5 Reasons to Upgrade to a Walk-in Shower
You can’t watch a home renovation show without seeing a walk-in shower feature. They’re modern and add a custom touch to a bathroom, so it’s no surprise that they’re at the top of the renovation list for many homeowners.
The reasons to upgrade your master bath with an elegant walk-in shower are endless, but we’ve rounded up our top five benefits of these luxurious modern home additions. Whether you’re looking for better accessibility in your master bath or a more modern aesthetic in a small guest bath, you can’t go wrong with a custom walk-in shower from All States Home Improvement. Read on to learn more!
- Better Accessibility
Bathing is often the most relaxing part of our days. However, it is often less than rejuvenating for those with mobility issues if they are forced to bathe in a shower/tub combo. While many homes are equipped with traditional shower/bath combos because of their versatility, the top of the tub is typically nearly two feet off the ground, making them problematic for people with limited mobility. Difficulty maneuvering in and out of the tub, combined with wet surfaces, can make bathing extremely dangerous for this segment of the population.
The most common update for an accessible bathroom is converting a shower/tub combo to a walk-in shower. These showers are built to be easy to walk or roll into, so the chances for tripping are minimal. Therefore, if you or someone in your home is looking for a more accessible bathroom, a walk-in shower is a good place to start. Read this blog about converting your bathroom for better accessibility for more information on how to improve your bathroom’s accessibility features.
- Resale Value
When placed in the right room, a walk-in shower will increase the value of your home. They make smaller bathrooms look bigger and leave room for more features in a small guest bath (see more about that in reason five!). Keep in mind, however, that you may want to keep at least one bathtub in one bathroom in your home to keep resale value high for buyers with children, who will likely want at least one bath for bathing their kiddos.
Modern, functional, and versatile are three words that perfectly describe walk-in showers. No matter your design aesthetic, the team at All States Home Improvement will design a beautiful shower to fit your space. Your consultant will share a wide variety of colors and designs to fit your style from traditional, to elegant to farmhouse. And don’t forget the accessories!

- Easier to Clean & Durable
All States bath products are made of non-porous acrylic panels for the most durable and easy to maintain option on the market. No tile or grout to clean or maintain, no mold or mildew and our shower panels have an antimicrobial surface that stops the growth of bacteria. Cleaning your custom walk-in shower will be much quicker and easier. No tile, grout or porous porcelain surfaces that hold in grime and bacteria. Additionally, because our walk-in shower consists of flat surfaces, with reinforced corners – there are fewer nooks and crannies to catch buildup, slashing your cleaning time.
- Conserve Space
Walk-in showers are built to fit the room, so you don’t have to work with standard size templates. Therefore, you can add a shower to a room that couldn’t hold a shower/tub combo. Another option is to replace a combo unit with a smaller walk-in shower to create space for a nice vanity area in your bathroom! Completing your new walk-in shower with a frameless shower door or an elegant glass wall will make the room appear larger than it is, adding value to your home.
