Four More Factors to Consider Before Choosing the Best Glass Shower Door for You

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.

What Is a Neo Angle Shower Door? Our Shower Glass Expert Answers.

Shower glass comes in many shapes and sizes. You may choose sliding glass doors for convenience or doors that open into the bathroom if you have enough space. Some glass shower enclosures come out to an angle, much like a corner of a room. In today’s blog from Springfield Glass Company, our shower glass expert answers, “What is a neo angle shower door?”

Corner Shower

Neo angle showers sit in the corner of your bathroom. They’re great for small bathrooms where space is limited. The innermost corner of your shower often sits on the opposite side of the room from the door. Shower glass for neo angle enclosures looks like it fills the entire corner in a square shape, except the corner that is closest to you has a rounded edge or a flat edge.

Diamond Shape

Neo angle shower glass doors can create a diamond-like shape. In a diamond gem, you see a pointed end with angles going upward and then a flat edge. When you have a neo angle shower, the top of the diamond is the edge you see closest to you, and that’s the edge that forms the door. 

How the Angles Work

Where the shower glass door meets the front of the shower, the glass sits at a 135-degree angle. Every other angle measures 90 degrees, meaning the glass is at a perpendicular point against the wall. The two pieces of glass coming out from the wall meet the third piece at different angles so they can open properly and into the space of your bathroom. All neo angle shower doors have three pieces.

Opening Outward

One thing all neo angle shower glass doors have in common is how they open. Every door on a neo angle shower opens outward. They can’t slide because of the way the angles work. Even in a small bathroom, these shower glass doors offer a stylish addition to your home when you want to refresh your bathroom decor.
