3 Things You Need to Consider When Choosing a Shower Door

Your shower door will be part of your life for years to come, so you need to think carefully. There are many shower enclosure solutions for every style and size of bathroom. It’s just a matter of finding the best fit for your home. Handyman Connection of Santa Clarita Valley has the expertise to help you design the perfect bathroom remodel. Here are a few tips to help you:

Types of Shower Enclosure

The first thing you need to consider is the arrangement of your shower enclosure. Each enclosure design affects the kinds of shower doors you can install in your bathroom. The traditional shower enclosure is located in the corner of the room. It has a square tray surrounded by a door and glass panels. A recessed shower enclosure, on the other hand, fits between two walls. It’s perfect for small bathrooms. Quadrant shower enclosures have the shape of a quarter circle. This design saves valuable floor space. Lastly, there’s the walk-in shower for a minimalist look.

Types of Shower Doors

Handyman Connection of Santa Clarita Valley recommends thinking about what types of shower doors will best fit your available space and your sense of style. Hinged shower doors open into the room, so they require clearance. Pivot doors rotate on a pin mechanism and take up less space than a hinged door. Frameless shower doors create the illusion of more space. Bifold doors fold on hinges and fold into the shower enclosure. Lastly, sliding doors move horizontally, saving a lot of space in your bathroom.

Glass Quality

After choosing your shower door design, you need to pay attention to the quality of the shower door glass. Check the glass thickness and make sure that you have a feel for how the door moves. Less expensive and thinner glass can lack the feeling of smoothness and weight of a premium shower door. You also need to pay attention to the protective coating of our shower door glass. This coating prevents staining from hard-water deposits and make the door easy to clean.

A well designed bathroom is one of the best parts of any house. It’s a private, comfortable, and beautiful space where you can relax and wash your tiredness and worries away.
