"We like to use frameless shower doors for a couple of reasons", says Mariette Barsoum of Divine Kitchens. "With a frameless door, there's no visual separation, which make the space larger.

"I was inspired by the framework of this house and its secluded and forestlike surroundings", says Kimberly Arnold Fletcher of Spectrum Design Group. "My goal was to create an open feel and bring the outside into the master bathroom.

While the world waits for the inevitable advancements in glass technology, there's still much that's being accomplished with regular glass. Smart mirrors, or interactive mirrors, are the first application for smart glass technology, because they don't need to be transparent. Using existing two‐way‐mirror technology, smart mirrors can function in your home like regular mirrors but optionally display information right on the surface of the mirror. One of the better visions for what’s possible with a magic mirror was conceived by, of all organizations, The New York Times. Yes, the Times has its own R&D lab, which tries to figure out how people will get news and information in the future. Apparently, they’ll get it in the bathroom, according to its concept video.
