There are over 20 different style to choose from. Youll have many decisions to make when shopping for a shower door one of which is whether you want it framed or frameless. Both of these types are unique and offer different benefits in functionality and appeal which is why its important to take the time to choose the right one. Here well take a look at frameless shower and doors and see how they compare to framed. In terms of price framed shower doors are going to be cheaper than frameless. One of the reasons for this is because framed doors usually use a thinner and cheaper type of glass which is supported by the framed enclosure.
The first and most important thing you have to take into account is how bright your shower stall will be if you use frosted glass. It takes away a fair amount of light and that is something that can end up creating a fairly claustrophobic environment in your shower enclosure. If there is a light right above your shower you will most likely be fine with frosted glass as well. If there is not you might have to consider using clear glass. There is also a possibility to use a combination of frosted and clear glass. This combination usually consists of frosted glass up to around head height and continues with clear glass above it. This way a lot of light can enter your shower stall and you still experience some privacy.

Glass doors are more durable than acrylic ones and can give extra support in case of slipping. Both types can have a variety of styles and materials used in order to look good and be more functional. Homeowners also have the choice to have a framed or frameless sliding door. Those with frames usually look sturdier but they can be a lot bulkier too. All the frames on all the edges will give extra support to the glass but if you have a small bathroom area this would eat up space. Frameless sliding shower doors on the other hand will give you that sleek look but equally durable attachments to the ground and the ceiling giving the right support for the heavy glass. These frameless sliding glass doors can give better aesthetics to your bathroom.
