What To Know Before You Buy Shower Doors
Shower Doors: What To Know Before You Buy
1.A Room With A View
Whether you're adding a new shower or updating an existing one, you'll be making all sorts of crucial decisions, not the least of which are what type of doors to buy. While your choice of enclosure might seem as transparent as well, glass -it's actually a bit more complicated. Facts you'll need to know include the exact dimensions of your shower space, how much room you have between the shower and other fixtures, how much time you want to invest in daily cleanup and whether those frameless shower doors you saw on a design blog are really the best fit for your lifestyle and your wallet.
2.What's So Special About Frameless Doors?

Let's get the big questions out of the way first: What the heck is a frameless shower enclosure and why does everyone seem to want one?
A "frameless" shower enclosure uses sturdy tempered glass (usually 6mm/8mm thick) that does not require the support of metal around its exterior edges. The result is a clean-lined, modern look that is free of visual obstructions. In fact, one reason frameless shower doors are so popular is that they help showcase beautiful stonework, intricate tile designs and gleaming hardware.
One thing to keep in mind,is that frameless doors generally do include some metal. "Frameless units can be virtually metal-free, except for clips on any stationary panels, hinges and handles. What's more, the term "frameless" can also apply to doors with frames along the top edge and around the sides. This type of installation is sometimes — but not always — referred to as "semi-frameless."

If you desire the contemporary look of a frameless enclosure but your layout say "no can do," a semi-frameless model can be a fine alternative. Look for high-quality components such as the permanently bonded hinges, solid handles and patented glass, a semi-frameless pivot door with 6mm thick tempered glass and a taller-than-standard 1900mm height that helps to impart a sleek, streamlined look.
4.Framed Shower Doors

If you're planning to buy a swing-out door, it's a good idea to enlist a professional to help you measure your space. You'll want to make sure there's enough clearance between the fully-opened door and surrounding bath fixtures before installation.
