Frameless shower doors have become a popular choice in modern bathroom renovation, and for a good reason–they add contemporary style and elegance without sacrificing functionality.
But if you’re new to these types of shower doors, you might wonder how they are designed and if they would be the right fit for your bathroom. In this blog post, Springfield Glass Company explains how frameless shower doors are designed and used.
What Are Frameless Shower Doors?
Frameless shower doors are sturdy panels of tempered glass that do not need an aluminum frame to function. Frameless shower doors may have metal hinges or handles.
Homeowners often choose them because of their modern and elegant design, but they also offer a more comprehensive range of motion (swinging both outward and inward) and are easier to clean than standard framed shower doors due to the absence of a metal track.
Are They the Right Option for Me?
Frameless shower doors might be a good choice for you if:
- You’re looking for an updated, modern design
- You have a smaller bathroom and could use a shower that opens inward
- You want to be able to clean your shower more thoroughly and easily
- Your budget will allow for a slightly more expensive shower design
Are They a DIY Project?
This type of shower door is not recommended as a DIY project because glass shower doors must fit properly. If your measurements are even slightly off, the heavy glass on your doors is at risk of shattering, dragging, or allowing water to leak out, causing costly damage.
Your best option is to call a professional to handle your frameless glass shower door installation from start to finish.
