Walk in showers without doors have always been slightly puzzling to me because I could not figure out how the water does not get all over the bathroom. I really love the look of showers without doors because it feels so much more clean without the glass in the way (not to mention it literally eliminates that step of cleaning). With that being said though, I was still really concerned about water getting all over my bathroom. That is until I found this home with pretty much the exact same walk in shower ideas as I had pictured in my head for ours. After studying the pictures for quite some time, I have come to the conclusion that it is all in how you place and direct your shower heads.
I am aware that walk in showers without doors are trending strongly right now, but I am just not into the look or functionality of it. No matter what people say, I just don't understand how walk in shower designs that do not have doors could possibly not spray water everywhere. There is not way that my wife could take a shower without soaking the entire bathroom. As you can probably tell from these photos, we have door-less shower tucked away in a miniature room. My plan is to simple had a frameless glass shower door to the opening in order to prevent water from escaping without impeding the wall visually. I really do not see anything wrong with the pictures of walk in showers on here that have doors, so I am going to make this quick change that will upgrade the functionality of ours.
I have always been very intrigued by walk in showers without doors, and one in certainly on my wishlist for our new home that we are remodeling. This bathroom was one of my favorite shower tile ideas 2020 that I saw on here because the they lined the very cool circular shower with the same tile that is on the walls and countertops to make everything flow into that space. It makes the shower the definite focal point of the room, which I am very into right now. The only thing that I am not feeling about this design is the actual tile and countertop coloring. Peach and tan is not exactly my tones, so it would not be something that I would put in my walk in shower remodel, but I am definitely down for the concept.
I think that walk in showers without doors are just very cool and one of those luxurious touches that not every home has. I have been to quite a few luxury hotels that have a full wall or corner walk in shower that simply does not have a door, and I have always felt like such a queen bathing in there. When it came to planning our new master bath, I knew that these bathroom shower ideas were a feature that I wanted to incorporate so that I could experience that luxurious feeling everyday in my own home. I am not one that lives for vacation, I would rather every day to feel like a special treat. That is why I like how this house has a corner walk in shower without a door right next to a jacuzzi tub, so that you get the best of both worlds.
I know that walk in showers without doors are trending strong this year, but I just don't see them as being truly functional for our home. I want our bathroom shower designs to look very current and keep the house feeling fresh for a few years (especially if we decide to sell), but I am not really willing to sacrifice function in the name of beauty. I thought that the glass "half door" that they chose for this bathroom may be a nice compromise because it gives the look of the trending walk in showers without doors, but still provides the benefit of having a barrier between the water and the rest of the bathroom. The added bonus is also that you are able to see the beautiful shower tile ideas that you chose (and I am sure spent a good bit of money on) since the view will not be impeded by a traditional shower curtain or door.
Although I am not the biggest fan of walk in showers without doors (that seem to be trending so much these days), I do like the concept of limiting the visual barrier that door frames and shower curtains create. You spend so much money and put so much thought into picking out bathroom shower tile ideas, that I hate covering them up! Rather than going completely "doorless," my husband and I opted for this sleek frameless glass shower door that is virtually invisible. It was the perfect choice for our small bathroom designs with shower that takes up the entire back wall, because it gives the illusion that the room is longer than it is since there is not a shower curtain blocking off the back portion of the room (and that window that lets so much light in).
