Whether remodeling or making plans for a new build, the options for your bathroom are more varied than you might realize. A traditional style bathroom could include classic tile and trim designs. A more modern style would be more stark, with clean lines.

No matter what style you decide on, by designing and installing glass shower doors, you increase the beauty, functionality and resale value of your home.

Glass shower doors can be full or partial enclosures, and can be done with or without doors, either hinged or sliding. The design can be done to accommodate various styles from traditional to contemporary, and can be modified to fit your budget. With various types of glass and bevelings, designing your shower and selecting your shower doors can be done to fit your personal style.

As the largest item in the bathroom, your shower design will create the tone for the rest of the room. Having quality shower doors and an artistic design gives the bathroom a high-end look and increases the overall value of the entire home.

Different styles include:

Frameless Enclosures

By using heavy tempered safety glass and limited hardware, a frameless shower enclosure provides a modern, uncluttered look. Having limited hardware can reveal stone, tile, or other beautifying features of the shower's interior.

Framed Enclosures

With tempered safety glass, a framed enclosure can be wrapped in aluminum colored to match the bathroom's overall decor. A frame means a more watertight enclosure than frameless. Frames also offer a more economical option.

Semi-frameless Enclosures

Offering the strength and economy of framed options; a semi-frameless enclosure also allows some glass edges to be exposed, creating an attractive hybrid appearance.

Sliding vs. Hinged Doors

Most traditional shower doors are hinged, but installing a sliding door can prove more practical in a small space. Sliding doors also offer an essential water barrier from the shower to surrounding areas.
