Modern day walk in shower designs can have several different aspects depending on the present design of your bathroom and whether you are designing a new shower or you are designing the entire bathroom. Hopefully we can shed a little bit of light on those decisions before you get started.

Doorless Shower Designs, Or Do You Need A Shower Door

We have all seen those showers that consist of just a wall that divides the shower from the rest of the bathroom. The thing that you have to consider is that those doorless walk in shower designs are going to leave you with a damp or maybe even wet bathroom. While on the other hand you could have an enclosed shower with a shower door that will help to fix this problem. While walk in doorless shower designs may give you the look that you are wanting it may just not be practical without redoing a lot to the rest of your bathroom.

Tiled walk in shower designs for a tiled bathroom

If you have a bathroom that is tiled then you may want to go with walk in doorless shower designs that will compliment the existing tiles in your bathroom. A tiled shower that is open will make your bathroom seem larger and will blend in with the existing decor.

Bathroom walk in shower designs for a small bathroom

If you have a small size bathroom that you are going to be redoing then you can really make it stand out with some of the small walk in shower designs. Since a walk in shower without doors is going to make your bathroom seem larger why not retile the whole bathroom including the new shower so that they are the same, allowing the shower to blend in with the rest of the room. You may not be a big fan of the tiled look however and you may be looking for something different for your small bathroom. If a small tub shower design still takes up more space than you want for a small bathroom, small walk in shower designs may just be what you want. Some companies offer a line of small prebuilt shower enclosures that measure about 3 feet by 3 feet, just right for sticking in a corner out of the way.

I hope that these ideas have helped some in your search for a new bathroom. If you are still having problems coming up with ideas you might want to start looking for pictures of bathroom remodels either in magazines or on line. I have found that it is much easier to visualize this while looking at different models. Go to the big home improvement stores and look at their displays to figure out how it all fits together.
