Walk-in showers are much easier to clean as the shower screens are usually semi-frameless or frameless. These don’t hold onto grime and dirt the same way other shower screens do. Walk-in showers also only consist of one glass shower screen, resulting in fewer surfaces to clean.

The incredible versatility of walk-in shower screens means they can suit your space without the struggle of placing a typical shower into an area that may be too small. They are also a perfect option for smaller bathrooms as they open up the bathroom space with their minimalistic and sleek design.

Walk-in showers work perfectly with contemporary styled bathrooms. They offer an open and straight design, lacking fancy decorative features, making them perfect for a minimalistic look. They are incredibly versatile as you can emphasise the modern style of your shower with geometrical shape choices like square showerheads. Straight lines and right angles offer a sharp, minimal and contemporary design.

Walk-in shower screens and showers also allow you to experiment with different shaped tiles and colours, as the openness of the design permits you to see inside of the shower.

You can still design a traditional bathroom with a walk-in shower screen. If you want to accentuate a ‘traditional’ bathroom design, you should let certain features shine within the space, such as the water pipes. It is also recommended to use traditional hardware to emphasis your decor’s style, and add retro items such as posters. You can transfer your traditional ideas within the tile choices, decor and fixtures, allowing you to execute the design of your dreams.

Walk-in showers are the perfect choice for industrial themed bathrooms, as industrial spaces tend to be open and revealing.
