There is now another option, which is becoming increasingly popular. It is the frameless glass shower door.
This is made out of thicker, tempered (i.e. strengthened) glass. This means that no metal is needed to strengthen and support the door, only to secure the panels to your wall or shower unit.
As the door is made of thicker glass, it will last 3 or 4 times as long as the traditional design. Naturally, this is a huge benefit as it’s uncommon for people to replace their bathrooms frequently.
Another clear (no pun intended…) benefit is the look. A frameless glass shower door gives a much cleaner, more streamlined, modern, minimalist look to your bath or shower room.
Benefit number 3 is added value to your home. We all know that the 2 rooms which sell a house are the kitchen and the bathroom.
Have you ever got into your shower and looked at all the dirt and grime that the frame is harboring? I know I have…and there then followed a cleaning frenzy! A frameless glass shower door has next to nowhere for dirt and grime to lurk in, making keeping them clean and hygienic much easier. After all, who wants to spend time cleaning the shower? Serious benefit!
The glass comes in different finishes -clear, frosted, patterned etc. While the same can be said of doors with frames, the beauty of a frameless glass shower door is more obvious as is your choice of the finish or pattern of the glass.
All in all, there are a number of significant benefits to considering a frameless glass shower door the next time you upgrade you bathroom.
