Here at EZ Bath. we have many years of experience when it comes to bathroom remodels, and we have helped many homeowners and landlords to create the perfect bathroom for their needs! In this guide, we will reveal everything you need to know about the shower doors we have available, and how to choose the best one for you.
There are a number of different factors to consider when it comes to choosing the perfect shower door. This includes the following:
There is only one place to begin, and this is by getting the measurements right for your shower door. This is imperative when selecting the right shower door for your enclosure. If you get this wrong, you are going to end up experiencing problems as soon as you have purchased it. The last thing you want is to receive your shower door and then realize that it does not fit.
Rather than simply guessing what door is going to be right, grab yourself a measuring tape, as this will ensure your measurements are 100 percent accurate. Make sure you get the height, depth, and width, which should preferably be in millimeters.
Should you have an old shower door that you are simply going to replace, take the measurements of your current shower tray to find out what is needed.
If you are shopping for something new, it can be very easy to find yourself getting carried away and looking for products that you simply are not able to afford. To prevent yourself from getting depressed in this manner, determine how much you can afford comfortably and stick with this budget. Having a clear budget will save you a considerable amount of time and prevent any procrastination in the future.
Where your shower enclosure is based can also have an impact on the sort of shower door you can have. Corner showers, for example, may not have as much space for a shower door as shower in the middle of the wall does. Consider where your shower currently is or is going to be placed and select a door that is most suitable for this location. This is something we can help you with.
A lot of people can be tempted to go big when purchasing a new door for their shower enclosure, yet this is only going to result in problems during the installation process. Once the measurements have been taken, make sure you stick with them and select a shower door that has been designed to fit into the designated space. Again, this is something we can make sure of.
Some of the most common sizes for shower enclosures include 900 x 900 mm and 800 x 800 mm. However, there are some bespoke sizes as well, so it is imperative to take out the measuring tape.
No matter what you do, make sure you do not select a shower door that is too deep, tall, or wide. If you have a small bathroom, the last thing you want is a shower that dominates the entire space, as there will not be much room for you to move around comfortably and it won’t look very feng shui.
On the flip side, if you have a big bathroom, you can go for something larger. It is all about scall. After all, if you have a large bathroom yet a tiny shower enclosure, you can feel somewhat claustrophobic while you are taking a shower.
Next, you need to consider the design that is right for your bathroom. There are plenty of different styles to select from, and it can be difficult to choose only one.
Your current decor and the size of your bathroom will also play a massive role. Think about the look that you want to create and the sort of feel you want to have in your bathroom.
If you want to create a greater sense of privacy, you cannot go wrong with frosted glass. Plus, this will add a beautiful and decorative feel to your bathroom.
If you want to create a sophisticated and clean look, transparent glass is the perfect solution. This can add real elegance and glamor to your bathroom. You may want to spend some time looking on the likes of Pinterest and Instagram so that you can get some inspiration for the sort of bathroom that you want to creat.
The shower door you select is typically going to depend on your own personal taste and the decor in your bathroom. However, there are a few other things to think about as well. So, let’s take a look at some of the main options to consider:
There are many different types of shower doors available today, so let’s take a look at some of the different types so you can get a better understanding:
There is only one place to begin, and this is with hinged shower doors. Out of all of the different shower door styles that are available, hinged shower doors are probably the most simplistic. They open and shut on a hinged side, yet they can be used with either straight or curved shower enclosures.
A hinged shower door will provide a secure enclosure, which will make certain that your bathroom does not end up sustaining water or steam damage. These shower doors have a timeless and classic design, which is available in a wide range of styles, so you should have no trouble finding a shower door that matches the decor in your bathroom.
Hinged shower doors are better suited to bigger bathrooms, as the door will open out into the room, which means you are going to need greater space surrounding the shower enclosure. Hinged doors are also perfect for square or rectangle shower enclosures.
Out of all of the shower doors that are available, this is the most rare and unique design of them all. The infold door incorporates a special arm mechanism, which will open the door up into the showering space. Once you are in the shower, it pretty much wraps back around you. Some of the these doors will straddle halfway in and halfway out, whereas others go completely into the shower space.
The stunning sweeping motion looks incredible, yet as you can imagine, the mechanics associated with this do make it one of the more expensive options on the market today. For example, in comparison to pivot doors, you can expect to pay between two and three times the price. Of course, we will be more than happy to discuss your budget with you and give you an understanding of what is achievable within this. We always work to our clients’ budgets so that they end up with a beautiful and functional bathroom they adore.
Another option to consider is a bi-folding shower door. While these are not going to be highly functional, they are incredibly elegant and stylish. You can choose from having either three or two folds in your bi-folding shower doors, which will save you huge amounts of space while being much more stylish when compared with a conventional door.
Bi-folding shower doors look incredible in contemporary bathrooms. You can turn a standard shower cubicle into a statement piece. If you instantly want to add some style and chicness to your bathroom, bi-folding doors are the perfect choice.
Another option to consider is a sliding shower door. Sliding shower doors work incredibly well when you want to save space in a small bathroom, as they create a compact and slim shower enclosure. You can also get sliding doors that work with curved shower cubicles. Therefore, it does not matter what shape of shower enclosure you have, sliding shower doors can work well.
Sliding doors are also an excellent choice for small bathrooms because they do not require any extra toom. They do not open outwards, meaning you do not have to fret about losing any space.
If there is a guest bathroom in your home, a sliding door is ideal because these bathrooms are typically smaller when compared with master bathrooms.
Last but not least, pivot doors simply open and shut, making them another type of simplistic yet stylish shower door. Shower doors can be designed to either open outward or inward, depending on the space you have available and your own personal preference.
Pivot doors will open super wide and they can lie flat against the wall of the shower enclosure. Because of this, make sure that you do not store anything on the side that could prevent the door from opening in full.
Because of how wide pivot doors open, pivoting doors are perfect if you have a sizable bathroom. If your bathroom is quite small, we would not recommend pivot doors, as they can make a small room feel cramped.
Although we do not recommend having carpets in your bathroom, a pivot door certainly will not work well with carpets or rugs, as it will cause them to become soaked whenever you open the door. Instead, pivot doors are much better in bathrooms with non-slip floors or wet room bathrooms.

It is important to realize that there is no right or wrong when determining what side your shower door should open on. In fact, the vast majority of shower doors on the market these days are reversible. This means that they can be installed using a door hinge on either the right or the left. To achieve this with the majority of designs today, you are simply going to need to rotate the full door by 180 degrees, i.e. you should flip it upside down.
A fixed panel is incorporated into a sliding shower door. Your fitter is going to install this either on the right-hand or left-hand side, which will depend on your preference for entering the shower. You may have to select a model with handing incorporated, i.e. left-hand or right-hand entry, if the glass incorporates any sort of oversized rollers or cut-outs.
The which way you install is up to your preference and what is practical based on the space that is available to you.
