1. Configuration

The configuration of your glass shower door or enclosure is the most important factor to consider. That’s because the space you have available determines how much glass can fit into the room. Can your door swing open? Can you fit a sliding glass door? Where are other fixtures in the room? Our team can help you design a glass shower door that’s right for you.

2. Shower Head

You want a shower head that saves water, conforms to the style of your bathroom, rotates and gives you spray options, and doesn’t spray water beyond the perimeter of your shower wall. Springfield Glass Company will help you choose the right glass shower door that meets your needs for how far you want the spray to go based on available space.

3. Measurements

Measuring the available space is crucial to determining how much glass you can install in your shower. Our team will come out, take the appropriate measurements, and then design and install a beautiful glass shower door that works for your exact specifications.

4. Ventilation

No one wants mold and mildew to build up in their bathroom due to the moisture. We’ll consider the ventilation already in your bathroom when designing and installing the right kind of glass shower door or enclosure. You might find you need a glass steam room kit to improve the room’s ventilation.

Framed Shower Doors

Framed shower doors have frames that support the doors because they’re made of thinner glass. The metal frame, constructed of aluminum, may swing open or slide on a track. The glass is sealed into the frame to prevent leaks.

Frameless Shower Doors

Frameless shower doors have thicker glass, which creates a sleeker look. Frameless glass shower doors also make your bathroom appear bigger because the sightlines are unimpeded with opaque metal accents. Frameless shower doors open more easily, and you have more freedom for design choices because of the lack of a frame. This style of glass shower door has a rubber stop on the bottom to prevent water leaks.

Bi-Fold Glass Shower Door

This style of glass shower door is great for a smaller bathroom with limited space. Bi-fold glass shower doors are perfect for corner bathrooms because panels fold inside the shower off to one side. This happens thanks to a pivot point off to one side of the shower. The other panel of the glass shower door runs along a track inside a metal frame.

Curved Glass Shower Door

Curved glass shower doors represent the epitome of class. They also open up your shower while giving your bathroom a larger space to work with. Curved doors usually have a frame at the top and bottom to support the curvature of the glass.

Neo Angle Glass Shower Door

A neo angle glass shower door has a diamond shape, and it works well for corner bathrooms. One angle is at the opposite end of the far corner of your shower, and it forms a flat panel presented to the rest of the bathroom. This flat panel is usually where the door sits. The door swings outward into the rest of the room.
