Plumbing in the Home/Shower door

Question
My tub is enclosed on 3 sides by tiles walls. I'm tired of the showers curtain and was thinking of a glass, hinged shower half door. I like the look, just wondering if water will be all over the bathroom after a shower? What's you opinion?

Answer
I would opt for a full enclosure.  We use Kohler frameless by-pass doors and if installed correctly, you will get no water at all.  I'm not wild about those doors.  1/2 doors should NOT be used.  Plus the Kohlers are almost HALF the price!!!
