Keeping Glass in Top Condition: A Guide

Hello! My name is Vince. Last year, I learnt a very important lesson - if you do not look after the glass in your home, it will not look after you. You see, I hadn't really inspected, cleaned or carried out any maintenance work on the glass windows and doors in my home. One day, during a storm, the glass in one of my windows shattered. I didn't know what to do. When I called in a glass contractor, he said that the glass had failed due to a hairline crack. He replaced the other pieces of glass in my home and gave me some advice about glass care.

Top 3 Perks of Installing Frameless Shower Door in Your Bathroom

When it comes to choosing a glass shower door for your bathroom, you will need to make a choice between framed glass and frameless glass. Frameless shower doors are a contemporary alternative to traditional framed shower doors. Generally speaking, frameless shower doors cost more than framed models, and this is for good reason. Here is a look at some of the reasons behind the higher price tags of frameless shower doors. 

Frameless shower doors allow for optimal customisation.

For homeowners who are looking to make their bathrooms look and feel truly custom, frameless shower doors are the perfect installation. Unlike framed shower doors, which are mass-produced and come in a range of standard shapes and sizes, frameless shower doors can come in any shape and size, as there are no frames to get in the way. This, in turn, adds more flexibility to the design of shower door installations. As a matter of fact, the biggest perk of frameless shower door installations lies in the whole raft of design options achievable.

Frameless shower doors are easier to clean.

Bathrooms are the primary personal hygiene areas in the home, hence it is imperative to keep them completely clean at all times. Keeping your glass shower door clean and hygiene will help prevent spread of germs, as bathrooms are often utilised by more than one person. Thanks to the omission of frames in their design, frameless shower doors are much easier to clean compared to their framed counterparts. With frameless glass, people can clean the entire surface of the glass, as there's no framing to make sections of the glass hard-to-reach. 

Frameless shower doors add more aesthetic appeal to bathrooms.

If you are looking to create a beautiful, modern-style bathroom, frameless shower doors are the way to go! These shower doors look chic, as their edges are not covered in metal or rubber framing, which can sometimes become quite an eyesore. In addition, frameless glass gives the illusion of a larger space, with no framing to break the limpidity of the glass material. This adds to the beauty of bathrooms in an impressive way.

While frameless shower doors may cost more to install compared to frame shower doors, it is clear that they are the better choice as explained by the above-discussed points. If you are considering installing frameless shower doors in your bathroom, be sure to talk to a glass specialist first. They will help you choose the perfect product for your bathroom installation.
