How a Custom Glass Shower Door Can Transform Your Bathroom

March 29, 2024

By Kevin Wisecarver

When it comes to updating your bathroom, getting a frameless glass shower door offers many surprising benefits aside from visual appeal. These doors provide improved functionality in the bathroom and offer a range of customization options. Frameless shower doors are modern, sleek and can turn an ordinary bathroom into a luxurious retreat. If you’re thinking of updating your bathroom, installing a frameless glass shower door can instantly transform an otherwise outdated space into a modern oasis.

The shower is the bathroom’s focal point, which is why it’s so important that you choose one that can improve functionality while adding style and luxury. With the addition of a glass shower door, you can create a soothing, relaxing environment that’s modern and elegant.

Maximize Your Space

An outdated framed shower door or an old shower curtain can make a bathroom feel dark, enclosed, and cramped. Framed shower doors and shower curtains can also obstruct your line of sight, cutting a bathroom into a third of its size. With a frameless glass shower door, your bathroom will feel more open and spacious. Additionally, you can choose the style of door based on your shower’s layout and the available space in your bathroom, creating more room and improving the flow in your bathroom.

Enhance Lighting 

In many cases, the lighting in a bathroom is lacking. Some bathrooms may not have many windows, while others will only have a single light fixture above the sink or located in the middle of the ceiling. A bathroom that’s poorly lit can make it hard to wake up in the morning or handle daily grooming routines. Because frameless glass shower doors lack a bulky metal frame, it allows more natural light to flow throughout a room, creating the illusion of a bigger space, while making your bathroom more inviting. When you install a frameless shower door, bad lighting will be an issue of the past.

Create an Easy-to-Clean, Sleek Look

Ease of maintenance is another major selling point for frameless shower doors, making them a wise investment for homeowners who are tired of their outdated framed showers.

Frameless shower doors feature large, sleek panels of tempered glass that are low maintenance and easy to clean. Unlike a framed shower enclosure that can harbor mold and mildew, frameless shower doors can easily be cleaned with the use of a microfiber cloth or a squeegee to wipe down the glass. To keep your shower glass looking new, simply wipe down the glass after each use and allow the door to remain open to dry out the shower.

Boost Bathroom Safety

Safety in the bathroom should be a priority, especially for households with senior family members, children, or individuals with mobility issues. A frameless shower enclosure comes with numerous benefits and is designed with safety in mind. Frameless doors feature thick tempered glass and designs that make them more accessible. The frameless, smooth edges of the glass can also reduce the risk of accidents. Additionally, these shower doors can be equipped with easy-to-grab handles and lower thresholds, making them a perfect choice for households in need of a shower that’s easily accessible.

Craft the Bathroom of Your Dreams

These frameless shower doors are also highly customizable and can instantly increase a bathroom's aesthetic appeal. You can choose from a wide range of shower door options, including the shower door design, the hardware used, and the type of glass that’s used, allowing you to create the type of spa-like bathroom you’ve always dreamed of. Depending on your bathroom layout and the available shower space, you can choose a custom glass door that works for your unique needs and adds more functionality to your bathroom.

Increase Your Home's Resale Value

Purchasing a custom shower door can significantly increase the value of your home. Homebuyers pay the most attention to the kitchen and the bathroom. Considering frameless shower doors are a popular bathroom trend, installing one can make your home more appealing to potential buyers while increasing the value of your home. These doors can instantly make an outdated space more modern, providing a touch of luxury and style, at a price that’s more affordable than an entire bathroom remodel.
