Considerations for Choosing A Shower Door

Tips From A Specialist On Choosing A New Shower Door

Thinking of remodeling your bathroom or going for an upgrade version of your current shower door? Think Superior Shower Door for all your Sacramento Shower doors needs. As a family-owned business, we understand how hard you work for your home, and we’d like nothing more than to help you upgrade your shower and glass doors within the budget you can afford. But given there are so many options to select from when it comes to glass shower doors, it can be quite difficult to choose your pick. Let’s help you with 4 essential tips when settling on a new shower door.

4 Key Points For New Shower Doors

There are a lot of things that you need to look for when deciding on a new shower door for your bathroom. Below are the top 4 items to consider from premier shower door suppliers, Superior Shower Door.

The type of material used to make the shower door

It is common knowledge that most shower doors are made from tempered glass, although they can be made from other materials like Plexiglas or aluminium. You should always opt for tempered glass though, as this a lot thicker and about 4 times stronger than ordinary glass. Even with those made with tempered glass, there are a wide variety to choose from. For strength and durability and considering that it’s going to be used in an atmosphere that facilitates exposure to hot water, the shower door should consist of 3/8 inch glass thickness.

The way the shower door operates

How you want your shower door to operate – whether they should slide along a track, swing outwards or fold in on themselves to open – basically is up to your desire. In choosing any of the styles noted above, there is also the option of whether the shower doors should come with/without frames. The choice you make depends on how much you can afford, your taste and how functional you want your door to be.

The kind of look you want your door to have

If you are very particular about how your bathroom looks, then by all means opt for a frameless shower door as it offers exquisite and highly attractive looks and designs as compared to framed shower doors. Whilst frameless shower doors are more straightforward to clean and care for than framed shower doors, framed shower doors do a better job at retaining water and steam within a shower enclosure. In the end, it all boils down to what you want in design and functionality as well as your budget.

Whether you Want more special features/designs

When choosing a glass shower door, you should consider whether or not you want to include more bespoke and sophisticated features into the design. For instance,  you may lean towards the creation of a bathroom atmosphere that resembles a spa with steam shower. If this is the case you may have to talk it out with your contractor to see if he can meet your specifications and to see if you have the means to finance the project.
