CUSTOM Shower Enclosures
Custom Shower Doors Can Have A Huge Impact On The Look And Feel Of Your Bathroom!
These days custom shower doors come in a wide variety of styles and designs. It's worth putting some
thought into finding one that both suits your bathroom needs, showcases your design taste and also looks
great. Installing a shower stall enclosure can bring your bathroom up to date in terms of style and
functionality, but careful consideration is important when choosing which type of custom shower door would
work best in your particular bathroom. As well as choosing a door that looks sleek and modern, the size and
layout of your bathroom must be taken into account.
Sliding shower doors are the most common type. They take up the least amount of room, and can be fitted
above a bathtub where space is at a premium. Because they glide open and shut, bypass sliding doors need
tracks to operate. One downside of this design is that dirt and oil can accumulate in the tracks, which can be
difficult to keep clean. Another disadvantage is that because of the nature of their design, sliding doors
overlap, again causing potential cleaning issues.
Another sort is Pivot shower doors, which swing open on hinges. Folding doors are excellent for creating an
elegant look and feel, but they do require enough space to be able to open outward. They can swing both
ways, or just in one direction. A single action door must open outwards into the bathroom to prevent the user
becoming stuck inside the shower enclosure. For this reason you will need to pay attention to the positioning
of your bathroom fixtures to make sure the door doesn"t hit your sink, for example.
Frameless custom shower doors made from all glass are a popular style these days, they help create a more
open and lighter feeling, suggesting an illusion of space. They are also easier to keep clean than traditional
framed models. custom shower door hardware comes in a choice of finishes, including chrome and brass, so
you can match it to your faucets and bathroom cabinet handles. Glass shower doors come in a variety of
patterns, from clear to etched to molded. Because of the glass thickness required, frameless shower doors
are a more expensive option than the traditional framed doors.
When choosing a custom shower door, think about what design would look the best, and which style would
work well in the space you have available. With a bit of planning your custom shower door can be the icing on
the cake in your bathroom makeover!
