After getting a complimentary beverage at the floating drinks counter, customers can sip as they tour the newly renovated, fascinating showroom of Bay-View Glass & Mirror. Taking in the back-painted glass desk, Euro style glass vanity and sliding glass shower doors, the browsers sink into stylish yellow armchairs and set down their cups on the cool coffee table topped and supported with glass panels. What a civilized and inspired way to consider your options for custom glass-work throughout your home or business.
In a palette of sky blue, apple green and banana yellow, the Bay-View showroom is now as bright and friendly as the people on the Bay-View team. Back-painted glass intensifies the colours of the beverage counter back-splash and other features, giving the area a clean sheen.
One look at the details of the consultation area and office spaces indicates how seriously owners Al and Eric LaMarre take design, fabrication and installation. “When your business is glass, your work is transparent. Only perfection is acceptable,” Eric says.
Possibilities for custom work are limitless. Bay-View displays numerous doors showing applications for specialty glass. An exciting new concept is Bay-View’s barrier free sliding shower enclosures.
“Not all sliding door systems are created equal,” Eric says. Bay-View’s superior line of barrier free showers combines a sleek, frame-less glass panel design with the multi-function of a sliding door system – without requiring a bottom track. “This uncluttered design is right on trend,” Eric adds.
Bay-View’s new Serenity Series sliding door system has an entirely different look from traditional sliding shower door units. Using minimal hardware, the frame-less enclosure looks as though it is floating. Specially designed roller bearings allow for quiet, easy opening and closing of the door. This unique roller system operates above the header support bar that spans the top of the enclosure.
The Laguna Series sliding door system blends the same great features of the Serenity with distinctive barn door style hardware. It is also available as completely frame-less.
“As always, our showers can be fabricated with optional Shower-Guard™ glass which ensures that your enclosure will stay beautiful for years to come,” Eric says. The Shower-Guard™ coating resists hard water, prevents staining from everyday use and makes cleaning a breeze.
With the new showroom’s renovations complete, the doors are open to people who appreciate quality, style and innovation. “Look through examples of our finished projects, including lots of shower configurations. Tell us your favourite décor colour and we can show you how we can use it to create custom back-painted glass for shower walls, table tops, eating bars and back-splashes,” Eric invites. “Come to Bay-View for fresh, new ideas that will keep your design out in front and ahead of the curve.”
