Maintenance Tips for Cabinet Glass Features

Kitchen cabinets

If you have glass cabinets, keeping them clean and maintaining them can be more difficult than traditional wood features. The most important maintenance tip for cabinet glass is a simple one: don’t break the glass. However, there is more that goes into the process, especially when it comes to keeping your cabinets looking great. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will take a look at a few maintenance tips for cabinet glass features.

Don’t Procrastinate

People don’t typically think of staining when it comes to cabinet glass, but glass stains are very real. With most glass cabinets being in the kitchen, it is very possible for your cabinet glass to become stained. The biggest mistake you can make with glass stains is to procrastinate when removing them. Stains can set in quickly and become more difficult to remove if you don’t take care of them quickly. If you see splatter or steam on your glass that could potentially stain, clean it immediately to prevent further damage.

Close Cabinets With Care

When you first get your new cabinets you will probably take great care of them, but as the weeks go by you might become less careful. When they’re brand new, you’ll be more likely to clean them regularly and be gentler with them. To prevent broken glass or damage to hinges and frames, you will want to close your cabinets carefully and avoid slamming them. Choosing quality cabinet door handles will help.

Use the Right Cabinet Glass Cleaners

If you want to keep your cabinet glass looking like new for months and years to come, you will need to clean it regularly. However, the careless cleaning it isn’t enough; you have to clean your glass the right way. Cheap, low-quality glass cleaners will lead to smudgy and foggy glass. Find the right glass cleaner to keep your glass looking brand new. Additionally, use the right materials to clean the glass. A cheap washcloth can smudge up your glass and even scratch it. Use soft cotton washcloths or even invest in high-quality microfiber cloth.

What Size Vanity Mirror Should You Buy?

Large vanity mirror

The vanity mirror is an important design element during a redesign or renovation of your bathroom. Aside from your shower, the vanity will be the feature piece in your bathroom, so making the right decision is crucial. However, it can be difficult finding a mirror that is the right style and size for your bathroom. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass takes a look at how to choose the perfect vanity mirror size for your bathroom.

What Sizes Are There?

The size of your vanity mirror will come down to whether or not you will be looking for a custom mirror or a traditional mirror. If you are looking for a customized mirror, sizing will be much easier. You will just need to decide what style you are looking for and how much room you have and go from there. However, if you aren’t looking for a custom-sized mirror, you’ll have to look at the traditional sizes.

The most common vanity mirrors will have widths of 20-25 inches. Anything under 20 inches is fairly uncommon and typically used as shower or wall mirrors. While 20-25 inch mirrors are the most common, 25-35 inch vanity mirrors are a great choice as well.

Single Or Double Vanity?

The sizing of your vanity mirrors will depend primarily on this question. If you just have one person regularly occupying your bathroom, there is no real need for double vanities. However, if you have a spouse or significant other sharing your bathroom, the decision becomes more complicated. Going with a single mirror will mean you’ll need a larger mirror, such as a wall-to-wall mirror. If you decide to go with double vanity mirrors, you can choose smaller sizes with more custom design features.

What Style Do You Want?

Style will also play a big factor in your sizing decision. One of the biggest design decisions you’ll make is one we have already talked about. Do you want single or double mirrors? If you go with double, you’ll have more flexibility stylistically. You will have other factors to consider as well, such as framed or frameless mirrors, mounting options, and mirror shapes.

Design Tips for Your Shower Doors

Glass shower door

Shower doors serve a very practical purpose for your bathroom, but they can be a valuable design element as well. Whether you are building a new home or simply renovating your bathroom, finding the right shower door can make a huge difference in the overall style of the space. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will take a look at a few design tips for your shower doors as well as trends that dominate this area.

Keep Overall Design In Mind

The most common mistake with shower doors, especially when it comes to the design of your bathroom, is picking a door that doesn’t go with the overall style of the bathroom. A sleek, frameless shower enclosure is a fantastic aesthetic element for your bathroom. But if the overall look of your bathroom or home is more Victorian or vintage, a frameless shower door will conflict with that overall design.

