Corner Shower Options for Northern Virginia Homeowners

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Wednesday, March 01, 2017)

Homeowners should know their options in corner shower design before selecting products for their Northern Virginia homes. From enclosure shape to glass style, the possibilities are boundless when you choose to upgrade a bathroom with shower glass.

Two Types of Corner Shower

Two common corner shower variations are right angle and neo-angle. Let’s take a look at what each of these has to offer.

Right angle –
Not surprisingly, a right-angle corner shower features 90 degree corners where glass meets and glass and where glass meets the existing walls. 

Neo-angle –
These shower enclosures have two fixed panels of glass that meet the wall at 90 degree angles, but that do not join up with one another. In the gap, a swinging door panel is hung at 135 degree angles to the fixed panels flanking it. Neo-angle corner showers can be particularly appealing in small bathrooms where floor space is a precious commodity.

Enclosure Styles Available for Corner Showers

The corner shower that is installed in your Northern Virginia residence can be frameless, semi-frameless, or framed. Choosing frameless construction guarantees you a shower stall that is elegant and fashionable. What’s more, the absence of framing leaves the enclosure feeling spacious and open. 

On the other hand, a framed shower offers you the ability to add a charming glass enclosure to your home without spending as much money. The aluminum frame permits glaziers to construct these units using thinner, less pricey glass. What’s more, the frame does offer some protection to the edges of the tempered glass, which are more vulnerable to breakage than the rest of a sheet of tempered glazing.

If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, you might need a semi-frameless unit. These enclosures include both framed and unframed glass and have a mid-range price point. If you’re unsure about which type of enclosure is right for your design goals and budget, just call ABC Glass and Mirror, Inc. at 703-257-7150 and set-up a free in-home consultation and quote with one of our shower door specialists.

Types of Glass that Can Be Used on a Corner Shower

Your corner shower can be further tailored to your individual preferences by the style of glass you choose. Consider the wide range of possibilities:







You can even opt to have a protective EnduroShield coating applied to your glass to make it stay clean longer and be easier to care for. Alternatively, you could select clear ShowerGuard glass which has a protective seal that is part of the glass itself.
