What is a Walk-In Shower?

A walk-in shower eliminates doors, curtains, and high bathtub walls. You simply step directly into the shower area over a low or flush threshold. This creates a seamless transition without obstacles to navigate.

Key features of walk-in showers include:

  • No doors or curtains to maneuver
  • Open entry for easy access
  • Ultra-low or no threshold at all
  • More open floor space than traditional showers
  • Grab bars and seating options

With no glass doors or shower curtains, walk-in showers offer unobstructed and safe access. The low threshold is designed to be wheelchair accessible as well. Plus, the open floorplan creates a spacious feeling without cramped quarters.

For those with mobility challenges or who want a convenient option as they age, walk-in showers provide independence and security. No more climbing over high walls or getting tangled in shower liners.
