Many homeowners turn to glass when it’s time to enclose their shower or bathtub. Glass has many benefits. However, not everyone wants the full transparency of clear glass — the shower is a space many people want to keep private. A good alternative to perfectly transparent glass is textured glass.
Manufacturers make textured glass by cooling the silica on a mold. The mold transfers a texture that creates bas-relief patterning on one side of the glass. The patterning makes the glass semi-opaque. Therefore, you get the reflection benefits of glass while securing a little privacy. Yet you don’t completely sacrifice your sightline in the bathroom.
If you’re ready to install textured glass for your shower enclosure, you’ll need to make the following considerations.
Trends come and go. However, a glass shower is a classic. Glass is stain-proof, naturally antibacterial, and relatively easy to clean. What’s more, glass is beautiful. You probably already know the basics about glass enclosures for your shower. However, you can choose custom enclosures that will transform your bathroom design.
Minimalist Walk-in Shower
At its most basic, all that a walk-in shower needs are a showerhead and drain. You can have the contractors install a standard shower pan with a raised lip and a drain in the center. To bring the design even further into the minimalist sphere, though, the floor itself can be designed so that it slopes down into a drain.
Vehicle windshields are at the mercy of the weather. Fog, dust, sand, and flying debris can cover windshields in messy coatings that limit drivers’ visibility. Windshields are also soiled inside by interior chemicals and coatings.
As autumn advances in Utah, be ready for storms and other low-visibility driving conditions by keeping your windshield in top shape. Here are some tips to help you see the road more clearly.
Clean the Outside Glass
You can see more clearly through clean glass. When you wash your car in autumn, pay particular attention to the window surfaces both inside and outside of the car.
Your home windows serve several purposes. They provide natural lighting for the home, give beauty to your space, provide egress in case of emergency, and offer ventilation for every room.
However, when your windows crack, they begin to fail at most of their primary purposes; they no longer look beautiful and they leak precious heat and cool air, ruining the efficient climate control of your home. Windows can crack for several reasons, and when you know the reason, you can sometimes prevent the problem from happening again.
Learn some of the reasons why home windows break unexpectedly and what you can do to fix the problem.
