Walk-in corner shower enclosure, black finish - LOFT Collection, available at Hydropolis

These days, the bathroom is much more than just a functional space. It’s become a personal sanctuary where you can relax and recharge after a long day. With this in mind, walk-in shower enclosures have become a must-have trend for those looking to bring a touch of modernity and elegance to their bathroom. Whether you’re renovating your space or building a new home, it’s essential to consider the aesthetic and practical benefits of these open shower enclosures.

The Hydropolis teams, custom designers of your bathing and wellness spaces, offer you their advice and their favorites.


What is a walk-in shower?

Walk-in shower enclosures are distinguished by their frameless design, offering a clean, elegant aesthetic. Unlike traditional shower cubicles, these enclosures blend harmoniously into any bathroom style, whether it’s a modern, minimalist design or a more classic look. Their visual simplicity creates a feeling of space, which is particularly advantageous for small bathrooms, giving the impression of a larger, brighter room.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, walk-in shower enclosures also offer exceptional functionality. Their doorless opening facilitates access to the shower, making entry and exit more convenient, especially for people with reduced mobility. What’s more, they allow better air and light circulation, creating a more pleasant and refreshing atmosphere.

For loft chic in the bathroom

Inspired by industrial design and urban lofts, this shower enclosure perfectly combines clean lines and high-quality materials. Made from 8 mm thick tempered safety glass, the Loft shower enclosure offers exceptional resistance while bringing luminous transparency to your bathroom.
