Shower doors generally come in one of three varieties: framed doors, semi-frameless, and frameless. Each type of door has some practical advantages, but mostly the differences are aesthetic. A framed door has a frame around the glass; they’re sometimes easier to install. The frame also helps you create a certain look for your bathroom. For example, if you have a granite or countertop, you can choose a silver frame around your shower door to match the countertop. If you are looking for something clean and simple, you should consider a frameless shower door.
Frameless doors have become popular in all kinds of bathrooms for many different reasons. Chiefly, they are very simple and modern looking. A frameless shower door in Avalon, NJ creates the illusion of more space in your bathroom. Another way of creating more space is to convert your bathroom entirely into a wet room.
A wet room is a Northern European design in which the bathroom is made with a single floor and there is no shower tray or bath tub. Your shower is just in a corner of the room. The floor is sloped gently towards a drain. In that case, a frameless door is a great choice because it adds to the sense of openness of the space. You should contact South Jersey Glass & Door Co to see if they can create a great door for your wet room.
There will still be a few metal components to your frameless shower door such as the hinges. You should consider aluminum. Aluminum is a lightweight and strong material, but in the context of a bathroom, the most important feature is that it is non-ferrous. Aluminum building products don’t contain iron and thus will not rust in the wet environment of the bathroom. After thousands of showers, your aluminum components will still work great.
