Doorless shower Design for Small bathroom
One of the most popular features homeowners ask about when planning a bathroom remodeling project is a walk-in shower without a door. This type of shower uses less space in a bathroom since there are no door swings or a frame to account for and can be adapted to your lifestyle and décor preferences.
This custom designed walk-in shower without doors features a level threshold, wall-mounted and handheld showerheads, a shower seat and a wall niche for shower supplies. A curved block-glass partition contains water and provides privacy.
A doorless walk-in shower has many advantages over traditional shower stalls. Two of the main advantages are:
- Easy maintenance. Cleaning a shower with glass doors can be a chore, especially if it has sliding doors. A doorless shower is easy to wipe down and requires minimal care of surfaces.
- Accessibility and safety. Thresholds can be an inconvenience and cause tripping particularly for family members with compromised mobility who may have difficulty using a confined shower. Glass slider doors can be also present obstacles when they stick or run off their glides. Walk-in showers without doors can alleviate these concerns and can be installed with low or level thresholds.
Here are :
1. Doorless showers are almost always custom designed.
Walk-in showers without doors can be installed in a corner or can replace a bathtub and/or existing shower. Because there is an opening to the rest of the bathroom, the walls and flooring need to be designed to contain water. The design often involves custom tile work and partitions depending on a homeowner’s needs and preferences. Tiled or waterproof walls can be floor-to-ceiling or, at a minimum, higher than the showerhead. If you plan to apply some of the principles of “universal design” in your shower project, the stall should be at least 36-by-36 inches, or optimally a minimum of 42-by-60 inches.
This no-threshold walk-in shower was designed for an individual with compromised mobility. Universal design principles were applied. There is a wide entry to the shower, a built-in shelf that accommodates the needs of the user and a shower seat.
2. When selecting a base for a walk-in shower without doors consider the options.
While there are many pre-fabricated showers and shower pans available, most will not work well for a walk-in shower without a door. Water should drain easily and not puddle on the floor.
