Shower Door Design Tips

Congratulations on your decision to update your bathroom with a frameless glass shower enclosure! Your new enclosure is sure to add beauty to your bath and value to your home.

We know that any remodeling project can seem a bit daunting, so we’ve put together some pointers for making the planning process easier and ensuring the installation process goes as quickly and smoothly as possible. Before we even arrive at your home, our handy tips will help you:

  • Choose the best spot to install your new shower
  • Pick the right layout for your new shower
  • Ensure a watertight, properly installed shower
  • Keep costs to a minimum

Many of our tips are just good advice – if you have certain spacing or remodeling constraints, we may be able to work with you to find a solution. Just ask!

Proper angles need to be used in order to avoid any complication with shower door installation.

Corner showers should use 90 degree angle or 135 Degree for neo angle

Glass door can weight up to a 100lb. You need to make sure you have proper in wall support in order to hinge the door, 2/4 or 3/4″ plywood will be sufficient enough.

Make sure your saddle is pitched in so water can run back in to the shower (common design problem)

Never use glass tiles! When considering a frameless design that would require drilling into the tile. Inevitable the glass will crack during the drilling process, or over time.

When designing your enclosure, try to never leave your tile, marble, granite, tub decks, etc. overhang anywhere. If it does, a notch can be made with a diamond saw. Make the notch 1/8” wider than the glass and no more than ¾” deep to minimize breakage.

Be careful where you place your towel bar! Remember, we are here to help. If you have a question or concern, please let us know and we will make sure issues like this one does not happen to you.

WHEN USING WALL MOUNT HINGES, AND THE SAME WALL HAS A TOWEL BAR MOUNTED ON IT, design consideration must be given as to whether that Towel Bar will be struck by the door when it opens to a full 90 degrees. This situation can restrict access to the shower, and more importantly, with the glass hitting the Towel Bar, there is a chance of the door exploding. A possible solution is to use Top and Bottom Pivot Hinges, and inset the Hinges enough so that the pivot point projects far enough from the wall to clear the Towel Bar.

If you are planning to use a decorative listello raised border or any border for that matter, always use one that is flush or flat with the other tile in the shower door area. If you choose to use one that sticks out past the wall tile, make sure it stops before the door area. Nothing should be protruding out that would interfere with the door swing.
