How to Pick Glass Shower Doors, Nicholasville, Kentucky

Glass shower doors can significantly enhance your bathroom’s appearance and function, but you need the right type of door to achieve the best results for your space. With a custom-fitted shower enclosure, you’ll get the looks and performance necessary to turn your bathroom into a luxurious spa.

Understanding Shower Door Options

First, it helps to understand what type of glass shower door you’d like for your bathroom. There are three main types of door installations. Sliding doors allow two panels to slide past each other so you can open an enclosure from either the left or right. Pivoting, or hinged, doors open like a typical door, but require space to accommodate an open door. Tub doors are like sliding doors, but they set on top of a shower-and-tub enclosure.

Your next choice involves framed or frameless shower doors. Framed shower doors have aluminum rims to provide sturdy support. Frameless doors use thick tempered glass to allow for a nearly metal-free design. Although this sleek look is more expensive than framed doors, it’s airier and adds a contemporary flair.

After determining shower door style, hone in on smaller elements, like glass type and measurements. Would you rather have clear glass or patterned, semiopaque glass? How thick do you want the glass to be? Thickness affects the door’s look, weight, and price.

Always measure a shower enclosure multiple times to ensure you have the right measurements for new doors. Last, select a metal finish that matches the rest of your bathroom fittings and decor.
