Shower Door Guide for Building a Custom Glass Door

When it comes to choosing the right shower door, there are several factors to consider.

  1. Size and layout of the bathroom: The size and layout of the bathroom will determine the type of shower door that will fit properly. For instance, if you have a small bathroom, a sliding door or a pivot door may be the best option as they take up less space compared to a hinged door.

  2. Style and design: The style and design of the shower door should complement the overall aesthetic of your bathroom. You can choose from a wide range of styles, including frameless, semi-frameless, framed, and custom-made options.

  3. Functionality: Consider how the shower door functions and how easy it is to clean. A door that swings outward may not be practical in a small bathroom, while a frameless door may be easier to clean compared to a framed door.

  4. Glass thickness: The thickness of the glass used in the shower door is an important consideration. Thicker glass is more durable and provides better insulation, but it is also more expensive.

  5. Budget: Your budget will also play a role in determining the type of shower door you can get. Frameless doors are generally more expensive than framed doors.

  6. Installation: The complexity of installing a custom shower door requires a trained professional. That is why AQ Glass Arizona will be will be with you every step of the way!

Overall, the key is to choose a shower door that meets your needs in terms of style, functionality, durability, and budget. By considering these factors, you can find the perfect shower door guide for your updated bathroom!
