Bringing the beauty of a shower’s interior design out into the bathroom can provide an attractive feature that enhances the overall style. Frameless Shower enclosures help to do this, with this style of shower typically made of thicker safety glass that does not need a frame for support. The greater expanse of glass results in a clean, contemporary appearance that lets the attraction of the shower enclosure shine through.
The neo angle shower enclosure style is designed for use in a corner location in a bathroom. It comes in a five-sided diamond shape which incorporates two walls of the bathroom, a glass door opposite the corner and a glass panel either side of the door to form the enclosure. The diamond shape provides a decorative appearance and using this in combination with a frameless enclosure provides an attractive finish. While neo angle enclosures can be used in any size of bathroom, they can be an effective option for a smaller bathroom, where setting the enclosure in a corner location helps to leave a little more space elsewhere in the room. This can provide a more practical layout.
Glass is a common material used in the bathroom and installing a glass shower enclosure provides a few advantages. Using glass avoids closing of the shower enclosure from view and this helps to create a more open style. This can be particularly useful in smaller bathrooms. Glass is also easy to care for and a frameless enclosure makes this easier.
A common problem with framed glass enclosures is the build up of mold and mildew in the gaps between frame and glass. A frameless enclosure removes this problem, making for a more hygienic shower enclosure. A frameless enclosure also uses thicker safety glass and this results in a safer enclosure that is less likely to suffer damage or cause an accident.
For those that want to keep the central area of a bathroom as open and spacious as possible, a corner shower enclosure makes a good choice. These typically come in a variety of standard shapes to provide homeowners with a choice of looks. Common options include a square enclosure, as well as more decorative shapes, such as curved quadrant and neo angle enclosures.
For those looking for a more individual and unique appearance there is also the option of a custom corner enclosure. These can provide a more accurate fit, as well as providing more options in terms of the final shape and style of the enclosure. Corner enclosures come in a variety of materials with glass, acrylic, and fiberglass enclosures some of the common styles available.
A clawfoot tub shower enclosure provides a stylish, antique appearance for a bathroom. This style of tub is set on short legs and can be positioned freestanding in the middle of bathroom, against a wall, or in a corner location. Installing a shower enclosure around the tub provides the benefit of having a shower and bathtub combined. The enclosure is usually created by setting an oval rod above the clawfoot tub, such that a shower curtain can be closed around it to contain the water. The flexibility of having a shower and bathtub is something that many people like, and the clawfoot tub/shower is one of the most stylish and attractive set ups to achieve this.
While many people use a shower purely for bathing, the shower styles available these days can provide more than this. A steam shower enclosure incorporates a generator that can produce steam to create a sauna like experience. The enclosures come in a few different styles with smaller modular enclosures featuring a prefabricated design, which is basically ready to be set in place in a bathroom. These can be used standing up, although many include a seat to provide a little more comfort.
Larger custom shower enclosures provide more space to include seats and benches for comfort, and these provide more flexibility in terms of the shape of the enclosure and the fixtures to use. While steam shower enclosures can be used in the same manner as a regular shower, the luxury of being able to have a steam shower makes them a good choice for the home.
Shower enclosures are a practical and attractive addition to a bathroom and the styles available enable homeowners to find a look that matches the décor and layout of a bathroom. A frameless shower enclosure is a popular option and the look and style of this works well with many of the shower types on the market, from a standard corner enclosure to a luxurious steam shower.
