Once you have chosen a style, contact an expert at GlassWorks to begin developing your bathroom designs. Shower doors and enclosures are a lot more than a functional aspect of your bathroom. They are an elegant addition to your home’s décor. Our solutions will help you merge elegance and function.
Shower Curtains vs Glass Shower Doors
Shower curtains are a relatively inexpensive option for showers, but is it the best choice? Both choices require cleaning and maintenance to last. If the shower curtains start growing mold or mildew, you throw them away. With shower doors, a cleaning solution and some elbow grease will keep your shower clean and looking new.
Shower doors and curtains have many different styles to add style to your bathroom. Shower curtains have a lot more design options but can contain chemicals that may leach into the water or air. Glass showers are made with tempered glass that are strong and durable. They will last much longer than a shower curtain.
Make the most of your space with glass shower doors
Bathrooms no longer need to be strictly utilitarian home spaces, rooms generally avoided except for necessity, and often associated with grime and a slightly claustrophobic ambiance. Modern design approaches combined with new finish and materials technologies offer great possibilities for opening up, lighting up, and cleaning up bathroom spaces.
Whether you are doing a simple facelift, a full-scale remodel, or new construction, it is important to leverage the contribution well-designed bathrooms can make to the overall beauty, comfort, and value of any home.
The surest way to an exquisite, inviting bathroom is an elegant glass shower door from the professionals at GlassWorks. Even a simple update based on a new shower enclosure/vanity mirror combination can have an amazing effect on your bathroom.
Glass Shower Enclosures
When it comes to a bathroom’s appearance and the impression the space makes, the shower enclosure is one of the most influential design components. For decades, shower curtains have held firmly to their place in bathrooms, primarily because they are very economical and easy to install. Maintenance generally entails disposal and the purchase of a new curtain. Even in new construction, it is still common for builders to install traditional curtained tub/shower set-ups.
Unfortunately, a shower curtain contributes almost nothing to the décor and atmosphere of a bathroom. Shower curtains tend to be sloppy-looking, drippy, and drafty. They are difficult to keep clean and quickly become breeding grounds for bacteria, mold, and mildew. When kept closed to present a neater appearance, a shower curtain blocks off a significant portion of space, making the bathroom seem smaller and reducing the light in the room.
Old-style glass shower enclosures are not much of an upgrade from shower curtains. They often look dirty even when freshly cleaned, they have a loose, rattly feel, and can make the shower space feel enclosed and tight.
Now, developments in frame and hardware technology along with advances in glass manufacturing and processing capabilities make glass shower doors and full glass shower enclosures beautiful focal points of bathroom design.
