Space might not necessarily be in your favour but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have the bathroom that you need, it may need updating to suit your life and health now and in the future. What do we mean by this? Well, if you like the idea of having a sense of luxury and easy access in your bathroom but don’t necessarily have an abundance of space, hope isn’t necessarily lost.
With this in mind, we answer the question, can you have a walk-in shower with a smaller bathroom and how can you do so, without compromising on space.
When space is limited in your bathroom, you can opt to having a door on your walk-in shower, in fact, this is a common choice for many people. This is a factor that can help the space feel a little more spacious and comfortable. A fixed glass panel can act as a divider between the shower and the rest of your bathroom.
Utilising a wall-mounted or pedestal sink is an excellent way to open additional room for a walk-in shower. A partial wall can separate a walk-in shower from your sink. If you opt for a mounted sink rather than a full vanity area, you are granting space for any other bathroom items that can be tucked behind the sink, as well as using hooks to hang items too!
If you can, positioning your walk-in shower close to a window or skylight if you have one is an effective way to optimise natural daylight and in turn, make the space appear larger than it is. If you do opt for a shower door, we’d certainly advise a glass door so you can allow natural light to permeate the space. In addition to this, the shower becomes a separate space that doesn’t clutter your bathroom or impede the space.
Waking up to a refreshing shower is one of life’s true pleasures. However, for individuals with limited mobility or a disability, taking a shower can become a much more difficult task. Many traditional shower installations don’t offer the accessibility required for people with restricted mobility, and what should be a standard routine can become a challenge.
