Glass Shower Elgin

Glass Shower Elgin

Showers are a great way to stay clean. Unlike baths, showers continually cycle fresh water in and take the dirty water out. The drawback of showers though is that they tend to spray water everywhere, especially with clogged shower heads. The shower curtain is typically used to keep the water in the shower, but is hard to clean, doesn’t always work, and can age. Glass showers have an elegant look to them that is timeless, they are sealed so you don’t have to worry about water leaking out, and can be cleaned with most household cleaners. Finer Concepts can help you with your shower by installing Custom Shower Glass for you. We specialize in:

Splash Guard Shower Elgin

Splash Guard Showers, also known as Fixed Showers, are a pane of glass that does not move with an opening that allows you to walk right into the shower. These are often paired with unique shower heads that rains water down. Splash Guard showers have the benefit of no moving parts. This means that nothing can break down causing difficulty getting in or out, or stopping you. Only the physical breaking of the glass or other materials is a problem. With less moving parts means fewer crevices that dirt and grime can get into, making Splash Guard Showers easier to clean. The drawbacks for these types of showers are that water can get out easier as well. In addition, the steam from a hot shower is free to move out into the bathroom and can cause the shower to be less relaxing.

Single Door Shower Elgin

As the name implies, this is a shower with a single door. Typically two sliding panels or doors are added to glass showers. This makes getting in and out simpler, however having two doors also means that there is twice the chance of one not being completely closed while you’re taking a shower. Single door showers can also be used in small spaces to help maximize space in small areas. Single doors also have less moving parts than double doors, which means less that can go wrong as well. Sometimes you’ll encounter a double shower door where one door is always a problem while the other one opens and closes with ease.

Sliding Door Shower Elgin

A sliding door is a very efficient and space saving door for showers. A sliding glass door can easily replace shower curtains in many situations and can work with bathtubs showers as well as regular showers. A glass door slides along a metal track either located at the top and bottom of the door or just the top. The tracks are designed to empty into the shower, so water does not get outside. However, it is important to make sure to keep the track clean as it can cause problems in the long run.

In-Line Shower Elgin

In-Line showers are in line with the wall. Often used when there is more space behind a wall than in front of it. In-Line showers are nice as they can add a shower to a bathroom without taking up space inside. There are very few drawbacks to in-line showers that are already built. Adding an in-line shower can be a logistical problem with making sure that pushing back a wall in one part of the house, doesn’t cause a problem in another.

Corner Showers Elgin

Corner showers are perfect for large bathrooms that sectioning off an entire area for a shower would be wasted space. Corner showers often have one fixed side with a single or double door on another. Some double door corner showers might have one door on each side.

Neo-Angle Showers Elgin

Neo-Angle Showers are corner showers, except that instead of coming to a 90-degree point with a door on the side, the door is on an angle replacing the corner. These showers allow for corner showers to be placed in smaller bathrooms, where coming to a 90-degree corner would take up too much room.
