What Every Buyer Needs to Know About Tub Shower Doors

Many homeowners prefer the look and function of glass shower tubs over shower curtains. Luckily, there are versions available that can be installed even if you have a bathtub. Tub shower doors operate similar to those associated with walk-in showers and are available in a range of glass styles including:

  • Clear
  • Textured
  • Frosted

Tub shower doors don’t go all the way to the floor as traditional shower doors do. Instead, they end at the top of the tub, keeping water in the space without having to drape a shower curtain into the tub.

Additionally, since the doors are made of glass, they let additional light into the shower, making them ideal for darker bathrooms.

Framed or Frameless

Typically, the first choice you need to make when purchasing tub shower doors is whether you want them to be framed or frameless. A framed door features a metal edging along the edges of the glass, which may provide additional support and is typically less expensive. Frameless tub shower doors don’t have the metal edging.

Instead, the glass is left visible, creating a more seamless look, but at a higher cost. However, frameless doors aren’t completely free of hardware, as the connections to the bath surround are necessary as well as any handles. Both framed and frameless options typically operate the same, so the primary difference tends to be aesthetic.

Sliding or Swing

In the vast majority of cases, tub shower doors are sliding. They generally have a track near the lower, upper, or both top and bottom edges, with one pane of glass sliding behind the other when the door is opened. Often, the sliding tub shower door design is ideal, as it doesn’t require any additional space to operate.

So, if you have a toilet or vanity nearby that could impede a swinging door, choosing a sliding option is wise. However, a swinging door may still be an option, if you truly prefer to go that route, but you might have to order a custom tub shower door as they aren’t widely available as pre-fabricated models.

Screen or Full Coverage

When you purchase tub shower doors, you also have an alternative option to consider that may provide the look and function you need at a potentially lower cost. Bathtub screens are a single pane of glass that typically extends about midway across the length of your tub, with the other half remaining open.

This design prevents water from exiting the space but doesn’t require an actual door. Generally, framed and frameless options are available, so you can still select a design based on your preferred aesthetic, but less hardware is typically required, so frameless models can practically seem invisible. Full coverage doors feature the door and a stationary panel, making it less likely water will run out of the tub when you take a shower since the span the entire length of the tub.
