The Industrial Decor trend comes and goes. Some homeowners love the tough and rugged feel of steel, brickwork, stone and glass as decorative elements. There’s a lot of attention to making this look work in the kitchen and family room, but we’re particularly entranced with how industrial decor is being used in the bathroom.
The wet room approach eliminates the traditional containment of the shower unit. Everything is open. The drain is set in the floor and there’s generally no barrier between the shower unit and the rest of the room.
While this is a neat concept, it does create difficulties for people who are using the bathroom for other things besides showering. For example, make up and other cosmetics do better in drier environments: you might not want your vanity encased in billowing clouds of steam.
What’s the solution? Well, as a commercial glass company that does custom shower enclosures, we have to say we love it. The next step in shower enclosures is the glass dividing wall for wet rooms. Generally the width of the room, with a panel that slides back to allow easy access to the shower area, the glass dividing wall enhances the functionality of the wet room while maintaining the open, airy vibe so beloved in industrial decor.
Glass dividing walls can be designed to create any affect you’d like. A combination of clear and fluted glass does a great job allowing for maximum light in the room while affording some measure of privacy to the person showering. Other options include frosted glass, etched glass, and colorful glass.
