If your bathroom leaves something to be desired, look for ways to enhance its ambiance, beauty, and convenience. Making upgrades in one or more of these areas improves the space without a full remodel. For less stress and hassle, consider partnering with a custom glass shop like ABC Glass & Mirror that can help with design and wrap up the project with professional installation.
Since bathrooms often have no window or a single small window, their atmosphere can easily be confining and even dark. Glass is one of the best materials for brightening up such a bathroom.
• If the bathroom does have a window, make the most of this natural light source by removing the window treatments. When privacy is an issue, the existing glass can be replaced with frosted or patterned glass that obscures visibility.
• Shower curtains don’t help if you want the bathroom to feel larger and brighter. Order clear shower or tub doors to replace the curtain. Transparent doors let light pour into the shower AND they make the room feel more open by including the shower area in the view of the bathroom.
Adding a custom glass installation will improve the appearance of the entire space. For example, custom vanity mirrors can be ordered in various geometric shapes or used to completely cover a section of the bathroom wall with reflective glass. Of all the bathroom furniture and fixtures, the toilet is the least aesthetically pleasing. For a high end touch, have a frosted, patterned or back painted glass screen installed in front of the commode. This creates a private space within the bathroom besides keeping the toilet out of sight! Back painted glass can also be used for shower wall panels. These are the perfect complement to clear glass shower doors when it comes to making a shower stall brighter and more attractive.
Arranging a shower curtain and liner (especially when they’re damp!) is arguably one of the most inconvenient aspects of taking a shower! Whether you choose rolling, bypass, or swinging glass shower doors, you’ll love switching to the simple action of pulling the door shut. Another way to make a bathroom more convenient is by adding glass shelves. You can choose the dimensions, placement, style, and supports to personalize the shelving to your needs and tastes. Floating glass shelves are perfect for storing everything from towels to toilet paper to decorative knick knacks. Finally a back painted glass backsplash is a fantastic alternative to bare wall behind the sink or even to a tiled backsplash. Glass holds up well to water droplets, and with no grout lines, cleaning is a breeze!
