How to Choose the Best Shower Door

A shower door is designed to contain water splashing about within the shower area. There are different types of shower doors, and some options possibly giving you better results than others, depending on your specific needs. Here are a few tips if you’re having trouble picking the best option.

Check for Space

Your ideal shower doors depend on how much floor area is available. A sliding door comes in two panels, which means it’s almost always used for shower areas with wider openings. If shower space is limited, you’re better off with a round or pivot-style shower door.

Check the Location

You also have to narrow down your list based on where your shower area is located. If your shower area is located in a corner of the bathroom, round doors offer the most practical option, with single-paneled swing doors being a good alternative. If your shower area occupies at least two corners of the room, double-paneled swing doors or sliding doors are your best options.

Choose Between Frameless and Framed Options

Framed shower doors are great if you have a limited budget. Their main downside is that the frames supporting the glass panels tend to be easily noticeable. If you want something that provides a clearer view of the bathroom, you can try frameless doors, but they tend to cost more because of the thicker, sturdier glass panels.

Privacy and Aesthetics

You can also enhance the overall look of your bathroom by choosing between etched, stained or clear glass. Each option provides varying levels of privacy and visual impact. Note that a stained and etched glass generally costs more than clear glass panels, but they provide some degree of extra privacy.
