Your shower is a sanctuary — a retreat from daily life that leaves you feeling wonderfully clean. And when you upgrade your shower, you can make your showering experience that much better! Here’s an overview of some of the shower types you might consider.
If you’ve begun perusing showers for sale, you may have seen a range of both framed and frameless showers. The type you choose is up to you, and each has its advantages and disadvantages.
Framed showers have a metal frame — usually made of aluminum — around each panel. Some have special metal finishes to suit different aesthetics. For instance, for a warm, traditional look, you might opt for an oil-rubbed bronze shower door.
Framed showers come with several advantages, including:
If you value durability and utility and don’t mind a bit of extra cleaning, a framed shower might be right for you.
Frameless showers are made of glass panels with no frame. Because of their minimalist design, they are a popular choice for many homeowners today.
This innovative design comes with a range of advantages, including:
With proper installation, a frameless shower can be a beautiful addition to your bathroom, especially as a corner shower.
Whether you choose a framed or frameless shower, you have plenty of options for types of glass shower doors.
Sliding shower doors are ideal for saving space in smaller bathrooms. These bathtub shower doors are made of two panels. With a single sliding door, one panel moves. With a dual sliding door, both panels move.
The pivot door is the most common type of frameless shower door, as the pivot hinge is less visible than traditional hinges. Pivot doors can swing both ways. Before you install one, make sure your bathroom has enough space to accommodate the open door.
These doors are typically found on framed showers, as the hinges can easily be incorporated into the metal frame. Hinged shower doors open one way.
