One of the best ways to make a change to your bathroom is to get a new shower door. Aside from keeping shower water from splashing all over the place, a shower door also has a big impact on the overall look of the bathroom. A bathroom remodeling company like us can offer several types of shower doors, each with their own defining characteristics. Here is a quick overview of the most popular options you can get.
Frameless shower doors are known for their large transparent glass panels that lack any visible frames. The panels are made of sturdy tempered glass and are held by the hinges directly attached to them instead. Frameless shower doors are a popular option for homeowners who prefer showing off their bathroom’s stonework or tile designs.
A more affordable alternative to frameless shower doors, framed doors also use feature large glass panels, but are also bordered by metal frames for extra support. The frames are usually made of aluminum or stainless steel to prevent them from rusting over time. A bathroom remodeler can also install a “hybrid” version with a large main frame and a frameless moving panel.
Sliding doors are a common option for areas with a limited floor area. Because the moving panels are confined to the frame, there’s no need to worry about them bumping into something when opening or closing. For easier operation, sliding shower doors have rollers on the top and bottom rails, with rubber insulation to the side to make sure water does not seep out when the shower is in use.
A bi-fold shower door is a perfect option for those who want a hinged door’s ability to open wide and a sliding door’s lack of need for free floor space. As their name implies, bi-fold doors have panels that fold into smaller halves so they don’t have to stick out their full width when opened. Since bi-fold doors have more moving components than other options, it’s highly recommended to seek out professional bathroom remodeling services to avoid problems during installation.
