A guide to doorless showers - read this before you buy your new shower

A guide to doorless showersIf you are looking to buy a doorless shower, then you need to read this article before spending your money. There are some very important things that you need to know first.

The first thing to consider is the amount of space that you have available. While you can find doorless shower designs in all sizes, and in many different shapes, it makes sense to know the dimensions that you are working with. This enables you to find the best design and the best shape for your bathroom.

With the dimensions in hand, you can find exactly which design will work best for your bathroom. It might make more sense to have a doorless shower without a walk-in tray. If you have a limited amount of space, then this might be the best route to take.

If you have more space then I would suggest a doorless shower with a walk in tray. This gives you much more luxury and space to move about in. You can get undressed and dried in these locations without spilling water onto the floor. This type of shower design also looks very attractive and impressive when you see it.

For bathrooms with strange shapes, you might want to consider a smaller, angled doorless shower design. These types of showers will fit in a corner and make maximum use of the space you have.

You might want to also consider a seamless, modern look in your bathroom, and a doorless shower will fit this specification perfectly. These showers are known to stop mildew from forming and are incredibly easy to clean and maintain.

If you like glass surroundings rather than an enclosed space, then choose to have a simple sheet of moulded glass without hinges or door handles as your surrounding area. This effect looks very classy and very modern.

This will be enough to separate the shower unit from the rest of the bathroom in a very modern and stylish way. It also gives the effect of having more light in the bathroom, as there no dark spaces within the bathroom. The light will also bounce of the glass sheet.

This type of design is also perfect for a very small bathroom, as it does not use up very much space. If you were to remove the bathtub and replace it with a doorless shower design, then you would be surprised with the amount of space that you would save.

Remember that you need to have a sheltered area big enough to prevent water from splashing out on to the bathroom floor. You also need to have a step down into the shower unit, so that the water drains away. These features are critical in the design of a doorless shower.

Keep these ideas and suggestions in mind when you start to shop and design your own doorless shower. I think they are a great investment for any bathroom and encourage you to install one as soon as you can. Remember to keep the bathroom size in mind and then find the most attractive shower design that you can.
