Shower enclosures have come a long way over the years. Your options used to be limited to metal-framed shower doors, but there are now many ways to achieve the look you’re seeking with a glass shower enclosure. Choose a completely frameless enclosure or one with a sleek frame and adorned with hinges and handles that create the perfect effect. Here are some things to consider when choosing a shower enclosure for your bathroom.
Glass Draws Light and Focus
A glass enclosure will turn an ordinary shower into the centerpiece of the bathroom. In nearly all cases, having a glass enclosure opens up the room, making it appear more spacious. Since the glass doesn’t block the light, the room also appears brighter. Glass can also be the perfect option to showcase ornate or specialty tile work in the shower. This ties the overall bathroom design together.
Glass is Durable and Easy to Maintain
Glass shower enclosures are easy to clean and maintain. Properly installed, glass shower enclosures require very little maintenance. As for cleaning, use glass cleaner and newspaper for a streak-free shine in the shower and throughout your home.
Privacy is Possible with Glass
If the thought of a clear glass shower doors sends you running for a towel, relax. Glass enclosures can offer privacy just as well as other materials and will add more beauty. Consider using patterned glass to obscure the visibility on one or more sides. Some showers have a solid wall halfway up, then custom glass for the top half. There are many options that offer privacy, function and aesthetic beauty.
