‘We are making progress on our master bath remodel. There are so many decisions to make regarding tile, colors, vanities, tubs, showers and more that it can be overwhelming. I really want to make choices that will enhance our home, add value and functionality. Having built our home, I have been through this before. At that time there were so many decisions to make about everything it definitely got overwhelming, and there was no internet or Pinterest to help with great images or inspiration. So last I updated we chose our tile and now I have picked our shower doors. I like the way clear shower doors look in pictures but to tell you the truth, I do not think they would suit our bathroom. First off, my bathroom is large but when you walk in you look straight across to the shower. If the glass were totally clear it would be the first thing you see and there would be no privacy if someone accidentally walked in on someone showering. Also, if the shower was not perfectly arranged I think it would look messy because the clear glass shows everything. I also think the clear glass would be tiresome to take care of because of the spots and streaks that would show if you were not meticulous.
I love frameless doors but I decided on frosted glass and I am very comfortable with my decision.
Even after deciding on the glass there were other decisions on the doors to make such as the finish on the door trim and whether I wanted a sliding door or one that opens out. I chose the sliding option just because I would be afraid of my little ones coming in and slamming it accidentally and I know it would make me a wreck.
The sliding option cost more but not as much as my sanity. There were only 2 choices for the trim and I chose the stainless steel over chrome, again pricier but I think easier to care for and more high-end than chrome which is fitting of a master bath.
The company I dealt with for the shower components was Vigo Industries and they were excellent and the gentleman that assisted me was helpful and answered all my questions. He even preferred the frosted glass as well which made me feel even more secure with my choice. So what are your thoughts on shower doors? Do you have clear glass frameless? Do you love or hate them or have a love, hate relationship with them? Do you have frosted frameless doors? Are you happy with them or do you regret having picked them? Share your thoughts with me on the comments for this post and keep following because we are going to cover every step of the way the progress of our bathroom and show you from start to finish how our bathroom comes together in our curb appeal series.
