All About Frameless Shower Doors
Bathroom remodels are exciting for homeowners. You have the opportunity to turn your bathroom into a place you’ve always dreamed of. If you’ve always wanted the sleek, modern look with glass doors and beautiful mirrors, now is a great time to install these features. Glass components for bathrooms are customizable, flexible for any budget, and family-safe.
Here’s everything you should know about installing frameless shower doors in your home.
Creating the Illusion of Space in the Bathroom
Frameless shower doors are so popular because they create a greater sense of space in the bathroom. Even the smallest of areas can benefit. The glass used for bathrooms reduces glare but still helps lighten up the space. Traditional shower frames use metal or rubber. You can certainly pick a customized frame as well, but these can be bulky if you’re already working with a small space.
Choosing to go frameless opens up the room, creating a floating effect, which makes your whole bathroom look light and airy. Frames and ceramics can weigh a small bathroom down even more. By installing a frameless shower door, and a custom made mirror, you can change the whole look of your bathroom.
If your bathroom remodel includes wall tiles, a glass shower enclosure and the frameless door can really enhance the look of the new tilework.
Safety and Cleanliness
The glass installed in bathrooms is chemically treated to withstand wear and tear in a process called tempering. So if you have a family bathroom, there’s no need to worry - glass shower doors are safe.
Even if it does break, the treatment on the glass ensures that it will break into small square pieces rather than huge jagged edges, so that no one gets injured. Of course, it’s best to have a safety talk with any kids in the house if you’re installing glass in the bathroom, but quality glass from certified shops can last years, even decades.
Plus, glass doors are actually safer in your bathroom. Mold doesn’t grow on glass. It’s why many choose to install additional glass splashes behind the sink and around the tub. Woods, ceramic, or other doors in the bathroom are prone to water damage and mold growth, whereas glass protects you from both.
Lastly, frameless glass shower doors are treated to be fingerprint and smudge-proof. That doesn’t mean it’s entirely resistant to everything, but it does stain less than your window glass, for example. Cleaning glass is much easier than cleaning other materials.

I was more than pleased
I was more than pleased when I contacted your company to help with a shattered sliding glass door in the sun room. I contacted your team via internet form in the morning. I received a call that afternoon and your people came out to give me a quote the next day. The following day, he came to do the repair. Thanks for your teams reliability, efficiency, and expertise!
I Refer More Than Glass
I bought a large piece of glass (4'x9') to cover our kitchen table. They offered options for the edge and corners and had my glass ready in a couple of days. I picked it up and they helped me load it in my vehicle. Whenever someone asks where we got the glass, I refer them to More Than Glass. Very happy with the product and service.
