Frameless Glass

In this bathroom, a frameless tempered glass no-threshold shower makes the small space feel much larger. Pebble flooring extends from the floor of the bath to the shower to increase visual width.

Dramatic Style

A no-threshold shower with a glass enclosure helps this dramatically designed bathroom to feel as large and open as possible. A black and white chevron floor, wall sconces and a custom vanity lend glamour to the space.

Accessible Shower

For maximum accessibility, the designer of this contemporary bathroom installed a curb-less shower with a 60-inch turning radius, a fold-down seat and attractive grab bars. Beautiful slip-resistant porcelain tile floors add style and function throughout the space.

Shower and Tub Room

This contemporary bathroom incorporates a wet room area with a no-threshold shower and a separate soaking tub. A large window allows natural light to illuminate the space.

Curved Privacy Wall

A curved wall provides privacy in the no-threshold shower in this contemporary guest bathroom. Honed limestone floors and walls lend a sophisticated, spa-like look to the space.
