Choosing the Right Shower Doors

Choosing the Right Shower Doors


Choosing the Right Shower DoorsIf you're remodeling your bathroom or building a new home, there are plenty of decisions you're going to have to make, from flooring to paint colors. Right in the middle of it all will be your shower, a bathroom focal point and a place where you will be spending many mornings. The right shower door for your new bathroom will be based on a variety of factors, including budget, preferred looks and the layout of the room. When it comes down to it, you'll have three basic options (any many options within those), which are frameless shower doors, semi-frameless shower doors and framed shower doors. Let's take a closer look at each to find out which may be right for you.

Frameless Shower Doors

Among the most popular shower doors are those considered to be frameless. These doors are beloved for their elegant appearance that makes it easy to show off impressive stonework within a shower or tub space. While virtually free of visual obstructions, frameless tubs may include hardware, clips, stationary panels or frames along the top edge to improve structural integrity. When purchasing a frameless shower door, you can expect to pay about twice as much as a framed shower door that would fit the same space.

Semi-Frameless Shower Doors

A more affordable, yet still striking option, is a semi-frameless shower door. This contemporary design is made from high quality components and is available in many styles, including popular pivot doors. The term semi-frameless relates to the frame that generally follows the outer edge of the door and any stationary panels.

Framed Shower Doors

While the most affordable option, framed shower doors hold their own qualities and beauty. With numerous options available to fit all sizes of showers and tubs, framed doors remain popular for their price point, but also for their refined, yet classic appearance. These sturdy doors are perfect for all types of bathrooms, and when combined with framing options that match the decor, you'll be pleased with the final appearance.
