Custom Shower Glass
When you are visiting and step into someone else's bathroom, what is one of the first things that you notice? For most people, it is the shower. Therefore, when designing your bathroom, you will want to make sure that your shower enclosure matches your individual style and accentuates the space. There are a ton of options for your shower enclosure, including these six:
1. Frameless Glass Shower Enclosure
This is one of the most popular options for modern homes. This is because it is visually-appealing with its clean, sleek design that works well with simple or modern tastes. Frameless custom shower glass helps to create a timeless and elegant look. The best feature is that it is incredibly easy to clean and maintain. When all of the benefits are combined, you are simply looking at something that will allow you to showcase your shower beautifully and with minimal effort.
2. Glass Shower Enclosure with an Aluminum Frame
If you aren't too keen on the completely frameless shower look, you may want to consider something that is a bit more unique that will add some flair to one of the most relaxing spaces in your home. This particular type of shower enclosure uses an aluminum frame with glass panels set into it. Of special note, when you use a dark-plated aluminum, it creates a very eclectic feel and look.
3. Custom Shower Enclosure Using Glass Blocks
If you are wanting to eliminate the entire need for a door on your shower, you may want to think about a glass block shower enclosure. These glass block surrounds are extremely versatile and you can get glass blocks with various textured patterns on them for something even more interesting and unique. The glass blocks create strong, clean lines that provide your bathroom an overall simple, yet cool look. Glass blocks such as these can be purchased in a variety of thicknesses, styles and colors.
4. Textured Custom Shower Glass Enclosure
Often traditional shower glass in bathrooms tends to utilize the frosted look. If that doesn't match your needs and expectations, you may want to consider a custom shower glass that has a texture on it. You will still get the privacy that you desire, but you'll get something far more beautiful with the textured glass. As water runs down the shower glass, the texture will look even more stimulating and create a spa-like feel.
5. Glass and Tile Custom Shower Enclosure
If you like the idea of frameless shower enclosures, but you are a little hesitant regarding the idea of the vast openness of them, then you may want to consider a combination of glass and tile. You can opt for a frameless glass door and tiled walls with narrow, tall pieces of glass in the walls (similar to that of windows). This approach will still allow a good amount of light into the shower, while also making the shower seem larger on the inside.
6. No Shower Enclosure At All
If your bathroom is large enough, you may not even want a shower enclosure to begin with. If you choose to go this route, you will want to make sure that you are able to separate the shower area from the rest of the bathroom. You can also create a sense of unity, while separating the bathroom from the open shower, with a tiled wall. In addition, make sure to keep the floor material consistent throughout to make the bathroom seem even larger. Heat lamps can be added into the ceiling or the shower floor can be heated with radiant floor heating.
