The Firebird is loaded with grab bars and lots of space to move around - a great aging-in-place design.

The Judson, a wheelchair accessible home, is a great example of just how big and open a shower can be in a custom home. We're getting requests for this kind of wide open access to the shower for homes that do not require any special accommodations.

More master bathrooms are going "no tub" - like this shower only en suite bath.

The New River House big shower has a built in bench, with a shape that tapers to allow as much floor space inside and out as possible in a smaller bathroom.

Coordinating colors with a custom tile treatment makes this huge shower even more fun, in the Oak Lane master bath.

10 Top Shower Designs Without a Door [From North Carolina Custom Homes]

Posted by Penny Hull on Fri, May 01, 2015 @ 13:05 PM

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?
