Every little detail is important in the interior of your bathroom. But usually we don’t pay much attention before choosing a design for our bathroom in general, let alone the shower door. Well, not all shower doors are the same. So let’s figure out what kind of shower door you should pick!
We start with the basics: there are two general kinds of shower doors: framed and frameless.
Framed Shower Doors
Framed shower doors feature frames usually made of aluminum or composite materials available in a variety of finishes. They include a track which collects water and requires regular cleaning.
Frameless Shower Doors
Frameless shower doors are more modern. It’s usually appreciated in contemporary interior design for their simplicity and ability to create a sense of spaciousness. It’s also much easier to clean. Drawbacks: It is heavier, more expensive and difficult to install.
Sliding Shower Doors
It’s quite simple: sliding doors overlap with a smooth, quiet sliding action and allow entrance into a shower or a tub. It’s available in an array of styles and are most popular in corner stand-alone showers. Obvious benefit here: it takes the least amount of space.
Pivit Shower Doors
These are hinged slabs of thick glass that pivot open/closed just like any other door. It can be mounted to swing both in and out in order to fit the layout of the bathroom. Drawback: not well suited for small bathrooms.
Last, but not least, there are glass options, too. It can be clear or frosted. Clear glass shower doors let light pass through and make the room appear more spacious. On the other hand, frosted glass provides a sense of privacy, that some people prefer.
