If you’ve been doing your research, you likely already know that there are many benefits to installing a glass shower enclosure in your home. When you’re ready to have a beautiful new shower installed in your home, you may wonder what style is right for you. At Diversified Glass, we help homeowners just like you design their perfect glass shower enclosures on a daily basis. Our design team can help you create a custom look that fits perfectly in your home. Here are some things to consider when designing a custom glass shower.

The Size

One of the major benefits of a glass shower is that it can help open up your bathroom, making it feel larger. However, it is possible to have a glass shower that is too big a particular space. This is where you will want to consult with a professional glass designer. During your initial consultation, your contractor will measure our bathroom to determine the appropriate shower size for your particular project. If you want to maximize the space used for your shower, it may mean that your toilet or other components in your bathroom need to be moved. However, your new glass shower can typically be installed in the spot where you existing one stands.

The Shape

Some people have a vision for a large, grand shower enclosure, while other homeowners want something that’s more practical. If you’re looking to create more space in your bathroom, you may want to opt for a smaller square-shaped shower enclosure. These showers are aesthetically appealing; however, they can be created using minimal space. On the other end of the spectrum, you could create a large rectangular or rounded shower enclosure. While these showers take up more space, they may allow you to add some additional features to your shower such as duel shower heads.


Unlike a shower curtain, a glass enclosure ensures that your shower is always in plain view. This is an opportunity for you to really get creative with upgraded shower fixtures and tile work. There are many different shower tiles available on the market today, which means you’ll have no trouble creating a truly unique design that is just your own. Ceramic tiles are a very popular choice for tiles, however, there are also beautiful natural slate pieces that are quickly growing in popularity. There are even shower tiles that are made up of grids of river rock for those that want to bring the feel of the outdoors inside.

Is a Glass Enclosure Right for You?

Of course, not everyone is keen on the idea of a glass shower enclosure. Usually, this is because they don’t want to get rid of their tub. The good news is that you can get the look of a beautiful glass enclosure without sacrificing your tub. Custom glass shower doors can be fabricated to fit around your existing bathtub. For many homeowners, this is the best of both worlds.
