With so many choices, beginning a bathroom renovation or redesign may feel intimidating. Fortunately, when it comes to choosing whether a walk-in shower or shower-tub combo is best for your space, KOHLER® LuxStone makes the process simple.

Our flexible systems can feature a low-threshold shower base for a luxurious walk-in shower or a traditional tub for a custom combination. With both options you will get the exclusive LuxStone® walls, gorgeous faucets, and timeless glass doors.

Whether you choose a walk-in shower or a custom shower-tub combo, you can customize your LuxStone walls, doors, and faucets.

You can’t go wrong with our high-quality materials and extensive design options, so focus your attention on function. We understand that your shower space is critical to your morning and evening routines, so it has to work properly for your unique lifestyle.

Is a Walk-In Shower or Shower-Tub Combo Right for You?

Match with one of these profiles to decide whether a walk-in shower or shower-tub combo is right for you!


Young Couple

Have you just moved into your first home? Consider a walk-in shower that will add value to your home should you decide to sell in the coming years. A gorgeous LuxStone shower system instantly elevates a space, making your shower an added benefit to any bathroom.

It will also improve the functionality of your space if you typically prefer a shower to a soak in the tub.

Choose from a variety of modern designs that will wow your house guests and fit your unique style!

New Family

If you’re just starting your family, your current bathroom may feel like a circus with toddlers, adults, and even pets occupying the space. It’s much easier to assist your child through bathtime in a shower-tub combo, so we suggest this option. The shallow water – and your ability to stay dry outside of the tub – makes the routine safer and cleaner. 

You’ll also appreciate our line of shower accessories to keep baby products separate from adult shampoos and body washes.

Busy Household

Once your family has grown up, you may not need the tub for bathtime anymore, but life doesn’t slow down! Now that everyone has their own shower routine, we recommend a versatile walk-in shower. This allows you to utilize the most space, and during installation, it can be custom fitted to your bathroom’s unique size and shape.

Without the sides of the tub in the way, storage accessories like the Shower Locker reach the full length of your shower wall. Enjoy four adjustable shelves, a basket, and even a cup for toothbrushes. Everyone in the family will have a dedicated space for their bottles and products.

Don’t forget to add an indulgent showerhead for a relaxing experience. Your bathroom will become an oasis, giving you a moment of peace as you start or end your day.


Empty Nesters

If you’re an empty nester, it’s time to kick back and relax. A LuxStone walk-in shower offers luxury, especially when paired with a powerful showerhead. But for optimal relaxation, we suggest choosing the shower-tub combo.

Spa features no longer exist only at resorts! You’ll love the ability to lounge and soak in a bath while maintaining the option to stand and shower. Kohler offers a Comfort Depth® bath option that features a low stepover but generous soaking depth.

If you’re considering age-in-place walk-in bath options, Kohler offers those, too.
