Pros and Cons of a Spa Shower

Have you been daydreaming about the perfect spa shower? Maybe your Pinterest is filled with pictures of walk-in showers. If you are thinking of upgrading your shower, here is what you need to know!


Pros of having a Spa Shower


I think everyone can agree that a spa shower is the height of luxury. They are aesthetically pleasing and add value to your home.


More space

Spa and walk-in showers have much more space than your conventional showers. A spa shower also gives the illusion of a larger bathroom by “opening” the shower.


Health Benefits

Steam has many health benefits. Having a spa or steam shower can reduce stress and tension. It also can provide relief from sinus pressure. Steaming also opens yours pores and can help eliminate impurities.



Shower curtains and liners are a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Glass and tile are much easier to keep clean and mildew free.



Less privacy

A spa shower usually entails having a shower glass wall and door. This can create a lack of privacy. If you are worried about being seen in the shower opt for a frosted shower glass.


More water usage

Spa showers are relaxing and calming. It would only make sense that you would want to spend more time in it. Spending excess amount of time in the shower could potentially increase your water bill.


A spa shower is a great addition to a bathroom. Even though there are some cons to having such a luxurious shower, having the proper design and materials can minimize its flaws. Whether it is choosing the type of glass that works best for you or installing a water saving shower head. Having the proper professional also makes a world of difference too.
