Shower Enclosure Design Ideas

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Saturday, May 21, 2016)

shower doorsGetting the shower door design right is a key aspect of turning your ideas for a dream bathroom into reality. This large fixture imparts its own style to the room as a whole and can truly define a bathroom’s ambience.

The possibilities for enclosure design are practically limitless in today’s world of customized showers, and these visually appealing stalls are finished off with spa-like touches and increased safety and accessibility.

Glass shower doors are the perfect choice for a large, luxurious bathroom and for a compact space in need of a more glamorous design.

Existing tub inserts can be instantly dressed up with the installation of glass sliding doors or a swinging door alongside a stationary panel. Making this switch gives both the shower area and the bathroom a more open and roomy feel. Other shower enclosure options include:

    •  Glass shower room – If space allows, consider having glaziers build an enclosure with every wall made of glass.
    •  Right angle showers – This look features walls meeting at 90 degree angles.
    •  Neo angle showers – Neo angle enclosures include walls meeting at both 90 degree and 135 degree angles.
    •  Steam shower doors – A glass steam shower will be fully enclosed to trap the steam and will be fitted with an operable transom for humidity control.
    •  Custom doors – Stalls with unique shapes and dimensions are possible when you work with a professional glazing team.

Along with the overall configuration of the enclosure, you can further customize the shower area through your choices in glass and hardware. These include:

    •  Clear, ultra-clear, frosted, patterned, tinted, and cast glass
    •  Frameless, semi-frameless, and framed construction
    •  Array of handle and hinge styles
    •  Metallic and paint finish options for hardware

Each decision you make will impact your glass shower enclosure as all the various components come together to form a complete unit.

While shower door aesthetics have high priority in today’s bathroom designs, great emphasis is also placed on spa-style upgrades and enhanced accessibility. Possibilities include steam kits, aromatherapy kits, shower benches, glass shelves in the shower, rain style shower heads, body sprays, non-slip flooring, curbless entrances, walk-in stalls, and more.

Showers like these are more than utilitarian spaces; they become retreats from the busyness of life and havens of relaxation and renewal."
