When you are remodeling your bathroom, or adding a bathroom to your home, installing a separate shower stall may just be the way to go! Separate shower stalls are becoming more and more popular and the tile options are endless.
Showers are used in an average household 2 or 3 times more daily than a bathtub. A bathtub may not even be used on a weekly basis by a single family member. The reason for this is that showers are quick and convenient, making them suitable for busy lifestyles. Most people do not have time to wait for a bathtub to fill up. Also, bathroom showers take up much less space than a bathtub. A shower enclosure is often the perfect fit when remodeling a small bathroom. Keep in mind that showers offer tremendous versatility in layout and design.
A walk-in shower is easy for children and elderly persons to use. This kind of shower construction can also be designed for wheelchair accessibility. Bathroom shower remodeling with a universal design will appeal to a wider group of buyers if and when you choose to ever sell your home.
Showers can be custom designed and built to fit your space with tiles that suit your taste. While many people prefer to have a shower over a bath, we still advise to have at least one bathtub in your home. Not having a tub may lower the value of your home or deter potential buyers.
