Adding Color to Your Frameless Shower Enclosure

The vast majority of customers use clear glass in their European style shower enclosures. The reason for this is obvious. More and more homeowners are using expensive tile, marble, and granite in their shower stalls, and they don’t want to cover it up with obscured glass. Low-iron glass, also known as “extra clear” or “starphire” can be used to allow the true color of the material to show through. A minimal amount of hardware allows maximum exposure of the tile and granite work inside the shower.



Many people don’t realize that they can use colored glass in their shower enclosures rather than regular clear glass. There aren’t a lot of different colors readily available to use in frameless shower enclosures, but there are a few shades of green and blue. The glass used in the enclosure that you see here is called “Azurelite” …a very nice shade of blue. As you cans see, it looks stunning in this white marble tiled shower. The hardware finish is Polished Nickel, and features the “Saloon Style” configuration.

    That’s a beautiful color! The shower looks a lot better with the colored glass than it would have with clear glass.
