Benefits of a Glass Shower Wall with No Door

A doorless shower is a type of shower design that typically includes glass walls or half walls on one of its sides, instead of a sliding or swinging door. This type of shower can be a great addition to any bathroom remodeling project. In addition to opening up the space, glass shower walls provide other benefits, such as:

  • Easy Maintenance—The removal of a shower door makes cleaning and maintaining your shower much easier. Simply wipe down your tile surfaces with a sponge or microfiber cloth and make sure that the grout in your shower is mold-resistant.
  • Better Accessibility and Safety—Walk-in showers with no doors allow people with reduced mobility to easily access the shower and safely move around within the space. This simple difference can make the showering area noticeably safer for everybody. You can even consider adding grab bars or benches inside the shower for maximum accessibility.
  • More Natural Light—A curtain or shower door can close off the shower space, leaving it dim and closing out a lot of natural light. When you install a glass shower wall with no door, more natural light will flood in, illuminating the walls and flooring. An open shower maximizes this potential, letting natural light pour into every part of your bathroom.
  • Increased Space—Showers with glass walls feel less confining than a typical shower with a door or curtain. If you’re looking for a shower design to maximize visual and physical space, a glass shower wall with no door might be right for you.

What to Consider Before Installing a Glass Shower Wall

There is no universal design for installing a new glass shower wall. Doorless showers are almost always custom-made, allowing you to make design choices that are both aesthetic and functional.

Here are some factors to consider before beginning the installation process:

  • The amount of light available in the shower area—Installing a glass wall or half wall for your shower area will allow light from the bathroom to illuminate the space, so think about which area would produce the most natural light.
  • Existing walls in your bathroom—By optimizing your space and utilizing two corner walls, you won’t have to build a walled-off structure into the bathroom. A glass wall can be used to create a third wall to help define the space, contain water and reduce drafts and temperature fluctuations.
  • Type of shower head—Shower heads that shoot a direct path of water not only maximize the amount of water that reaches the bather but also help prevent water from spraying outside of the shower. You’ll want to consider how your current shower spray fits in with these needs.
  • The aesthetics of your bathroom space—A glass shower wall allows full view of your beautiful custom tile surround and shower floor. Creating a shower area with at least one glass wall or half wall retains the openness of a walk-in shower while containing water within the shower.
