Frameless Shower Door – Installing a Shower Door
If you are looking to install a new shower door, you should know that there are two kinds available- framed and frameless. Your ultimate choice will depend on the layout of your bathroom as well as your individual inclination. However, one cannot deny the fact that a frameless shower door is not only aesthetically appealing but also a better investment.
A frameless shower door basically consists of panes of glass that are thick in terms of width and are fused to the walls that surround the shower. Their main aim is to protect the flooring from water and therefore, keep the bathroom clean and dry. Since metal is not used to support the glass, heavy duty hinges carry out the required function. Depending on your preferences, the door can either be clouded, transparent or covered with patterns.
People today are looking for simplicity when it comes to designing their bathrooms which is why a frameless shower door becomes advantageous. The clean lines and leveled appearance attracts customers more than the overwhelming decoration one finds on framed showers. The best part is that clear glass will complement any kind of motif and blend in with the flooring of each and every bathroom. Because of this reason, you will not have to spend hours picking out a shower door that will not clash with the tiles in the room.
These shower enclosures come with a range of high quality fittings. These fittings include high specification 8mm or 10mm glass. You can also purchase them with high quality chrome brackets. The chrome handles are also a fantastic addition to your enclosure. You are unlimited in size for your product, ranging from 760mm, 800mm, 900mm up to much larger sizes. Shower trays are also very useful, we recommend a shower tray with a stone material but you can also get them in acrylic or other materials.
If one was to compare framed and frameless shower doors in terms of the cost, the latter would prove to be more expensive. However, it is important to remember that a frameless shower will add to the value of your house and make it easier for you to sell it in the future. In addition to that, they are more durable than framed doors which makes them cost effective and eliminates the need for regular maintenance.
Cleaning this category of shower doors is fairly easy. All you need to do is use a solution of lemon juice and water to wipe off the water after every shower and if that is not possible, you can carry out the exercise once every week. This way, the soap deposits will not collect on the door and the door will look shiny and new for years to come.
In conclusion it has to be said that if you want to make your bathroom look elegant and chic, frameless shower doors are the way to go!
