Your bathroom may need a little something to spruce it up or add a little something to update the look a bit. Adding galls doors to the shower or bathtub can create a nice modern look to an older shower and add functionality to the tub and shower at the same time.
Style and Design
There are several different styles of shower enclosures and doors for you to choose from. They can be freestanding units that fit in a corner of the room or large glass enclosures that stand in the middle of a large bathroom and have doors on both sides to enter and exit the shower.
You may want to install clear panels or use a frosted option for more privacy in the shower. The choices are so varied that you can create an enclosure that suits your needs and your decor. The entire enclosure and doors can also be custom made if that is a better option for you.
If you have an existing bathtub that is in the home and you want to replace the curtains with a set of sliding doors, there are many different kits available from most any home center that will allow you to do that easily and inexpensively. The enclosure and doors are not hard to install, and most homeowners can handle the job themselves with a few tools and a little bit of time.
The doors on the tub will limit access to the tub a little, so make sure you will still be able to use the tub the way you need to if you add the doors. For families with small children, it means bathing them around the enclosure and over the track that the doors slide on. For shorter people, that can make it difficult to stretch over the track and into the tub.
Custom Glass Doors
If you have your heart set on glass doors but have a style in mind that you just can't find anywhere, you might want to talk to a glass company about making the doors for you. Most glass companies can either order or cut the glass you need so that the size is right, but if you want something special on the door, you may need to send the glass to an engraver and have them add your design for you.
If you have a drawing or a picture you want engraves on the glass, the engraver may be able to scan the image and digitize it then use a computer-controlled engraving machine to put the design on the doors for you, creating the perfect shower doors for you.
