Frameless Shower Door Aesthetics
 
Installing a frameless shower door in your bathroom instantly gives the room a contemporary and chic appearance. They are perfect for the homeowner looking for a sleek and designer bathroom. The fitting of a frameless shower door is a powerful statement that has a positive effect on your homes décor.
 
Frameless Shower Doors Ease of Maintenance
 
Frameless shower doors are very often manufactured from polymer which makes them very duct resistant. The absence of the frame prevents the build up of mildew as soapy deposits cannot get trapped. Frameless doors are extremely easy to maintain and rarely need to be replaced.
 
Enhanced Space
 
Frameless shower doors are ideal in a bathroom where the area of the bath tub is restricted. The frameless doors do not require much space and offer an exceptional bathing solution in properties such as flats and loft conversions.

The frameless doors are available in a vast variety of styles, patterns, designs and colours. There is also a choice in door mechanisms, such as bi-folding, sliding or swinging.

Some people have family crests, football team logos or quotations etched onto the doors.
 
Frameless Doors Help with Efficient Water Control
 
The frameless shower door helps put you in control and their construction retains the water within the enclosure. The absence of a shower curtain also prevents the build up of mildew and mold.
 
Varieties of Frameless Shower Doors
 
There are two preferred varieties of frameless shower doors. The first type is produced from various types of glass and the other from composite materials. Both methods have their own plusses and minuses.
 
The glass shower doors have a much enhanced appearance and are incredibly robust. They are relatively easy to clean with most off the shelf bathroom cleaners. There are many different designs available on the market with clouded or distorted glass affects to name but two. The glass frameless showers doors have a very elegant and imaginative appeal.

Frameless shower doors that are made from composite substances also have a superior look but have the added benefit of being much more lightweight and versatile. Although glass frameless shower doors are incredibly strong, the composite doors will not shatter or break. The down side to this variety of door is that they are easily scratched or marked making maintenance a little more demanding.
 
Correct Shower Door Installation
 
The frameless shower doors are very easily to install. They can be fitted as part of a DIY project or can be installed by a professional. It is very important to take accurate measurements to ensure the frameless shower doors are fitted correctly.
