FRAMELESS SHOWER DOORS
Frameless shower doors provide a clear and sophisticated bathroom look free of unsightly frames or other hardware. A shower door without a frame can give bathrooms a larger feel without adding any actual extra space. These doors seem to hover above the ground, and they have a weightless quality to them that framed shower doors lack. With the door, panel, and return all made of frameless glass, the entire enclosure practically disappears.
For the ultimate in modern design and appeal, go with a frameless wall shower. These showers can be installed with or without a door, depending on the desired look. Without a frame to clutter the visual appearance, frameless wall showers essentially build a room within a room. Once positioned around the shower, frameless glass walls create a set of partitions that block water spray-off and create a feeling of chic luxury in the bathroom.
Another benefit of frameless shower doors is the ability to present what is behind them. In other words, glass shower doors can show off the work inside the shower itself, such as beautiful marble tile, for instance. Without a frame to get in the way, the shower itself feels like an extension of the room, rather than an occluded alcove. If you’ve put the energy and resources into having gorgeous marble tile installed in your shower, let people see it by using a frameless shower door as well.
SEMI-FRAMELESS SHOWER DOORS
For a more traditional look and feel in the bathroom, semi-framed shower doors are a great option. They come in many colors and configurations, though bronze is a classic look that is virtually always in style. Semi-Framed shower doors work well for fully enclosed showers, whether with a sliding opening or a more standard style pull door. In some cases, framed and semi-framed shower doors may do a better job at containing water in the shower area, as some frameless options might not touch the floor.
FRAMED SHOWER DOORS
Another great choice is the framed shower door, a popular option is chrome. Like the silver variety, chrome finishes provide a look that will last for years and stay in style at the same time. To make the bathroom more personalized, you can add a knee-wall in place of a full-height shower wall. Knee-walls are shorter walls about the height of a small set of shelves that allow for glass to be installed above them. Since there is unobstructed area above the short wall, knee-walls create a separation of space while also opening up the bathroom.
SEMI-FRAMED NEO ANGLE SHOWER DOORS
For bathrooms that need to maximize every inch of available space, a neo-angle shower door can be a great solution. Semi-Framed neo-angle shower doors are more or less what they sound like: they get installed at angles, typically with three separate pieces of glass that serve as returns for the shower door itself. The frames connect the multiple glass pieces to create a nice angled look without taking up a lot of surface area.
