Pros & Cons of Doorless Showers

When it comes to customizing your shower, design, accessibility, and price are among the many things to consider. If you’re considering a doorless shower, we’ve created this handy pros and cons list for you to make a better, more informed decision. 

Pros of a Doorless Shower:

A doorless shower is luxurious. A shower without a door can bring a modern look to your bathroom! 


Glass shower doors are a headache to constantly clean to avoid hard water spots. Without a door, you will have significantly less cleaning as part of your routine. 


Doorless showers are accessible. Without a glass barrier or threshold, people of all different ages and mobilities can easily enter and leave their shower without worrying about the potential risk of falling. A doorless shower will allow you to experience that oh-so-important peace of mind that you and your family will be safe in the wet areas of your bathroom.


A doorless shower is custom-designed to fit your specific needs as a homeowner. You can choose how many niches to include in your shower or even to install a shower seat


Last but not least, a doorless shower will open up your bathroom space and provide a modern, relaxed feel that you won’t get with a closed-off shower. Without a door, the usable square footage will increase because you don’t need to work around your shower door. 


With no door to trap in steam and heat, you might get chilly in a doorless shower. However, an installer can solve this through some additional upgrades, such as towel warmers or heated flooring. 


Although the customizability of a doorless shower can be a significant advantage, having a shower custom designed for your home can be significantly more on the pricey side than other shower options. 


Additionally, if privacy is important to you, a doorless shower provides less privacy than its doored counterparts.
