when Houzz throws you curves...
I came across this picture, which is now making me re-think plans to use the expected frameless shower door in our master bath redo.
Eclectic Bathroom by Dallas Photographers Lindsay von Hagel
(they repurposed a salvaged french door and installed it as a stationary shower wall with a shower curtain behind for added water protection)
I love the fact that it uses a salvaged piece, both for the green factor and the cost savings over frameless shower doors. I also love that it would bring in both an architectural element and some softness with the curtain, and even some color with a different curtain. As an added plus we wouldn't have to keep the frameless doors clean and spot-free.
But then there are the practical issues. Finding a door to use. Sealing it well (probably the easiest to tackle). Making sure the door/curb/shower configuration won't cause floods. Probably changing out the glass to tempered for safety.
Of course, since I am in the planning phase and haven't made any *actual* decisions yet, I should be glad I found it now, but I am torn. Are these issues readily overcome, because I really love the look? Anyone out there tried or have something like this?
