Glass "door"?

mwagner7700October 8, 2012
I love this look. And it's the exact layout of my bathroom. I have a question about the "opening". Is there no glass "door"? What prevents water from the shower from getting out?

Thanks. Nothing prevents the water from getting out, other than the sheer size of the shower which is quite wide. Bear in mind this bathroom was designed for a toddler who never showers alone, so an adult is actually showering him with the handheld, or when the shower head is used on the other side it is simply directed properly to avoid any splashing towards the bathroom. It works, under these conditions. We are about to do another one, very similar to this, for a teenage girl, and we are planning on no glass door again. Hope that helps.

That does help. Thanks. I love absolutely everything about this bathroom. Unfortunately, mine isn't so large so I can't go much wider than a typical shower (maybe another 6", but that's it... and that would probably require reworking the location of the toilet). I look forward to seeing pics of the new bathroom you're working on. Thanks so much for replying!!!!

My pleasure. You may need a door if you have a standard width, unless you are careful when using it. I always try to avoid the door whenever I can! Good luck with your project. I am attaching a pic of another bathroom I did without a door which was a regular width, and no curb on top of it!
A little bit of water would sometimes go into the bathroom but only a small amount and it never bothered anybody.

Would 34" be enough not to have a door?

I assume you are talking about the opening? Hard to say without seeing the room's lay out but in theory, yes. It's very personal though. I am sure a ton of designers out there would disagree and insist on a door. It depends on your lifestyle and priorities.
