10 Benefits of Frameless Glass Shower Enclosures In Your Home

Bathrooms and kitchens are the most important rooms of your home. When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, you want to make sure that you are adding the most value you can to it and your home. Changing the vanity, mirrors and flooring are a great start but don’t forget about your shower. The materials available for showers have become more durable and decorative over the past ten years. The shower is now the focal point of the room (if there’s no tub). No more are the square shower stalls with gold brackets. Now, there are frameless glass shower enclosures.

What is a frameless glass enclosure? It is a shower with tempered glass panels and door. In some bathrooms, the shower and tub are both in the shower enclosure, creating a “wet” room. They are different from semi-frameless shower enclosures in that the door does no use U channels at the bottom or sides of the door to secure it. They don’t use the materials of the old showers, including rubber and metal. The doors slide on rollers or open and shut on hinges. These types of showers are works of art that give any bathroom the feeling of a spa retreat.

10 Benefits of Having a Custom Glass Shower

There are many benefits to having a frameless glass shower enclosure, aside from its beauty and instant value.

  1. The glass shower panels and door are made of tempered glass, which makes them stronger than normal glass. The glass is very thick and heavy, so the door will not wobble when opening or closing. If the glass should break, it will break into numerous smaller pieces that are not as sharp as normal glass.
  2. The glass shows off the tile, fixtures and shower heads.
  3. The shape doesn’t have to be a square; it can be a circle, oval or triangle. This allows you to create the Zen-like retreat you’ve always wanted.
  4. There is no lip to step over since the enclosure is level with the floor. This is extremely beneficial as it provides easy access for seniors.
  5. There is no water build-up underneath the door’s seals as with traditional showers. This reduces the risk of mold and mildew forming.
  6. The glass is easy to keep clean – just wipe with a squeegee.
  7. The shower enclosure creates an airiness to the room, allowing more light.
  8. You can customize the glass; you can make them clear, frosted or rain glass pattern.
  9. Avoid slipping with frameless glass edges that are filed down to a smooth surface.
  10. The glass is recyclable.
