Same here.

I agree. It never even occurred to me to get into the shower from the front.

Regardless, every bathroom I've had, the front of the shower is close to either a sink or a toilet, so there wouldn't be a ton of room to be hopping in and out, and also-no bathmat would fit between the tub/ sink or toilet, so I'd be slipping on wet tile.

Same here. No matter how much I adjust the temp of the water, as soon as I put it to the shower I get a a burst of cold water first. So I get in at the far end of the shower with the shower head pointing as far down as possible. Plus the toilet is closest to the faucet.

My kid's bathroom is this way.

I have a shower stall in my bathroom as well.

Before I married my DH it never occurred to me there were people that get in the front since I've always stepping in from the far end when using a tub/shower combo, so I guess I would have thought it was a weird question!

The back so the water doesn't splash out of the shower.

I alway reach in and turn the nozzle so that it is facing the wall and then turn the water on towards hot. I let it warm up as I undress. I get in at the nozzle so that I can adjust the nozzle and the temp of the water.

DH and I differ on this one too.

I am a firm believer in going in from the back side away from the faucet. If for no other reason, (like mentioned before) it keeps the water from splashing out.

Away from the nozzle. Now this could be because I am really short and I would get a face full of water if I enter at the nozzle end.

Near the nozzle. I don't know why.

It's so interesting how others do even the simplest things. I've never entered a shower at the nozzle end that I can recall since I don't want a face full of water or water on the floor.

It is! I was thinking the same exact thing. I never gave it a thought as to which end of the shower I enter. Same with butter, never thought people would leave it on the counter. Funny the things you learn on the DIS.

I have a square shower with two doors. I can enter from either side.

I ALWAYS do this: turn water on, adjust to the right temperature, wait for any changes, then step in at the nozzle.

No water splashes out and I had getting in from the back. I like to be all wet at once. My shower is also really powerful, so it wakes me up, too.


But, when we are traveling, I do the opposite! I can't trust hotel showers to not suddenly change temperature and I've had my fair share of cold blasts to last me a lifetime to not enter from the back, just to be safe.

From the back and I never even dreamed of going in from the front. If you have a single door entry, I think that qualifies as entering from the back because you are entering behind the spray right? Unless you have a door and nozzle to the side then I guess that is when you would enter in the middle which opens up a whole new realm of possibilities
