Why all Glass Shower Doors are Not Created Equal

A glass shower door will enlarge your bathroom and make it feel brighter, all while increasing the value of your home. From layout to space, creating a functional shower is of the utmost importance. You need to consider the functionality and your needs before moving forward. Below are a few suggestions that would work best depending on your space and aesthetic needs.  

Small Bathroom

If you have a small bathroom, you’re going to want a glass shower door that doesn’t take up a lot of space. Additionally, you might want to consider adding more lighting or windows in your bathroom to open it up.  

Your Glass Shower Door options:

  • Bifold door – A bifold door opens in on itself, so it’s a real space saver.
  • Pivot door – If you have a narrow shower door, a pivot door is the best option.
  • Sliding door – Sliding doors will save space and make sure water doesn’t leak anywhere.
  • Clear glass – Clear glass is a great option because it opens up your space and makes it look bigger.

Big Bathroom

If you already have a fairly big bathroom, you have a lot of options for your glass shower door design.  

Your Glass Shower Door options:

  • Walk in shower – Although there are many options, some have the potential to make your bathroom look like a luxurious spa.
  • Partial enclosure – A partial enclosure is functional and works with any design.
  • Swinging door – A swinging door is a great option if you have the space.

Family Bathroom  

If you have kids, you might want to consider a few unique elements that will make your bathroom functional, visually appealing and kid friendly.  

Your Glass Shower Door options:

  • Tub/shower combo – This is helpful at bath time. It makes it easier to bathe your children and helps limit the amount of water that will end up on the floor.
  • Sliding glass doors – Again, this is helpful when it comes time to bathe younger children. The sliding door can limit areas that are affected by bath time fun.
  • Frosted glass – If you’re planning a shower in the master bath, frosted glass is a good option, so that you have privacy.

Your Glass Shower Door options:

  • Curbless shower – This ensures that it’s easy to get in and out of the shower.
  • Seat – Once you’re in the shower, a seat can help with safety.
  • Grab bars – Again, it’s all about safety! Make sure there are grab bars in the shower for stability.
