What doors are there?
If you want a shower enclosure with door, you have the following options:
- Sliding doors
- Bi-fold doors
- Swinging doors
- Pivoting doors
Sliding doors are ideal for small bathrooms. They consist of one fixed panel behind which the door slides. This reduces the entrance area however. That can be resolved with two sliding doors such as shower enclosures with corner entry.
Swinging doors open inwards and outwards but sufficient space is required in front of and in the shower. These are usually very practical and popular shower doors. Pivoting doors on the other hand only open in one direction, usually outwards. They are advantageous if the shower room is so small that the door can't be opened if someone is in the shower.
Bi-fold doors are extremely practical shower doors. They can be simply folded aside when not required. For example, in narrow galley bathrooms if the shower is used as part of the walking area. Or simply because the bathroom looks more spacious without a visible shower enclosure.

Shower Enclosures and Baths
Whether on or next to each other - shower enclosures and baths are a hot topic. In order to place a shower enclosure next to a bath, you'll need a shorter side panel. This is placed on the rim of the bath. At Reuter, you'll find a large selection of shorter side panels.
If there is not enough space in the bathroom, the bath can easily be used as a shower. If you're not a fan of shower curtains, a bath screen is a good alternative.
