7 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Getting a Glass Shower Door
Renovating your shower enclosure is exciting. However, the process can be confusing. Where do you start? Today, you'll learn the top 7 questions you need to ask yourself before getting a glass shower door.
1. What type of glass shower door do you want?
Before you start thinking about the type of glass shower door you want, consider your floorplan and bathroom configuration. Do you have space for that swinging shower door? Or perhaps your shower is in the corner, so you need a neo-angle door. There are several types of shower doors that you can choose from, such as a swinging, sliding, or bifold shower door. Think about your space before you decide the type of shower enclosure you want.
2. What style shower door do you want?
Now that you know the type of glass shower door you want, it's time to consider the style. If you're going for a modern, minimalistic look, a frameless shower door is a great option. However, if you want more pizazz, you can go for a stylish framed shower door. If you want the best of both worlds, a semi-framed shower door is the way to go.
3. Will you be adding a completely new glass shower door or updating an existing shower?
This is important to consider, because it will impact the style. If you have a tub, you could get a tub/shower combo. If you have a narrow shower stall, a bifold shower door might be the best option.

4. Have you measured your bathroom?
Again, think about your space. You should have an idea of what your shower measurements are before calling a glass company.
5. What kind of glass do you want?
Once you have an idea of the style and size of your shower enclosure, think about what type of glass you want. You have several options: Clear, frosted, partially frosted, patterns, textures, etc. It's helpful to look up pictures online for inspiration.
6. What's your budget?
It's important to know what your budget is before you get attached to a certain kind of glass shower door. For reference, the average cost of glass shower doors is about $1,200-1,800.

7. What will the installation process be like?
Once you've answered the questions above, you're ready to contact a glass company. Start by calling and asking if they do free onsite measurements/estimates. Then, ask them how long the whole process will take from beginning to end. Being informed about the installation process will be helpful in your shower enclosure upgrade.
Finding the perfect glass shower door for your bathroom is an exciting experience. Being prepared for the process will help make it as seamless as possible.
