Shower/Tub Combo or Walk-In Shower? Choosing the Right Option for Your Needs

May 30, 2024

Are you planning to remodel your bathroom and struggling to choose between a traditional shower/tub combo or a more modern walk-in shower? If you’re someone who prefers showers over baths and you’re hoping to upgrade your bathing experience, understanding the pros and cons of each type of shower is crucial if you want to make a decision that suits your lifestyle, safety needs, and aesthetic preferences.

Safety Concerns With Shower/Tub Combos

While shower/tub combos have been a staple in homes for decades, they come with inherent safety risks, especially for those with mobility issues or plans to age in place. The need to step over a high tub wall can pose a significant risk of slips and falls. This threat is compounded by the often-slippery surfaces found in traditional bathtubs. For families with elderly members or those with limited mobility, a shower/tub combo may not be the safest choice.

The Advantages of Walk-In Showers

Walk-in showers offer several benefits over traditional shower/tub combos, particularly for those looking to create a safer and more accessible bathroom environment. Here are some key advantages:

  • Ease of access – Walk-in showers eliminate the need to step over a high threshold, making entry and exit safer and easier.
  • Aesthetic appeal – Without the clunky appearance of a tub wall, walk-in showers provide a sleek, streamlined look that can make your bathroom feel more spacious and luxurious. They also eliminate the need for a hanging shower curtain, which can enhance the overall cleanliness and modern feel of the space.
  • Customization options – Walk-in showers can be customized with a variety of wall designs, glass doors, and layouts to fit any bathroom design.
