Transitional bathroom designs feature a blend of the old and the new, merging fixtures and décor ideas from multiple eras. The popularity of this look allows homeowners to keep up with current trends while hanging on to beautiful or sentimental items from the past. Infact, it’s often possible to create a transitional look in your bathroom by replacing just a few key elements.
We all feel the need for a home makeover from time to time, and while glass can be used in virtually any part of a house, there are four rooms where it has special power to make a difference.
Glass shower doors will make your shower feel more elegant and spacious.
Making the switch from an opaque shower curtain to clear glass shower doors will instantly glamorize your shower area. What’s more, the transparent glass will impart a sense of roominess and openness so that the shower stall no longer seems narrow and confining.
There are a number of options from which you can choose to make your shower doors especially charming. These include:
• Frameless design to ensure that the doors are sleek and stylish.
• Fancy handles and hinges.
• More glass to create an enclosure suitable for a steam shower.
Without a doubt, switching to quality glass shower doors will have a significant impact on your bathroom’s aesthetic appeal. Adding elegance and a feeling of roominess to your shower will make a world of difference.
Today’s bathroom design trends favor giving this once neglected space lots of TLC. If your home’s bathroom is small, you may wonder if it is still possible to make it a glamorous and relaxing retreat. While you may not have the floor space to add a soaker tub or humongous shower enclosure, there are many ways to give a small bathroom a more spacious feel.
It’s a special day and you want everything to be perfect! Except you see streaks on your glass windows, glass table and even glass walls? It’s hard to know which side the streaks are on, and constantly cleaning to have the spot free look is time consuming. For business owners and residents who want to try it themselves, these helpful hints will make your Valentine’s Day a little brighter:
Going in different directions on the front and back of the glass will eliminate those sneaky lines. Side-to-side motions on the front surface and up and down motions for the back surface will show results. Wait for the glass to dry, you’ll see less noticeable streaks.

Building and designing a green bathroom has become a popular trend. There is a twofold reason to consider going eco-friendly when you build. One is, to be environmentally responsible and leave a smaller carbon footprint. The other is to lower your utility bills through energy efficient fixtures.
