A shower (or shower-bath, walk-in shower, steam shower) is a place in which a person bathes under a spray of water. The water is then drained through a drain in the shower base. The modern shower comes with configurable temperature and spray pressure settings, along with adjustable showerhead nozzle settings.

Showering is common in western culture due to efficiency of using it when compared to a bath. Its use in hygiene is therefore common practice.

A shower uses less water than a bath: 80 litres on average for a shower compared to 150 litres for a bath.
