When it’s time to transform a dark, dated bathroom into a bright, airy space, our Durham glass specialists can help you make the updates you need with a custom glass shower enclosure. Whether you prefer a classic look or you want a spacious, modern feel, our experienced team will design and install a beautiful enclosure or shower doors to achieve the look you’re dreaming of.
Why Choose a Glass Shower Enclosure?
Glass shower doors and enclosures are rapidly growing in popularity in Durham and the surrounding area for a variety of reasons:
Glass shower doors are incredibly easy to clean and maintain, especially compared to shower curtains that can grow mold and mildew or tear and wear out over time. With our custom glass products, even hard water stains and mineral deposits can be removed quickly and easily.
Glass shower enclosures allow more light, both natural and artificial, to flow through your bathroom, creating a brighter room that appears cleaner and more attractive.
Adds Sense of Space
While shower curtains create a visual “wall” that makes the bathroom seem small and closed off, a glass shower enclosure has the opposite effect. Glass doors allow the eye to move through the entire space, creating clean lines that make your bathroom feel larger and more spacious.
Custom shower enclosures can be designed and installed to fit your specific shape, making them ideal for smaller areas or when you want to create a separate shower and bath area. From traditional squares and rectangles to angled or hexagonal shapes, the design possibilities are nearly endless.
Return on Investment
If you plan on selling your home, adding glass shower doors as part of your bathroom makeover can give you a greater return on investment. Homebuyers seeking an attractive, low-maintenance bathroom will love the custom look and bright, airy space.
Choosing Your Shower Enclosure
At Glass Solutions, we can help you design a fully customized shower, starting with the type of enclosure you prefer.
Frameless Shower Enclosures
This open, “floating look” is a sophisticated option that is easy to maintain and shows off your entire bathroom to a beautiful effect. Installed with heavy ⅜-inch to ½-inch thick glass to ensure stability, installed handles and low-profile hardware will complete the minimal, modern look.
Semi-Frameless Shower Enclosures
Semi-frameless glass shower enclosures are installed with ¼-inch glass and are a more cost-efficient option for homeowners. This style relies on framing key structural points around adjoining glass panels and door hinges, while the edges of the door are frameless.
Framed Shower Doors
This is the most traditional and affordable option because it can be made with lightweight glass that is supported by a structural frame with attached hinges and hardware. Frames can be installed in a variety of metal styles, including stainless steel, bronze, or brass.
