Doorless shower design ideas - Where to find beautiful doorless showers
This article is going to run through some of the most beautiful doorless shower design ideas that are currently available on the market. Once you have read about the designs, you can start to look for your own doorless shower design.|
One very popular doorless shower design uses a walk-in shower pan of about twenty-four inches as the open entryway. This style of shower design has large back walls and sidewalls, plus a four-inch integral front curb, fibreglass flange in order to keep the water inside the shower.
You are able to choose from a left or right drain location, to suit your own bathroom. You can also select a design of your choice from contemporary or classic. With this doorless shower design, you can take a shower in beautiful surroundings and then get dried in the open entryway without ever getting water on your bathroom floor. This design does use up more floor space in the bathroom, but the effect is very impressive.
If you have less space then you might want to consider an open-front walk in shower. The shower area is much small and it does not contain a walk-in shower pan, but you still have a doorless shower design with a front curb. This also allows for a great shower feature in a smaller bathroom.
If you want to make the walk-in shower unit have a more contemporary look then search for those with off-set bases. There are many doorless shower designs that have three-square sides with the forth offset. This can look very impressive and also allows for easy access to the shower unit itself. This is also a great idea if you have a limited amount of space.
A corner doorless shower design is also great for small rooms in which space is at a premium. The corner unit will fit in tightly with the two walls and provide enough room for bathing, but you will loose the effects of a walk-in tray and other features of the more expensive shower units.
If you have a very large shower, then you might want to consider a much grander doorless shower design. You could give more space to the shower and have twin showers inside, to enable two people to shower at once.
With this amount of space you wont have to worry about water spilling out onto the bathroom floor. You can either have two levels put into the shower design, or create a step out of the shower. Alternatively, you could also have a walk-in tray that acted as a drying location also. The choices are many, because you have so much space to use.
I would also consider using a glass shower enclosure, which provides a very beautiful appearance, and makes showering a lot more enjoyable. It might require a little more cleaning, but the results are very pleasing on the eye.
With this type of shower design, I would also consider a marble effect on the floor, which will give the perfect finish to the doorless design.
Whatever doorless shower design you decide to go for, make sure that it can be accommodated with your bathroom style. Also ensure that your current bathroom design will complement it and create the beautiful effect that you are looking for.
