Glass Shower Enclosure Design Ideas

Many homeowners request glass shower enclosures because they are easy to maintain and attractive. Some enclosures include both a glass door and wall. Others are doorless with a glass surround that may be made from glass blocks or etched glass to provide privacy. Custom designs allow you to use your imagination to create the kind of shower you will most enjoy.
