Walk In Shower Design Trend 2017
Walk In Shower Design Trend 2017 – Walk in showers are the most wanted trend in bathroom decorating last few years. They’re sleek, contemporary, and practically maintenance-free and right now they’re more affordable than ever. Here are not one but six compelling reasons why you are falling in love with the walk in shower.
1. Walk in showers lend an air of luxury to the morning routine
And luxury is what today’s bathroom is all about. No longer is the bath being thought of as simply the place to take care of routine, mundane business. It’s now the place to go for pampering. With a walk-in shower as the centerpiece of the bath, it’ll be easier than ever to find coordinating fixtures no matter what your decorating style.
You can accessorize to your heart’s content with stainless steel, brushed nickel, silver or chrome taps, wall-mounted mirrors, luxuriously absorbent towels, aromatherapy candles and more. You’re in total charge of creating the type of escape you long for; one that’s functional but best of all, one that’s reminiscent of the 5-star accommodations at your favorite holiday hide-away.
2. Walk in showers allow room for showering with a mate
Take a moment to let your mind wander here and just imagine the possibilities. Go ahead, be adventurous. What a great way to break out of the bedroom rut and add a bit of excitement to your life! And if those kinds of thoughts are too much for your innocent mind, just think about the water you’ll conserve when showering together. You’ll be doing your part for the environment while at the same time you can be setting the stage for lots of exciting things to come.
3. Walk in showers raise the resale value of your home
When it comes to a home’s value, you’ll almost always get the maximum return on your investment when you update the kitchen and the bathroom. A frameless, clear-glass walk in shower will instantly update the look of any bathroom, no matter how old. Walk in showers create a more spacious environment, which is a terrific benefit especially when space is already limited. This popular look is trendy yet timeless meaning you won’t have to worry about the money you invest – the walk-in shower you install today will look good even 10 years from now!
4. Walk in showers are easier to clean
You won’t have to spend another moment inhaling harsh chemicals while laboriously attempting to remove built-up mold and mildew from shower curtains and doors. Simply wipe down the glass when you’re finished and you’re done. You’re busy enough already so anything that helps cut cleaning time is a blessing. You’ll likely be even more inclined to keep the walk-in shower area clean so that you’re assured a crystal-clear view of what’s waiting for you on the other side.
5. Walk in showers are easier for the old and young to use
When you install a wet floor shower, you won’t have to step over any raised edges to get inside which greatly increases mobility. The safety aspect alone is the deciding factor for many. The addition of a seat and a flexible hose with hand-held showerhead means that showering will no longer be an unbearable task. Children love walk in showers, too. And guess what? The more they enjoy taking a shower, the more inclined they’ll be to do it!
6. Walk in showers are easy to retrofit into an existing bath area
Installation is possible (and not that difficult) even on out of true walls. Walk in showers can be installed in any recessed area or in any corner. With easy-to-follow instructions included with every walk in shower, do-it-yourselfers can handle most installations without hiring a contractor.
You also have to consider the floor and wall design for your walk in shower. Ceramic, stone and glass tiles are popular because they are waterproof. If you plan to have a solid wall as part of your walk in shower, use a neutral tile color that maintains the airiness of the bathroom.
One area where you can create a unique style is the back wall, which you can use as the focus of your walk in shower and bathroom as a whole. For instance, a nice stone mosaic back wall draws your attention to it immediately you set foot into the shower.
