If you want to add elegance to your bathroom, but you cannot afford a complete renovation, you should consider installing a glass shower door. However, before you decide to install it, there are a few things you should know about. Many people are afraid to install glass in a bathroom. Everyone dropped a piece of glass or a bottle at least once in their life, and watched as it shattered on the floor. One can think that glass shower doors will be also just as easy to break. Unlike household glass objects glass shower doors are a subject to heat treatment, which gives them extraordinary strength and safety. Keep in mind that glass shower doors are heavy. This is important to know if you plan to install them yourself. Frameless showers are perfectly suitable for a a modern bathroom design. Unlike traditional framed constructions, frameless shower made entirely of glass panels that are connected with metal connectors. Frameless shower designs require less power for cleaning and maintenance. Common problems of all frame showers are moisture and dirt between a frame and glass that cause formation of mold, fungus, and lime scale. Frameless showers solve this problem, smooth glass surface prevents appearance of dirt. Cleaning such a construction is also much easier, and requires only few wipes with water and glass cleaners.
Many house owners decide to install a finished shower, after finishing tiling. However, for most people it is a waste of money since a large portion of expensive and beautiful tiles on the wall is closed with a plastic shower. Frameless showers do not overlap wall sections and do not violate the integrity of the building.
