Did you know?

More and more homeowners are embracing a relatively new way to shower. Walk-in, or walk-behind, showers are doorless structures that are designed to give the shower a more open look.

Walk-in showers often appear larger than more traditional showers, and those that do take up more space do so to prevent water from spraying around the room.

Though walk-in showers do not have doors, they do employ a glass partition to keep water in.

Walk-in showers often give a bathroom a more modern look, but their role is more than aesthetic. In fact, many seniors find it is easier to get in and out of a walk-in shower, something that could reduce their risk of falling and suffering an injury.
