Why Go With A Frameless Shower Door?

Frameless shower doors are the new trend in today’s bathrooms and it’s no surprise why. Besides the elegant look of a frameless shower door, there are a number of advantages when going with this new trend. Here we will highlight a few of these advantages that make getting a frameless shower door from Classic Mirror and Glass the smart choice!

Frameless shower doors can be customized

Most frameless shower doors are custom glass doors, which means you aren’t limited to mass-produced shower doors at a standard size. This adds more flexibility to your shower installation. In fact, customization is one of the important factors in purchasing a frameless shower door. One thing you must keep in mind when going with a custom shower door is that once the custom sized doors are made and the glass is cut, it can be very costly to change your mind on the shape and size midway though the project.

Frameless shower doors look better

Framed shower doors tend to look bulky because the edges are covered in rubber, metal or some other form of a seal. Frameless shower doors don’t have those eyesore additions, giving the shower a clean, fresh look. They are both beautiful and elegant and made of pure glass instead of having a heavy frame surrounding the door.

If your bathroom remodel includes a beautiful, intricate shower tile design, the frameless glass shower door can also help to showcase it.

Frameless shower doors minimize mold risks

Frameless shower doors minimize the number of places water can collect and mold can grow in your shower.

With framed shower doors, you run the risk of water build-up underneath the door’s seals, allowing mold and mildew to form. Frameless shower doors don’t have these risky areas. They also are easier to keep clean.

What Are Commercial Mirrors?

What washroom or lobby would be complete without commercial mirrors to add to the total experience. Whether it is commercial mirrors or restroom mirrors we have them in many different makes and designs. Some areas in a residence or business have special needs in mind. The size or placement of mirrors have a lot to do with the task that they are intended to address. In a common restroom a mirror serves as an aid to simple grooming. Special needs customers may need an Adjustable Tilt Mirror to facilitate wheel chair users or smaller people. These mirrors help visibility by tilting a full 6″ and then return to a regular position when desired. Fixed Angle Tilt Mirrors taper from the top to extend 4″ to 1″ at the bottom to serve the same purpose but without the need to manually tilt back and forth.

Types of Commercial Mirrors

  • Adjustable Tilt Mirror
  • Angle Frame Mirror
  • Channel Frame Mirror
  • Fixed Angle Tilt Mirror
  • Frameless Stainless Steel Mirror
  • Framed Stainless Mirror
  • Tempered Glass Mirrors
  • Stainless Steel Channel Mirror
  • ADA Handicap Accessible Mirrors
  • Custom Size Mirrors
  • Mirrors with Shelves

Mirrors come in both glass and stainless steel components for safety and vandal resistant needs. Models come in Channel Framed Mirrors and Angle Framed Mirrors to suit the different needs of the business or residence as well as frameless models. Shelves are available beneath the mirror is wanted along with sturdy 18 and 20 gauge type 304 stainless steel reflective surfaces. These surfaces offer full reactivity without the dangers and vulnerabilities of glass. This s perfect for remote, low-maintenance and high traffic areas and can add vanity and utility to any room, not only the washroom, bathroom or lavatory.

4 Bathroom Design Trends

When you’re ready to create the bathroom of your dreams, it’s no time to chase fads. You want design trends with enduring appeal, concepts that blend luxury, beauty, sensibility and eco-friendliness. Striking the perfect balance between indulgence and practicality can result in a bathroom where you’ll happily spend time getting ready to face the world or decompressing after a busy day.

As you’re planning your bathroom remodel, here are four 2017 bathroom design trends that are as smart as they are luxurious and lovely:

Rediscover Cork

cork flooring

Chances are, if cork is already present in your home, it’s part of a bulletin board or nestled in the neck of your favorite bottle of wine. However, cork has many advantages as a design material, and it’s especially appealing in modern bathrooms.

Cork is a beautiful natural material. With a wide variety of colors, grains and textures, each piece of cork is a unique work of natural art. It’s naturally water resistant (although not water proof) and anti-microbial, so it combats mold and mildew in bathrooms. As a flooring material, it’s soft, warm texture is friendly to bare feet.

Finally, cork is exceptionally sustainable; it’s renewable, recyclable and biodegradable, and cork trees need not be cut down in order to harvest the material.

Wall-mount Toilets

Mounting a toilet on the wall allows greater design flexibility, and makes cleaning beneath and around the fixture easy. Great in any size bathroom, wall-mount toilets work particularly well in smaller spaces to create an uncluttered and open visual effect.

Daylighting

natural daylightingDaylighting uses natural light from multiple sources to illuminate a space. It has been around for a while, and this is the year to welcome the trend into your bathroom. Incorporating natural light into a bathroom can help reduce electricity consumption, improve visibility, positively affect your mood, balance your internal clock and increase your home’s resale value.

Windows are the most common way to bring sunlight into a room. If your bathroom has an exterior wall that’s lacking a window, consider adding one. Windows with glass blocks or simple frosting on panes can allow you to enjoy sunlight while retaining privacy.

Skylights and tubular skylights are another tactic for bringing daylight into a bathroom. For rooms with direct roof access, professional skylight installation can be a cost-effective way to daylight the room. For ground-floor powder rooms and second-floor bathrooms with an attic above them, tubular skylights use reflective tubes and mirrors to transmit sunlight from the roof into the room.

Frameless Shower Doors

Frameless Glass Shower EnclosureFrameless shower doors have been trending toward larger and luxurious for some time now on the bathroom design scene. For a shower that truly stands out in terms of visual impact and luxurious experience, consider going frameless. Another bathroom design concept that’s popular abroad, modern shower doors eliminate the metal frame, enhance accessibility, make cleaning easier and create a more expansive shower experience.

The average mid-range bathroom remodel recoups more than 65 percent of its value upon resale, according to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report. By choosing design trends that combine good sense with luxurious style, you can create a bathroom that will enhance your enjoyment of your home while increasing your home’s value.

What Is A Frameless Glass Shower Door?

Unlike traditional shower doors, frameless glass shower doors are just just that…..- frameless. 

Because they don’t have a metal frame, the glass is thicker, usually ¼ inch thick or greater. With the heavier and thicker glass, they will slide better on their tracks for better operation. Frameless Glass Shower Doors also create a more upscale look than a glass door with a frame.

Another benefit, is that they are easier to clean. Without a frame, there is less chance of soap or debris deposits. Just a simple swipe with a squeegee after your shower, is enough to keep the glass clean.

Bath Crashers

As contractors, we always want the public to hire us to do the job the right way. Safe, up to code and built to last using quality products. We do however enjoy an occasional DYI show or two. DYI shows inspire people to want to have work done to their homes. Sure it sometimes educates you enough to do it yourself, taking us out of the equation but it also helps the phone ring on our end. It’s never as easy as it looks on TV and sometimes doing it yourself cost more money in the long run, especially if mistakes were made or the wrong product was used.
