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!
