Crystal Clear: A Blog About The Wonderful World Of Glass

I first fell in love with glass when I was ten years old. My mother took me to see a wonderful recital where the pianist was playing a glass piano. I was mesmerised by the way the piano shone and sparkled as it reflected the stage lights. I could never have imagined such a glamorous object. Ever since then, i have been fascinated by different types of glass. From stained glass panels to one-way mirrors, my eyes will always notice the glass fixtures in a room first. Recently, I ate at a restaurant in Japan where the entire floor was made of patterned glass. Needless to say, I was too excited to eat! This blog is for those who are looking for glass items and glass lovers like myself. I hope it gives you a peek into the wonderful world of glass and the options out there. Please tread carefully.

Why Frameless Shower Screens Are A Must Have For Modern Homes

by Ellen Jokinen

Showers are by far the most used area of most main bathrooms, with almost everyone in your household using them at least once a day and sometimes much more than that. As such, it makes sense that you should spend a bit more time, effort and money choosing how it should look and how it fits into the bathroom as a whole. While there have been many trends throughout the last few decades, none are as long-lasting or as useful as frameless shower screens. Here are a few reasons why frameless shower screens are an absolute must-have for modern homes.

Minimalist Look Goes With Nearly Every Design

Sometimes you can choose a fixture or appliance that is a very unique style that looks great until you realise you no longer like it and want to change. That is why it is so important when choosing the base elements of your home that they are timeless and not subject to a new design trend. Frameless shower screens are minimalist in nature, and as such will go with virtually any style you want. They are not big or gaudy, nor do they have any colours that could make them stand out in a bad way. They are out of sight, out of mind, just as they should be.

Easy To Clean

Another good aspect of frameless shower screens is the amount of maintenance it takes to keep them looking good. Frames are breeding grounds for mould and bacteria, as they can be hard to clean with any conventional household tools. Frameless shower screens eliminate most of this problem by the simple virtue of not having frames. This means you can clean completely over the edges and the area for any bacteria to hide is reduced to almost none. If you want to spend less time scrubbing the shower screen and more time scrubbing yourself, then it is a clear winner.

Make The Room Feel Bigger

Framed shower screens have the unfortunate effect of feeling like just another door inside what is often quite a small space. On the other hand, frameless shower screens act more like a window or mirror and make small spaces feel a lot bigger than they really are. They also can create quite stunning light displays when twilight or morning sunshine filters through the window and hits the shower screen. If you want a beautiful and simplistic way to make your bathroom feel roomier and lighter then you cannot go past frameless shower screens.
