If you are considering remodeling your bathroom, there are many things you need to consider. There is your choice of tile, the countertop, the sink and faucet, the lighting, and of course the shower. Showers are a centerpiece, in your bathroom, there is nothing more stunning than a beautiful walk-in shower or tub enclosure. One of the newest trends in glass is frameless shower doors, which are now possible as a result of advancements in glass technology.
Frameless shower doors can have numerous positive effects on space. Unlike framed shower doors, frameless shower doors allow for much more customization. They can be tailored to fit into almost any space. Whether you’re looking to fit the door in a small space, or if you want to have a huge walk-in, frameless shower doors can fit nearly anywhere.
Even if you put your shower in a small space, frameless shower doors do a great job of making spaces feel bigger and more open. Part of this phenomena comes from the frameless shower door’s ability to bring in more light. They make spaces feel bigger because they do not have an attached frame, which can make spaces feel more constrained. Frameless shower doors can also open both in and out. So, if you have a smaller space where an outward opening door could pose a problem, frameless shower doors are your answer. There are also hygienical benefits that come from frameless shower doors. The glass is easier to clean because there isn’t a frame. There is less of a chance of the shower developing mold.
We put the utmost care into our frameless shower door installation as a full services glass, shower, and bathtub enclosure dealer. We will install traditional showers or heavy glass showers into your home depending and what works best for you. Our traditional showers come in two forms, either a walk-in or a tub enclosure. We do two different styles of traditional shower enclosures, Standard and Euro. The difference between the two is the style of hardware and how it is attached. We also offer our traditional shower hardware and glass in a variety of colors and styles.
Our heavy glass showers are going to be the frameless shower enclosures. They are made of either 3/8” or 1/2” tempered glass. Because of the way this glass is constructed, it is a lot stronger than that used in framed enclosures. This is what allows us to minimize the enclosure to key hardware points around the glass.
