Whether you’re building a new custom shower or you’re just remodeling an existing one, one of the most important decisions you’ll make during the process is what type of shower door you’re going to install. The wrong choice here can ruin the overall look of your shower.
However, the right shower door can truly enhance your shower, transforming it into a unique and beautiful work of art. Each type of shower door has its own unique appearance that can fit different tastes. Some are intended for specific shower designs, such as those built into a corner. There are pivot shower doors, as well as doors that slide and hinge. Some have metal frames that surround the glass while others are completely frameless.
With so many shower door options to choose from, it can start to get overwhelming. Don’t worry, we’ve broken down nine different types of shower doors so that you can understand the differences between each of them.
This is the standard type of shower door that most of us are most familiar with. They’re cost-effective and easier to install than frameless doors. In fact, homeowners with some DIY experience may even be able to install them themselves. Framed setups can be sliding doors, hinged doors, or pivot shower doors. A framed shower door has a metal frame that goes all the way around the perimeter to provide strength and stability. While it does this job well, it comes with an unintended side effect. The metal used for the frame can detract from the overall looks of the shower.
Simple yet elegant, frameless shower doors are almost entirely glass. With no metal frame around the perimeter, they’re not only attractive, but they’re also difficult to install. They can be sliding doors, hinged doors, or pivot shower doors. The glass used for these doors is very thick since there is no frame to add strength and stability. The glass must be able to support its own weight by whatever method it’s mounted. Naturally, they’re more expensive than framed shower doors because of this, but also because of how aesthetically pleasing they are. Since they are more difficult to install, you’ll likely need to hire a professional.
Also known as bypass doors, sliding shower doors work similarly to a sliding patio door, except that both panels will slide so you can enter your shower from either side. In a framed system, the doors are contained inside of tracks in the frame. For a frameless setup, a metal track bar is mounted across the top of the front of the shower enclosure. The glass panels will hang on the track bar with rollers that will slide across the bar with ease. This type of shower door can be pretty difficult to install though, so you may want to consider contacting a professional. Remember that sliding doors can only be used on showers with a large enough opening for two full-size glass doors to fit. Smaller shower entryways won’t be able to use a sliding door.
