When you enter the bathroom, the shower is one of the first things you are going to see. So make a statement by remodeling your bathroom’s shower with dramatic glass finishes.

Today’s showers have come a long way since the polished brass frames around the door. In fact, showers now come in a variety of styles – from frameless to no enclosure at all. If you are considering glass for your shower, you may be surprised at the options you have available to you.

Glass Showers: More Than Just Clear Glass

Glass manufacturers today are producing attractive, alluring glass options that suit just about any bathroom style. If you are in the process of remodeling – or daydreaming about what your bathroom could become – glass should be high on your list.

Clear is not your only option for glass either. Today you can choose from:

  • Dark frosted glass
  • Random bubble patterns
  • Cascade finishes
  • Clear
  • Geometric dotted patterns
  • Winter frost patterns
  • Random hammered patterns
  • Vertical fluted patterns
  • Obscured frosted patterns
  • Light frosted glass with acid etching … and more

Before you choose your glass finish, you will want to first choose your door style.

5 Stylish (and Fun) Shower Ideas

1. Frameless: Gone are the days of those bulky frames. Today you can opt for a frameless glass enclosure that offers a sleek, yet classic design. Frameless styles fit almost any remodel concept, including traditional, contemporary and modern.

2. Aluminum and Glass: There is nothing wrong with a shower surround that offers decorative flare. Adding aluminum panels and frames gives a more eclectic finish to your bathroom. You can pair it with a bright-colored vanity, wooden finishes and industrial lighting.

3. Glass Block Showers: You can eliminate the need for a shower door altogether and still give your bathroom the illusion that it is large and open. Glass block surrounds are versatile, according to Houzz, and they give your bathroom a clean, cool look in the process.

4. Sliding Barn Door: Instead of using wood, you are taking the barn door concept and using glass. This is a new, but elegant feature that gives you the convenience of a sliding glass door, without the clunky large frames.

5. Tiled Finishes and Windows: In addition to your glass door, you can also opt for tiled walls with glass windows. This opens up the area more – and is a necessity if you have a large shower enclosure.

Conclusion: Think (and Go) Outside of the Box with Your Glass Shower Design

Endless design options are available today with glass. Not only can you choose a unique finish, but then you can incorporate your glass door into a variety of styles to give you a one-of-a-kind oasis.
