Why Walk In Showers Have Become So Popular

Walk In Showers

Walk In Showers have become a popular commodity in any home, but why? Let’s take a look at why people are opting to get rid of their bathtub with bathtub to shower conversions, and going with a walk in shower instead.


Most people these days don’t use their bathtub. People live busy lives, and don’t have time to wait for their bathtub to fill up and fully relax in it. This is where walk in showers come in. Walk In Showers allow you to bathe quickly, and get on with your day.

If you have kids, a bathtub might be beneficial for bathing them, but for traditional bathing, most people now prefer to shower.


Most traditional bathtubs are anything but safe. They offer a tripping hazard in a wet slippery environment as one tries to enter. Furthermore, trying to stand and walk around on a slippery, curvy floor doesn’t bode well while trying to shower. For this reason, people are opting to have a Walk In Shower installed with a flat, nonslip floor that’s easy to step into.

Hot Weather

If you live in hot environments like Phoenix, Arizona, a hot bath doesn’t sound very appealing. Sitting in 100 degree water, soaking and sweating just isn’t that comfortable. It’s much nicer to stand in a nice cool shower after a scorching hot day.

Design & Asthetics

Traditional tubs have hit their limit with what you can do with them. Most practical options leave you with a mismatching white or beige tub paired with a surround. Walk In Showers can be customized in an endless array of designs that will fit well with any home’s decor. 

Walk In Showers have a variety of benefits that will allow your bathroom to function well for you. Whatever the reason you decide to go with a Walk In Shower, be sure to go with a reputable accessibility contractor, that understands your needs and can install your shower the right way. If it’s not installed the right way, your shower may leak, or not drain properly. 

Good luck with your next home accessibility project. If you’re looking for an accessibility contractor in Arizona, be sure to check out Independence Home Remodeling.
