Custom Shower Door Designs
From a sleek sanctuary to a rustic escape or beach-style California bathroom, frameless shower doors can be used to create the ideal bathroom decor. The wide range of frameless glass options makes nailing your bathroom remodeling project a breeze.
Types Of Shower Door
The ideal door type for your shower will depend on your bathroom configuration and available space. You can choose from:
Bi-fold Shower Doors
These fold doors split in half as they open and move back until one sits one on top of the other. They are ideal for bathrooms that are short on space, though not always suitable for smaller shower stalls due to the space needed to fold. Keep in mind however that custom frameless bi-fold doors tend to be a more expensive option. This may make them less worthwhile for lesser-used spaces such as guest bathrooms.
Classic and simple pivot shower doors swing on simple pivot hinges which are fitted top and bottom of the frameless glass shower doors. They can pivot both inwards and outwards. They offer a very clean as the hardware is placed top and bottom of the glass rather than at eye level.
Double-bypass sliding shower door
Perfect for shower stalls and bathrooms with limited space, a double bypass shower door simply slides back over the top of the door beside it. Custom designed slider layouts are available if you have an extra wide or large opening that calls for a more versatile slider option.
Barn door slider
Similar to bypass sliding doors, a barn door slider moves one panel over the other to create an opening. However, a barn door slider has a round bar that only allows one door to slide. Comparatively, a double bypass has a square bar with two rails so that both panels can slide, bypassing one another.
Ideal for corner showers, a neo-angle door creates a flattened corner to your shower surround. This helps create extra functional space by removing the shower enclosure’s protrusion into the rest of the bathroom.
A tub door or tub panel is a frameless glass panel fixed to the wall and lip of the tub. These bath screens create a protective barrier against water for the rest of the bathroom while also making for a gorgeous bath free of messy, moldy shower curtains.
Shower Door Styles & Design Options
There are so many viable options for the glass used in your shower, stick with a classic clear finish or go for a unique and bold design.
Black Grid Style Doors
Incredibly popular, this option is ideal for those dreaming of a more contemporary shower space. Black grid-style doors look best in a white bathroom where the contrast can be admired while also ensuring the space does not look overwhelmed.
Frosted Glass Doors
Perfect for privacy, frosted and textured glass doors create a more cozy feel than clear glass. As they are still transparent, they allow for natural light to still access the shower space. The frosting can be applied to the entire panel or as a pattern.
Ideal for tub doors or single panel shower doors, arched frameless glass panels add interest through a simple shift away from the standard square shapes we are used to. The rounded edges add softness and uniqueness to your shower enclosure.
Etched designs such as rain glass offer a unique and interesting way to inject personality into your shower space. Rather than normal glass, the etched glass includes a design of your choosing that is carefully cut into the glass surface.
Opaque glass doors offer the ultimate privacy. Opaque doors are perfect for shared family bathrooms, divided style shower doors, locker rooms, or even as room dividers and household doors. They do limit the amount of natural light that can access your shower, so are a shower door design that is best placed in bright, open bathrooms.
