Important Factors to Consider When Choosing a Shower Door

Your shower door will be part of your bathroom for years to come, so it’s important to make the right choice the first time. Fortunately, this isn’t difficult, as there are many shower enclosure solutions for every style and size of a bathroom. You just need to find the best fit for your home. Handyman Connection® of Matthews has the expertise to help you design the perfect bathroom remodel. Here are some things you need to consider when choosing a shower door:

Types of Enclosures

The first thing you should consider is the arrangement of your shower enclosure. Your enclosure’s design will affect the kind of shower door you can install in your bathroom. The traditional shower enclosure is located in the corner of the room. It features a square tray surrounded by a door and several glass panels. Meanwhile, a recessed shower enclosure fits between two walls, making it ideal for small bathrooms. Quadrant shower enclosures, on the other hand, are shaped like a quarter circle. This design saves valuable floor space. There are also walk-in shower designs that are great for a minimalist bathroom.

Types of Doors

Think about what types of shower doors will best fit your available space and your sense of style. Hinged shower doors require extra space to operate while pivot doors rotate on a pin mechanism, so they take up less space. For a larger-looking room, we recommend frameless shower doors. Bi-fold doors fold on hinges and into the shower enclosure. There are also sliding doors that move horizontally, saving a lot of space in your bathroom.

Types of Glass

After you’ve chosen a shower door design, you need to choose the quality of the shower door glass. Check its thickness and make sure you have a feel for how the door moves. Cheaper and thinner glass lacks the feeling of smoothness and weight of a premium shower door. We also recommend paying attention to the protective coating of your shower door glass. This coating prevents staining from hard-water deposits, making the door easy to clean.

A well-designed bathroom is one of the best parts of any home. If you need help with bathroom remodeling, turn to Handyman Connection of Matthews. Contact us today at (704) 255-5626 to learn more about our services. You can also get a free estimate.
