Decorative features to consider when installing a walk-in shower

A walk-in shower is one of the most modern and attractive additions you can make in your bathroom, but there are a lot of minor tweaks you'll have to implement before it's ready to be installed. According to Better Homes and Gardens, there are a few construction tips and bathroom accessories you should keep in mind to make the most of your new addition.

When you're installing the shower stall, be sure to include a small step in between the flooring in the room and the stall itself. This will prevent water from spilling over, and it will also increase the lifespan of the door track, as it won't be constantly submerged in water.

Inside the shower stall itself, you can give it a modern touch by incorporating a shower panel. With a rainfall faucet, swiveling water jets and a sleek design, this will give your shower a huge boost. You can also include soap dispensers, a mirror and other small accessories to improve the space's utility.

Your walk-in shower will give your bathroom a huge decorative boost that you'll enjoy for years to come. What small additions do you suggest for those installing this feature into their washrooms?
