shower doorsWondering about glass shower trends? HGTV’s Mary Kenkel - - explores what’s hot in shower design with a gallery of lovely bathroom photos.

A quick perusal of the piece leaves no doubt that homeowners continue to seek, not a boring utilitarian shower space, but rather a spa-like refuge from the stress of daily living. Here are some of our favorite take-aways from Mary’s article.

   •    Using seamless clear glass to enclose your shower space has far-reaching consequences since it makes the whole bathroom look and feel more spacious.
   •    Some homeowners opt to create a shower door from salvaged glass. For example, one of the pictured shower doors is an old factory window made of “tempered glass and raw steel.”
   •    “Bigger is better” seems to be the shower enclosure motto of today as roomy stalls are taking the design world by storm. These large showers often include extra features like therapeutic lights and body jets.

   •     Nowadays, glass enclosure use is not limited to the shower area, as seen in the featured bathroom with a Japanese soaking tub behind panels of clear glass.
   •    Not surprisingly in this era of home spa days, many showers now include seats, such as a bench extending along one wall of the enclosure.
   •    The steam shower is another rising star in the world of shower upgrades as it takes the home-spa concept to the next level.
   •    Roman showers, which feature curbless entrances, are also seen more and more in American homes. The elimination of a curb makes the shower more accessible for users with a range of needs and abilities.
