The choice of door for your shower is something most homeowners gloss over during a bathroom remodel, unaware how important it is in terms of utility and even looks. There are many kinds to choose from and while they appear alike, each one operates differently.
In this post, our experts at Handyman Connection of Rockville discuss the different kinds of shower doors and which one to pick for your next bathroom remodel.
Pivot Shower Doors
This is the standard swing-out door, and though it may seem dated, it’s still a popular and accessible door design. It remains the top choice for standalone showers and bathrooms with small to medium floor space. If your shower space is less than 60 inches and is consequently too small for a sliding door, we suggest you get this one.
Sliding shower doors are a great alternative to the traditional swing-out doors. Since they slide open, they take up less bath space as they don’t need to swing inside or outside the shower space. While they are the better fit for smaller bath space, the shower area needs to be fairly large to accommodate the sliding mechanism of the door, so keep this little detail in mind.
Round Shower Doors
This is another design alternative to the usual swing-out doors, and they are one of the few door styles that actually open inwards. Since it has a slightly restrictive design, this door best fits corner showers thanks to its rounded edges. One of its unique feature is that it’s easy to clean since there are no corners you have to dig into.
Bifold Shower Doors
Bifold Doors are a combination of pivot and sliding doors. When you slide the door open, it folds in on itself and settles on the side of the shower. Because of the intricacy of this door design, it’s also usually the most expensive. It’s the most eye-catching door, though, and really adds a unique touch to your bathroom.
