If you are planning on replacing your shower curtain for a glass shower enclosure, or you already have a glass shower enclosure but are thinking a refresh might look good, we highly recommend the frameless design. While design elements definitely vary from home to home, the frameless design is a tested classic that provides many aesthetic benefits. These benefits include:
Not Distracting From Other Elements
One of the main reasons to get a glass shower door is to highlight tile work or wall designs in the shower. And a framed shower door can distract from this. A frameless door is a perfect way to make the focal center of your bathroom your shower fixtures as well as your tile or stonework bathroom walls.
Increasing Natural Light In Your Bathroom
One of the other advantages of nearly any glass shower door is the natural light that can be let into the bathroom. Natural light from windows can give your bathroom a cleaner more natural feeling. Natural light is much less harsh than other light sources. Light let in through windows is better for applying cosmetics and is great when getting ready in the morning.
Creates a Spa-Style Look
If you are a big fan of going to spas, or maybe resorts, you might want to steal their aesthetic look for your own home. White towels, minimalistic design, and frameless glass is the perfect way to mimic that high-end spa or hotel. A frameless shower door can also highlight the matching designs between the sink and the shower fixtures. Mixing tile flooring and walling with these fixtures can really sell that modern high-end look that so many homeowners want for their bathrooms.
Making Your Bathroom Appear Larger
One interesting element to glass design is how it can make a small space feel bigger. When you enter a room that has mirrors, frameless glass, and windows, you will likely perceive it to be larger and more open. Whereas, curtains and a lack of natural light or mirrors will make a room feel more cramped and condensed. This is because of the way light affects our eyes and how our brain processes that information. While the square footage of a room won’t change, the layout can feel bigger when there is more light. Plus a frameless door extends the visual space of the bathroom all the way to the back wall of the shower.
