There’s a reason glass is a popular material for bathrooms. It’s beautiful, durable, and easy to clean. But did you know that glass coating can make your bathroom even cleaner and hassle-free?
Today’s shower coatings can keep your beautiful glass shower enclosure squeaky-clean nearly all the time—so you can spend less time scrubbing your bathroom and more time enjoying it.

How Shower Glass Coatings Work
Glass is already a hygienic and easy-to-clean material. It’s obviously much more hygienic than the typical moldy shower curtain. Because it’s relatively non-porous, it doesn’t stain as easily as other materials (like marble) and is quick to wipe down.
However, glass does get dirty over time. That’s because glass does have texture (even though it feels perfectly smooth to your hands). Water can cause streaking, and soap scum, oils, and dirt can accumulate on the surface of the glass. Eventually, discoloration can occur.
Glass coatings are a fine, invisible lawyer that is bonded to the surface of the glass. The coating smoothes over the invisible texture of the glass. It’s applied in the last stage of the glass manufacturing process.
The result of a glass coating is a material that is hydrophobic and even more hygienic: water, oils, and soap are repelled. The glass stays cleaner, longer. In addition, the glass coating makes it easier to remove any water or oils on the glass, since the grime sits on the coating rather than in the texture of the glass itself. As an added bonus, the coating makes the glass even more scratch-resistant and durable. Finally, the coating prevents glass corrosion and discoloration over time.
There are glass coating sprays on the market; however, they wear off and have to be reapplied. For a permanent solution, opt for coated shower glass instead.
Is a Glass Coating Right for Your Shower?
Is a glass coating right for your shower? This largely depends on how much you like cleaning your bathroom!
If you’re the type of person who squeegees the glass after every shower and never fails to do a weekly bathroom deep clean, you probably don’t need a glass coating. (We’re not here to judge: maybe you find cleaning meditative!)
However, if you would rather do anything else than deep-clean your shower (we get it), a glass coating is just the ticket.
Glass coatings do add an additional cost to the shower enclosure, making it more expensive than non-coated glass. That said, if you prioritize ease of cleaning and durability, glass coatings are well worth the extra expense.
