Steam Shower Doors
A steam shower door is designed to keep steam inside the shower enclosure.
Choosing the right shower door can also do wonders for the look of your entire bathroom.You Have A Number Of Options
There are so many shower door options and configurations to choose from that it can make your head spin.
Your choice will depend obviously depend on your personal preferences but the opening that needs to be covered is also an important factor.
You have to choose between a sliding or swinging door, the look and thickness of the glass and any available accessories.
Sold in two or three sections, sliding doors, also known as bypass doors, are the most popular choice.
They’re pretty easy to care for.
They don’t take up a bunch of space.
They open and close by gliding on a track at the top and the bottom, and this is where the potential problem comes in.
It can be difficult to keep the track clean. And if you buy an inferior door, you may find yourself replacing the rollers sooner rather than later.
Buy a quality sliding steam shower door and it should give you a lot of mileage without much hassle.
Swinging Steam Shower Doors
Wide swinging doors look and work great for spacious areas.
Placement is important though, especially for relatively small spaces.
You have to make sure the door doesn't bump into your sink, a towel bar or some other object when it’s opened.
Framed Or Frameless Door?
Framed doors are made with aluminum framing on all the sides of the panels. As the name implies, frameless doors don’t have any framing.
The handles and hinges on frameless doors are mounted through the glass instead of being attached to the frames.
Frameless doors have a way of making a room appear larger and more open. They’re also a bit easier to clean.
Good luck if you're indecisive because there are quite a few types of glass you can choose from.
You have to choose the glass thickness.
If you prefer thinner glass, you have to choose a framed door to provide more stability for the glass.
Heavy glass can be completely frame-less.
You have to choose the type of glass, and there are lots of options.
Some of them include:
- clear glass,
- frosted glass,
- tinted glass,
- patterned glass,
- extra clear,
If you choose clear, remember that streaks will show up much easier.
You also have to choose the hardware that will be used on the glass.
This includes the shower door handle, hinges, towel bars, towel hook, etc.
Some of the hardware finishes include brass, chrome, brushed nickel, satin chrome, gold, and many more.
Custom Designed Steam Shower Doors
You can have your door customized for the shape of your shower.
Whether your steam shower is neo angled, right angled, or curved, your door can be specially designed to fit any height, width and shape.
There are also lots of matching accessories to choose from.
Shower doors normally come with complete instructions for installing the door.
My opinion is that if you’re not great at working with your hands, you should consider hiring a pro to make sure the job is done right.
