Walk-in showers are a modern solution for those who have difficulty bathing – because losing mobility shouldn’t mean losing your independence.
But why should you consider a walk-in shower? Bathing Solutions offers a range of high-quality options that are both practical and stylish to suit your individual needs.
We’ve rounded up the most common asked customer questions to help you find your next step towards a safer bathing experience.
What is a walk-in shower?
A walk-in shower is specially designed for individuals with mobility issues, such as instability, or individuals with disabilities. Our walk-in showers have ultra-low-level access, designed to make it easier to get in and out of the shower without tripping all falling over a high threshold. These can be open access, or feature sliding or hinged doors to prevent splashing.
How does a walk-in shower work?
Bathing can cause difficulties for any individuals with disabilities or ageing mobility Issues, making showers potentially more hazardous and time-consuming and baths impossible to get in and out of. Our low-level trays and slip-resistant design significantly reduce the risks of slips and falls when entering or exiting the shower, so you can continue to bathe with confidence.
How does a walk-in shower compare to a regular shower?
The greatest difference between a walk-in shower and a regular shower is the removal of access obstacles. In other words, you don’t need to climb over a high step to enter the shower.
Each Bathing Solutions walk-in shower comes with the option of a full-height shower panels, or half-height doors which can allow easy wheelchair access or access for care assistance.
However, the practical features do not mean that you must compromise on style. Our extensive range of walk-in showers are available in a number of modern designs, meaning you can enjoy bathing in luxury in the safety of your own home.
A folding seat, or an integrated shower seat, can further ensure your comfort when bathing. Seen in our Countess walk-in shower design, the integrated shower seat also acts as a shelf to store common bathroom products, like shampoos and conditioners, at a comfortable height. Grab-bars are also a great addition for any individuals who may need extra stability and support while showering.
Our walk-in shower designs, such as The Aquarius, are custom-built to your needs. We consider the space available in your bathroom, and tailor your bathroom design to your specific requirements. For instance, we ensure your bathroom installation is level to maximise the ease of use for any individuals who require a wheelchair.
What are the benefits of a walk-in shower?
Bathing is about far more than cleanliness, it is also a way to refresh, revive and relax. So, if you’ve started to struggle when showering independently and have consequently started to lose confidence and enjoyment, a walk-in shower could be the start of a new journey back to independence – all in the safety of your own home. The easy access options and range of additional comfort and safety features, mean you can be sure to find the right bathing solution for you.
