Think of a shower: it’s got a showerhead, drain, soap dish – but what’s missing? Obviously, every shower needs a curtain, screen or door so that it’s private and contains all those dozens upon dozens of litres of water, right? Not necessarily! In fact, there are plenty of reasons to take a much closer look at the latest and most stylish doorless shower ideas.
Get the location and layout right, and the doorless shower can still protect the user’s privacy. Better still, with the perfect floor gradient, the right materials, a modern large showerhead that disperses water more evenly, customised ventilation and skilful water resistance and proofing, you can add a no door shower to your place – no worries!
Have you spotted one or two ultra-modern, uber-trendy showers without doors lately? It’s not hard to see why they’re suddenly topping the list of the most popular shower designs:
1. The aesthetic appeal
Waltz into any newly-renovated, multi-million dollar, ultra-trendy modern mansion, and you can be sure it features several open showers. Put simply, it’s the sleek, minimalist, expansive, uber-contemporary look for every modern bathroom renovation that gives you the feeling of space and calm rather than that cluttered old cubicle.
2. The accessibility
It will be no surprise to learn that among the biggest fans of the latest doorless walk-in shower ideas are those who need better accessibility than most. Need a walker, wheelchair or have other mobility and accessibility needs? A no-glass shower is probably the answer for your bathroom.
3. The flexibility
If fully enclosed, the customisation options for your shower within the confines of your showering area and bathroom are obviously finite. But a no door shower opens up a vast new world of almost limitless options for how you use that space and what style you select to complement it. From small bathrooms to vast ones, and even outdoor spaces, showers without screens can go just about anywhere in just about any form – as long as you get the critical design elements right.
4. The lack of maintenance
By getting rid of the glass, screen, door or other enclosure characteristics, you’ve instantly accessed one of the best benefits of the doorless shower – less, and easier, cleaning and ongoing maintenance. Fewer crevices, fewer edges to trap moisture and soap scum, and much easier access when you do get around to giving it a proper clean.
5. The wellness
If you’re aiming to really feel at peace when relaxing under the shower, and looking for the ‘healthiest’ way to stay clean & hygienic, showers without doors are probably for you. People report that breaking out of that confined shower cubicle simulates showering under a natural waterfall, with improved air quality and ventilation a useful side benefit. Not just that, there’s less chance of dealing with mould or bacteria growth, and simply feeling like you’ve won at the game of life with spacious, luxurious open showers is just plain good for you too.
