Four Questions to Ask Before Installing Glass Shower Doors In Your Home

As overwhelming as they can be, home renovations are exciting. Giving your space a fresh look and feel should be a fun and relatively easy process.

Bathrooms have a few more spatial and plumbing limitations that can affect your renovations. However, installing glass shower doors is one of the most popular ways to transform a bath area – and it’s easy to see why. Glass shower enclosures open up your space, making it feel bigger, brighter and more sophisticated.

If you’re considering replacing your shower curtain with glass shower doors, here are the four things you need to ask yourself before deciding on a style!

What Style Should You Choose?

Not all shower doors are created equal. Some have sliding doors, and some pivot outward  – you can even choose between framed and frameless glass shower enclosures.

A skilled glasswork company will work with you to design and install the perfect glass shower doors for your personal style. Whether you prefer a sleek, classic look or prefer to add a little privacy with frosted glass, the right contractor can help you bring your vision to life.

How Much Space Do You Have to Work With?

The placement of your shower and the size of your bathroom will impact the kind of glass shower doors you can have installed.

If your bathroom is smaller or your shower is in a corner, frameless glass shower doors are a great way to open up the room and make it feel bigger and brighter. 

Are There Any Important Features You’d Like?

Every homeowner has different needs and a different vision for their space. Researching different styles and features can help you get a clearer idea of what exactly you’d like your shower to look like. 

When working with your glasswork and glazing contractor, let them know about any special features you want included. A skilled contractor will be able to incorporate as many of these factors as possible and let you know if there are any spatial or structural limitations.

How Long Should You Expect Installation to Take?

Installation time will vary depending on several factors. The contractor you work with and the availability of materials can shorten or lengthen the process. Regardless, your contractor should provide you with an estimate for how long they expect your installation to take during your consultation.
