A few months ago, I realized that I really needed to update our windows and a few other glass fixtures around the house. I started searching for a great glass shop in the area, and I was able to find a place that I felt really good about. I worked with them to replace our mirrors, our glass shower enclosures, and our windows. When we were finished, our house looked and felt brand new on the inside and the outside. I was really impressed with how much of a difference those changes made. This blog is all about installing better glass in your home.
Have you wanted to transform your bathroom for a while but don't know where to get started? If you don't have the time or energy to swap out everything all at once, why not at least start with what is considered the centerpiece of most bathrooms—the bathtub or shower area. Changing things up from a traditional tub-and-curtain setup to a shower with a glass enclosure can give your entire bathroom a new feel, even without any additional changes. Here are a few reasons why you might want to start looking at glass shower enclosures.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Cost is of course always a big consideration when it comes to remodeling or renovating any part of your home. You can help justify the cost, though, if you know that the new addition will lead to a permanent increase in the value of your house. A glass shower enclosure certainly fits this description. Glass enclosures have long been considered a premium feature that is sought out by home buyers. The investment you are making today could pay off in the future if you ever decide to sell your home. Even if you aren't planning on selling, just knowing that you will have this increased value and premium experience available to you for years to come can feel quite satisfying.
If your current bathroom doesn't have the best lighting, you might end up squinting every time you take a shower. The closed curtain will likely block a good portion of the incoming light, causing you to shower in less-than-ideal conditions. A glass enclosure allows light to pass through, allowing you much greater visibility while you are scrubbing away. If you frequently shave or do any kind of extended body grooming in the shower, the extra visibility will likely be quite welcome.
Make the Room Feel Larger Without Knocking Down a Wall
While the improved visibility you will receive while inside the shower is a big perk, the ability to see into the shower can also benefit you in another way. If your current bathroom feels a bit cramped with a tub and curtain, being able to see to the back of the shower can have a notable effect on how big the room feels. Even if you get frosted glass for increased privacy, you'll still be able to make out a hint of the wall on the other side, making the entire area feel larger.
