Crafting The Perfect Shower
• Today's homes have bathrooms that are larger and more practical than those of
the past. They are now a place where we can relax and unwind. There are many
ways that we can add more enjoyment to our bathrooms and a great shower is
one of them. Your shower is the largest item in your bathroom and is the thing
most people will notice. You want it to provide a relaxing experience which can be
accomplished by installing "rain" shower heads and many other terrific options but
you also want it to look stylish. One of the most important things to help with
getting a great look is the shower doors.
• For choosing shower doors or enclosures, homeowners have a couple of basic
designs available to choose from to give them the perfect look. You have the
option of installing a shower enclosure that utilizes a frame or ones that do not. As
you might expect, cost is going to be an issue here. The frame design enclosures
allow for a thinner construction using a glass that costs less so this will be the
lower cost alternative. The enclosures that do not make use of a frame are
constructed of a thicker glass to allow for the lack of a frame. As you might expect,
the cost of materials and manufacturing makes these more expensive.
• But with the extra cost comes some advantages. First, many people
just think that they look better. They have a more elegant
appearance and can really make or break a bathroom's design. Also,
since there is no frame, there will be no place for water to settle.
This means that there will be easier maintenance and a less chance
of mildew forming.
• Another design issue to consider is the opacity of the enclosure.
Some people like to have a shower enclosure that is at least
partially obscured to give them a feeling of privacy. Some people
prefer no obscuring of the enclosure so that they have a better view
out. The choices are personal to each person and, if choosing a
design that makes use of some sort of obscuring design, there are
many to select from to give a great appearance.
• For homeowners that decide to go with a framed
variety, there is another decision to be made. That
would be the design of the frame itself. Frames will
come in an assortment of finishes to allow you to
match the rest of your bathroom fixtures.
• And of course, the actual design of the enclosure itself.
They don't have to be the rectangular design that we
are used to seeing. You will be able to purchase and
install oval, circular, and many other unique and
• There are plenty of options available to allow you to craft the
bathroom of your dreams. Just make sure to do your
measurements properly and do your research. A good place to look
at options is a local hardware mega-store. You can also have a look
online, but for something this important, you probably want to be
able to see your options in person and be able to touch and feel the
