Why Backpainted Glass?

There are various qualities of both glass and paint that you can choose to help you attain the look you’re going for. For instance, if you’re looking for a tempered glass, that is virtually unbreakable, you may pay more for durability. Tempered glass is great for kitchens since it can handle the extreme heat without cracking or breaking.

Tempered glass is also must, if you’re looking to use the glass as a functioning whiteboard, a free-standing wall or divider, or any surface that may bear weight. There is no color limitation on backpainting. You can choose any custom color and we can paint it.

Backpainted glass is great for showcasing a modern and edgy sense of style. While many homeowners and renovators are turning to the glass as an option for backsplashes, countertops and accent walls, many unique businesses are also looking to backpainted glass to liven up their office and showcase their company in its best light.

Many offices are now opting for magnetic glass whiteboards over the traditional board because glass is easy to clean, durable and long-lasting. Offices have been getting creative with backpainted glass; using it for everything from desktops, cubicle dividers, accent walls and more.

Many companies are even customizing the glass to match the office perfectly. You can choose the exact color of your company logo, or have the glass engraved with the company name, a logo or a popular quote or mission statement. These custom glass pieces make your office stand out from your competition, and your clients and customers will surely enjoy the look.

Modern Shower Door Glass Trends

glass showers
glass showers

As we are working more with glass shower enclosures, we’ve been noticing some trends in custom shower enclosure design. When we say “custom” these are completely custom designs with unique panel sizes made exclusively for a space. They can certainly also be for project work – for instance where many of the same design are made for hospitality,…but the designs are unique and are definitely not “off the rack” from a home improvement warehouse. Generally, these doors are 3/8″ or 1/2″ thick tempered glass with fabrication for specialized hinges, handles and hardware. What’s more, these exciting doors quicken the pulse with beautiful new features that are the leading edge of shower enclosure design.

At Bear Glass, we are proud to be able to fabricate glass for such beautiful showers that make these bathrooms so special using our full line of our products.

Acid etched Glass Shower Enclosure:

This translucent glass is available in low-iron versions that have a milky-white appearance that is soothing and ethereal for the bath. It also allows for privacy while still offering all the easy-to-clean advantages of other glass showers. And because it is permanently etched on one surface (usually placed facing the outside of the shower), the effect will never fade, clean off, or scratch off.

Tinted Glass  Shower Door

Gray, bronze, and even blue tints are a nice look that are completely transparent but with just a hint of color to accent interior color schemes and adds a bit of the unexpected. This is not a film added to the glass, the tint is created in the actual float glass manufacturing process, so the color will stay true forever.

Temperd Shower Enclosure

With temperd glass that goes all the way up to the ceiling, these showers can trap in all the heat and steam from the shower to create a sauna-like effect. Moveable specially-cut upper transoms can be opened to help control the moisture levels to prevent your shower from becoming a constant rainforest and aid ventilation.

Every shower has its own unique features and needs. Choosing the right enclosure for that shower makes all the difference in the world.

What trends have you been spotting in glass shower enclosures? What would you LIKE to be seeing? Here at Bear Glass Shower Doors, we will help you achieve that clean look that will make your home look that much more valuable and something as simple as changing your regular shower doors that have been installed since the beginning of the time your home was built into.
