Hold on to those stones; you won’t want to throw anything in these bathrooms. Using glass is one of the oldest and most effective tricks to make your bathroom look larger, lighter, and more open. Glass bathrooms (well, not all glass, obviously) are stylishly classic with a calming zen feel. Whatever the actual size of the bathroom and the number of windows in it, glass gives an illusion of more space and light.
Glass is perfect for showcasing exotic materials or unusual features in the bathroom by eliminating distracting shapes and potential color clashes:
But a clear faucet can speak for itself, too!
For the more daring decorators (and perhaps Windex shareholders), a glass bathtub both stands out and blends in for a strikingly gorgeous bathroom.
Although open-concept bedrooms and bathrooms are all the rage, many people – understandably – don’t like having their bathroom literally in their bedrooms. To get all the coolness without the chill (and wet floors), enclose your en-suite with glass. You’ll get the look and feel of open-concept without any of the downsides!

Some of the designs are extremely elegant, and I hope to one day recreate some of their looks in my own home. Currently we are looking to remodel the current glass enclosure surrounding our shower area, and we may end up using some designs from here. I have to agree with your reasoning behind having these glass enclosures as they really do make a bathroom look much larger, and more open than those without.
My husband has yet to see the importance or the beauty that can be had from a glass enclosure like some of the ones here. It has been a dream of mine to complete my bathroom renovations with simple glass features, like the Vigo Frameless Shower Door that you have pictured here. If not that one, then maybe one to go around a bathtub. So many options! I have to change my husbands mind!
I’m very close to freaking out over some of these bathrooms! Some are so beautiful, some so excessive, and I just can’t handle the last one; they should have a vertigo warning on the door. My favorite has got to be the glass that has a design of a wave. I don’t know how glass makers can do that, but it is SO beautiful. It offers some privacy for the shower, and it fits so perfectly with the style and color of the room.
Please let me know how to get in touch with the manufacturers or their agents for the clear stand alone bath tub you have shown here just above the “Ariel 6′” whirlpool tub.
Hi Gordon, that’s the Tulip glass tub by Prizma Studio. Click here for information. Thanks for your interest!
