Glass shower doors and enclosures are popular in new construction and bathroom renovations across Northern Virginia. Families and owners of high end hotels and bed and breakfasts are veering toward shower glass instead of shower curtains, and there are a number of reasons for this trend. Maybe one of these is the reason you’ll decide to make the switch to a lovely glass shower door!
1. Decorators are taking many bathrooms from traditional to transitional, and a glass shower helps. Many homeowners are introducing modern elements into classic bathroom settings and thus creating a transitional style that blends the old and the new. The addition of a sleek frameless shower enclosure brings in the clean architectural lines that help define contemporary décor trends. At the same time, this glass fixture does not clash with the traditional bathroom components that remain present, so a new shower enclosure can be a great way to modernize a restroom without having to replace everything.
2. Glass effectively traps water inside the shower stall. Homeowners who are tired of wiping up puddles near the shower may order a custom glass shower door because:
- It is easier to remember to shut the glass door than to remember to make sure the shower curtain and liner are properly placed.
- When needed, glass shower enclosures include vinyl seals for reliable water containment.
- Glass is a solid and impermeable barrier to water droplets.
A quality custom enclosure can play a part in your effort to the keep the bathroom floor dry and free of mildew.
3. Shower doors and enclosures can be customized to meet your needs and décor goals. When you partner with a custom glass shop, your glass shower can be a one of a kind item that fits just right in your particular space. Here at ABC we take careful measurements and fabricate glass to accommodate special situations like surfaces that are out of level or corners that are out of square. Moreover, the shower door aesthetics are also tailored to the customer’s preferences. Whether you want frameless, semi-frameless, or framed we can accommodate your order. And we can build the shower from clear, ultra-clear, frosted, patterned, tinted, or cast glass!
4. Glass shower doors are versatile and coordinate with many décor themes. Yet another appealing feature of glass showers is their ability to harmonize with a wide range of styles. Modern trends favor shower doors that are simple but beautiful: clear glass, frame-free design, clean lines. No matter what your color scheme is or whether the bathroom’s motif is floral or geometric, a glass shower will not only fit in, but will enhance the room’s visual appeal.
5. Modern options make shower glass easier to care for. ShowerGuard glass is permanently sealed during the manufacturing process, and this means that it stays clean longer and resists corrosion. What’s more, ShowerGuard glass is significantly easier to clean that its standard counterpart. Even if ShowerGuard glass is not in your budget, you can achieve a glass enclosure that is easy to maintain. EnduroShield is a long-lasting protective coating that bonds to the glass and protects it from staining and damaging elements as well as soap scum. Thanks to innovative solutions, caring for a glass shower is easier than ever!
