Be sure to steer clear of these mistakes when designing the glass shower for your bathroom renovation. Don’t let your investment into a high-end enclosure be an investment into a headache.

Enclosure Too Small

You definitely don’t want to skimp on space in the shower enclosure. Design trends today favor roomy stalls that offer a spa-like experience at home. These spacious showers give you plenty of room for amenities like a bench and extra shower jets.

Inconvenient Access

Entering and exiting the new glass shower enclosure should be safe and convenient. Here are some tips for ensuring success.

• Choose a sliding door type unless there is plenty of clearance around the shower entrance to allow for handy functioning of a swinging door.
• Consider ditching the curb. Curbless showers eliminate the possible tripping hazard created by a raised curb. You can even take this one step further by eliminating the door panel altogether to form a walk-in enclosure.
• In designing the bathroom as a whole, keep a clear pathway to the shower door.

Expensive Tile Hidden from Sight

If you spend money tiling your shower walls with elegant pieces of ceramic, porcelain, stone, or glass, you probably want to show off this feature of the room. Choosing a frameless design and ordering clear or ultra-clear shower glass allows you to enclose the space without compromising the view of the tile-work.

Too Trendy

It’s one thing to buy hand towels that correspond to a passing fad, but when you’re investing in a large fixture like a shower enclosure, you want to seek a look that is both stylish and timeless.

Bad Placement of Body Jets

Glass shower doors are designed to seal up and keep water inside the enclosure. However, a shower enclosure is not an aquarium. Jets or sprays that are aimed right at a seam or gap will result in water leaking onto your bathroom floor. Situate all jets strategically so that they spray toward a solid, seamless surface.

Compromising on Quality

Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Shower kits from home improvement retailers can save you money, but they are one-size-fits-all items. On the other hand, custom glass showers are built from pieces of glass that are specially fabricated to fit in your one-of-a-kind space.

Custom panels are cut to account for out-of-square corners and surfaces that are out of level or out of plumb.
