Glass shower doors provide elegance and value to your bathroom. They give a modern and stylish vibe to your bathroom. And at the same time, they are low maintenance because they are so easy to clean, unlike your typical framed shower door. 

If you have a smaller bathroom with a bathtub, a glass bath enclosure can help lighten the ambience of the room. Glass shower doors make the bathroom seem wider. On the other hand, if you have a large bathroom, a custom glass shower door will be the ultimate piece to give your bathroom space a more polished style.

What are my options?

If you would like to install glass shower doors in your bathroom, choose from several options. There are regular glass shower doors, frameless glass shower doors, custom glass shower doors and bright glass shower doors. Let’s look into them one by one.

Complete glass enclosure

You can opt to enclose your shower entirely in glass. Having a glass-enclosed shower creates steam. And when there’s moisture inside the glass-enclosed shower, it makes clean lines that give a stunning look. In the past few years, this has been one of the most popular choices. 

Frameless glass shower doors

These glass shower doors are usually sliding doors. They provide a minimalist yet visually appealing look. In addition, they are typically partnered with heavy-duty stainless steel for a more contemporary appearance.

Mprint decorative glass

Mprint is one of the newest technology options, and it allows you to create elegant and precise glass effects. It’s an innovative technology that can print designs, patterns and logos at a very high resolution that can be directly applied to glass showers. 


Dip-Tech uses digital glass printers, ceramic inks, and imaging processing software for various printed glass applications. Digital ceramic glass printing is used not only for design purposes but also for extra privacy and insulation.

Smart glass

If you are tech-savvy and a fan of sci-fi films, smart glass is the best option for you. It gives you the classic open look, but the glass shower can provide you with complete privacy with the flip of a switch. In addition, smart glass can transform from opaque to dark grey and vice versa in just a few seconds. You can also sync smart glass with your favourite conversational AIs, Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri. 

Farmhouse style shower enclosures

This homey yet straightforward style is now gaining more popularity. And if you are looking at having your farmhouse-style bathroom, there are eight design elements you need to consider. Here’s a checklist:

  • Make it look like a spare room
  • Install minimal accessories
  • Have a stand-alone bathtub
  • Use repurposed furniture
  • Use wood and glass 
  • Patinated finishes
  • Vintage lighting
  • Make it simple

How about the size and colour?

The standard height of glass shower doors is between 74 to 80 inches. But, you can customize the height of the shower glass doors to any size.

There are various colours to choose from, such as oil rubbed bronze, brushed nickel and stainless. If you have a custom design or theme, you can also have the glass shower doors personalized by using a powder coating.
