How to Remodel Your Bathroom with a Glass Shower Door

If you want to give your bathroom a face lift, there’s no better solution than a glass shower door. Upgrading to a glass shower door will not only look modern and sleek, but it will also make your bathroom look bigger and brighter. Although, the task may seem easy enough you will have a lot of things to consider! What kind of shower door do you want? What design elements do you want to implement? Below are the top 3 ways to make your glass shower door both stylish and functional. 

Install a Glass Shower Door with a Unique Shape

Once you decide to remodel with a glass shower door, you’ll need to decide what style you want. What you might not realize is that you do not have to stick with the current shape of your shower. You can change it and do whatever works best for the space and your style.

  • Neo-angle

Corner showers not only save space but also look very modern.

  • Alcove

Again, if you don’t have a lot of space, put your shower in an alcove. It blends right in with whatever design you have in mind.

  • Curved glass

Similar to an angled shower door, rounded glass shower doors save space. They also coordinate well with your design.

  • Make it a partial enclosure

Instead of choosing one of the above glass shower door options, you may prefer a partial enclosure. Whether you have a bathtub or a standalone shower, using partial glass will give you a modern look that skips the need for a shower door altogether.

Lastly, you’ll get to choose whether you want a framed or frameless shower door and what kind of glass you want. If you want more privacy, you can go with a frosted glass or textured glass shower door. All the options above work with a framed or frameless door. It simply depends on your personal style.
