Choosing the Right Shower Door

For homeowners looking to upgrade their shower doors, or perhaps doing a complete shower remodel, choosing the right shower door for your project is an important first step. Inline shower doors are a logical choice for bathrooms that have an area which can be separated by glass to create a natural enclosure with three walls.

What Are Inline Shower Doors?

Inline shower doors extend between the two side walls from end to end and connect side by side to more glass panels at an angle of 180 degrees, creating a straight-line design. This makes a comfortable entry and exit from the shower enclosure very easy.

In most cases, the shower glass will be frameless to enhance the spaciousness of the entire bathroom. The door can be designed to swing open or pivot on hinges, or it can slide on a track parallel to the adjacent stationary glass panels on either side.

Why Inline Shower Doors Are A Great Choice

Inline shower doors are an excellent solution for maximizing space. They offer a clean, modern appearance that doesn’t interfere with other usable space in the bathroom. The value of inline shower doors doesn’t stop there, because when you install this type of luxury shower door, you’ll be adding value to your home.

Glass shower doors are also excellent for transferring light in the bathroom, which is why most homeowners will choose a clear or crystal-clear glass for their shower. Not only does this enhance the lightness of the room, but also the openness.

Alternately, you can opt for a variety of different tinted, frosted, textured, or patterned glasses for your inline shower door, depending on your personal preferences. Some homeowners prefer more privacy in their shower or have decorative schemes for their bathroom.

Benefits Of Installing Inline Frameless Shower Doors

In addition to adding value and enhancing the look of your bathroom, inline shower doors come with plenty of benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  • They transform “normal” bathroom into an elegant and stylish one
  • They are seamless and transparent, making the light diffuse beautifully and making the bathroom space look bigger
  • The separation panels and glass doors can be engraved and frosted for additional privacy
  • Frameless inline shower doors don’t have parts that rust
  • They are excellent at preventing water from escaping the enclosure
  • They eliminate the chance of mold forming since there’s no space between the glass and glass panels
  • The interior glass wall liners can provide a spa-like ambiance
  • They can be converted into fully enclosed steam shower doors
