4 Tips For Looking For The Right Show Door

When remodeling your bathroom, you need to pay attention to all the details of your remodel. When choosing a shower door think about the style you want, choose the type of glass, consider the hardware, and always measure the space multiple times.

#1 Choose A Shower Door Style

The first thing you need to do is choose a glass shower door style. There are a couple of different types of glass style door you can choose from. The first style of glass shower door is a tub door, where you have a tub that is about a foot and a half tall, with sliding glass doors on the top of the tub. The second style of glass shower door is a pivot door, that pivots open into the bathroom space. The third style of glass shower door is a typical shower door, that slides open and closed. The fourth style of glass shower door is an enclosed shower, where two or three sides of the shower are made out of glass.

#2 Decide What Type Of Glass To Use

Second, you need to choose the type of glass that you want to install on your shower door. You can install clear glass that will let in a lot of light into your shower. Or you can install frosted glass that will still let in light, but provide you with a greater sense of privacy. Or you can install colored glass that is either clear or frosted that will lend more to the overall color scheme and design of your bathroom.

#3 Find Hardware That You Like

Third, you need to pick out the hardware that will go with your glass shower door. You can choose the type of hinges and handles that your glass shower door has; you don't have to go with whatever is on the default model that you see in the store. The type of hardware you choose can change the overall feeling of your bathroom. Ideally, you'll want to match the hardware on your glass shower door with the hardware on the cabinets in your bathroom.

#4 Always Measure Double

Finally, remember always to measure, measure, and measure again before ordering glass shower doors. It is important to get the measurements for your space correctly. Find out from the manufacturer how to correctly measure your space for a glass shower door, and then measure multiple times to make sure that your measurements are correct before you order your glass shower doors.
