It doesn’t matter whether you are adding a brand-new shower to your project or whether you are working to try and update an existing one because you will be making all kinds of decisions.
You will also need to think about the type of glass you want, how much room you are going to have between fixtures and which option is best for the style you are going for.
Here are some options you might want to consider when picking the right type of shower for your project.
Benefits of Glass Shower Doors for your project
Some of the benefits of opting for a glass shower door include:
· Ease of cleaning
· Ideal for saving space
· Decorative features can be added
· There are numerous styles available
· They suit traditional and modern bathrooms
Glass Shower Door Types
Glass showers are made out of tempered glass and do not require the support of a metal frame around the edges. The end result is a clean and modern look that is free from virtually any obstructions. One reason why they are so popular is because it helps to showcase stonework or even any intricate tiling designs. Frameless doors generally incorporate some metal, including handles or hinges, and you will be paying a lot more money for this design when compared to that of a standard, framed door.
Framed Glass Doors
Just because framed doors are more affordable, doesn’t mean that they cannot be as eye-catching when compared to the frameless alternatives. You can find a lot of shower models that are sturdy as well as chic. Aluminium framing can add both strength and support. This option works very well in traditional or contemporary bathrooms.
Sliding Glass Shower Doors
How your door operates will depend on the style you want for your project and the bathroom layout you have in mind. Sliding doors and dual bypass doors are ideal for tub enclosures or bathrooms which may be more narrow than usual. Sliding doors can vary in price, as it ultimately depends on what glass you want and the style you’re going for.
Pivoting shower doors are otherwise known as hinge doors, or swinging doors. They open in the same way that a normal door would and they can make a very sophisticated statement if you have a cottage or a traditional suite. You have to make sure that you have clearance before the installation takes place, so it’s important to keep this in mind when you are making your choice.
