Do you like showers without doors? It is possible that you have ever considered installing one of them in your bathroom, but perhaps you have not stopped for a moment to think. Is it really convenient?
In this sense, below are some advantages, but also certain disadvantages that come with the use of showers without doors.
Advantages of showers without doors or without a sidewalk
The most obvious advantage of having a walk-in shower is that it is luxurious. A shower without a door can bring a modern and luxurious look to your bathroom.
Leaving the glass door can significantly reduce the cost of installation. However, a walk-in shower without curbs is often more expensive due to the special drain and tile work required to create the curb-free design. An option to save a little money on this option is to install the shower without a door, but with a small border or edge. This will allow you to do without the expensive special drain needed for walk-in showers.
A convenient feature of a shower without a door is that it will not conflict with the door to the bathroom. If you set it up correctly, you will avoid any conflict between the shower door and the door to the bathroom. By installing a shower without a door, you will create the illusion of more space because it can open up the structure of the room with this design and it can enhance the appearance of your bathroom .
Disadvantages of showers without doors
The downsides to a walk-in shower are mostly spatial. In a small bathroom, even with properly oriented shower heads, a sloping floor, and a perfectly designed drainage system, there will still be some splashing water on the floor.
We have built some showers that are not glass and are simply a tiled wall between the shower user and the rest of the bathroom. If your room is big enough, this can be a great option too!
Can you feel a little cold? Yes. One of the benefits of a shower stall is that it controls the air flow and keeps the heat trapped in the shower. Doorless showers do not offer the same benefits. So if you stay cold, not having a shower door could be a challenge for you.
Before deciding to build a shower without a door, be sure to weigh the pros and cons and make the right decision for your space.
