Choosing a Shower Door

Posted by Daniel Edelman on

With so many tile and surface options on the market today, showcase your work of art with a glass enclosure. Choose from different configurations, styles, glass options and finishes to complete your look. Here is a quick guide to help get you started.
1. Choose your door configuration.
 
Tub/Shower:

 

Corner:

 

Alcove:

 

Custom:

2. Choose your frame style and glass thickness.
Framed: Metal framework secures the unit in the door opening. Door and panels are both framed in metal. Glass thickness is generally 3/16”.
Semi-frameless: Metal framework secures the unit in the opening. Doors have no metal framing on the glass panels. Glass thickness options include: 3/16”, 1/4”, and 3/8”.
Frameless: Depending on the configuration of the shower door, the shower door is secured by heavy duty hinges, pivots, and/or a header. Glass thickness options include: 3/8” and 1/2”.

3. Select your glass and frame finish.

For your frame and hardware on the shower door, select from a variety of metal finishes that coordinate with your faucets.

Glass options will vary from manufacturer and door style. Clear is always a clean and classic look that opens up the bathroom. If you are looking for a little more privacy, patterned glass options are available.
