Style Up Your Bathroom with Shower Glass

Replacing a shower curtain or old-fashioned shower door with a modern glass alternative is one of the best ways to improve any bathroom. It doesn’t matter what style you’re going for – from modern industrial to ornate antique – there is a shower enclosure design that’s perfect. Consider just some of the possibilities.

  • If you want your bathroom to be a luxurious retreat, a frameless clear glass shower with gold plated hardware and a fancy handle would be perfect.
  • A Gridscape glass shower has black framing and mullions, and this “Crittall style” is perfect for many modes of décor ranging from modern industrial to Japandi to Mediterranean.
  • For a very contemporary vibe, consider ABC Glass & Mirror’s dual roller system – two rolling glass doors that move along a glass header.

Not sure what style is right for your home? You can see samples and photos at your free consultation AND ask questions of an experienced glazier.

Crittall style glass is surrounded by black metal and adorned with horizontal and vertical mullions. Although this look originated from industrial windows, it has many applications in modern interior design. A room divider is just one example. During these changing times, many of us have reconfigured and repurposed our living space. Crittall style room dividers allow you to stylishly create a new room within a larger space:

  • Home Gym – Putting your exercise equipment and mats behind a Gridscape glass room divider gives your whole set-up a trendy “old school” vibe.
  • Home Office – Teleworking is better when you have your own separate space. However, by using a black metal and glass screen, you can bring your living area more in line with today’s trends while also marking off your home office.
  • Home Bar – It’s very nice to have a dedicated place to relax at home, too. Create a home bar divided from the rest of the room by a Crittall style partition and pair this with a bar mirror wrapped in black metal for a harmonious ambiance.

Put a Mirror in Each Major Room

Michelle Brunner of This Old House offers “Home Decorating Tips for the DIYer in You”, and one of them is to include one or more mirrors in every room. The article explains that reflective glass brightens a space and that it’s best to hang mirrors at right angles to walls with windows to optimize this benefit.

It’s also important to remember that you can customize mirrors to fit with the practical and aesthetic needs of each room. For instance, popular mirror designs include beveled edge mirrors, metal wrapped mirrors, antique style mirrors, and mirrors placed in your favorite frames. Wonderful places for a mirror include:

  • Over a fireplace.
  • Behind a couch.
  • Opposite a beautiful wall hanging.
  • Between two bedroom closet doors.

Take Care of Your Clutter with Glass Shelves

When you do have to place a lot of items on one shelf, be sure to thoughtfully layer and arrange them, taking the time to make it maximalist rather than messy.

If your home is plagued with clutter, the first step is to sort through your belongings and donate, recycle, and discard as appropriate. Once you’ve whittled down the collection, glass shelves are prefect for storing items in a more stylish way.

  • Equip glass shelves with baskets and bins for stashing things, but don’t overdo it. Be sure to leave space between the containers and intersperse them with decorative accents.
  • If you’re storing books, stack some of them and place on-trend knick-knacks atop the stacks.
  • When you do have to place a lot of items on one shelf, be sure to thoughtfully layer and arrange them, taking the time to make it maximalist rather than messy.
