Differences between Framed and Frameless Shower Doors

December 12, 2019

When deciding to get glass shower doors for your Toronto home, there are a number of things to consider before settling on a final design. The chief distinction between glass shower door designs is whether or not they are framed. Both types of shower doors have different advantages and specifications to keep in mind.


Here are three factors you should consider regarding the framing of your glass shower doors:


1. Installation

Since framed doors have thinner glass, they are easier to install for standard shower spaces. On the other hand, you will need to look for a professional installer for of frameless glass shower doors in Toronto, as frameless doors are much more difficult to install. With that said frameless doors provide greater opportunities for customization, making them ideal for unique shower spaces.


2. Aesthetics

Frameless glass shower doors in Toronto are becoming more popular thanks to their clean look. They also make your shower area look and feel bigger. That is not to say that framed shower doors cannot look stylish - you can still match the metal frames to other decorative elements in your bathroom by playing with colour or motif.


3. Maintenance

When it comes to framed shower doors, maintenance or repair can be troublesome because you may need to look for replacement parts that match the existing frame. Also, certain repair procedures require disassembly. Frameless glass shower doors are preferred because they are easier to maintain and replacement parts can be found quickly due to the simplicity of the parts. Moreover, it is even easier to clean frameless shower doors because of the absence of a frame. Water and dirt will not build up as much, preventing mildew or mold from forming.
