Need A New Shower Door? Tips To Choose The Right One For Your Bathroom

Construction & Contractors Blog

If your shower door is getting old this can be an eyesore in your bathroom. When you start shopping for a shower door for your bathroom, you will find many options available on the market today. This can make it difficult to know what would work best for you. To help you, below are three tips to ensure the shower door you choose will work well for you and your family.

Shower Door Types

There are many types of shower doors available, including the following.

Sliding Doors

A common type of shower door is the sliding door. These work well if you have a small bathroom. This is because these doors take up no room in your bathroom space as you do not have to open them outward. You will find these doors with either two panels or three panels. The doors are placed on tracks that are placed on the bottom and top of the shower door. You should consider how wide your shower opening is, as you do need to have room to install a shower door that has two or more panels.

Pivot Doors

Pivot showers swing open on a hinge. These doors open outward, so you have to have enough floor space in your bathroom to accommodate the door when opening it. These doors can only be used if you have a standalone shower.

Round Doors

You will also find round shower doors, which open inward. This would be a good choice for you if you are installing the shower door in a corner of your bathroom. This type of door gives you much more room inside the shower.

Bifold Doors

Another type you will find is a bifold shower door. This type slides and opens inward. This door has two glass panels that are attached with a hinge. When you open the door, you pull a handle inward.

Framed or Frameless

One thing you have to consider is if you want a shower door that has no frame or one that has a frame. If you want frameless, it does depend on the type of shower door you choose. For example, frameless works well for pivot doors but you can also choose frameless for other types. Frameless doors are much easier to clean as there is no frame involved. Frameless doors also offer more aesthetics in your bathroom.

Framed shower doors are much less expensive when compared to frameless. The doors are also completely sealed and framed doors are more easily available. It is less complicated to install a framed shower door also. You do have to consider that the frames make the door harder to clean and the frames will also corrode over time.

Talk to a salesperson where you buy shower doors and they can give you more information to help you make the best choice.
