Taking care of our hygiene is a habit that is endorsed by virtually everyone, save a few people. Simply put, we like to stay clean. It reflects nicely on us and increases our prospect of social interactions and human bonding.
In the past few centuries, the concept of grooming and self-care has sky-rocketed. We no longer have to worry about sanitation or access to clean water.
A means of keeping ourselves clean and groomed is showering. The designated showering spot in your house is a place where you spend a good amount of time.
Be it contemplating life, going over business deals or actually taking a bath, the sensation of letting go of your worries the moment you enter is unparalleled. In recent years, frameless showers are the new norm now and can now be found almost everywhere.
What are frameless showers?
Due to minimalistic design, the frameless shower does not require any sort of metal framing to keep it up. Essentially, this is literally an ‘enclosure’ which you walk into to take a shower.
Compared with normal showers, the aesthetic value of this is great and is often utilized. Albeit a bit expensive, it’s a good investment since there are minimal chances of any damaging.
Benefits of frameless showers
There are several benefits of using frameless showers. Here are a few you should consider if you’re looking to buy it!
- Aesthetic value
In general, we all crave a high-end look to our house. If there’s a possibility to upgrade a certain part of house at a price that is quite reasonable and pays off, why not go for it? Many people fancy a bathroom that resembles that of a luxurious spa. The addition of a frameless shower does exactly that.
- Compliments other elements
Color coordination and combination are key. Since most people use different and elegant tiles when designing the bathroom floors, they have to ensure that all focus is drawn to them and not away from there. Normal doors with panels often draw attention away which reflects poorly and turns out to be a bad investment.
However, frameless showers, owing to their transparency allow design enhancement and compliment different elements of the space.
- A good investment
Another reason to consider a frameless shower is that if you decide sometime in the future to sell your house, you’ll be able to fetch a much higher price compared to a house with a normal shower.
- Minimal maintenance
Since the majority of the structure is made of glass which is especially made to function in humid conditions, you don’t have to worry about disturbances or algae growing in corners. Cleaning will also be easy – all you need is a wiper!
- Added space
Not literally so but the illusion of having more space that normal adds to the charm of frameless showers! In terms of the whole space, your bathroom will appear bigger and better since the separation of the toilet with the shower space will no longer be there!

Thanks for saying that frameless shower screens can be minimally maintained since algae won’t grow and cleaning would be a breeze. I’m really looking for ideas to change my shower curtains. So, I might really consider this.

As a busy homeowner, the fact that frameless shower glass requires minimal maintenance really sounds attractive. I’d love to have a bathroom that won’t be a pain in the neck to clean all the time, and this material sounds like it can help me with that. I’ll go and look for a glass provider that offers frameless models and use them in my bathroom right away.
