It's In the Details: Factory Window Shower Enclosures

Let's talk showers. I'm all for a clean, frameless glass shower surround -- I'm a fan, for sure. But I pinned this photo months and months ago, and I cannot get it out of my head.

I? Love it. Lurve it. Lah-oovve it. I've moved way past 'like' and I'm firmly in 'like like' territory. I'm schoolgirl-giddy. Steel factory casement windows used as a shower enclosure? It's so industrial. So unexpected. Almost urban and a little masculine... whatever it is, it's exciting to me.

Then, stick that industrial, masculine shower enclosure in a bathroom with cottage touches and you hop right into juxtaposition land, my favorite place to visit! Those oversized honeycomb tiles, the rustic vanity... aaaaaahhhhh! (that was an angelic choir). I'm crazy for it, as in "your weird aunt that no one talks about" crazy. But cooler. Or something.

It worked in my head. Long story short, factory window showers = fabulous detail in my world. 

What about in your world?

  1. I love those windows. They're one of the things I miss most about our old loft that was in an historic grocery warehouse building. Unfortunately they are a pain to maintain - especially where moisture is involved - and expensive to repair. Sadly I know this because our HOA tried to levy a $10k assessment against some of the loft owners to pay to fix the worst windows in the building - coincidentally, their own.

  3. Oh dear, you now have me scouring the internet for salvage yards that might supply me with something similar and contactingreproduction companies to see if they will take orders from anything less than a whole building-worth of window. Somehow a standard sheet glass shower enclosure just doesn't cut it any more!!

  5. Hi Anna- We fabricated the corner shower enclosure for a designer in Westchester County, NY. That image was published in House Beautiful about ten years ago. Send us an email if you'd like additional info: seekirchersteelwindow@gmail.com. Thanks, Todd

  8. You may also find that the older your windows get, the harder it is to find repair parts. An easier option, even for petty window damages, can sometimes be to replace them. Goodwindowworks.com Boston
