When you redecorate your bathroom, you have lots of options to choose from, from wall color to hardware finish. One of the most important decisions is how you choose to enclose your shower. Whether you plan to renovate an existing bathroom or add a new one, consider including a frameless shower enclosure.
Clear shower enclosures lend bathrooms a sense of modernity, class and cleanliness. In this blog, we discuss seven characteristics of glass shower door and how those characteristics benefit you.
Glass doors look sleek and chic. They make your bathroom space look more polished and unified because they allow other design elements to pop. Accent your paint choices, hardware and flooring with glass doors rather than adding an enclosure that could fight with the design.
Some enclosures, like shower curtains, only come in a single size and design. When you opt for a glass enclosure , you have the opportunity to create a custom solution for your bathroom.
The capacity for customisation becomes particularly useful in bathrooms with renovated showers. Because the shower was not designed with the rest of the bathroom, it may have created tight, awkward spaces or irregular shapes. Your contractor can take these eccentricities into account during the design process to ensure a seamless fit.
Glass doors in any room create an air of elegance, and your shower screens are no different. If you plan to sell your house within the next few years, opt for a glass enclosure. These shower screens increase your home’s value and entice potential buyers.
The glass used for shower doors undergoes tempering and treatment to strengthen it. It is shatter and scratch resistant. With proper maintenance, these enclosures can last as long as your home does. Talk to your glass contractor to find out the warranty options on your glass door and hardware. Typically, the glass itself lasts longer than the frame, handle or other hardware.
5. Low Maintenance
Shower doors require no maintenance other than regular cleaning to remove water spots and soap residue. In some cases, th
e door hardware eventually needs replacement, but appropriate cleaning reduces this risk. Frameless shower enclosures in particular prove easy to clean and maintain because you can access the entire glass pane.
When you hang a shower curtain, you create a distinct barrier that can make your bathroom seem smaller. Clear shower enclosures
add an organic flow that expands the space, making your bathroom appear larger. Shower doors also let more light into the enclosure, and this characteristic proves useful if you do not have a light source installed over the shower.
Shower enclosures offer total custom design options that allow you to fully integrate them into your bathroom space.
