Shower Trends

Experience the illusion of added room that a glass enclosure can create and turn your space into the bathroom of your dreams.   By exploring some of the latest shower trends and glass enclosures you can find options to help you add value to your home while creating a beautiful, safe, low-maintenance, durable, and stylish space.

Forget about the boring glass panel doors you’ll find at a big box hardware, instead transform your bathroom oasis with an attractive glass shower enclosure. You can maximize space, beauty, and functionality in your bathroom with these trendy glass shower options:

Clear Glass Shower Enclosure - curblessFrameless Shower Doors:  Gone are the clunky old shower doors of the past.  While shower glass doors encased in aluminum or vinyl frames were used for many years, recent trends have removed the unattractive and messy frames. No frame to clean means easy maintenance.  Frameless shower doors create clean lines and can blend in producing a more open aesthetic.

No-Threshold Showers: To curb or not to curb that’s the shower question.  For an ultra-modern, sophisticated, and convenient bathroom shower design, consider a curbless also known as no-threshold style shower.  These designs create seamless integration between your showering space and the rest of your bathroom.  Enclosed with frameless glass for a luxury look, these showers eliminate the need to step over a potentially hazardous and visually unappealing ledge.

If you decide to go curb-less, please keep in mind that there is nothing to prevent water from running out of the shower from below the door. Please make sure that your floor is properly sloped to encourage water to drain back into the shower, as opposed to draining to the outside of the shower. A small metal or stone dam strip can also be installed beneath the door to increase water retention.

Matte Black Hardware:  Matte black is the new thing when it comes to shower hardware.  Instead of shiny glossy hardware and fixtures, why not try the ultra-modern look of matte black.  Looking to create an upscale urban aesthetic, then matte black is for you.  Combine matte black hardware with a large clear glass shower enclosure to create a truly contemporary and sophisticated look. Ask us about the new US Horizon Sorrento series double sliding barn door style shower enclosures that is now available in the new, on trend, matte black finish!

Shower and Bath Separation:  Why be trapped in a bathtub shower combination fixture?  If your bathroom footprint allows, why not consider the current trend toward separating the tub from the shower to create a spa like feel.  Customize your bathroom oasis with a free standing tub in your chosen style paired with a beautiful frameless glass shower enclosure.

Now available in both single slide and double slide options.

Glass Shower Enclosure - Neo AngleUnique Layouts: Shower designs that embrace unique angles or spaces are gaining popularity, especially for home owners with bathrooms that have limited space but still require functionality and an appealing look.  This new approach to design creates a fresh upgrade to standard shower layouts.  With the dramatic edges of a diamond shaped shower to the curved lines of a quadrangle, you can create an elegant, trendy space you enjoy daily.
