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.

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.
