Benefits of Jacuzzi® Walk-In Showers
When you think of trending bathroom designs, a walk-in shower is likely one of the first things to come to mind. These systems are sleek, seamless, and complement virtually every interior design concept—making them a coveted upgrade that has withstood the test of time. But the benefits don’t stop there, especially when you look at the luxurious walk-in shower systems manufactured by the bathroom-remodeling leaders at Jacuzzi. In this article, we’re taking a closer look at these benefits, starting with an in-depth analysis of the anatomy of walk-in showers.
What Is a Walk-In Shower?
Simply put, walk-in showers are standalone shower systems. Some models may be completely free of doors or curtains, but whether they are completely or partially open doesn’t impact the fact that they are designed so that you can literally walk into them. This streamlined look is not only aesthetically pleasing but extremely functional, not to mention low maintenance.
Is A Walk-In Shower Right for You?
While walk-in showers can be a valuable investment for anyone, they are particularly beneficial for homeowners who are looking for an aging-in-place compliant upgrade or who simply want a more accessible shower system. Let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of walk-in showers:
One of the biggest pros of walk-in shower systems is their universal design! Jacuzzi® walk-in showers are no exception, as they can be customized in a wide range of styles, colors, textures, and patterns. That said, walk-in showers are especially favored in smaller bathrooms, as they create the illusion of more floor space which can make tiny bathrooms feel bigger. This design trick can be seen in several trending bathroom layouts.
In addition to aesthetic appeal, walk-in showers are also coveted for their accessibility. We briefly touched on this earlier, but its value cannot be overstated. Because they are void of high tub ledges, walk-in showers are extremely easy to enter and exit. Jacuzzi® walk-in showers go a step further; they feature:
- An antimicrobial surface layer with embedded silver ions that protects against bacteria growth
- A high-density PVC core and two layers of aluminum backing for a scratch-, impact-, and UV-resistant profile
- Nonporous acrylic walls that are designed to be exceptionally durable
- Low-threshold and barrier-free entry options with a slip-resistant texture
They can also be personalized with bathroom safety products and accessories, such as customizable grab bar placements, in-shower seating, moveable shower heads.
There really aren’t any cons to installing a walk-in shower. Although, some homeowners may find that they want to keep at least one bathtub in their homes for the benefit. For example, homeowners with small pets or growing families may want a tub for grooming or bathtime routines.
