When Should Pattern Glass Be Used for a Shower Door?

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Tuesday, July 07, 2015)

Glass Shower Doors

If you are ordering a custom shower door for your bath area, you are probably already aware of the numerous glass options available to homeowners today. Among these is pattern glass, and there are several reasons a customer might prefer this option over plain clear glass.

Before delving into the circumstances that make pattern glass ideal, let’s take a quick look at what it is.

Pattern Glass Definition

Pattern glass is characterized by a textured pattern on one side. (The other side is usually smooth but may have slight texturing.) Many patterns are available ranging from dramatic fluting to nature-inspired shapes to delicate waves on the surface of the glass. 


Reasons to Use Pattern Glass

Homeowners typically use pattern glass for privacy, aesthetics, or both.


     1. If the bathroom is regularly used by more than one person at a time, pattern glass can be utilized to make the shower stall more private.
     2. When the interior of the shower stall is aesthetically flawed, pattern glass obscures the view.
     3. Pattern glass can help a shower door or enclosure really stand out and become the focal point of the bathroom.
     4. Themed patterns such as bamboo can be important decor pieces in their own right.


Are There Any “Cons” to Using Pattern Glass on a Shower Door?

Before finalizing your choice of shower door glass, you will want to weigh the pros and cons of all your options. Your bathroom is one of the rooms in the house used by everyone, and so keeping it clean is important .  


The truth is nothing beats smooth glass for ease of cleaning, so keeping patterned or acid-etched shower glass clean is going to require more effort. Protective shower glass coatings are available, so be sure to use one – especially if you opt for glass with a textured surface.
