Selecting the right hardware for your glass shower enclosure
Selecting the right hardware for your glass shower enclosure involves consideration of two things: function.and form.
Did you know the hardware is more robust for frameless glass shower enclosure designs? There’s a very good reason for this. Framed enclosures rely upon the frame to supply support for the glass. However, since frameless enclosures don’t have a frame for support, they must rely on the hardware. Additionally, the glass in a frameless enclosure is thicker, thus heavier, again for more stability. So it’s crucial to select the correct hardware for each particular installation.
Custom glass shower enclosures are simply beautiful, in part because of the properties of glass. It lets in more light, creating a brighter, more refreshing environment. Also it allows for a clear view, giving the room a larger and more airy feeling. But what ties it all together with the rest of your décor is the hardware.
When it comes to form you have a lot of choices available. After allowing for function, you can design your enclosure based on your theme, and/or colour scheme. Glass shower hardware is durable and made for daily use in a wet environment. So choose from metals like stainless steel, chrome, nickel, brass or bronze, none of which will rust. Select from a variety of finishes, too. Which appeals to your eye, a gleaming shine or flat matte?
