    Keeping the water or steam inside is all you really expect of your shower door, but it can add a beautiful design element to your space as well. With a variety of styles and sizes, shower doors can accommodate most showering spaces. It’s a bit like the last puzzle piece in your shower design; it should be the easiest to place but the room doesn’t come together without it.

    Here are a few thoughts to keep in mind as you explore. And don’t worry if you don’t have all the answers right now. This guide will help you answer the questions and find solutions that work.

     

    1. Is this for a shower only or a bath/shower combination? There are some differences between the two, so be    sure you browse in the correct category.
    2. Do you have space limitations that would prevent a shower door from opening into your bathroom? Sliding doors and some pivot doors are better suited to narrow bathrooms.
    3. Are you thinking of including steam in your shower? If so, you will need a shower door that extends to the ceiling to hold the steam.
    4. Do you prefer the look of framed or frameless doors? There are plenty of options in each category.
    5. Will you be installing the door yourself? Some shower doors are specifically designed to be easy to install and to accommodate openings that aren’t entirely square.
