Tub door solution

Just remodeled our bathroom with ceramic tile.
The tub is in a alcove.
I had planned to use tub/shower doors, but the job came out so nice it would spoil the look of the tub and alcove.
Is there any options out there such as a roll up shower curtain or anything of that type where the door/ curtain can be hidden until needed?
The alcove has a bulkhead and something along that sort would work great!

I can't think of anything specifically made for the shower that rolls up when not in use. However, you could use those tacky vinyl roller blinds as a type of roll up shower curtain. But once it's wet and rolled up you're going to have problems with mildew and mold. Probably more trouble than it's worth. Plus, I can never get them to go back up when I want them to.

Why not just put up a clear shower curtain liner? It's not the most elegant solution, but it would work.

Tub door solution

Simple solution is not to use typical tacky shower doors. Get a clear glass, frameless unit that is practically invisible.
I did a bath for a customer once who opted for a bifold glass panel that only covered about 1/2 the tub length. When not needed it was folded up against the wall. It was also frameless and clear glass. She never had a problem with water getting out of the tub. But she also had no little kids.
