One of the sleekest and most elegant ways you can improve your bathroom is by upgrading the shower glass doors and mirrors. Doing so will instantly brighten up and refresh your bathroom while giving it a modern and clean look. Most contemporary homes include bathrooms that feature an open layout to promote flow and fluidity within the space. If you’re looking to remodel your home or are in the process of a new build, consider adding custom shower glass doors and bathroom mirrors to your bathroom. Putting custom shower glass doors in place of traditional doors and curtains provides a higher-scale appearance and even helps make small bathrooms appear larger.

How Can Custom Glass Shower Doors and Mirrors Enhance My Bathroom?
Glass shower doors are a true sign of elegance and luxury given their sleek and clean appearance. Most modern homes are built with glass shower doors and custom bathroom mirrors to complement the rest of the bathroom’s design. Now, many homeowners who are remodeling their old, outdated bathrooms or are looking at new homes to purchase, opt for the custom glass shower doors as opposed to the traditional shower curtain – and for good reason.
Elevate Your Bathroom’s Appearance
Shower glass doors are a great feature to add to enhance the appearance of your bath. Where other shower door options may look cluttered or less expensive, glass shower doors exude luxury. Rather than worrying about taking down your bathroom shower curtain to wash and then leave to dry, you can simply wipe the glass clean, reducing the burden of maintaining your bathroom.
Plus, with these doors, you can easily show off the fixtures, faucets, and shower heads to your guests. Since the glass has an invisible appearance, it creates a sweeping look and a flowing space which matches the bathroom design.
Durable Products for Low-Maintenance Bathroom Care
Despite their delicate look, these shower glass doors are quite tough. The thickness of the material used ranges up to half an inch, thus making them structurally sound, sturdy, and absolutely safe.
Make Your Bathroom Look Bigger
Due to their transparency and openness, these shower glass doors make the bathroom feel much bigger and more spacious than it actually is. And custom bathroom mirrors will also help brighten up the room and create a more spacious feeling. Because they are completely customizable, the mirrors can be designed for any bathroom size and style.
Types of Custom Shower Glass Doors and Tub Enclosures
There are three main styles of glass shower doors and bathtub enclosures including frameless, semi-frameless, and framed. Each of these options also comes with either a sliding or swinging door enclosure depending on your preference and the layout of the bathroom.
Frameless enclosures provide the sleekest look as they seamlessly frame the shower with minimal use of metal. Thick tempered glass is used to create the shower doors (which have machine-polished edges) creating a smooth surface and then attached using headers or other clips. It has a trackless design that combined with the clean look of the glass gives your bathroom the illusion that it’s bigger than it actually is, which is a huge plus for smaller bathrooms.
Semi-frameless enclosures utilize some metal around the edges of the glass panels. This is also a great option for homeowners looking to create a more modern, open feel in their bathroom but still wish to keep the look of the frame intact.
Fully framed enclosures will utilize a metal frame around the entirety of the shower or tub enclosure. Because of the metal frame holding the glass in place, a thinner glass is used in this type of enclosure.
Sliding Door Enclosures
Sliding glass shower doors, also called bypass shower doors, are installed by means of a track system. They require some sort of track that supports the top and bottom of the shower door so that the panels hang from the top and glide for seamless opening and closing.
Swinging Door Enclosures
Swinging doors are installed on a fixed point and operate by swinging open from the tub or shower, like your typical house door. These are available in two styles: heavy glass hinged doors that swing in and out in most cases; and pivot doors that swing outward only.
