Bathroom renovation services from The Solera Group are available to you in and around the city of the Los Altos Hills.
Looking for bathroom renovation ideas? Consider replacing your shower curtain with brand new, luxurious looking glass shower doors. Glass shower doors add a finished, custom look to any bathroom. They are easy to care for and come in a variety of styles and finishes.
Shower doors are usually either sliding or pivoting doors, and may be frameless or have a metal frame. Whichever type you choose, there are some important differences.
Frames come in nickel, chrome, gold and occasionally other finishes to match your faucets or lighting. You should never clean a shower doorframe with harsh cleaners or abrasives because you might damage the finish. Many frames are coated with a finish that repels mold and mildew and that causes water to bead up.
Sliding doors are installed around the shower or tub area. The doors slide over each other on silicone gliders that fit into tracks in the frame. They don’t require any clearance outside the tub beyond what people need to comfortably enter and exit the area.
Pivoting shower doors are hinged to open like regular room doors. They require enough clearance around the tub or shower to allow the door to open without banging into walls or fixtures. Often this type of door comes with a glass side panel that lets you adjust the width to fit different size openings within a range. Pivoting doors may be more difficult for the novice to install than sliding doors, so it’s best to rely on a professional for this task.
