Glass showers don't have to be boring, here's why!

Slumped and textured glass for your shower doors is the perfect way to add luxury and low-maintenance upkeep without sacrificing practicality.

While the allure of various alternatives to glass shower doors may be appealing, it's important to recognise the benefits of slumped textured glass. Here's why this classic option remains a top choice for showers:

Privacy Without Compromise: Unlike clear glass, slumped textured glass offers enhanced privacy without sacrificing natural light. The subtle distortions in the glass obscure visibility while still allowing ample light to filter through, creating a bright and inviting shower environment.

Low Maintenance: One of the greatest advantages of slumped textured glass is its ease of maintenance. Unlike curtains or other alternatives, which may require frequent washing or replacement, slumped glass is durable and resistant to staining, making it a hassle-free option for busy households.
