The shower in a bathroom is invariably the centerpiece, the first thing that is noticed the moment you step through the bathroom door. With this being the case, showers in San Antonio should reflect the lifestyle of the homeowner as well as accentuate the space. There are a number of different shower enclosures from which to choose.

* Frameless: Frameless glass shower enclosures are very popular, not only do they look good; they are flexible. This type of shower lends itself well to any bathroom style as they use minimal obtrusive hardware. With metal out of the way, the beauty of the design shows through. Frameless showers lend themselves to any style; they are adaptable to modern, minimalist bathrooms as well as rooms with a classic look.

* Glass blocks: If the shape of your bathroom is such that you can do away with a shower door then glass blocks may be to your liking. Glass blocks are extremely versatile, they are available in a wide range of textured patterns which provide privacy while at the same time give your new bathroom a clean, seamless appearance. The design options are limitless, there are different colors, styles, and thickness available, and there is no need for them to be ceiling high as glass block walls are free standing.

* Framed enclosure: Popular showers in San Antonio are those that use a framed enclosure. This style of a shower is relatively inexpensive but this fact does not mean for a minute that they cannot be beautiful. Fittings are available in brass, chrome, and stainless steel that can complement a classic or modern look.

Depending on the layout, some elegant bathroom showers do not use an enclosure at all. Using the same flooring throughout the room adds seamless continuity. If you are concerned about the lack of heat, you can easily have your contractor install a heat lamp or even a heated floor.
