Replacing a custom glass enclosure in a bathroom

Reasons to Install a Glass Shower Enclosure in Your Bathroom

We’ve all had dreams of renovating our bathrooms into something breathtaking and there isn’t a piece more eye-catching than your shower. Whether it’s a tub-shower hybrid or walk-in shower, there’s no reason this focal point can’t make your bathroom look great.

Installing a glass enclosure around your shower is a great way to increase the “wow” factor of your home. We here at All-West Glass have provided custom glasswork and glass replacement for many homes in the surrounding Edmonton area. Keep reading to find out more about how you can add beauty to your home with an enclosed shower.


1. Custom glass promotes a sophisticated aesthetic
Having an enclosed glass shower as opposed to a dark and flowing shower curtain creates an air of sophistication for your bathroom. Having a translucent enclosure around your shower makes the entire room feel more open and spacious than a shower with a curtain. It creates a feeling that your shower isn’t in a narrow and confined space—even if it is. Not only does it immediately fancy up your home, but you can also have your pick of the litter when you have your shower enclosure completely customized to your exact specifications.

2. Glass is easy to clean
Cleaning your shower can be a pain. Unlike typical shower curtains, a custom glass enclosure is incredibly easy to clean. All you need is to wipe it down with some cleaner and you’re finished! You won’t have any problems with the smooth, flat surface of your new custom glass.

3. It protects from shower spray
One of the worst parts about having a loose shower curtain is all the water that gets on the floor. Glass doors, however, close and seal themselves off from the rest of your bathroom. This will prevent water seeping into your tiles and from causing serious damage over time. This is particularly useful if you have young children in your house that might not be so concerned about water sprayed all over the floor.

4. Glass can be custom fit for any space restrictions
It doesn’t matter what shape or size your shower is. At All-West Glass, we can customize your panes to fit any specifications. Call our offices for a consultation to find out what we can do for you.
