If you want to add a new shower enclosure to your bathroom, there are a variety of options and factors to consider. You need to know what type of shower door you want, what style design you are looking for, and whether or not you want custom options. The factors to consider vary from aesthetic to practical considerations, and it’s vital to understand the details. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass evaluates what you should look for in a new shower enclosure.
One popular bathroom design trend is the frameless shower enclosure. Frameless options, specifically with the Dublin frameless series from Ryan’s all-glass, offer flexibility with shape, size, and pattern, making it an extremely customizable shower design. If your bathroom doesn’t have typical dimensions or you’re simply looking for a unique shower door, our Dublin series is the perfect solution. Besides the customization options, frameless shower doors have a sleek and minimalistic look that gives your bathroom a more modern feel.
Another factor to consider when choosing a shower enclosure is how the door will open. There are several ways a shower door can open, from swinging doors to sliding doors. Sliding shower doors are the most common. But when it comes to customized showers, swinging doors are becoming more popular. Sliding doors are typically the standard unless you are upgrading your bathroom. Ryan’s all-glass works with both sliding and swinging doors, giving you more flexibility when installing a new shower. When choosing the way your shower door opens, the dimensions and layout of your bathroom play a pivotal role. A sliding door might make more sense if a swinging door would hit a wall, sink, or toilet.
Tub or No Tub?
A wild card consideration for a new shower enclosure is whether or not to include a tub. Most showers that include a bathtub don’t typically have an enclosure. They merely utilize a curtain. If your enclosure will have a tub, you can eliminate most frameless options from consideration. However, you can still use a semi-frameless enclosure and even a sliding door if you don’t want a curtain alone.

If you own your home, there is a good chance that you will, at some point, sell it and move into another home. When it comes time to sell your home, you want it to have increased in value from when you first bought it. So, how can you accomplish this goal?
A great way to increase home value is by investing in renovations and additions to your home, which may be as extensive as a complete remodel or as simple as adding a custom glass feature. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will look at why a custom glass piece is a good value for your home.
Custom Glass Looks Better
Plain and simple, custom glass pieces look better than ordinary glass pieces. The single biggest benefit of a custom piece is the aesthetic improvement that it will provide for your home. Regardless of the size or scope of the project, customizing the materials will improve the aesthetic appeal of the final results. Better yet, you can customize a wide variety of features, from small things like mirrors to large scale projects like cabinets or bars.
Custom Pieces Add Value
The best way to improve the value of your home is to update your design. This can be tricky because trends change often, so it’s important to keep those trends in mind when adding custom glass. The master bathroom and the kitchen are among the rooms that will have the biggest impact on a buyer being interested in your home, and custom glass features can be a great selling point. Pieces like custom shower doors, vanity mirrors, or cabinets will make your home stand out from the rest.
Custom Glass Makes Renovations Easier
One of the most difficult aspects of major renovations or updates is lining out the dimensions. When it comes to kitchens or bathrooms, you only have a certain amount of space. Particularly with bathrooms, you lose space when you are forced to use standardized glass features for your vanity or shower. However, with custom glass pieces, you have more flexibility and you can open up space more easily.

Just like any room in your home, your bathroom has lots of interior design potential. If you are planning on selling your home in the future, investing in your bathroom will help you build home value. However, to do that, you need to be caught up on interior design trends. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass we will give you three shower enclosure trends that will transform your bathroom.
1. Frameless Shower Enclosures
One of the biggest bathroom trends that has carried over for years from 2017 to 2019 is that of frameless shower enclosures. Ryan’s all-glass was the first glass company to offer European frameless showers in Cincinnati. These showers look much sleeker than other enclosures with no metal to distract you from your tilework. A frameless shower enclosure is also easier to keep clean and free of mildew. These enclosures are great for all homes, no matter your style.
2. Tile Patterns
Tile patterns have long been common in kitchens, often used as backsplashes between cabinets and countertops. However, tile patterns are quickly becoming more common for shower enclosures. Tiles can be made of ceramic or glass materials, depending on your preference. Tile patterns are most often used on shower floors and walls, surrounded by a regular shower door or a frameless shower enclosure. This is a trend that is gaining traction in 2019.
3. Industrial Style Fixtures
One of the unique shower enclosure design trends in 2019 is an industrial design style. This design centers around bathroom fixtures, such as sinks, vanities, and faucets. This style often includes brass metal finishing and even brick features. In shower enclosures, an industrial showerhead can deliver a timeless Victorian style that is both beautiful and functional.
