Today’s Hottest Shower Door Trends
If you’re in the market for a new glass shower door, you don’t have to make do with ordinary glass enclosures. You can transform your bathroom into a more beautiful, functional space with a trendy shower door. Take note of the most popular shower door trends of 2017:
- Frameless shower doors: Typical sliding shower doors are hung on aluminum or vinyl frames that have an outdated, boxy look to them. When compared to the sleek showers you see in design magazines and five-star hotels, ordinary shower enclosures look drab and old fashioned. To avoid this, you need a frameless swinging shower door, which eliminates the borders around each panel and gives your shower a seamless, cohesive aesthetic.
- Transparent shower doors: Showers from the 90s and earlier tend to have opaque glass. This is good for privacy, but it looks dingy. Modern shower door trends lean toward transparent glass, which provides a sleeker, brighter, more spacious appearance and allows you to show off custom shower tile.
- Custom glass shower door designs: For the privacy you want without dingy opaque glass, consider a shower door with custom decorative etched glass. You can create any design you want, from geometric squares and stripes to mountain scenery to ocean waves. This makes your shower become a piece of art in the bathroom.
- Spacious shower enclosure: Shower/tub combinations aren’t trendy in 2017. If you have space, a freestanding soaking tub and spacious shower enclosure are much more aesthetically pleasing. In the shower, luxurious yet sustainable features, such as a low-flow rainfall shower head, make getting ready each morning a spa-like experience.
- Curbless showers and linear drains: For ease of access and a wildly trendy look, consider a curbless shower with a frameless shower door made of transparent or custom-etched glass and a linear floor drain. This combination is taking American bathrooms by storm in 2017! A curbless, frameless shower looks like a completely integrated part of the bathroom, with a transparent enclosure, no ledge to step over, and no obvious floor drain.
