Many homeowners find that they love the luxurious look of a shower enclosure in their bathroom. When you choose a shower enclosure, you will be faced with a decision to make; what type of glass do you want your shower enclosure to be made out of? There are several options for you. One isn’t more beautiful than the next; you just have to choose the one that makes the most sense for you and the style you have chosen for your bathroom. ANE Glass & Mirror is here to talk about the different types of glass homeowners can choose from when they are choosing the right shower enclosure for their bathroom.
Clear See Through Glass Shower
This is by far the most common choice among homeowners. This is a classic look for any shower, but if it is privacy you are looking for, choose something else. This clear glass gives you the best visibility in your shower and will almost make you feel like there isn’t glass there at all. It is a great choice for bathrooms that are a little on the smaller side.
Frosted Glass Shower Doors
Frosted glass is made using an acid etching to give the glass a satin appearance. It offers more privacy than clear glass does, but it doesn’t allow as much light to flood into the area either. Make sure you have the right lighting in your bathroom before you choose frosted glass for your shower enclosure. It is important to note that only one side of the glass is etched so it remains easy to clean and maintain.
Rain Glass Shower Door
This glass is etched to mimic the look of rain streaming down the glass. It is great for hiding hard water stains, fingerprints and other blemishes. Only one side of the glass is etched like the frosted glass, so it still remains easy to clean and care for. It offers even a little more privacy than the frosted glass will and has a beautiful pattern that makes is a great fit for any bathroom.
Decorative Colored Glass Shower
Maybe you aren’t a fan of the patterned glass or frosted glass, but are looking for a little more privacy than the clear. If this is you, you may want to consider having colored glass installed in your bathroom. Choosing colored glass is a unique choice for any space and is sure to be a show stopper.
Framed & Frameless Glass Enclosures
When you choose standard glass for your shower enclosure, you will likely need to have it framed with some sort of metal finish. This will give it the support it needs to make it durable. Heavy glass is used for frameless shower enclosures to give the illusion that there is no glass there at all.
