Wipe It Down. To reduce post-shower buildup, wipe down your shower walls and glass door with a microfiber cloth or other soft rag after each shower. A quick wipe down is all you need, then just hang the rag to dry. Use the Right Tool for the Job. Even if you follow every tip for a clean shower door, it will still need an occasional deep cleaning. The BLACK+DECKER Powered Squeegee Vacuum is an ideal tool for the job. Simply charge the vacuum’s lithium battery and fill the tank with your favorite glass cleaning solution. Use the squeegee’s built-in spray to release cleaning solution onto the glass while you squeegee it clean. It's a one-step, streak-free way to remove grime from your glass shower door.
What's So Special About Frameless Doors? Let's get the big questions out of the way first: What the heck is a frameless shower enclosure and why does everyone seem to want one? A "frameless" shower enclosure uses sturdy tempered glass (usually 3/8" to 1/2" thick) that does not require the support of metal around its exterior edges. The result is a clean-lined, modern look that is free of visual obstructions. In fact, one reason frameless shower doors are so popular is that they help showcase beautiful stonework, intricate tile designs and gleaming hardware.
A Room With A View. Whether you're adding a new shower or updating an existing one, you'll be making all sorts of crucial decisions, not the least of which are what type of doors to buy. While your choice of enclosure might seem as transparent as — well, glass — it's actually a bit more complicated. Facts you'll need to know include the exact dimensions of your shower space, how much room you have between the shower and other fixtures, how much time you want to invest in daily cleanup and whether those frameless shower doors you saw on a design blog are really the best fit for your lifestyle and your wallet. Take a look at the gorgeous steel-framed shower enclosure pictured above. Yes, it's custom-built and undoubtedly expensive. But it's also a reminder that there are loads of shower door options available in a range of prices — including some very attractive framed models. Armed with the right information, the best choice for your bathroom is sure to become crystal clear.
Cutting edge shower door idea #2 – Contemporary finishes beat traditional hands down and save you money. In the bathrooms of 10 years ago the focus was on furniture grade cabinetry, rich wood and dark oil rubbed finishes. You can almost hear the famous work from Fiddler on The Roof saying “tradition” to describe these bathrooms of yesteryear. Today – even if you have a traditional home – contemporary is the cutting-edge design look desired in bathrooms. Sleek wall hung cabinets. Clear frameless glass enclosures. What’s also nice is the preferred hardware finish is chrome – which is more cost effective than the oil rubbed bronze of the past. It’s nice to know at least in one area more stylish is associated with more cost effective.
