Walk in shower enclosures

Personally, I’m a big advocate of walk in shower enclosures. I’d really like to see them replacing every other type of shower enclosure in the near future; they’re just so much more convenient!
Consider this: could there be anything more annoying in the bathroom than that little area underneath the door that you can never reach with a cloth and that always develops mold! Some shower enclosures have these little ledges all the way around that you can never properly get into. I’m not an absolute clean-freak or anything, but it really does annoy me to be able to see mold as I’m showering. It just feels unhygienic. With a walk in shower enclosure there are only clean lines that are easy to clean and don’t have the same tendency to develop mold in the first place, as water doesn’t have anywhere to puddle.
I also find that many shower trays aren’t really properly designed to allow all of the water to drain out. More often than not, there is always a little bit left over lying in the tray. Again, this is unhygienic and the stagnant water encourages the shower tray to develop mold. I also absolutely hate the process of having to clean a shower tray. It always seems to involve getting down on your hands and knees and scrubbing it. With walk in shower enclosures, you simply clean the floor of your shower the way you do the rest of your floor; probably with a mop, and comfortably standing up. Because the floor slopes down to the drain, all of the water handily drains out.
Having to step in and out of the shower is also an irritating, because I find that I’m forever stubbing my toe on the edge of the shower or tripping over my own towel and falling out. Maybe I’m particularly clumsy, but I can’t be the only person who finds that a little inconvenient. Again, with a walk in shower enclosure you avoid this problem. The other great thing is that you don’t have to actually get out of the shower to dry yourself, which means you don’t have to soak the rest of the bathroom while you’re doing it. You simply turn the water off and grab your towel. With the normal shower enclosure you’d have to turn the water off, open the door and then scramble in an undignified manner to get your towel while trying not to drip all over the rest of the floor.
If I find all of this inconvenient, I can only imagine any family with young children or elderly people would find it doubly as inconvenient. I can’t imagine attempting to bathe a young child in a shower enclosure; you’d have to leave the door open and soak yourself and most of the floor in the process. I imagine it would probably be easier to try and wash your children in the basin! For the elderly, it’s even more inconvenient to think of having to bend down and scrub all those little moldy areas.
Overall, it’s just so much easier to choose a walk in shower enclosure, and they just so happen to look great too. They are, without a doubt, the best type of shower enclosure.
