5 beautiful glass shower door designs to light up your bathroom


As Australia’s love affair with all things renovating and DIY improvement continues, we are always looking to help and inspire where we can.

According to Justin Lilburne from JPP Buyers Advocates, giving the bathroom some attention is one of the most effective ways to increase the overall value of your home.

In many cases, you can carry out a bathroom overhaul without having to make major structural changes to the room.

Start with the smallest bathroom features, then work up

Deciding to give your bathroom a makeover doesn’t mean you need to commit to full scale, wall-destroying, pipe-exposing chaos straight away.

Here’s a simple way to whittle your ultimate dream list down to a more manageable starting point:

  • Jot down all the things you’d like to change or upgrade
  • Now attach a rough price estimate to each item
  • Decide an approximate budget for the first phase of your bathroom overhaul
  • Add up as many of the smaller items as you can until you reach your planned budget

We have put together 5 examples of the most delightfully inventive and eye-catching ideas for shower door designs.

The Elegant Minimalist

Frameless glass is stylish, elegant and timeless. This look can suit just about any colour scheme, but really adds some points to a classic black or white tile with silver trim. Frameless glass is anchored to your tiles in several discreet points, which makes for a strong and sturdy frame, without all the excess bulk. We can customise and cut frameless glass to suit the dimensions of your bathroom to make the entire process speedy and simple.

The Classic Victorian

The frame has all the hallmarks of the Victorian era, and the addition of a simple frosted glass panel creates a look that is fit for a King or Queen.

This look is the perfect compliment to period homes and townhouses and certainly adds a unique feel to the room overall.

A Touch of Frost

First and foremost, frosted glass adds privacy to your shower area without needing messy curtains.

Plus, frosted glass panels can add a bit of pop to the overall colour scheme and can be customised to work with the existing room design.

Etched & Abstract

Etched glass allows for a new level of creativity to permeate through your bathroom design ideas. Whether it’s abstract and symbolic or a more structured pattern you are considering, there is virtually no limit to what can be etched onto a glass panel.

You can also experiment with different levels of etching which, in turn, will affect the amount of light diffused through the glass shower door itself. The results can often create quite a unique experience in any style of bathroom.

Colour Burst

If you are really ready to experiment, coloured tints can be added to glass shower panels to really shake things up.

Tinted glass shower doors can act as a standalone feature piece, or be used as a subtle complement to the existing colour scheme of the bathroom.

Be bold, be adventurous and bring a fresh look into your next bathroom renovation or redesign with a taste of bright colour.

By now you can probably see there are quite a number of options and possible combinations available for the humble shower screen glass. And you don’t need to start the whole bathroom design from scratch to achieve some dramatic and value-adding results to your home.
