One of the big reasons that you need an expert like Michigan Specialty Glass to guide you when you embark upon an endeavor like this is the fact that there are a number of choices that you will need to make. One of your first decisions will be to determine whether you want a framed or frameless shower. You are probably wondering what the difference is. A frameless shower is an all-glass enclosure. It is considered to be a step up in terms of design and allows you accessorize the rest of the bathroom without taking into account what would have been the frame of the shower. Framed glass showers, while still looking elegant, usually cause you to accent the rest of the bathroom to what the frame looks like. In terms of construction, frameless showers require more glass fabrication. The glass is usually thinner in a framed shower and is wrapped in aluminum casing to reinforce the glass. And for cleaning purposes, frameless glass showers are much easier to clean because there is much more smooth surface space.
