Doing research now on a bathroom remodel. Take out everything in a 1975 built bathroom. Remove tub and sliding door shower and replace with a larger open tiled shower.

If you have one you like and could post pictures I would appreciate it. It will be a walk in shower with no tub and perhaps a bench type seat on one end. I have noticed a ton of options for the shower head and other plumbing.

Thanks for any input.

Terry

Only advice I have is to keep the shower valve as close as possible to the head. My brother's place has the valve on the opposite side of the shower from the head, and it makes it a pain to get the temp just right before you get in. Takes a couple seconds for the temperature to change once you turn the valve.

I'd give this design some serious consideration - totally open, at least on one end and no glass. Glass is expensive and hard to maintain.

My last house had a walk in shower that was open. The problem is during the winter, it gets too drafty for me. I got to design ours at the new house. We put our shower knobs close enough for you to maintain controls while under the shower head but in a place where you didn't get hit with the cold water when you initially turned it on. We have his and hers shower heads and it is great. We put two corner benches in ours. We also have the wall insert to hold soap, shampoo, etc. I would consult with someone who does it for a living as they know what works best and can give you ideas. Kendall with Hometown Flooring did ours and he was very helpful in finalizing the design we wanted.

Get rid of the door/curtain
Make the shower not only a walk-in shower, but a doorless shower
Add some lights.

My buddy said was great until you turn the water off, then heat rises being replaced with cold air off of floor. Heated floor not a good option in Texas. Radiant heat from ceiling would work, just need to find something mrs will accept.

Our shower is open, no door. I run the rain head and the wall head hot enough that when it’s cold in the bathroom I steak up the entire bathroom to the point of having to use the exhaust fan. It helps having a tankless water heater and an endless supply of hot water.

I just did our kids bathroom. It was time for an update. I did the entire thing myself in my spare time and all for under $2k. Pretty proud of that! Next I will be doing the master bathroom. I just need more spare time! laugh
