How to Choose the Right Shower Doors

When renovating your bathroom, there are a lot of decisions that need to be made, and one of those is which shower doors to use. You might think the decision is easy– just use glass! However, there are a lot more details and facts that you will need to know before finalizing your shower door decision. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right shower doors for your shower enclosure.

  • Choose The Style of Door- You need to know what style of door is going to work best for your shower before you choose. For example, if you have a narrow shower stall, it would be best to use a pivoting shower door. Look at the type of shower/tub you have and then search through different styles of shower doors to find one that is going to be the best fit and most functional.
  • Pick Your Glass- One of the most popular shower door glass options is clear glass. The transparency of clear glass allows light to enter into your shower and bounce around your bathroom, helping to make it lighter. Clear glass also can help make your bathroom seem more spacious. The other option is frosted glass. The nice thing about frosted glass is that it offers more privacy, but it also blocks more light, which can make your bathroom seem smaller.
  • Know the Exact Measurements- Before finalizing your shower door order, triple-check the measurements of your shower opening so that you are positive your new shower doors will fit. You want to use the width at the widest point of your shower’s opening to determine the size of door you need to order.

These tips will help you know what to look for and help you make an informed decision when shopping for new shower doors.
