Make Your Bathroom Remodel Sparkle with Glass Fixtures

Bathroom Remodeling Chantilly VAEmphasizing glass in your bathroom remodel can give your space an upscale feel and spa-like ambience. Clear glass even has the power to make the room seem larger and more open, so let’s take a look at the many aspects of a bathroom that can benefit from glass.

One of the most popular glass elements in shower remodels today is the shower door or enclosure.

Replacing a tub insert and shower curtain with a shower stall made of clear tempered glass will transform both the bathroom and the shower interior. Both will become more bright and airy, and the glass itself will add sparkle and elegance to the restroom.

Custom shower enclosures can be created to correspond to the specific space you have available, and diverse options exist for:

    •    Door type
    •    Glass style
    •    Hardware style
    •    Hardware finish

Another glass must-have is an attractive vanity mirror. Don’t be satisfied with a cheap medicine cabinet or ill-fitting mirror above your bathroom sink. When you begin to explore custom vanity mirror options, you find that this utilitarian fixture can – and should – double as a charming wall hanging.

Some of the possibilities for a visually striking vanity mirror are:
    •    Framed mirror
    •    Mirror installed with spacers that cause it to stand off from the wall
    •    Mirror with a beveled edge
    •    Unique mirror shape
    •    Mirror custom cut to fit correctly in an irregular space

While not feasible in every bathroom, many designers and homeowners are choosing to separate the commode from the rest of the space. When it does not make sense to give the potty its own little room, a screen might be your next best option. A half-wall made of privacy glass keeps the commode from marring the room’s chic visual appeal.

Options for privacy glass include glass that is completely frosted, glass with a frosted design, and tons of choices in textured patterned glass. This wide variety of choices enables you to create a custom glass partition that blends seamlessly into your bathroom décor.

Another innovative use of glass in modern bathrooms is the glass backsplash. These can often be seamless, which gives them an edge over tiled backsplashes that require you to seal and clean grout. Backsplashes fashioned from back painted glass are available in any color you want, so they can be subtle and neutral or bold bursts of color.

Finally, don’t overlook the importance of bathroom windows. They are a great source of natural light and help keep the room’s atmosphere fresh and pleasant. Fogged or cracked window glass detracts from their appeal, though, and can even discourage you from opening your curtains. If the fear of having to replace the whole window has kept you from addressing concerns like this, you should look into replacement glass. Many cases of marred window glass can be solved by a glass expert who will remove just the problematic pane and replace it with the appropriate piece of glass.
