Residential Glass: Different Types of Glass for Shower Doors
The shower is your place to relax, unwind, and recharge, and a pivotal part of the shower is the door. When installing shower doors, homeowners have a variety of glass types to choose from. In today’s blog, Springfield Glass Company shares the different types of glass for shower doors. Whether you’re in the process of selecting a new shower door or you just want to learn more about glass, we hope you enjoy the read.
Shower doors and enclosures are typically built from tempered glass, which differs from regular glass. If a tempered glass sheet breaks, it will shatter into many small pieces that aren’t as sharp and dangerous as regular glass.
While it’s unlikely that your shower door would break, it’s important to exercise caution and be prepared for the possibility. Selecting tempered glass for your shower door is a good way to ensure safety for you and your family.
Standard clear glass is made like window glass, but slightly thicker. This glass is a popular choice with traditional showers, creating high clarity and a minimal greenish tint. Clear glass is easy to clean and maintain.
Hammered glass doors feature a unique texture that resembles hammered metal, giving your bathroom a daring, fearless appearance. This type of glass looks amazing when light enters the shower.
If you’re seeking privacy while you rejuvenate, choose a frosted glass shower door, which blurs the view of what’s inside and outside of the shower enclosure. In addition to providing privacy, the many design options of frosted glass can add different colors to your oasis. Frosted glass also hides most fingerprints and watermarks.
Similar to frosted glass shower doors, rain glass doors create plenty of privacy in your bathroom. With texture on one side of the glass, the vertical design pattern makes it look like rain is falling.
Tinted glass may come in different tones and colors, such as grey, bronze, or black. This glass option is great for homeowners who want a fresh, distinctive bathroom. Dark tinted glass offers privacy and can perfectly match the color scheme of walls and cabinets.
