Be intentional as you choose your bathroom décor and create a space that will remain convenient and appealing for years! Today’s bathrooms blend top of the line functionality, stunning visual appeal, and innovative amenities. Even if you’re just redecorating and not making major changes, look for items that look amazing while serving their practical functions.

Go Glass

Custom shower enclosure for 2020

Frameless glass shower doors are a prime example of an upgrade that offers useful features while dramatically improving the room’s appearance and ambiance. There are tons of frameless shower options available in 2020, which makes it easy to find what you’re looking for whether your bathroom is large or small.


  • In-line door and panel added to an existing tub or shower
  • L-shaped enclosure (in-line door and panel with a 90 degree return to fully enclose the shower)
  • Double swinging doors
  • Rolling “barn style” doors
  • Shower screen (single fixed panel with open entrance)
  • Corner shower (neo-angle or right angle)
  • Custom enclosure

Clear frameless glass forms an almost invisible barrier to water droplets, visually connecting the shower area with the bathroom as a whole. The result? The shower AND the room feel more spacious and open! Finally, glass shower doors operate simply and easily without the careful adjustments needed for a curtain and liner combo to function effectively.

It’s Time to Repair

Custom vanity mirror

Nothing drags down the atmosphere of any space like damaged items. Bathroom windows and mirrors are particularly susceptible. Window panes can be fogged, chipped, cracked, or broken. Mirrors may get cracked or chipped, and the backing can deteriorate. A custom glass shop like ABC Glass and Mirror can usually replace damaged panes, leaving the rest of the window intact. Likewise, a custom vanity mirror is perfect for replacing or improving upon your current mirror situation.
