One of the key elements of any luxury bathroom is the shower. For many people, the shower is where they start each day, which means it can truly help you get off to a great start. A bad shower can make you hate your bathroom and your starts to every morning.
Most experts agree that when you decide you will remodel your bathroom, you should make your shower and the shower enclosure one of the first items you decide on. After all, your choice will affect much of how you design the rest of your bathroom. While it’s understandable to want to focus on the fixtures, flooring and hardware first, the enclosures and shower doors in Laramie, WY are key design elements that can dictate the flow of the rest of the room. So while the enclosure will likely be one of the last items installed, it should actually be one of the first items you decide on.
Here are a few considerations you should keep in mind when deciding what type of enclosure design you want to put into your bathroom, and how you will implement it:
- Know what you’re looking for: If you do not have much design or remodeling experience, it might be difficult to know what should factor into your shower door or enclosure choice. In general, you want the enclosure to look like it was made with the home, built to be for that specific room, even if it wasn’t. If it looks like it was taken out of a catalogue and installed with little thought to the rest of the design of your home or bathroom, then it really won’t add much to your bathroom, even if it’s a high-quality item. In fact, it could detract from the overall look of the space.
- Work with a professional: The more options for customization and the more design intricacies a shower door or enclosure has, the better idea it is to work with a professional to get it installed. If you are at all unsure about your capabilities, you don’t want to mess around with glass.
- Choose from frameless or framed: Shower doors and enclosures come in two primary categories: framed and frameless. The one you choose depends on the type of aesthetic you’re going for in your bathroom, the thickness and heaviness of the glass you’re using and the overall shape and size of the opening you have to work with. Framed enclosures and doors are typically easier to work with, as they are more forgiving both in terms of installation and measurements. However, using a frameless enclosure can provide a higher-end, customized look that you might not be able to get from a framed one.
