Bathrooms today are treated like other rooms in that they should be functional but yet offer comfort, openness and good traffic flow. Shower enclosures are designed to complement the contemporary design of modern homes. Shower curtains are clumsy and passé. To keep the bathroom on the same scale as the balance of the house, a glass enclosure is necessary. Don’t think it is necessary to tackle this change by way of a custom glass shop. Many hardware stores and big-box facilities carry just what you want.
Glass shower enclosures are available in a number of different sizes, shapes and finish options. They are designed in different configurations to accommodate the size and character of the home. There are pre-cut sizes to give the homeowner the opportunity to create just the right design. Finishes include chrome, brushed nickel, and oil rubbed bronze. Corner showers and enclave showers and steam showers are all available. Each enclosure can be completely unique. There are:
All-glass enclosures can provide top quality materials that will result in a focal point for any home design or style. They are engineered with an eye to highest possible standards including premium 3/8 inch thick tempered glass as well as quality hardware. They are designed to install on custom tile or shower pans. If budget is a concern, look into a frameless shower. The cost of this style is around $600 versus specially made units.
Shower glass doors are the future of bathrooms. These can be available through customized systems to deal with an existing space without the necessity of a whole-room remodel. Contact Ottawa Valley Glass for the latest information and prices.
