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.

“ Hi, Bruce,
I look forward to your articles in Chevy Chase Village Life -- I love bungalows so I immediately read the article in the latest issue that arrived yesterday (as your team was here planning for the photo shoot). I also liked the Sponsor Spotlight this month -- featuring your company. Is it possible to get a reprint or link to your article on porches that appeared recently? I would love to add one to our NC beach home, but so far no one has been able to figure out how to get access from the inside to the outside! I know my sister would love to see the article too. Thanks for ALL of your amazing work. I hope you will feel free (and confident) to use us as references. The only hard part will be communicating what an outstanding job -- beyond our high expectations -- your team did for us. We are demanding, but your team is more demanding in the excellence that they deliver. ”
