Pros and Cons of a Walk-In Shower

May 04, 2021

The Pros & Cons of a Walk-In Shower Weighing the Pros and Cons of a Walk-In Shower in Your Home

Shower remodels are always a popular home improvement project since the result is a fixture that you’ll likely use every day. These days, you have plenty of options when it comes to your shower selection, with styles and designs galore. One of the most popular modern designs is the walk-in shower. They offer a sleek, contemporary look, but can be customized in nearly limitless ways to fit almost any design scheme. However, like everything, walk-in showers have some disadvantages as well. At Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel, we created this article to help you understand the pros and cons of a walk-in shower so you can decide if this trendy remodel option is right for you.

What Is a Walk-In Shower?

Before weighing the benefits of a walk-in shower, it’s important to understand what they are. Generally, a walk-in shower is one that is exceptionally easy to enter, with a low threshold or no threshold at all. Many designs lack a door, or even walls, but a walk-in shower can have many different wall and entry designs, depending on your personal preferences. However, most homeowners agree that a walk-in design should help make your shower feel open and expansive, even if it’s actually a small space.

The Pros of a Walk-In Shower

Besides the modern, attractive aesthetics and the feeling of roominess, there are other advantages to walk-in showers, including:

Resale Value

Homebuyers throughout the country have repeatedly ranked walk-in showers as one of their most sought-after features for many years, making them a smart choice if selling your home is on the horizon. And, while a walk-in shower might cost more than a traditional shower installation on average, the higher cost is often recouped when selling the home, making it a smart investment for many homeowners.

Easy Cleaning

Since walk-in showers are usually a more simplified shower compared to their traditional counterparts, cleaning them is usually a breeze. That’s even more true when homeowners choose low-maintenance options, like a Jacuzzi® shower from Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel. Our showers have been designed to require as little maintenance as possible, so you won’t have to spend your free time scrubbing it clean.

The Cons of Walk-In Shower

While they offer plenty of benefits, walk-in showers do have cons to go with their pros. Some of the negatives associated with walk-in showers include:

No More Baths

This one might seem obvious, but when you choose to remodel your bathroom with a walk-in shower, most homeowners end up losing the option to take baths. For some homeowners, no amount of attractive design or open space will replace the feeling of a relaxing bath, so consider how you’ll feel if you have to do without it.

Splash Potential

If you end up choosing a walk-in shower design that has a non-traditional door, or no door at all, you have to consider the potential for water splashing on the rest of your bathroom. That can translate to issues for many homeowners, depending on the type of flooring in your bathroom.

Have a Walk-In Shower Installed

It’s true that there are cons to a walk-in shower, but for many homeowners, these showers can utterly transform their space. If you’re interested in one, Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel can help. Contact us today to find out more about our walk-in showers and find a Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel partner near you.
