Have you been thinking about giving your bathroom a fresh new look? If you are planning a bathroom remodel a new frameless glass shower has to be on your list. The elegant look of a frameless glass shower will transform the entire look and feel of your remodeled bathroom.
Open and Modern Look
Frameless shower doors provide an open and more modern appearance to your bathroom. The openness of the frameless showers allow natural light to penetrate the shower stall, opening up the smallest of bathrooms. There is nothing more refreshing than having natural light hitting you while taking a morning shower. This has led to the increase in popularity of frameless shower doors over the last decade.
Tempered Glass for a Frameless Shower Door
A frameless shower door typically use tempered glass that is 3/8″ to 1/2″ in thickness. The tempered glass is polished safety glass. Tempered glass is used because of its strength as it is much stronger than typical glass you would find in a regular framed shower door. Frameless shower doors are installed using hinges, screws and a vinyl sweep at the bottom of the door. Most of the time all of these pieces are invisible to the eye giving a seamless look.
Installing Frameless Shower Doors
Installing a frameless glass shower is not a job for the weekend warrior handy man. It is recommended to have a professional handle the installation.
