Installing Frameless Shower Doors In Your Bathroom

Loïc Lecomte

Adding a shower enclosure to your bathroom can reduce the risk of water damage occurring while also being a rich aesthetic addition. Frameless shower doors can be a particularly effective option for homeowners that are wanting to improve their bathrooms.

Frameless Shower Doors Can Provide A Modern Look

The aesthetics of frameless shower doors can be especially pleasing and modern. These frames will lack the metal border that framed shower enclosures will use. As a result, they will have a more elegant and simple design. In addition to these shower enclosures being attractive, their simple design can make them a suitable option for a wide range of interior designs. This option is also highly customizable so that these enclosures can be made to fit the dimensions of almost any shower.

Frameless Shower Doors Will Not Be More Prone To Leaks

A homeowner may not choose a frameless shower enclosure due to the assumption that it will be more prone to leaking than framed options. More specifically, individuals may assume that there will be leaks around the doors of these enclosures. Luckily, this is not the case as these models will use waterproof stripping along the perimeter of the door to make a tight seal when it is closed. As a result, there is little risk of water leaking out when you are using the shower. After several years, the stripping will need to be replaced, but this is a simple and affordable type of maintenance that a homeowner can easily do on their own in a matter of minutes.

A Frameless Shower Door System Can Be Easier To Keep Clean

Cleaning the shower enclosure will be a type of maintenance that you will need to do regularly. Unfortunately, framed shower enclosures can be surprisingly difficult to thoroughly clean. This is due to the crevices that can exist between the frame and the glass as well as the joints of the frame. In contrast, a frameless shower enclosure can be much easier to clean as it will lack these areas. In most cases, a person can clean the shower enclosure in a few minutes. Regardless of whether you choose a framed or frameless shower enclosure,  it is important to avoid applying excessive force to it. Otherwise, you could inadvertently crack one of the panels, which could lead to it needing to be replaced. Also, a microfiber cloth or fresh sponge should be the only tools you use when cleaning it so that you avoid leaving behind scuff and scratch marks on the glass.
