The standard glass shower enclosure is composed of a relatively thin piece of glass framed with metal for extra strength. Although much cheaper to produce and install, standard enclosures tend to collect mold and last only about a third as long as frameless glass enclosures. But want to know why we really love frameless? Cause they’re purrrdy and much less likely to harbor disgusting colonies of mold and mildew. The thicker tempered glass costs more to fabricate and install but we think the streamlined look and extended durability far outweighs the competition.
Our Verdict: Totally Splurge-Worthy!

Philadelphia, PA – There’s nothing like a luxurious tub to turn a bathroom into a spa-like retreat.

South Wayne, PA – The powder room in a historic home was remodeled as part of a larger whole house renovation. Thoughtful reconfiguration of interior spaces and circulation gave the powder room a larger footprint suitable for a formal hall bath.

The new generously spaced powder room comfortably accommodates guests and complements the formal spaces at the front of the original house that is serves.
