Types of Shower Doors

Here are four types of shower doors and enclosures provided by Glass Doctor:

1. Frameless Shower Door

A frameless shower door is made of a single pane and pivots out into the room for a clean, modern look. Not only is this pivot door elegant and stylish, but it’s also one of the more durable and structurally sound options.

2. Frameless Shower Enclosure

For larger bathrooms, consider a frameless shower enclosure to add dimension to your room. Like frameless doors, this design gives your bathroom a clean and modern feel.

Enclosures can be rectangular or hexagonal, depending on the configuration of your bathroom and budget.

3. Bi-Fold Shower Doors

Bi-fold shower doors are great for bathrooms with limited space, like corner bathrooms. These doors feature panels that fold inside the shower, allowing you to utilize your space as much as possible.

Not only are these doors a practical solution for smaller bathrooms, but they are also extremely affordable.

4. Curved Glass Shower Door

If you want to create a walk-in shower, curved glass doors can open up your shower and give the feeling of a larger space. Curved glass doors feature a frame at the top and bottom of the door.

What Should I Consider Before Installation?

Our certified professionals recommend considering the following factors before installation:

  • Configuration—This is important because the makeup of your walls and surrounding supports will influence how much weight can be supported with your new fixture.
  • Shower heads—Think about selecting a shower head that won’t spray water beyond the parameters of the shower wall.
  • Measurements—It’s best to let experts measure the shower area so they make sure they have the correct measurements before installation. This will also help Glass Doctor provide you with an upfront, flat-rate estimate.
  • Ventilation—We’ll evaluate the ventilation in your bathroom so you can avoid moisture buildup, mold and mildew. If necessary, we will install glass steam room kits to improve ventilation.
