6 Benefits of Upgrading to a Frameless Glass Shower

A frameless glass shower enclosure is a luxurious addition to any home. Not only do they add value to your property, but they also provide a number of benefits over traditional framed showers. Here are the top six reasons you should consider upgrading to a frameless glass shower enclosure for your next bathroom renovation. 

More Light, Open Design

A bulky frame around a dated, hazy glass shower can block a lot of the natural light flow in your bathroom. With a frameless shower,  The lack of metal framing around the glass panels allows for more light to enter the shower, making the space feel more open and airy. This is especially beneficial in small bathrooms where every bit of extra light can help make the space feel larger. The thicker, clearer architectural glass shower will make your bathroom feel open and bright.

Easier to Clean

Cleaning the bathroom is never fun. The frameless glass shower door will make cleaning your shower easier and safer than with builder-grade framed designs. 

The lack of metal frames makes frameless shower enclosures easier to clean. There are no crevices for dirt and grime to accumulate, and the smooth surface of the glass makes it easier to clean and maintain.  With no metal or wood framing to trap soap scum and mildew, all you need is a squeegee and some soft cleaners to keep your shower looking sparkling and new. At Elite Showers, we have a number of coatings we can add to the glass to make it more resistant to hard water stains and soap scum.

Higher Resale Value

Elite Showers creates amazing-looking custom frameless shower enclosures that can add value to a home, making it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell.  Frameless showers offer a sleek, modern look, and frameless showers will help increase your home’s resale value.

So, if you’re planning on putting your home on the market in the near future, investing in a frameless glass shower enclosure is a smart move.

Customized Sizes

When they put in your old framed shower, they built the shower to be as close to a standard size as they could so they could use standard glass on the installation. Most likely, the glass does not fit your custom opening properly and the Plano home builder used the frame to hide their mistakes. If you have areas of buildup or water leakage, the standard glass forced into the custom opening is likely the issue.  At Elite Showers, we measure and have the glass cut to fit perfectly into your shower opening.  So whether you have a small alcove or a large walk-in shower, we can create a frameless glass enclosure that’s perfect for your needs and fits like a glove. 

Unlike traditionally framed showers which are limited by standard sizing, frameless glass showers can be customized to fit nearly any space. Whether you’re working with a large master bathroom or a small guest bathroom, we can create a frameless glass shower enclosure that will fit perfectly. Elite Showers has offices in Plano and McKinney, and we can have someone out to measure your shower opening the next day.

Endless Design Opportunities

If you are removing your old framed shower and doing a remodel, using frameless shower glass gives your designer endless options during design. No matter how wide or unique your shower is, we can cut frameless architectural glass to fit the opening.  There is no specific material to choose to suit the existing theme, as the bathroom may be remodeled using marble, granite or tile. 

From simple rectangular shapes to more complex Curved Glass Shower Enclosures, there’s a wide range of options available to suit any taste or budget. There’s really no limit to what you can do when you ditch the metal frame.

Your Bathroom Will Look More Spacious

Lastly, upgrading to a frameless glass shower enclosure will make your bathroom look more spacious. That’s because the lack of metal framing around the perimeter of the glass creates an illusion of more space. So if you’re looking for ways to make your small bathroom feel bigger, ditching your framed shower door in favor of a frameless option is a great place to start. Your bathroom will feel bigger than it is.

Overall, frameless shower enclosures offer a more modern and sophisticated look, are easier to clean and maintain, and are more durable than framed shower enclosures.
