What’s not to like about the privacy one enjoys when taking a long hot shower while simultaneously singing like you just don’t care? As a matter of fact, experts have found that actually singing (also in the shower) has a positive impact on your heart rate to the point of even possibly reducing risk for heart disease.

Is it any wonder why larger walk-in showers are growing in popularity and are now actually a leading consideration for home bathroom designs?

Okay, maybe that’s a stretch. But, the truth is, when it does come to bathroom designs, walk-in showers that are doorless or no threshold are leading trends of what homeowners want and are looking for. Simply put, walk-in showers sing loudest in current bathroom design trends. Before we learn more, let’s get to know some of the various terms people use when discussing walk-in showers.

Terms Associated With Walk-in Showers

When doing research on walk-in showers, it won’t take long before one begins to see a trend in the many different terms that are being used. Here are 3 of many terms used when discussing walk-in showers:

Doorless Shower

A doorless shower is also known as a walk-in shower. The shower itself is designed in such a way as to not require a door or a curtain.

Roll-in Shower

A roll-in shower, with its tile floor, offers a seamless transition with the floor of the bathroom, which then slopes gradually allowing for the shower to drain. The roll-in shower, with its seamless transition, is the most practical choice for those with impaired mobility.

No Threshold Shower

A no threshold shower with its curbless design seamlessly extends the bathroom’s floor directly into the shower area. The seamless extension of the floor from bathroom to shower showcases a flat and consistent bathroom surface that is no longer disrupted by the typical curbing or edging that is found around the shower.

Of course, there are many more terms that are used when looking at walk-in shower options, styles, and trends. But, are walk-in showers really a leading trend for what home owners are considering for bathroom design?
