How to Choose the Right Shower Door

Not everyone has unlimited money to spend on a bathroom remodeling project. Still, you can have a smart and sleek shower door today if you’re familiar with the right products and systems. Here are five cutting-edge ideas to save on your glass shower door.

Get a Shaped Base Designed With a Shaped Shower Door In Mind

A curved glass door creates a great shower, but a custom curved door and bent glass are too costly for the average homeowner. Fit a production-made curved glass enclosure with your curved shower floor plan. This will cost only about 75% of a custom glass door.

Contemporary Finishes Beat Traditional

Traditional bathrooms focus on furniture-grade cabinets, rich wood and oil-rubbed finishes. Today, contemporary is the cutting-edge design desired in bathrooms, such as sleek, wall-hung cabinets and clear, frameless glass enclosures. In addition, the preferred hardware finish is chrome, which is more cost-effective.

A Semi-Frameless Glass Needs Less Cleaning Than a Frameless Door

True, the heavy and thick frameless doors are cooler. They are also more expensive, though. Instead, choose a semi-frameless shower door. It creates a nice look and gets rid of the nasty task of cleaning the bottom of a frameless shower door.

Don’t Buy a Shower Door—Buy a Shower Kit

Look to buy a complete “shower kit” (a shower base, shower wall panels and glass enclosure) as a package. If you buy the components you will have to worry if the components will work together. Buying a complete system eliminates guesswork and saves you money.

Shower remodeling and buying a glass shower door doesn’t have to be a complicated experience. For help and wholesale supply, call Handyman Connection of Butler-Warren at (513) 282-3032.
