Bathroom projects are considered one of the most costly home upgrades. In order to save time and money for a big expense like this, homeowners should do their research, budgeting and proper planning. So if you have been contemplating getting a walk-in shower instead of a walk-in tub, you need to ensure that it will best suit your demands and needs. Your bathroom experts will share the pros and cons of the two:
Choosing Walk-in Shower
- Showers are trendy these days and they are also much more convenient as they save more space than tubs. They are also often easier to clean because there are fewer areas where water, dirt, and grime can collect.
- However, according to shower enclosures installers, this setup is a slip hazard, making it not practical for kids and even elders.
Electing Walk-in Tubs
- Most homeowners can be thrilled about getting a walk-in tub because it has a lower threshold, higher walls, a built-in seat, and a door that opens to allow the bather inside. it can also have a handrail and non-slip flooring which make it more accessible for all users, especially elders and disabled individuals. Despite its depth, professionals suggest that the amount of water used for this one is comparable to traditional ones.
- Unfortunately, you cannot pre-fill the tub and similar to a walk-in shower, it can still be pricey.
