In most bathrooms, showering is a sort of secondary function to bathing. It's a little unusual, because I'm willing to bet most of us take more showers than baths. But there you have it — take a bathtub, add a curtain so the water doesn't get all over the place, and now it's a decently serviceable shower. Those of you lucky enough to have a larger bathroom may have a shower with one of those cool modern glass enclosures. Those are pretty slick. But if you're remodeling, and you have the space and the inclination, maybe it's time to set your shower free. Maybe it's time to consider an open shower.
