Bathrooms no longer have to be plain, basic and boring to be functional. They can also be beautiful, chic and someplace that’s a pleasure to retreat to. In recent years shower and tub enclosures have become one of the best Custom Glass Shower investments a homeowner can make in their bathroom. Both for the present enjoyment and future resale.
According to Home & Garden magazine, “The bathroom is the new kitchen”, and dollars spent there will bring a return when the home is sold. The options available for shower and tub enclosures are numerous.
Choose between framed and frameless designs in either 1/4″, 3/8″ or 1/2″ glass. Options for glass include clear, obscure, patterned, etched or slumped designs in various shapes and colors. Compliment any of these options with over a dozen different hardware finishes and you’ll have your own unique statement that will combine both beauty and functionality.
Framed Sculptured Glass Shower
Depending on the design and size of your shower or bath, a framed enclosure may best suit your needs. Structurally stronger than most frameless units due to the metal component, it allows for the use of lighter 1/4″ glass and can be less expensive as well.
Framed units may also be more water tight due to the close tolerances and flush joints.
Frameless units give a more contemporary open look to your shower by eliminating a majority of the metal framework around the glass. Most frameless units utilize 3/8″ or 1/2″ glass and their design options are too numerous to list. These structures can provide simple elegance or elaborate architectural appeal to a bathroom. Please be aware that safety is always our number one concern and due to certain size and design limitations not every enclosure can be totally or even partially frameless.
