Incredible master bathroom with Carrara marble tile surround.Purchasing and building your home is an exciting adventure. Every day brings new steps required to complete your journey and claim those coveted keys. Yet, setting aside all the construction, paperwork and procedures, one of the most rewarding things about buying a home is getting to decide what goes inside of it. Whether you are scoping a new bathroom from the tile floor up or putting the finishing touches on an almost-finished design, it’s an ideal time to consider the benefits of a glass shower door.

Any bathroom construction project requires many decisions, and a glass shower door is among them. Other factors you might need to carefully consider include:

  • Selecting the perfect mirror to place above the sink (we can help here, too, though we’ll save that topic for a future blog post!
  • Customizing cabinets to provide ample space for your towels, soap, shampoo and other accessories
  • Making the bathroom accessible to people of all sizes, for those who have children
  • Keeping the space well ventilated, such as with a fan, windows or both, to avoid harboring mold and mildew
  • Creating opportunities for the space to be filled with natural light, providing you and your guests with a bright and inviting environment

Whatever decisions remain on your punch list, we can assure you that choosing a glass shower door has multiple perks that can make your new-construction experience a success. In no particular order, here are reasons a glass shower door can be perfect for you.

Reason 1: A glass shower door complements glass throughout other places in your house

Let’s be clear: Glass has numerous beautiful applications throughout a home. We’ve found that our locally sourced, custom-cut glass can be a great fit for mirrors, kitchen backsplashes, crystal-clear shelves and more. If you’re looking to build a light and airy feel into your home, with glass tying together each room, a glass shower door can be an excellent fit for your bathroom.

Few things say luxury like a custom-made door that invites ample and comforting natural light into your shower.

Reason 2: A glass shower door brings movement and focus into your bathroom

There’s something incredibly appealing about the aesthetics of a glass shower door. With this kind of door, you don’t need a crinkly plastic curtain. Instead, you can replace that old-fashioned design touch with a modern sliding door that draws the eye of residents and guests alike to its motion and design.

Whether your bathroom is spacious and open-concept or small and compact, a sliding door can help you make use of every square foot. Its basic side-to-side movement makes entering and exiting easy for people of any age who might use your shower.

And if you’re like us, the sound of a sliding glass shower door moving back and forth on its track is more than a little soothing. What can we say? We’re big fans of this bathroom setup!

Reason 3: A glass shower door keeps water where it belongs

A well-designed shower door also prevents water from escaping your shower and getting onto the surrounding floor. That’s been a universal problem since the invention of the shower curtain, but it’s no match for a fitted shower door that nests into place and keeps your shower sealed off from the surrounding room. After all: Water belongs in your shower, not in a pool that damages your floor.

Safety is another important consideration when constructing your shower. By some estimates, there are more than 230,000 nonfatal bathroom injuries annually in the U.S., including those caused by slips and falls. A glass shower door can help keep your floors dry and further limit the risk of an accident. It’s hard to put a price on peace of mind.

Reason 4: A glass shower door can convert your bathroom into a spa

Sure, some bathrooms are pedestrian. Yet, if you’re seeking a space that’s a cut above the rest, consider investing in the spa experience. In particular, we’re partial to the steamer door, which can transform any bathroom into a luxurious retreat. The semi-frameless shower door makes this experience possible. It comes with lighter glass plus popular hardware finishes for an attractive final product.

Whether you’re looking forward to unwinding at the end of a busy day at work or excited to kick each morning off in style, a steamer door can make it so. We encourage any homeowner trying to decide on the best shower door to browse our online photo galleries and imagine what their bathroom space will look like upon completion. Dream a little, and don’t be afraid to ask us questions. We’ve helped with many, many new construction projects and are happy to share our experiences to ensure you find the right glass shower door for your home.

Reason 5: A glass shower door brings international appeal stateside

Many of our customers love to travel and explore new places. So, whether you’re a fan of European culture or simply seek a getaway from the ordinary, a European frameless shower door might be just right for you. This glass shower door features heavy tempered glass that’s modern and easy to clean.
