They Are Easier to Keep Clean and Maintain

Forget about the endless hunt for that piece of hardware that is no longer available from the manufacturer. A frameless shower door offers you fewer components to worry about.
They Become the Centerpiece of Bathroom Design
The beauty and light that a glass shower door brings to any bathroom make it the centerpiece of the bathroom’s design. It is impossible to enter a bathroom with a frameless door and not turn around to look at it right away; it is too attractive to ignore.
Styles of Frameless Shower Doors
Frameless shower doors offer you the convenience of having them swing or slide. Depending on the shape and size of the enclosure that your bathroom needs and taking into account your preferences, you may have a single swinging door or two sliding doors.
If you are leaning towards a swinging shower door, there must be enough clearance for the door to move freely without hitting any object or having anything blocking the entrance.
Building codes indicate that swinging shower glass doors must be installed to have the possibility to swing outward even if you only want it to move inwardly.
Many homeowners prefer a sliding shower door, particularly in bathrooms where space is an issue, and it is not possible to have room for a door to swing outward. Sliding doors have evolved to achieve the modern frameless look, and you can install a barn-style glass shower door that glides along an upper metal bar. One panel can be hung next to a fixed glass wall, and if the shower is large enough, you can consider a set of double barn doors flanked by a solid piece of glass.
Types of Frameless Shower Doors
Frameless shower doors are usually fabricated from tempered glass. This provides homeowners with both durability and safety. However, although there are many different types of tempered glass, clear tempered glass seems to have won first place in homeowners’ preferences for several reasons, such as:
- If your shower stall features beautiful and intricate tile work, a clear glass door will allow you to showcase it, unencumbered by framing.
- By installing a clear shower door, your bathroom will look lighter and roomier.
- Clear glass gives the appearance of larger, more open spaces, giving bathrooms a distinctive modern look.
- Clear glass is much easier to keep clean than textured glass.
If you are thinking about installing clear glass, at CM Glass, we offer you the option of going with standard clear glass or ultra-clear glass. Ultra-clear glass has less iron content, thus minimizing any greenish discoloration that tends to happen at the edge of glass panels.
You can also have your shower door treated with ShowerGuard to permanently seal it and avoid discoloration, corrosion, and staining.
Different Glass Options
There may be different reasons you might need a shower door that is not completely clear. You may need privacy, or the bathroom design might call for a special glass. Some possibilities you may wish to consider are:
Frosted or acid-etched glass – This is also a popular option when it comes to creating a secluded shower space. You can have a uniformly etched piece of glass, or you may want a design etched onto the glass.
Pattern glass – There is an assortment of patterns you can choose from to achieve the perfect look for your bathroom.
Tinted glass – several colors are available to complement the look you are trying to achieve.
Cast glass – This is a heavily textured glass that is manufactured by pouring molten glass into a mold. There, it hardens and forms the cast glass. It is not only distinctive, but it also offers a more private shower experience.
