If you lack mobility due to old age or disability, or even care for an elderly or disabled friend or relative, the shower can pose a challenge on a daily basis. Perhaps you are struggling to get in or out of your existing shower. Or maybe you need a more accessible space for your changing needs. Either way, walk in showers provide the perfect solution. Read on to discover our top 7 reasons why your bathroom needs a walk in shower:
1. Shower Safely Once More
Let’s begin with one of the most important reasons why your bathroom should feature a walk in shower- your safety.
A walk in shower is designed to provide the ultimate safety when showering, with a number of helpful safety features as standard:
Key Safety features of Assistive Bathing Walk-in Showers:
- Low level Safe Access
No more awkwardly stepping over dangerous steps. Walk in showers have low level easy access so you can finally step in and out of the shower with ease.
- Slip Resistant Tray
For your complete peace of mind when showering, Assistive Bathing walk in showers feature a slip resistant tray which works in both wet and dry conditions.
- Secure Shower Grab Handle Rail
Grab handle rails are perfect for providing stability and that extra bit of support as you manoeuvre around your walk in shower.
- Convenient Shower Seat
For those with mobility issues, standing for a shower may be a bit of a struggle. With an inbuilt shower seat you can conveniently take the weight off your feet to enjoy a shower at your own pace. Its also perfect to sit on while washing your hair and feet.
- Height Adjustable Shower Head
Adjust the position of the shower head to suit you, no more awkward stretching. With 5 spray settings for comfortable showering.
2. Increased Independence
Independence is something we all value and, if you have limited mobility, adapting your shower to improve your accessibility can help to make day to day life easier and safer.
As discussed above, walk in showers provide a number of ways to increase your safety when showering. All of these factors combined mean that you can enjoy increased independence when getting in and out of the shower, without having to rely on anybody else.
Top tip: A wet room is an excellent option to increase independence. With a wet room, the entire room is waterproofed, with a slightly sloped floor to allow water to drain. This creates a walk-in shower area that has no steps to worry about. This is perfect for wheelchair users or those who require mobility aids when showering.
3. Create a Luxury Space You’ll Love To Relax In
Just imagine designing a space that is not only luxurious but the ultimate answer to your showering difficulties…We’re thinking stylish floor to ceiling glass doors, opulent marble wall surfaces and glamorous bathroom accessories to match. Just because you need some extra support around your bathroom, doesn’t mean you should compromise on its style!
Whether you need more space when showering or you want to create a safer environment, a walk-in shower is a perfect design. At Assistive Bathing you can choose from a variety of stylish walk in showers to suit your needs and your budget. Regardless of the size of your bathroom, we can customise the design to suit your bathroom, style and needs. No compromise needed.

Our walk-in showers come with a number of safety features as standard, giving you and your loved one’s extra peace of mind when you shower.
6. Walk in Showers Are Easy to Clean
A recent study has found that we spend up to 5 hours per week cleaning.
When you have mobility problems cleaning a shower can be difficult, so having a walk in shower that is easy to keep clean is an important, but sometimes overlooked advantage.
