Tile vs. Glass in Shower--Price Difference?

mydreamhomeMay 7, 2011

Anyone have a ballpark idea of the cost difference? We had planned on all tile in our shower, but I'm worried it will look & feel claustrophobic. Would like to do a pony wall on 1 wall and use the glass to let light in. Glass would replace an area 3.5'L x 3'H.

Hello Mydreamhome,
I'm afraid that there are just too many variables to give you a credible answer to your question. Ceramic tile can run from less than a dollar per foot to more than $100 per foot. Glass enclosures can range in price just as dramatically. My recommendation is, since you will need framing, plumbing and other finishes, is that you contact a few general contractors local to you and ask them to give you pricing on both options.
Sorry not to be more helpful,
