One of the first things that you look at when you're scouting out a new home is the shower. There's a reason that many call the bathroom the restroom. It's because people like to spend time in there, escaping from the world and pampering themselves. A shower is a very important part of your home and it makes sense to put a little more effort into it, if you are up for a redesign. What options do you have?


One of the most popular options available today is a glass shower without a frame. It's very stylish, open and airy and is also easier to maintain and to clean. You can get the glass treated with a special substance that will repel water spots that are so often difficult to get rid of or the accumulation of soap suds. Talk with a glass company to learn more about shower screen glass.

Framing the Picture

If you would like to go for a frame, then consider having one made of aluminium. These are strong and hard-wearing and you can choose a design that helps to mimic the look of the tiles you have in the shower area.

Building Blocks

What about building the shower structure using glass blocks? When you do this you won't need a door, which is a very trendy approach for a shower today. If you've got the space, you have a tremendous amount of options, only limited by your imagination. Remember, the glass blocks come in a variety of different styles and sizes.

Sliding Away

If you don't have room for a door that swings outward, why not consider a sliding option instead? If you're dealing with a limited amount of space this is a perfect solution.

No More Curtains

Some people love to have the best of both worlds and have a tub within the shower area. This doesn't mean that you have to mess with one of those awkward shower curtains, that never seem to do the job properly. A special glass enclosure can be created to surround the tub, to give you the best of all worlds.

Some Privacy Please

If you'd like to have some privacy when you're taking your daily shower you can choose glass that has texture built in. A variety of different patterns can be selected and if you want, you can choose an option that reveals just enough, but not too much!

Best of Both Worlds

Finally, you could bring everything together and have a shower that is composed of tile, glass brick, tempered glass and a stylish frame. Remember, that you can use glass in so many different forms and it fits in with just about any design scheme you have in mind.
