For most people, the shower is where the day either begins or ends. So a functional and stylish shower is a must for many homeowners. Traditionally showers have been designed with frames, which means they have been constructed with an aluminum or composite frame around the glass panels to stabilize the doors. But today, showers can be built without frames. This elegant, all-glass look has become a hot trend among homeowners looking to infuse their bathroom with a touch of luxury.
Frameless (or seamless) showers are constructed from clear glass that encloses the shower space. Because they don’t feature thick, metal borders, frameless showers can create the illusion of space and make the bathroom look larger overall. Implementing a frameless shower design can help you create lavish, spa-like atmosphere in your very own bathroom.
Depending on the design, they can be a bit more expensive and require thicker glass and careful engineering to be stable. However, if properly maintained, a frameless shower door can last much longer than a traditional one. To clean the glass, all you have to do is wipe the area with a rubber squeegee after showering. And since frameless doors have been constantly increasing in popularity, making this update could add value to your home.
