A walk-in shower can be a wonderful replacement for your aging bathtub

As your children grow up and move out of the house, you may have an extra bathroom that you don't know what to do with. If you have more than one bathtub in the house, a wonderful method to modernize the space and improve your home's resale value is to install an elegant walk-in shower. However, the New York Times has a few tips to keep in mind before you take the plunge.

No matter what the size of your bathroom, the news source suggests utilizing a glass panel to separate the shower stall from the rest of the washroom. This will visually increase the size of the space and create a greater sense of openness.

Additionally, the other bathroom furnishings in your space will need an upgrade to match the look of the new shower. A bathroom vanity, high-efficiency toilets and linen cabinets will be wonderful additions. A shower panel is another smart buy that will add myriad features to the shower and match the room's contemporary aesthetic.

A bathroom remodeling project is a daunting task for any homeowner, but appointing the space with modern touches can revamp the room quite easily. What decorative tips do you have for those installing an all-glass shower stall?
