Installing new glass shower doors is exciting. However, you don’t want to get swept away and make rookie mistakes. It’s okay, you don’t have to learn the hard way. We’ll let you in on a few trade secrets to make sure you avoid these mistakes in your glass shower door remodel.
Know your space! Measure it and then measure it again. If the door of your dreams won’t fit in your bathroom, it won’t be functional. If you don’t have enough room for a pivot door, sliding doors might be a better option. Either way, the glass shower door you choose needs to make sense for the space.
Remembering who’s going to be using the shower is important. Are there kids in the house? Maybe a tub enclosure with sliding glass doors would be best. Did you remember to consider adding a seat, grab bars, and towel bars? Besides choosing the shower door that looks and fits the best, you have to consider if it makes sense for the household.
You don’t want a leaky shower. They are inconvenient and annoying. So, consider where the shower head is placed in comparison to where your new door opens. For reference, the shower head should be placed opposite the hinges.
Research and planning are essential to a shower remodel there are a lot of things to consider. Make sure you understand your options, then decide which glass shower door is best for your space and consider the price.
