Enchanted Bathrooms: Choose Your Best Glass Shower Enclosure

Choosing a glass shower enclosure is such an important part of remodeling a bathroom! Let’s look at what you should consider:

  1. Style and Aesthetics: Think about the overall look and feel you want for your bathroom. Do you prefer a sleek, modern design or something more classic and elegant? The style of the glass enclosure should complement the rest of the bathroom.
  2. Space and Layout: Consider the size and layout of your bathroom. Are you working with a small space where a frameless enclosure might open up the area, or do you have more room to play with different styles and configurations? Do you want a sliding door or a swinging door? Do you want your door to swing in or out? Right or left?
  3. Glass Type: There are various types of glass available, like clear, frosted, or textured. Clear glass can make a smaller bathroom feel more spacious, while frosted or textured glass offers privacy. The thickness is also something you can choose.
  4. Maintenance: Think about how much time and effort you’re willing to put into cleaning and maintaining the enclosure. Frameless enclosures, for example, are easier to clean because they have fewer nooks and crannies where grime can accumulate. You can also have the glass coated to resist water marks.
  5. Hardware and Finishes: Pay attention to the hardware and finishes of the enclosure. Choose finishes that complement other fixtures in your bathroom, like faucets and towel racks. Also, consider the type of handles and hinges you prefer. The color choices are usually chrome, brushed nickel, gold, black and oil rubbed bronze.
  6. Budget: Set a budget for your project and stick to it. Glass shower enclosures come in a wide range of prices, so it’s essential to find one that fits within your budget while still meeting your needs and preferences. These are typically $2000 to $4000 so remember to include it in your initial budget.
  7. Installation: Make sure to hire a reputable contractor or company to install the enclosure properly. Proper installation ensures the enclosure is secure and watertight, preventing leaks and other issues down the road.

By considering these factors, you’ll be well on your way to choosing the perfect glass shower enclosure for your bathroom. Let me know if you need any more advice or tips!
