Something as simple as adding or updating a shower door can elevate the style and infuse new life into your bathroom.
If you’re ready to lose the shower curtain for a more permanent solution for keeping water off your bathroom floor, adding a shower door not only does the trick, but it can transform the whole look of the space.
With a custom shower door, you can add a personal touch to the space because you get to choose the door style, frame, finish, and type of glass.
But before you decide to redesign or freshen up your bathroom with a new custom shower door, you’ll need to consider your budget, the room’s layout, how much space you have to work with, and what style best speaks your design language.
Choosing a custom shower door does require some serious thought since there are myriad options across different price points. Once you familiarize yourself with what’s available, the choice will become as clear as glass.
Are you selecting a door for a bathtub shower, a walk-in style enclosure, or a stand-alone shower stall? Consider the following options:
Bypass or sliding glass doors
Ideal for smaller bathrooms or bathtub showers, bypass or sliding glass doors move along a track at the top edge of the tub and require no floor space. They’re a practical solution for narrow spaces and can still meet your desire to show off your shower without encroaching on your limited floor space.
Pivot or hinged doors
If you prefer your shower door to open and close like a standard door and you have the space to accommodate a full opening, a pivoting shower door fits the bill. This style opens from a single side, with some models swinging both inward and outward, making this option great for corner or alcove walk-in showers.
Rounded or angular shower doors
If you’re looking for great space-saving options for corner-style walk-in shower stalls, consider a round shower door with a curved glass design or one with a neo-angle door, both of which take up less floor space.
Outfit your walk-in shower with a modern barrier-free enclosure, which is fixed on the shower-head side to prevent shower-head spray onto the floor and is open on the other side, which provides easy access in and out.
Shower doors are either framed or frameless.
Framed doors feature a track that collects and traps water, they open outward and come in a variety of finishes to match your traditional or contemporary décor.
Frameless doors are equipped with sturdy tempered glass that can stand alone without metal support along the edges, except for the necessary metal clips, hinges, and handles. Frameless shower doors are costlier but are a great way to showcase a beautifully tiled shower with intricate stonework and upscale fixtures. The unobstructed view also gives the room an airy, open, and modern feel.
Clear glass, frosted or textured
If you have a small bathroom or want to show off a beautiful shower, a clear glass door is the best choice. If you’re looking for privacy or artistic flair, frosted or textured glass makes a smart alternative.
