Types of Shower Doors
All bathrooms are unique and reflect the individual tastes and requirements of their owners. For this reason, we provide a wide range of shower doors to match the look of every bathroom. The types of shower doors we offer are:
Frameless shower doors
These shower doors don't have a metal frame on the edges, which gives your bathroom a modern look while enhancing your bathroom's tiles.
Semi-frameless shower doors
Semi-frameless shower doors are an excellent choice for those that want the benefits of a frameless door but have a limited budget.
Framed shower doors
Framed shower doors generally come with aluminum framing and are a reasonable choice.
Sliding shower doors
These shower doors are an excellent option for smaller bathrooms because they meet your needs without taking up too much space.
Swinging shower doors
These doors open outwardly and inwardly, like standard doors, and add a classy look to your bathroom.
Bi-fold shower doors
These doors are a good choice for when you want a swinging door's benefits, but you have space constraints.
We also provide bathtub enclosures and curtain walls to help enhance your space.
Choosing a Shower Door
Adding a shower door to your bathroom is one of the easiest ways to upgrade its appearance without the need for extensive renovation. There are endless options for shower doors available in the market, and choosing the right one can be challenging. Ultimately, it all comes down to your budget, requirements, and taste. We recommend the following steps to help you make a decision:
Door type: Does your shower have a tub? If yes, you will require a tub shower door. If you don't, a regular shower door will do.
Swinging or sliding: If your bathroom is small and crowded, a sliding shower door will give you more space. Swinging or pivot shower doors are suited to corner showers and bathrooms that have ample space.
Glass texture: You can add a touch of design to your bathroom by choosing a glass texture that meets your needs. You might opt for patterned glass for an added appeal or clear glass for a clean and classic appearance.
Frameless or framed: The last step in choosing a glass shower door is deciding whether you want it framed or frameless. This choice for this depends entirely on your taste. Framed shower doors are seen as more traditional, while frameless ones can add sophistication.

Three Excellent Ways to Use Glass to Upgrade Your Bathroom
It’s amazing how a few upgrades using glass can change the whole look of your bathroom and add major resale value to your home.
If you like style, glass shower doors are a must. They will make your bathroom look bigger and trendier. There are many stylish options to consider. You can add a glass door to your tub/shower combo too. Glass shower doors can also be installed on any angled space. There is no risk of water leaking or mildew accruing, as in the case of shower curtains. Glass shower doors are also easier to clean. In short, a glass shower door will make your bathroom look bigger and brighter. Used in conjunction with a large mirror, your bathroom will look much more spacious.
Install big mirrors
Adding a big mirror to your bathroom is one of the best ways to brighten up the space and make it look bigger. It can also be used as a decorative piece that ties the whole room together, especially if you use a stylish mirror, such as a rounded mirror or a mirror with a fancy frame. For more pizzazz, add LED lighting or lamp fixtures right next to the mirror. If you get a framed mirror, make sure it’s labelled as water-resistant or moisture-resistant. Mirrors will perfectly complement your glass shower doors.
Frost your windows
Frosted windows are a great option for you if you want to let in the natural light but at the same time want privacy. If your bathroom doesn’t already have windows, adding in a window can be a good way to get more natural light and open the space up. Windows help ventilate the bathroom. One thing you could do is go with a half-and-half option: frost the bottom half of the window but keep the top part clear.

What Can You Not Put on a Glass Shower Door?While cleaning glass shower doors, never use an abrasive cleaner or scouring pad. Those products can scratch the surface.

How Do I Clean My Shower Glass?The best way to keep shower glass clean is to wipe it with a squeegee after each shower. This will prevent any water spots or soap scum from building up. Another option is to use a daily shower spray like ShowerClean or a vinegar and water solution. If you maintain your bathroom right, it will look new for years.
