Your Options for Shower Door Frames, Waukesha, Wisconsin

If you’re planning a bathroom renovation, one of the projects that can take the room to the next level is a beautiful new shower door. If you’ve never had a new shower door installed, however, there are more varieties than you might think. Understanding the various aspects of the different options will help you make an informed decision about what’s right for your bathroom. To ensure you select a unit that suits your aesthetic and lifestyle, here’s more information about styles.

Different Shower Door Frame Styles


Framed shower doors are classic options that can fit into most bathroom aesthetics. They are affordable, easy to install, and provide a seal that prevents water from pooling outside your unit. However, soap scum may develop around the frame and require cleaning. Without proper cleaning, the aluminum frame may corrode.

A middle ground between framed and frameless doors, a semi-frameless unit is enclosed by an aluminum frame everywhere except for the door itself. This gives the door a more contemporary look than a full framed option, but also provides the water-tight benefits of having a frame. If you want to maintain a modern style but don’t want to spend time cleaning, this might be the option for you.
