Custom Glass Shower Doors - The Latest in Fashionable Homes

Custom Glass Shower Doors - The Latest in Fashionable Homes

Custom-made glass shower doors are in great demand today, owing to the fact that more and more people are opting for smart, chic and compact shower cubicles in their homes. Not only do shower cubicles enhance the look of a bathroom, but also offer privacy and comfort in very little space. Glass shower doors are available in different styles - foldable, sliding, etc. They are popular as they very efficiently replace shower curtains.

Glass shower doors are made of different materials - aluminium, plexi-glass, plastic and foam to name a few. Aluminium and plastic doors are by far the cheapest. As the materials are readily available, they doors are very inexpensive. Aluminium and plastic doors are very durable and water-resistant. They are invulnerable to weathering or corrosion. However, they do not look very appealing. In fact, sometimes, they even look quite cheap and flimsy.

Alternatives are plexi-glass, clear glass, fibre glass and the slightly more expensive 'smart-glass'. Glass imparts a rich and posh look to shower stalls, while proving to be just as effective as aluminium or plastic doors. Smart-glass is also called 'e-glass'. This type of glass can change it's optical transmission when a current is passed through it. Simply, the glass can switch from opaque to transparent or translucent and vice-versa at the flick of a switch or the push of a button!
