Walk-In Showers: Combining Luxury & Comfort

While soaking tubs are still quite popular, homeowners today are opting for more spacious, comfortable bathing options rather than compact shower areas and the traditional integrated tub/shower. Many homeowners prefer both a soaking tub and large walk-in shower stall in their master bathrooms!

Walk-In Shower

The Wentworth team has designed many bathrooms with spacious walk-in showers, and we’ve continued to see this trend throughout 2015.

What Are the Benefits of Walk-in Showers?

Whatever the style of your bathroom, a walk-in shower can complement the space and—depending on the design—add a touch of elegance or modernity. Walk-in showers are:

  • Luxurious—ideal for creating a relaxing, spa-like experience
  • Spacious with plenty of room to move around
  • Easily accessible and ideal for aging-in-place bathroom remodeling
  • Durable
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Easily customizable

The bathroom is one of the best spaces for long-term remodeling, and you’ll be able to enjoy your spacious, walk-in shower for many years. The award-winning Wentworth team can help you determine the perfect shower space for your bathroom and make sure it’s the right size, has proper drainage, etc. Design elements to consider for your new shower include:

  • Frameless glass shower door
  • Built-in bench for the ultimate comfort
  • Recessed wall niche to maximize storage and prevent a cluttered shower floor
  • Beautiful tile design
  • Features for handicaps or aging-in-place, such as curbless, roll-in stall, multiple shower heads, grab bars, non-slip tiles, and more

The Wentworth team has even designed a custom round shower stall with blue tiles and a vertical strip window with frosted glass. We have also done many walk-in showers with seats. Built-in seating and curbless shower stalls are common in age-in-place remodels.

“ I would STRONGLY recommend using Bruce Wentworth up at Chevy Chase Lake -- it's a design-build firm so you have an integrated team working for you.  We started out a kitchen-family room project with another design-build firm and it would be hard to communicate exactly how much BETTER the design that Bruce came up with was. Bruce and his team also did a project for my daughter and her husband this past fall which was amazing. ”
