Are you planning to upgrade your shower area to something more sophisticated than the shower curtain? Remodel your bathroom with complete shower enclosures solutions from Academy Glass. With more than 40 years of providing designer shower solutions to clients, we boast some of the best variations in style and sizes for any bathroom.
Shower stalls serve a lot of functionality compared to traditional bathrooms. If you are in a doubt whether to install an enclosure in your bathroom, here are some points to ponder over:
- They Fit In Well with Contemporary Designs
Some homeowners are always on the hunt to make their abode more modern. When it comes to your bathroom specifically, traditional shower curtains and installed bathtubs can make the space look out of date. The answer: shower enclosures.
Glass shower enclosures give your home an elegant and luxurious look. This makes them an ideal addition since large bathtubs take up a lot of space and make the area appear smaller. When installed in larger bathrooms, they can be added with built-in tubs or freestanding ones to vary the design.
- They Make a Unique Style Statement
The wide variety of shower enclosures available at Academy Glass ensures that there is always a suitable design option to fit your modern or contemporary bathroom design.
From clear glass to tinted to frosted, you can choose from a range of options to give your bathroom a unique appearance. Additionally, you may be able to customize the hardware, including the frame and handles, depending on your space.
To give your bathroom an ultra-chic look, choose a frameless glass shower enclosure with no visible framework. This makes any contemporary or modern bathroom look effortlessly minimalist.
- They Are Suitable for Those with Mobility Issues
For household members with mobility issues, accessing tubs can result in slip-and-fall accidents. Glass shower enclosures, on the other hand, reduce chances of accidents as their built-in doors make it easier to access the shower area, as does their ultra-low step. Shower enclosures also often have seats and handrails, which further increases safety.
- They Make Your Bathroom Look Open and Bright
It’s easy to make small bathrooms look even smaller. Shower curtains and opaque glass doors, for instance, will do the job. Clear glass shower enclosures, on the other hand, create the illusion of space and brightness.
- There Is No Chance of Leakage
No one likes stepping into a wet bathroom. Watertight glass shower enclosures from Academy Glass keep water contained, meaning you won’t have to clean up every time you shower. This also reduces the chance of falls due to wet floors, especially for the elderly and children.
- They’re Easy to Maintain
Our busy schedules mean water and soap marks can make our bathrooms look dirty and unhygienic. Shower doors also run the risk of breaking or getting scratched. Our glass shower enclosure doors, however, use tempered glass which is resistant to cracks and scratches. You can also choose a protective coating to prevent soap and water stains.
With our products you can rest assured knowing your glass shower enclosure will look as good as new for years. All you need to keep it shiny and clean is a microfibre cloth and a spritz of any commercial disinfectant.
- They Make for a Hygienic Bath Area
Bacteria and other microorganisms thrive in the humidity and moisture of showers. Mould and mildew, for instance, can grow on the lower half of shower curtains. Apart from making your bathroom look unkempt, this can pose health risks when not looked after properly.
This can be avoided, however, with our glass shower enclosures. Unlike shower curtains, glass is non-porous which prevents mould and mildew growth. The surface is also much easier to clean, making it a suitable option for bathrooms.

Which Shower Enclosure to Install
Now that you know how shower enclosures can benefit your home, here are some factors to consider that will allow you to save time and streamline the process of choosing one.
Glass shower enclosures come at many price points. So, when choosing one for your Toronto home, think about how much you want to spend.
Along with the price of the materials, you’ll also need to consider the cost of installation. (Labour rates depend on numerous factors, including the job’s location and complexity.)
Always choose an enclosure that fits the available floor space in your existing shower. That way you don’t have to relocate other fixtures which requires more time and money.
There are many styles and designs of shower enclosures. For instance, you can pick different shapes and opacities of glass. The ideal one, however, will match your bathroom décor.
At Academy Glass, we have a wide range of styles. Some of the popular ones are:
- Frameless Solutions
- Quadrant Enclosures
- Walk-In Showers
- Neo Angle Stalls
- Pentagonal Enclosures
