So, you’re designing a new bathroom, and you want it to look polished, luxurious and fresh off a Pinterest home design page. We get it. You deserve to have the bathroom of your dreams— one that looks and feels exactly the way you want it to.
Luckily, the pros at Basco Shower Enclosures have a bit of advice before you dive into this exciting new project.
- Consider the Shower Enclosure at the Beginning of Your Project
When designing a new bathroom, people tend to start planning for features within the shower; including the tile, hardware and fixtures. And then as the project moves on, be surprised to learn they will also need a shower enclosure as part of their bathroom renovation. This can be a surprise to the budget and lead times when not considered at the onset.
However, the shower enclosure itself can showcase those high-design elements of personal style and interior design. “Frameless heavy glass enclosures are a huge design trend because they give the bathroom that spacious, luxury spa-like feeling that homeowners want, and really show off the tile and fixtures,” said Greg Weyman, Basco Shower Enclosure’s vice president of marketing.
- Look at the Long Term Value
According to Basco, a good shower enclosure should fit the feeling of the home. It should look as if it was custom made to the owner’s aesthetic, not just plucked from a random catalogue. Price is important, but homeowners should be just as concerned with the long-term value.
- DIY Versus Hiring a Professional
The installation process depends on the type of shower enclosure you choose and how custom you want to go with it, Basco says. Some enclosures can be installed with basic hand tools and a little DIY knowledge. However, if you choose an intricate enclosure with many custom options, you may want to utilize a factory-trained professional.
- Framed or Frameless Design?
When focusing on the design, consider the type of look you’re going for, the heaviness and thickness of the glass and the shape of the enclosure’s opening. According to Basco, framed options are more forgiving in measurements and installation, but won’t give you a completely custom look like a frameless enclosure.
