Sleek, easy to clean and safer to get in and out of, walk-in showers are ideal for a number of reasons. For a seamless look, you can choose to go doorless with an open-concept, zero-entry shower, or you can go with a more standard shower enclosure with doors. Whether you’ve got a small bathroom or a master ensuite, consider the following walk-in shower ideas while you browse the photo gallery below.

1. Go Doorless

Going with a doorless shower can be a smart move if you want to open up your bathroom and create a more fluid look. You’ll just need to ensure the shower is spacious enough, with slightly sloped floors, so the rest of your bathroom doesn’t get sopping wet.

2. Small but Mighty

If you’ve got a small bathroom, it’s possible to pack maximum function and luxury into a tight space. Savor your showers with an enveloping rain shower faucet head, or add in a skylight for extra light — both of which won’t take up any extra room!

3. Be Creative with Faucet Fixtures

Without a shower curtain, you’ll want to make sure the interior of your walk-in shower is actually nice to look at. Dark, oil-rubbed bronze shower fixtures can look particularly striking, as do faucets with long, curved necks.

4. Go Bold with Tile

While you browse walk-in shower tile ideas, keep in mind that whatever you choose will be highly visible. For a minimalist look, opt for white subway tile. Alternatively, choose colorful mosaic tile to channel Mediterranean style.

5. Incorporate Seating

If you’re undertaking a bathroom remodel, consider having a shower bench installed for shaving or storing toiletries. This can be as simple as a wooden platform, or seating that’s inset into the wall.

6. Invest in Slab Marble

Hopping in the shower can be just as luxurious as soaking in the bath when you have beautiful slab marble walls all around you. And you won’t have to worry about unsightly grout stains!

7. Add a Ledge

It might seem obvious, but walk-in showers don’t typically have a spot to store soap and shampoo, so you might consider building a handy ledge into the wall.
