Your guide to walk-in showers

So, you’re considering a bathroom remodel…

What an exciting time! First up, you need to decide which features are most important to you. Many of our customers opt for a walk-in shower, which is a great choice to refresh the look of a bathroom and maximize space.

Use this blog post as your comprehensive guide to walk-in showers to see if it’s the right choice for your home.

What is a walk-in shower?

Unline tub and shower combinations, walk-in showers are easy to enter with a low threshold, as seen in the photo at the top of this post. The clean, open look of these showers can make your whole bathroom look and feel bigger than it actually is.

The low-threshold entry is also ideal for family members with limited mobility, making a walk-in shower a versatile option for your home.

Why choose a walk-in shower?


When was the last time you took a long soak in your bathtub? If it’s been a while, a walk-in shower may make more sense for your needs.

Many of our customers come to us complaining that they have an old, outdated bathtub that is rarely used. In those cases, we recommend a walk-in shower to make their space more functional.

However, if you have small children, remember that it’s typically easier to bathe them in a bathtub. If you only have one bathtub in your home, we recommend waiting to convert it to a walk-in shower until your children are older.


As we mentioned above, if you or one of your family members has limited mobility, a walk-in shower can be a much safer bathing option for your home.

Or, if you are getting older and plan to stay in your home for the long-term, you may want to get a walk-in shower now, so that if you develop mobility issues down the road, you will already be set up with a bathing area that fits your needs.

Once you decide that a walk-in shower is right for your home, look no further than Herl’s Bath & Tile Solutions to get the job done right! We install beautiful acrylic showers in a variety of colors and styles that can be customized with safety features like built-in seating options and grab bars.

We love acrylic (and you will too!) because it’s one of the most durable materials available and it is guaranteed not to chip, peel, crack, or fade over time. It’s also easy to keep clean and highly resistant to mold and mildew, so you can spend more time enjoying your shower and less time scrubbing it.
