Header/Bulkhead on 4 by 4 Shower? Type of Shower Door?

sailormassAugust 6, 2012

Hi, folks--I'm having a 4 by 4 shower installed--the cement board is up, the plumbing is in and the tile is being installed as we speak.

I've attached a pic of the shower as it looks now

The shower had a rainshower head and there is a light in the ceiling. The ceiling will be tiled. I plan to install a high-quality glass door.

Two questions:

--The installer and my carpenter are willing to install a header/bulkhead if I want one at very little cost. For this size and style of shower, would you recommend that?

--In the past (but this was with a six-foot-long shower with a header), I've had a Century glass sliding door that I've loved--great quality, gorgeous door. Should I go with a slider here or with a panel and swinging door?

Thanks for your help!

I vote for a swinging door. Not enough room for a slider.
It's too late now, but I would have also installed a regular shower head or a handheld spray. Only because not everyone likes getting doused from overhead. ; )
