The bathroom is a room where luxury and comfort are prized. Bathroom design is often a key focus of many home remodeling jobs throughout the Hesperia and the High Desert.

Esthetics and Design
There is really no question that a frameless shower has more design function than a shower with a framed door. In terms of esthetics, frameless systems have the upper hand.
