Framed or Frameless? If you opt for a glassed-in shower, you have two options: framed or frameless. Showers constructed with metal framing use thinner (1/8- to 3/16-inch) tempered, polished safety-glass panels that are joined together with very little metal. While you'll pay about 50 percent more initially for a frameless shower, the lack of trim pieces makes the glass easier to clean, and there's nothing to rust. Also, the expanses of glass keep the look of your bath uninterrupted.
only if the shower goes opposite the door, tile up to the bench and then glass so you can still see the windows
