We are renovating our main bathroom. The trend these days seems to be open plan and walk in showers. They are probably easier to keep clean with no glass, although water gets splashed around a bit further. But here in Melbourne it’s cold in winter and I think it will be cold and drafty. What do you think?
Walk in definietly. That's the plan for our place when I get around to ripping out the bath. Less cleaning and opportunities to trip.
I would love a walk-in shower in our bathroom renovation however, our bathroom is a weird L-shape and I think I will need a corner shower due to space...
I'm also not convinced that a walk-in shower won't leave the bathroom covered in water!
We are already planning a walk-in shower for our next home. I don't mind a little extra water in the bathroom (until it drains anyway) compared to constantly cleaning the glass. I particularly love the open-plan look.
Removing the trip hazard of the cubicle edge for young children is also very important. I don't want them tripping into, or out-of the shower.
I'm a big fan of the walk-in shower, but I'm a bit of a claustrophobe and don't like being closed in. If they're positioned correctly in your space, you shouldn't end up with water all over the bathroom.
