Installing a walk-in shower with an integrated has many practical advantages. But is it really worth the cost?
It’s normal to hear and talk about our physical health; things like eating five-a-day, taking regular exercise, drinking plenty of water and avoiding too much alcohol and sugar. We know the rules, more or less.
It’s far less common to think and talk about our emotional state. But not only are the two linked, with poor mental health negatively impacting on the body, feeling good about ourselves can help us to lead better and happier lives.
The brief moments we have to ourselves during the day are an important part of this. Your morning shower, for example, might be a chance to check in on how your mind and body are feeling. Or your evening bath might provide the ‘me-time’ you crave at the end of the day – somewhere you can go to switch off, boost your mood or perfect your singing.
Many people miss out on this opportunity by not feeling totally safe and relaxed in their bathroom. We want to highlight a type of shower that could transform your experience. Here’s why you won’t regret investing in a walk-in shower with an integrated bench.
1. Safer bathing
Showers can easily become slippery, with approximately 81% of bathroom injuries occurring due to slips and falls. Adding a built-in bench to your walk-in shower will make it easier to rest while washing, so you can fully enjoy that time to yourself while dramatically reducing the risk of falling over.
2. Makes washing easier
Sometimes when you’re having a shower it’s tough to scrub those tough-to-reach areas, especially when there’s a risk of slipping. Having a bench in your shower means that you can sit down comfortably and wash without the need to try and balance. This allows you to go at your own pace, enjoy the warmth of the water and relax.
3. Space for storage
A built-in bench also acts as a useful place to store your products. You won’t have to worry about remembering to bring in your shampoo from the cupboard or reach to grab it from an awkward spot in the shower. All your most-used products can be right where you need them. And they won’t take up all the room, as the bench in our Countess walk-in shower is long enough to accommodate you, too.
4. A stylish touch
Our experts will ensure your new walk-in shower doesn’t look out of place in your home. The bench integrates seamlessly with the rest of the design, and you’ll be able to tailor the tiling, walls and floor to match your personal taste.
5. A long-term investment
If you don’t have any immediate concerns about the safety of your bathroom but are interested in investing for the future, then a walk-in shower with a bench is the perfect choice. Contemporary and discreet, you can use it when you need it. What’s more, all our walk-in showers come with a product warranty of up to 15 years for added peace of mind.
