When you are remodeling your bathroom, you can easily change the character of the entire area by installing new shower doors. Your bathroom door is a panel, usually made of glass that separates the shower area from the rest of the bathroom and keeps it dry.
Here are some tips to keep in mind to ensure that you get the most out of your bathroom and your lifestyle.
Bathroom space: The most important aspect when installing new doors is the space required in the bathroom and bathtub. The room will help you decide which type is best for your bathroom. Contact a professional to find out what size to buy.
Types of bathroom doors: Built-in special models. There are three main styles for shower enclosures to choose from: sliding, swinging, or folding.
Sliding doors are two or three separate panels that slide over each other on the rails to create an opening for your shower. They are great if you install them in your bathtub because they need the width to function properly. Sliding doors are not suitable for narrow enclosures because they are not large enough openings.
Turnstiles can be double or single, but they take up a lot of space. They work on tubs and bumpers, but you need to have plenty of room in front of you to swing properly.
Double folding doors are best for narrow bathrooms. This door works with an accordion and folds up the shower as you slide the door aside.
