What to Look for in a New Shower Enclosure

A modern style bathroom

If you want to add a new shower enclosure to your bathroom, there are a variety of options and factors to consider. You need to know what type of shower door you want, what style design you are looking for, and whether or not you want custom options. The factors to consider vary from aesthetic to practical considerations, and it’s vital to understand the details. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass evaluates what you should look for in a new shower enclosure.

Frameless Options

One popular bathroom design trend is the frameless shower enclosure. Frameless options, specifically with the Dublin frameless series from Ryan’s all-glass, offer flexibility with shape, size, and pattern, making it an extremely customizable shower design. If your bathroom doesn’t have typical dimensions or you’re simply looking for a unique shower door, our Dublin series is the perfect solution. Besides the customization options, frameless shower doors have a sleek and minimalistic look that gives your bathroom a more modern feel.

Opening Styles

Another factor to consider when choosing a shower enclosure is how the door will open. There are several ways a shower door can open, from swinging doors to sliding doors. Sliding shower doors are the most common. But when it comes to customized showers, swinging doors are becoming more popular. Sliding doors are typically the standard unless you are upgrading your bathroom. Ryan’s all-glass works with both sliding and swinging doors, giving you more flexibility when installing a new shower. When choosing the way your shower door opens, the dimensions and layout of your bathroom play a pivotal role. A sliding door might make more sense if a swinging door would hit a wall, sink, or toilet.

Tub or No Tub?

A wild card consideration for a new shower enclosure is whether or not to include a tub. Most showers that include a bathtub don’t typically have an enclosure. They merely utilize a curtain. If your enclosure will have a tub, you can eliminate most frameless options from consideration. However, you can still use a semi-frameless enclosure and even a sliding door if you don’t want a curtain alone.
