10 Showers without a door:

Open concept designs have spread into the master ensuite bath -- with doorless entry tile showers. See photos of 10 walk-in shower designs inside recently completed new homes in the Chapel Hill, NC area.

Here are some popular features you'll see inside these open concept master bathrooms:

  • Archways, alcoves, and vaulted ceilings
  • Built-in seating and storage cubbies
  • Floor-to-ceiling tile
  • Wheelchair accessible features
  • Aging in place design

Open Concept Showers:

Each en suite master shower has no door. Some designs reflect recent trends towards contemporary home design; others are deceptively utilitarian. Can you tell which doorless showers are wheelchair accessible, and which are not?
