Get around curvy corners. Unless you spend a fortune on custom‐shaped pieces there is no way glass could get around the curved corner of an oval bath. So when you'd love to add a shower to your luxury egg‐shaped bath you're better off borrowing a trick from hospitals by adding a curved ceiling track. The curtain could swish away to one corner so you motionless enjoy the lines of your special bath when it is not in use.
Create a sleek no‐sill floor. With efficient under‐tile flooring systems and hidden drains the shower floor could be a sleek continuation of the bathroom floor. A half wall with no door or hinge hardware disappears making your bathroom appear much larger.
Join shower and tub in a wet room. If you fondness the resort look of a separate shower and tub ask your designer about creating a wet room at one end of the bathroom. Using the same floor and drain technology as a walk_in shower the shower does not need a separate sill and could be as roomy as you like — no cramped box here. A glass wall with or without a sliding door opens a light airy room. Keep the floor tile pattern running in the same design to help make the wet room ‘disappear’.
Make a tiny space seem larger. Even in a tiny bathroom — this one is barely more than a metre wide — a glass wall extends the space particularly if you run the same flooring through without any interrupting sill or drain. Create a walk‐through shower. If you have the space in your dream bathroom go one better than a glassed box at the of end of the room and put your shower front and centre.
You'll need to discuss the structural underpinnings to create a half wall such as this (and probably upgrade the glass to commercial‐strength so that you don’t need to add distracting columns or frames). Who says a glass wall has to be clear? Turn your glass wall into a feature with a printed photograph of your favourite scenery — you could be bathing in a woodland glen or mountain creek. inspect out these off‐the‐shelf designs from photographer Peter Leatham.
