Clear glass is often selected to show off beautiful tile or stone wall surfaces and offers an open feel to the shower. Homeowners often choose to add a glass coating like Basco’s AquaglideXP to clear glass to keep make it easy to clean and maintain the like new appearance. Patterned glass offers more privacy and can make the shower enclosure the focal point of the bathroom.
