Choosing The Best Custom Glass Shower Doors Style

Shower enclosures are usually made of glass for additional openness and light in small bathroom spaces. Almost all of these doors are tailor-fitted to suit any available space. As they are tempered and can’t be cut or reshaped in any way after treatment, installation of custom glass shower doors are best done after all the tiles have been set. Thus, planning ahead and considering all options before starting this type project helps save you both time and money. There are various styles and designs of glass doors to choose from. 


Choosing the one that best suits your bathroom depends on the kind of shower you have and the size and placement of its opening.


Here Are the Most Common Styles for Custom Glass Shower Doors and Enclosures You Can Consider


Round Shower Doors

This style is perfect if you own a standalone or alcove shower. Round glass shower doors offer a more spacious area for showering with its curved design. It swings on hinges of the frame and can be installed to open either at the right or left, whichever is more suitable to the design of your bathroom. In cases of remodels, a walk-in shower might be ideal that requires no door, and so, a glass enclosure would be enough. 


Pivot Shower Doors

Pivot glass shower doors are great for huge bathrooms. They are also known as the swing-open door that opens on hinges similar to other doors in your house. These custom glass shower doors are used more often in showers with narrow openings as they are normally installed to open outwards and placed with one or two fixed panels. There must be ample floor space for this door to fully swing. But they can also be mounted to open inwards and to pivot either way.  


Sliding Shower Doors

This last door style is also referred to as bypass doors, which have been in use for many decades now. They are typically made of two or three panels that slide along its tracks at the top and bottom of the shower unit. They are very popular because they need the least amount of space and great for showers that have wide openings.
