10 Glass Types You Can Use For The Shower Door

Glass makers have developed a wide selection of glass for shower doors. Designers have drawn inspiration from water, existing architecture, and their individual creativity to develop some amazing glass types that can completely transform the mood of your shower. Let’s take a look at 10 different types of shower door glass.

  1. Clear Glass
    Clear glass is the least expensive type of glass to use for a shower door. It looks great, but does little to add any dramatic effect;
  2. Antique Glass
    Antique glass is created to be of varying thickness, giving it the appearance that the glass has moved and flowed over time;

  3. Rain Glass
    Rain glass really does look like rain as it’s running down a window pane. This is a unique touch if you wish to make your shower door feel like a rainforest;

  4. Bubble Glass
    Bubble glass has a million different-sized bubbles to simulate the feeling of being underwater. Yet another great unique touch to take your shower to another level;

  5. Bronze Tinted Glass
    Certain agents can be added to glass to give it colour. Shower glass can be tinted bronze, grey, or any other metallic material to add dramatic effect to your shower door;

  7. Reed Glass
    Reed glass is molded with embossed vertical reeds. It helps with privacy and adds a classic touch to your shower. Stripes in a bathroom add sophistication;

  8. Custom Embossed or Etched
    Glass doors can also be ordered with custom etched designs or embossed patterns to perfectly suit your design needs. There is no limit to the type of pattern or design that can be added to a glass door when you do custom ordering;

  9. Mitred Glass
    Mitered Glass is another type of glass that is an upgrade option for any type of shower door. When used with proper pivot hardware, mitred glass offers a water-tight and steam-proof enclosure;

  10. Bisselux Glass
    Bisselux is an unusually textured glass used for shower doors. The available image is not a physical piece of glass, perhaps it’s seldom seen in Singapore. You may want to check with your service provider about this.

For reading thus far, here’s an additional bit to knowing what goes into your home shower room. Glass shower doors range in thickness from 3/8 inches, 1/3 inches, up to 1/4 inches. For tall shower doors, the glass is recommended to be 1/2 inches thick for optimum stability.

Whatever type of glass you choose, you are sure to be happy with the results. There are glass types to suit any kind of bathroom decor and ambience.
