Unless your bathroom is big enough to have a completely open shower, with water spraying gloriously all over the place, having some kind of enclosure is sort of a necessary evil. A lot of modern bathrooms solve this problem with frameless shower doors, which are so lovely and minimal that it's almost like they're not there at all. But that's not what this post is about. This is a celebration of the showers that say "I'm a shower, dammit, and I want you to look at me." This is a post about the most beautiful shower enclosures in the world.
Above: a custom designed steel framed shower enclosure has the look of a vintage window, making getting in and out of the shower a grand occasion. Spotted on Trad Home.
Another steel framed shower enclosure, with a slightly different design. There are so many things to love about this bathroom: the tole chandelier, the window in the shower, the mix of subway tile and encaustic — but the shower is really the crowning glory. Living Etc via The Bower Birds.
Frosting the bottom half of a glass shower enclosure is a great way to provide a little privacy while preserving a minimalist look. Remy Meijers via Home Adore.
And now for something completely different — a black tinted shower enclosure. Sort of like the one I imagine James Bond would have in his country house. Spotted on Architonic.
This shower features the standard frameless glass, but it's the hardware that sets it apart. Also, this might be the most beautiful bathroom ever. From AD Russia. And your wildest dreams.