The important thing to do when picking out features like vanities or shower doors is to find pieces that are must-haves and design your bathroom around those. For instance, if you absolutely must-have a sleek, frameless shower, you need to design your bathroom around that.

Consider Frameless Shower Enclosures

If you are redesigning or renovating your bathroom, you should absolutely consider a frameless shower enclosure. They are on the cutting edge of design and are much easier to clean than regular shower doors. There isn’t a single design element that will be more beneficial to your bathroom design than a beautiful frameless shower enclosure. Much like a vanity, a frameless shower enclosure will be the centerpiece and set the tone of your bathroom.

Take Careful Measurements

Shower doors are one of the few things that people will elect to install themselves, so it’s important to take extra precautions with your measurements if you won’t have any professional help. The most common mistake made is not measuring correctly or failing to account for wall angles. If you have a full shower enclosure with walls, you must design a curb that allows your door to swing freely. If the angle of the door and the wall is not 90 degrees, it will be restricted.

Why Do Shower Doors Matter?

Why Are Shower Doors Important?

Glass shower door

When it comes to modern bathroom design, few things are as important as the shower door. And they aren’t just important because of the stylish design value they provide. Along with their aesthetic quality, they also serve a very practical function and are beneficial for things like your home value and sustainability. Today, Ryan’s All-Glass will explain why shower doors are important.

Home Value

Shower doors are also important because they increase the value of your home. While potential buyers might look at your yard or the kitchen before they look at the bathroom, there are few rooms that are more frustrating to renovate than the bathroom. A bad shower door and shower enclosure is a quick way to turn potential home buyers away. Nobody wants to buy a home that immediately requires renovations, and a badly designed shower requires exactly that.

Sustainability

Your shower can be the most difficult feature of your home to keep up to date and up to code. Mold can easily begin to sneak in if your shower isn’t taken care of correctly and with a damaged shower door, your shower can turn into a hazard. At the end of the day, you want your shower to be aesthetically appealing and built to last. Investing in a high-quality door will keep your shower sustainable, preventing you from spending big dollars on shower repairs.

Three Glass Maintenance Tips Before You Look for Glass Replacement

3 Glass Maintenance Tips Before You Look for Glass Replacement

Replacing sections in a custom glass design can be difficult, but the right maintenance steps can help you avoid this problem entirely. At Ryan’s All-Glass, we are dedicated to providing the best service and the best advice for our customers. In today’s blog from Ryan’s All-Glass, we discuss a few glass maintenance tips that can help avoid glass replacements and keep your custom glass features looking great.

1. Ryan’s all-glass Shower Guard

Ryan’s offers a special protective coating that seals the pores in the glass to prevent water staining and calcium build up. This coating has to be applied at the time of purchase to offer the best results.

2. Proper Cleaning

The most common reason why mirrors or glass features don’t last as long as they should is because they aren’t cleaned properly. Using a squeegee after every shower as well as regular cleaning any other glass features can cause them to deteriorate and look old and cloudy. However, this is a completely avoidable problem!

Use a clean microfiber cloth and gentle cleansing solution to remove dirt, dust and oils from your glass. Ryan’s all-glass sells a great glass cleaner, if you are on the hunt for the right product. This will keep your glass in the best shape possible and help you avoid glass replacement down the road.

3. Seek Advice From The Professionals

If you have damaged glass, you might not know whether or not you can repair it yourself or whether you need professional help. It can also be difficult to tell if you need a total glass replacement without the help of professionals like the Ryan’s all-glass team. Before seeking a total replacement or attempting a do-it-yourself repair, consult with a glass repair service provider like Ryan’s all-glass.

If you want to take your style a step further, you can choose a frameless glass shower design, which is a completely glass shower enclosure requiring no metal or plastic frames.
