Your Shower Door Glass Options
Glass is glass, right? Not when you’re hanging out with the Shower Door Experts! We’ll help you find the right glass for your design and budget. Learn more about your glass options:
Clear Glass versus Low-Iron Glass
Most of our clients choose standard clear glass for their custom shower door. However, it’s becoming more common to upgrade to low-iron glass, also known as high definition (HD) or starfire glass. Iron gives clear glass a slight green tint. Unless you see clear glass side-by-side with low-iron glass, the tint isn’t so noticeable. But when clients invest in eye-catching tile work, they might prefer low-iron glass – especially for light-colored tile. It is more optically clear and gives the shower a noticeable luster.
Rain and Acid Etch Glass
Rain and acid etch glass are visually interesting and maximize privacy. But keep in mind that they also limit the amount of light that makes its way into the shower enclosure. You might want to supplement your shower space with additional lighting. We love a good dimmer switch for maximum lighting options!
