Walk-In Showers

Walk-in showers have gained popularity for their contemporary design, accessibility features, and versatility in accommodating various preferences and needs. Whether you're looking to create a more accessible bathroom or simply want a modern and open shower space, a walk-in shower can be a stylish and practical choice.

A walk-in shower, or mobility shower, is simply a shower that you can enter without having to step over a high tray or threshold. Walk-in showers often have fewer hazards than traditional showers because of this factor.

They are very popular with people who have limited mobility, whether this is because of old age or low mobility in general, due to this ease of access and the various features they have to make the bathing experience safer and more relaxing.


Why Choose a Walk-In Shower

A walk-in shower is a type of shower that does not have a traditional bathtub and typically features a curbless or low-threshold entry, allowing you to walk directly into the shower space without having to step over a barrier. These showers are known for their accessibility, modern design, and versatility. Here are some key features and considerations related to walk-in showers:

Curbless Design: Walk-in showers usually have a curbless or low-threshold entry, making them easily accessible for people with mobility issues or those who prefer a seamless transition into the shower.

Open and Spacious: Walk-in showers often provide a more open and spacious feel compared to traditional shower and tub combinations. This can make your bathroom appear larger and more contemporary.

Design Options: Walk-in showers come in various designs and styles, allowing for customisation to suit your preferences and bathroom aesthetics. You can choose different materials for the walls and floor, as well as various types of glass enclosures.

Accessibility: The lack of a step or curb makes walk-in showers accessible for individuals with mobility challenges, such as seniors or those with disabilities. They can also be equipped with features like grab bars and built-in seating to enhance safety.

Installing Your Walk-In Shower

Tile Options: Tiling is a common choice for walk-in shower floors and walls. There are various tile options available, ranging from ceramic and porcelain to natural stone, allowing you to achieve the desired look and feel.

Ventilation: Adequate ventilation is important in any shower area to prevent mold and mildew. Consider incorporating proper ventilation solutions, such as exhaust fans or windows, in your walk-in shower design.

Customisation: Walk-in showers can be customised to fit different spaces, whether you have a small bathroom or a larger area. This flexibility makes them a popular choice for bathroom renovations and new construction.

Professional Installation: Proper installation is crucial for the functionality and durability of a walk-in shower. It's often recommended to hire professionals for installation to ensure that waterproofing, drainage, and other essential elements are properly addressed.


What are the benefits of a walk-in shower?

Walk-in showers bring many benefits for people, whether they have limited mobility or not.

The first is that the ultra-low threshold makes entering and exiting the shower enclosure much easier and safer. Walk-in showers with no threshold whatsoever, which are effectively wet rooms, also allow wheelchair entry and exit, making them even more accessible. Some of the features that they have include:

  • Seats that fold if you want to sit down for your showering
  • Support handrails
  • Non-slip flooring for added safety
  • Easy temperature control system
  • Enclosures that are very easy to clean

How much space does a walk-in shower need?

The space required for a mobility walk-in shower will depend on the size of the shower and any additional features, such as a bench or grab bars, but we normally suggest 1.8m x 1.8m. Enough space is required so that users can enter and exit safely.

Walk-in showers are often seen as a luxurious and modern feature that can increase the appeal of a home.
