Q: I want to replace our shower curtain with an out-of-the-box glass door. But I need guidance before we start looking. Can you please give me glass door info and install options?
A: Here are three questions and a bonus tip to keep in mind when installing a standard glass shower door.
1. Will you need a tub and shower door, or a shower-only door to fit your present setup?
2. Would you like a metal frame door or frameless door? With a metal frame door, you can choose trim finish to match your bathroom, like brass or chrome. A frameless door has exposed glass edges for a more contemporary look.
3. What kind of glass do you want? Clear glass can help small bathrooms feel more open, while frosted glass offers privacy.
Finally, there are quick-install doors out there that require no drilling, so installation of your glass shower door doesn’t have to be a pane. (Editor’s note: We think that’s a pun.)
