Glass Shower McHenry

Glass Shower McHenry

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:

  • In-Lines
  • Corner
  • Neo-Angle
  • Steam
  • Semi-Frameless


In-Line Shower McHenry

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 McHenry

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 McHenry

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.

Steam Showers McHenry

Have you ever wanted to take a trip to a spa every day? A steam shower can recreate a relaxing spa feeling without having to book or pay for a spa trip. In addition to the shower head, a steady stream of steam is pumped into the shower, which is typically fully sealed to keep the steam from escaping. This helps to open pores and relax your body to de-stress as you clean up.

Semi-Frameless Showers McHenry

A modern trend with Glass showers is Frameless showers. However full frameless showers give one drawback, the seal that prevents water from leaving the shower. Semi-Frameless showers combine the seal of a framed glass shower with the look of a frameless shower, allowing you to enjoy the modern look without having to give up the functionality that a glass shower brings.

Back Painted Glass McHenry

As the name might suggest is this glass has been painted on the back. This allows more color to shine through on the front. This glass can come in a variety of colors that can be custom matched to go with your bathroom. The color helps to block what is on the other side while making your room more colorful and vibrant.

Colored Glass McHenry

Colored glass is glass that has a pigment added to it so that it has a hint of color while allowing people to see through them. Colored Glass comes in a variety of different opaqueness allowing different levels of visibility through them.

Curved Glass McHenry

One of the benefits that most people say shower curtains have over glass showers is glass showers are a box. Curved glass can be installed to give your shower a unique design as well as allow for turning without a risk of hitting an elbow. Curved glass is specially formed so that there are no impurities that could be added to prevent shattering.

Etched Glass McHenry

Special designs are one of the main benefits of shower glass over curtains. Etched glass adds a beautiful image to your glass shower that will last. Etched glass is also a great way to have your shower bring together a theme for a bathroom. Etched Glass also adds a level of privacy that other glass types might not offer.

Decorative Glass McHenry

Decorative Glass gives a more muted elegance to a bathroom then Etched Glass. Decorative glass is often a pattern or texture that breaks up the smooth solid glass look of your glass shower.

Frosted Glass McHenry

This is the glass that people typically think of when they think privacy in a glass shower. Sandblasting is used to create the frosted look and can be done to the entire glass panel or a section to give privacy while still allowing the decorative tile work of your shower to be seen.
