5 Reasons to Use a Frameless Glass Shower Door in Your Bathroom

Using a frameless glass shower door in your bathroom could elevate the style and function of a room that you use multiple times a day. There are a lot of great reasons to use a frameless glass shower door in your bathroom. Learn more about those reasons below.


What is a Frameless Glass Shower Door?


Modern bathroom interior combined with toilet. Shower room and toilet are covered with tiles in the color of wood, white walls and a white floor and a washbasin with a large mirror in the center

Sliding shower doors are common features in the average bathroom. Most of these sliding shower doors have a thin layer of glass surrounded by a thick metal frame that is sealed to the side of your shower. The problem with this framed shower door option is the fact that it is often made of cheaper materials like the metal that will rust and the seals that will collect mold and mildew.


A frameless glass shower door is made with thicker glass, and it is without that ugly metal frame. It is attached to the wall with one of many sturdy and beautiful hardware options. Frameless glass shower doors can be more expensive than their framed glass counterparts, but they are also of higher quality and a more high-end style.


5 Reasons to Use a Frameless Glass Shower Door


There are many reasons to choose a frameless shower door over a framed shower door or a shower curtain. Check out five of these reasons below.


  1. Easily Customizable – One significant advantage of a frameless shower door is the fact that it is easily customizable. If you have a unique shower shape or size, you might have a hard time finding a framed shower door to fit your needs, but with a frameless shower door, it is easy. The glass is simply cut to the exact specifications of your shower. This will work for a single glass shower wall or a shower that has multiple glass walls. A frameless shower door is much easier to customize than some other alternative.
  2. Embraces Natural Light and Open Concept – If a bathroom feels dark and closed off, it can seem small and depressing. A frameless shower door offers the advantage of making a bathroom feel warmer and more welcoming by embracing natural light. Also, the transparent nature of the frameless glass door gives you more of an open feel than a shower curtain does.
  3. Minimizes the Risk of Mildew and Mold – One big disadvantage of shower curtains and framed shower doors is the fact that they easily collect mold and mildew. An advantage of a frameless shower door is that it doesn’t. A framed shower door has a metal frame and seal that can collect mold and mildew that is almost impossible to clean. A shower curtain can also collect that mold and mildew on the liner. If you want to avoid that, you can upgrade to a frameless shower door. You can keep a frameless shower door clean easily by simply wiping it down regularly.
  4. Makes Your Bathroom Look Larger – Above, we discussed how a frameless glass shower door can embrace natural light and an open concept theme. These factors are great in their own right, but they also contribute to another great advantage—a bigger looking bathroom. Many bathrooms feel small and cramped, and a shower curtain or framed shower door doesn’t necessarily help with this phenomenon. However, a frameless shower door makes your bathroom feel larger because the glass allows you to look all the way through your shower. Instead of a shower curtain that closes off the space, you could have a frameless shower door that makes your bathroom look larger.
  5. Adds Contemporary Style – One final advantage of choosing to use a frameless shower door in your bathroom is the fact that it adds a contemporary style. Modern and upscale bathrooms are increasing in popularity because people want a beautiful and functional place to get ready for their day, and a place to enjoy a hot bath after they’ve had a long day. A frameless glass shower door could help you get this contemporary feel.
