3 Tips To Keep In Mind When Buying A New Sliding Glass Shower Doors

If you are looking for an economical and practical way to refresh your bathroom then new shower doors could just be the way to go.  A shower curtain is a simple and sufficient way for you to keep water off the floor of the bathroom.  But, a shower door is able to provide a solution that is somewhat elegant providing you with a seal that is water-tight, easy shower access, and privacy.   Some important things to keep in mind before you buy are:

  • Measuring
  • Style
  • Hardware Coordination

You will find that replacing or adding new sliding glass shower doors is not as expensive as you might have thought.  Some doors will cost more than others depending on the style that you choose for your shower.

Measuring and making sure that you hardware coordinates with what's already in your bathroom are of the topmost importance when you are shopping for a new door.

Measure

Your new shower door needs to make the shower opening width and height.  IF the area for enclosure is new, do not take your measurements until it is completed and the walls have been finished.  Material added to a wall, such as fiberglass, tile, or acrylic backer-board can reduce the width measurement by as much as an inch one each side.

For accurate measuring make sure that you measure at least two times, a new shower door does you no good if it won't fit correctly.  The first measurement that you need to take is to determine the wall to wall distance at the bottom and the top of the opening. Round the measurement that you get to the nearest sixteenth of an inch. The second measurement is taken from the tubs edge to the where you want the door to stop.

Style

There are several styles of sliding glass shower doors. The first aspect that you might want to consider is the type of glass that you want for your shower door.  Do you want to be able to have privacy in the shower, or would you like for it to be transparent?  This comes down to a personal preference, everyone is different on what they find most suitable for their home.

Another thing that you will need to determine is if you will be using a full shower door or just a partial door.  This is going to depend on whether you will be using the door for a shower and tub combination, or if you simply have a stand-alone shower.  You also can think about any additional features that you would like your shower to have and the type of hardware that you want to be used.

Hardware Coordination

Coordinating the hardware is an easy part of selecting a new shower door that can be forgotten.  You want to make sure that you are matching to the rest of the hardware in the bathroom as closely as possible. However, the good news is that you can also use the new shower door as an opportunity to update the hardware of the whole bathroom.

If you are looking for a completely new look then now is the chance for you to achieve that.  Simply changing some of the door handles, or drawer knobs in your bathroom can provide you with a new fresh look with little effort and little cost.
