Capital Glass – Adding a Frameless Shower Enclosure to your Master Bath
Ask any homeowner looking to renovate their home or anyone looking to purchase a home and this is guaranteed to be on their wish-list of stuff: an amazing master bath!
There are a lot of great ideas that go into crafting or choosing the perfect master bath. High-end vanities, stone sink basin, jacuzzi tubs and an amazing shower enclosure. All of these things make up a great master bath and often times, the shower is the focal point of the room.
Believe it or not, adding a frameless glass shower to your master bath is a lot easier than what you may think.
Going with a frameless glass shower allows you to customize the size of the panels. This does two things:
- Allows you to use the maximum possible space for your shower without the doors being a delimiting factor of design
- Allows for either expert, or self-installation of tile while having it finished with custom glass for that perfect high-end look
By planning on utilizing glass for the front, sides (or both), you can hire an expert tile mason to design the backing and space without limitation. Or, if you’re trying to save a bit on the overall project, and you’re the handy type, you can lay the tile for the shower yourself and get the most out of the space without constraining yourself into preset dimensions. Simply use the space you have and then add the glass after the fact.
This allows for finishing a beautiful tile backing and plumbing and then simply adding custom glass when it’s all done. That’s where we come into play. Once you have your perfect shower built, we can custom cut and fit the glass perfectly into your master bath masterpiece!
When you approach the design planning on 2 or even 3 of the sides being frameless glass, it opens up some amazing DIY possibilities as well. If you plan on renovating your shower, but don’t plan on moving your plumbing, you can turn your DIY project into something far beyond a mere ‘shower kit’ you can buy at your local home improvement store. With only one or two sides of custom tile, the cost of that plus new hardware will likely be less than a far-less impressive ‘kit’.
For a one or two wall tile approach that doesn’t include demo – that’s realistically two, maybe three weekend/s worth of work as a capable DIYer. Then, when everything is built, simply give us a call and we can custom fit the enclosure with the end result looking like something straight out of a renovation magazine.
