The main components of a house that sell it are its kitchen and bathrooms, so don't be afraid to go big and build your dream bathroom.

    Think of your prospective buyers

    If your prospective buyers are older, they may be looking for a house without a tub as tubs can sometimes be harder to move around and could cause accidents. These buyers would be much more pleased with having a walk-In shower which has a bench than a bathtub.

    What’s a good size for a walk-in shower?

    The minimum size recommended is probably 36 by 36 inches, but having a bigger shower space is always better. Having a larger walk-In shower will grant you the space needed to instal a bench for easier showering, or build shelves for your toiletries. The larger space could also grant you the freedom to have a rain shower or other such commodities.

    Spend a little on your bathroom

    The bathroom of a house could very well sell it to prospective buyers, so don’t shy about spending a little bit more in order to get the perfect bathroom for you. Having a larger walk-in shower will make your bathroom look and feel a lot more classy and expensive. This extra space could also be used to install a steam shower.

    High end showers are everything

    High-end walk-In showers add a lot more value to your house, especially when the bathrooms of the house are shower only. High-end showers may include features like rain shower heads, grab bars, shower seats, and multiple shower heads located on different parts of the shower wall to give you a more refined and exquisite showering experience.

    What is the best material for a walk-In shower?

    There are many different materials you can use for your walk-In shower but one of the best and most common materials used is acrylic. Acrylic is extremely low maintenance while looking fantastic, the material is generally cut into one large piece that will accurately fit into your whole shower wall. The sheet installation process is for shower walls and not tiles. Acrylic will leave you a glossy finish and has many prints to choose from.

    Glass tiles are a unique material to look out for

    hey are fitted into your bathroom as tiles and tend to be translucent. These tiles aren’t as common but will give your bathroom an extra shine. They come as small tiles that are fit together in a pattern to create the base of your walk-in shower wall. Glass tiles do tend to be expensive and brittle, so keep that in mind when deciding whether it's the choice for your bathroom.

    Other materials for walk-in showers

    There are two other materials that are used in walk-in showers but aren't as common. One of them is Stone Tile. They look similar to marble tiling and are similar to granite in appearance but they can be really expensive and hard to clean. The other material which isn't so widely used in modern showers is Ceramic. Ceramic looks a little like porcelain and may cause your bathroom to look a little different than traditional tile but they are inexpensive and more resistant to stain, the negative being that the installation process is complex and the material itself looks out of fashion.
