourself, what do you want, what are your needs, and what really do you love or hate about your existing master bath.
I’m noticing that most of my customers are removing the existing whirlpool tubs that were put in during the 80s and 90s.
Most home buyers back then found them quite appealing, but in all reality after talking with many folks I found that they really didn’t end up using the whirlpool tubs that much anymore. Maybe for the first couple of years and then never really seem to use them after that.
So if you love your whirlpool tub and you use it. Keep it! But you don’t like it, let’s take it out and convert that area into a more practical and functional space.
And how can this be achieved? What about making that area into a larger shower, or you're looking to incorporate the new shower heads available, such as rain shower heads or multiple shower heads that some call them as body sprayers.
What a great thing to come home to at the end of a long day.
You need to also consider too, that your needs over the next few years might change and you’ll need to have easier access both in and out of your shower area. You might be looking for a built in seat-bench with grab bars for comfort and safety. And as our population ages we're also seeing that there might be an additional caregiver in the home to assist in the individuals bathing needs.
I think that the walk-in shower is something that we will see standard in many homes to come and will be here for a long time. As found on Youtube

Walk In Shower Enclosure Ideas
Our third video of Walk In Shower ideas follows below.
Most of the large multi-million modern homes in the UK, have a walk in shower enclosure, primarily because it is consistent with modern bathroom designs.
If you are thinking of possible redoing one or all of your bathrooms and adding a little twist to their plain and boring designs, you might also want to toss in a new walk in shower enclosure to the mix. Why get a shower enclosure? If you are prone to slipping, sliding, and getting injured in your own bathroom because of the constant water spillage on the floor, you should consider getting one because it keeps the water inside the enclosure and you can line the sides with absorbent mats for good measure.
You can put the shower enclosure in almost any room regardless if they are full on bathroom with toilets or not.
A walk in shower enclosure can be installed anywhere, as long as there is proper plumbing. It can save you a lot of space in the bathroom, depending on the size of the enclosure. There are also slight disadvantages that you should look into, like the fact that while it is true that a shower enclosure can save you space, it can also be a waste of space. If your bathrooms are already crowded to begin with, it is not wise to have an enclosure installed because it does take up space.
Once it gets installed, it is pretty permanent so when there are problems with the plumbing or anything relating to waterworks, you might experience a lot of inconvenience. You have to make sure that it is installed and checked by professionals to ensure safety of use. It will cost you a chunk of money to buy one and get it installed. Although, it is also possible that can save some money because there are cheap ones for sale in depots and even online.
The main point of having a shower enclosure in your home is to incorporate style and functionality, so you have to figure out if it qualifies under any of the two, to make it worth the money you will spend. As found on Youtube

Old Walk In Shower Designs Versus the New
Design was the last thing on the minds of those who built the walk-in showers of yesteryear. The utilitarian shower stall was cramped, claustrophobic, and dark. The typical tile walk in shower included a basic shower faucet and a soap shelf with little or no space for shampoo or conditioners. The shower was a place to get in, get clean, and get out. Period.
Fortunately, walk-in shower design has come a long way. Modern showers are open, bright, and full of convenient features. Good shower design considers space, comfort, flexibility, safety, and convenience. A shower should be an oasis with a spa-like feel that calms and relaxes. via legacyremodeling
How Glass Allows Light and Depth into an Otherwise Small Bathing Space
Glass screens are a unique art form and can separate space and sound without being intrusive or minimising. Glass screens have always been used to separate rooms from one another, but in recent years, with all the advances in glass hardware and glass tempering, these design miracles have made their way into the bathing space as shower screens. While keeping the water out, glass allows light and depth into an otherwise small bathing space.
The typical size for a glass shower screen is 36" wide by 72" tall. The availability of different glass types offers the convenience of choosing the separation and even the color that denotes the space. Choose between clear glass, frosted glass, rain glass, or even the clear, low-iron glass, which produces unsurpassed clarity that can only be matched by HD quality. via bellabathrooms
