In the mid eighteen hundreds, custom etched glass was used on establishments to provide privacy to patrons without completely obliterating natural light. Today etched glass is still used for windows, doors, glassware, and mirrors. The manufacturing process and chemical treatments used to achieve that frosted look have become a lot safer due to modern technology. Custom etched glass can certainly enhance the aesthetics of your home and make it unique from other homes in the neighborhood. 


Custom glass shower doors can improve the aesthetics and function of your bathroom. Shower curtains are pretty common in most bathrooms but their popularity is being overtaken by custom glass shower doors in Toronto as well as the GTA. Shower curtains get stains and are prone to becoming a breeding ground for mold and mildew. But why else are homeowners moving away from curtains and towards glass? 


Home décor enthusiasts are opting for glass shower doors in Toronto and across the GTA. Many homeowners pay attention to the aesthetics of their bathroom because it is a part of home interior design. However, the problem with most homes is inadequate space in the bathroom to allow free hand in creating design. An ingenious solution is the installation of transparent glass shower doors to add class and sophistication to any size bathroom. 


Architects the world over rely on safety glass whenever incorporating glass or glass features within a building design. Using regular glass is too risky. Safety glass is used because it is tough and sturdy, expertly tempered to be more resilient than regular glass. It is typically incorporated into high-rises, store front windows and displays, and even glass shower doors. Wherever there is high human traffic, whether consumer or worker, safety glass is required. If safety glass breaks, it breaks into harmless and uniform pieces which cause significantly less injury than glass shards. Safety glass is categorized into three main factions: tempered, wired, and laminated. 


A great way to spruce up your bathing space is with glass shower doors, Toronto. Why glass? It has a sophisticated look and visually opens up any room. Installing tempered glass panels where a dingy shower curtain used to hang has the effect of making the space look bigger, lighter, and airy. The bathroom can be a space for tranquility and Zen; transform your bathing space into a spa-like retreat. You do not need to change much to have a big impact, either. A solid statement piece like a glass shower door will do all the talking. You can choose to go with a single glass door or an entire glass surround; panels can be transparent or etched for extra privacy.
