    • Frameless: These doors are made with heavy-duty glass that is supported by pivots. There are a number of designs that come with customization options. Also, they open both inwardly and outwardly and are easy to clean.
  • Type of Glass
    • Clear: The most traditional shower doors use clear glass because it is easy to maintain and lets in a lot of light.
    • Frosted: Frosted glass offers the most privacy. It lets in minimal light while one side is etched and the other is smooth.
    • Cast: These 3-dimensional glass doors are uniquely designed to ensure that your shower is the focal point of the bathroom.
