In most bathrooms, the shower enclosure is a bit of an afterthought, just a practical solution for keeping water from spraying all over the room. But lately a different kind of shower enclosure is picking up steam — steel framed doors that make the shower a thing to be celebrated.
I suspect that most (if not all) of the shower doors pictured in this post are custom jobs, but if you're interested in replicating the look without dealing with a fabricator there are a few options, like this French door-style corner shower, and Costal Shower Doors' Gridscape series, which is available in a variety of styles.
This is a perfect fit for bathrooms with a bit of an industrial vibe, like this one from Smith Hanes.
But a steel-framed shower door is also lovely in a more traditional bathroom as well — like this one from Byrd.
These shower enclosures can take on a different look depending on the size of the panels. This steel and glass door from GIA Bathrooms & Kitchens reads quite modern.
A delicate shower enclosure draws the eye in a bathroom from Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles. (The minimal profile of the bottom of the door really shows off the contrast between the shower tile and the wood floor.)
