Frameless Shower Enclosure – to give a shower room a modern and fresh look you might want to look at the availability of the frameless enclosures. Although, these have no door, they are often just as versatile as the framed variety. Shower screens of this nature are generally secured in place via wall brackets, which brings with it the benefit of giving more freedom in design, with the option to go with modern curved or similar contours.

These are perfect for those with the budget to invest and looking to create a truly stylish and modern bathroom.
