One upgrade that will change the entire look and feel of your bathroom is the installation of a frameless glass shower. These models have minimal hardware interrupting their smooth panes—being without substantial and visible metal edgings. Here are several reasons to consider a frameless shower.
A frameless glass shower will give your bathroom an expansive, open feeling. The reason for this is that the enclosure and the general room area will visually form one space, as you'll be able to see straight through the transparent panels. On the other hand, heavy framing or shower curtains block off the shower area so the entire bathroom feels smaller.
Emphasises Other Design Features
A frameless shower, being virtually invisible, will emphasise other features such as beautiful travertine tiles or intricate mosaic ceramic designs. You'll be able to create an elegant or artistic backdrop which won't be overshadowed and disrupted with chunky frames and curtains.
Glossy glass screens reflect light around a bathroom, preventing a dark and damp impression. They'll increase flattering natural light from windows so you can tone down the artificial lights so they're not too stark or bright. Pale hued wall and floor tiles in creams, fawns or other soft tones will also bounce light around, increasing brightness.
Decorative Glass Options
While crystal-clear glass opens up a bathroom, with a frameless design, you also have other options. For instance, you could install decorative screens that obscure the shower from general view, creating a more private showering experience. Options include frosted glass, in various designs and degrees of transparency, as well as patterned glass. Thus you can create a beautiful decorative feature out of the screens themselves with intricate filigree motifs or modern geometric lines and circles.
Choose Your Shape And Size
In designing a frameless custom shower, you can plan it around your bathroom's dimensions. In a small room, for instance, you could install a hexagonal enclosure in a corner so you can reclaim back some general floor area that a square design would otherwise take up. Alternatively, in a large bathroom, you can design a more spacious shower in which you can add a tiled bench seat. If you love minimal decors, you might prefer the calm of fixed shower screens that section of a wet-area, without the fussy metal handles and hinges that shower doors add. You'll be able to make the most of space to include a bath, if you have room, with screen creating a shower out of the same area.
