Semi-Frameless Shower Glass Doors: A Cost Effective Option

CornerShowerYou’ve finally made the decision to update your master or guest bathroom, but sticker shock is setting in after you received estimates from various contractors. Don’t give up, thinking the bath of your dreams will never be within reach. One of the best ways to cut costs on a bath remodel and still get that “ripped from the home fashion magazines” look is with a semi-frameless shower glass door. You almost get the sleek, contemporary look of frameless without the high price tag. And you avoid the look of the old conventional showers featuring bulky metal framing. Here’s how:

Less is More

With a semi-frameless shower, metal framing is kept to a minimum for a graceful look. In most cases frame might be only 1” wide at the corners and the frame on the door is either narrow or non-existent, compared to traditionally framed showers. This allows the sparkling glass to be the focal point, while the framing takes on a minor role.

More Creative

Unusually shaped glass showers with more than a few corners will require some type of framing, but the minimal semi-frameless design gives you that sleek look plus the support your creative shower design requires.

Transforming your bath into a spa-like retreat has become a popular home improvement in the past few years. Let Barefoot & Company assist you in selecting the semi-frameless shower door style to fit your budget and we can also introduce other cost saving ideas for your bath remodel.
