Would you like your next bathroom to feature a doorless walk-in shower? If so, we’ve got plenty of ideas and inspiration in this blog!
4 Reasons to Pick a Walk-In Shower
Before we share some pictures of recent glass screens that our team has meticulously fabricated, we’re going to discuss some of the many benefits of incorporating a walk-in shower without a door into your bathroom design.
You don’t require a large room as there’s no hinged door and thus no need to accommodate for it to open and close. Also, if you opt for a translucent glass panel in a smaller bathroom, it will help to create a feeling of openness.
Doorless shower screens, like fixed glass panels, are easier to clean as there are no handles or hinges where grime can accumulate.
- Practical and better accessibility:
No door means this kind of shower is easy for all family members to manoeuvre, including the elderly and those with a disability. If you pair a doorless shower with one without a tray, e.g. a wet room-style, it will be even more user-friendly.
- Sleek appearance that boosts value:
Doorless walk-in showers with glass screens provide clean lines in the space and don’t detract from the room’s other features
Doorless Walk-In Shower Ideas
- Wet room shower screen
A wet room style of bathroom does not include a shower tray, but instead is designed so the water can simply flow into a drain on the floor.
Not all wet rooms have shower screens but typically if they do, they simply consist of a fixed glass panel that helps to contain the water in the shower area.
- Fixed glass panel – frameless, semi framed, fully framed
Fixed glass panels for showers aren’t just popular for wet-room style bathrooms, but many homeowners are choosing this style because of their practicality.
At Shower Enclosure Service we can fabricate glass panel screens that are frameless, semi-framed or fully framed.
When it comes to frameless screens, they’re made from thick, 10mm clear toughened glass. Read about their advantages here.
Do you prefer a framed glass screen that’s the centrepiece of your space, like the bold black framed panel below? We have a number of frame options and colours available.
- Multiple fixed panels e.g. two with walkway in the middle
Are his and hers showers on your reno wish list?
If you’ve got the space available, an easy way to add elegance to your bathroom is to include two showers, each with their own transparent glass screen and an entryway in between them.
This kind of design really oozes style and sophistication. Plus, it also means that more than one family member has the luxury of showering in their own space when they want.
- Glass divider panel
Rather than having a full-length glass panel in a bathroom, many people prefer a divided wall which is part glass panel and part tile or other material.
This adds some privacy for those having a shower while the glass divider still ensures the space feels open and bright.
