3 Things to Remember When Choosing Your Glass Shower Door


Most people assume that choosing a glass shower door is a breeze, but there are many things to consider before making your final decision. Before you make the investment of a new glass shower door, the experts at Janssen Glass want to share a few need-to-knows with you.

Keep It Custom


If the interior of your shower is custom, the door should be too! Most homeowners spend tons of money customizing their showers, and then drop the ball when it comes to the shower door.

Not only would a generic shower door look odd paired with a unique and customized shower interior, but by choosing the right glass shower door and keeping it custom, you can achieve a brand new level of beauty!

Edges on frameless shower doors tend to be darker the thicker the glass, but other types of glass may look completely different. To ensure you love your final product, make sure to ask your shower door professional about your options!

Shower Doors Are NOT 100% Water Tight

While glass shower doors are much more effective at keeping water in the shower compared to curtains, they aren’t 100% watertight.

An important aspect of your shower to think about while installing is the placement of your shower head. Make sure your shower head is installed and directed away from the opening of the shower to eliminate any possible water getting through and onto your floors.

Go Frameless & Show Off Your Shower Door

Glass shower doors have come a long way in recent years, offering different textures, color, design, and configuration. Shower doors are no longer used to simply keep water in the shower, but as a design element and focal point in bathrooms everywhere.

One shower door trend that is sweeping the nation is frameless shower doors. Today, we are giving you all the details on this popular trend, and how Janssen Glass can help transform your bathroom from drab to fab with one simple update: your shower door.

Why Go Frameless?

A few decades ago, frameless shower doors weren’t an option because the thin glass being used within this industry wasn’t able to stand alone without a frame for support. However, with today’s option of using heavier glass, the possibilities and benefits are endless. Below are just a few reasons to consider going frameless.

A Minor Update with Major Results

Frameless shower doors have the ability to update any bathroom. Since the introduction of frameless shower doors, framed doors are starting to look very dated. Because heavy glass is used to make frameless doors, you can stop focusing on tacky door frames. Adding a frameless shower door is a great way to update an outdated bathroom, while also adding resale value to your home.

Expand Your Bathroom Without the Hassle of Renovation

Because frameless doors are so commanding, going frameless will make the biggest impact on updating your bathroom, especially in a smaller bathroom. By adding a frameless shower door, your bathroom will feel exponentially bigger, and will allow guests to focus on more beautiful, important aspects of your bathroom instead of your outdated shower door.

Re-Focus Your Bathroom Focal Point

Replacing your shower door can provide a brand new focal point to your bathroom. Frameless glass shower doors open up your bathroom, allowing guests to appreciate the tile work and other design elements within your shower, instead of focusing on not-so-pretty things, like the toilet beside it.
