7 Questions to Ask Before You Install Glass Shower Doors

Questions to Ask Before Getting a Glass Shower Door

You’re ready to get started on your shower door remodel. But you don’t want to just dive into it without doing a little planning. You should ask yourself and your glass company some questions before you get the process started with those new, sparkling glass shower doors.

1. What kind of glass shower door do you want?

This is the hardest question because there are so many options. You can choose how the door opens, what type of glass, what type of enclosure you want, etc. Peruse a few of your options to get an idea of what glass shower door you want to create your own oasis.

  • Sliding doors
  • Pivot doors – Swings outward
  • Bifold doors – Folds in on itself
  • Framed
  • Frameless shower doors
  • Semi-framed
  • Partial enclosure
  • Stand-alone shower
  • Tub enclosure

2. How much space do you have?

Once you have an idea of what you want, think about the space that you have. Is your shower a corner shower? Is it an alcove shower? Is it a narrow space? The layout of the bathroom will impact what kind of glass shower door that you can have.

3. Do you have a shower, tub, or both?

The answer to this will also impact the kind of shower you get. If you have a tub/shower combo, then sliding doors are a great option. If you have a standalone shower, then pivot doors are great. You can consider partial enclosures for both if your space is big enough. Partial enclosures help to create a modern look, if that’s what you’re going for.

4. What features are most important to you?

It’s important going into it that you prioritize the features that are most important. Is it the type of glass? Is it the type of door? Think about these things because once you contact the experts and they see your space, they may have different recommendations.

6. How long will it take to measure?

So, you have an idea of the kind of shower you want and the price. Now, you’ll want to be aware of the process. How long is it going to take? Do you have to take any days off work? Once you agree on a quote from a company, you’ll want to ask about the next steps.

7. How long will it take to install?

This will naturally follow the last question. Basically, you want an understanding of the whole process from start to finish – from measurements, to manufacturing your door, to installation. And you’d be surprised how quick the turnaround is!

Overall, it’s important that you plan the step-by-step process to get your new glass shower doors. This will help keep the whole renovation exciting and stress-free!
