Walk-in Shower Dimensions


If I have a shower that is 48" across, would it be feasible to make it a walk-in shower with a 24" glass panel at the end where the showerhead is and a 24" space at the other end for entering the shower? Is that too narrow for the glass panel, allowing for water to escape onto the bathroom floor? What about if it's a rain shower? Thanks for your advice

Yeah, too narrow methinks even with a movable panel extension.

Walk-in Shower Dimensions


I figured as much. Had hoped that with a rain shower, it would be enough. So what would you suggest I do here? I want the dividing wall between the shower and bath to be half-height allowing more light into the shower and also so that the wall can be used as a shelf. It might be weird to have a glass panel and shower door on the front of the shower while leaving the space above the wall open? Maybe I will have to glass the whole shower in?

Yep---water will end up getting out----try making a temporary wall using Styrofoam and tape----that's a cheap way to see if it will work----I tried it on a much bigger shower than that and ended up adding a door---
