Once you have chosen the building material for your shower in Central Virginia, now it is time to choose the type of shower door that best fits your style. From framed to frameless, and even completely custom-shaped, here are a few of our favorites.


Frameless Shower Doors

These types of shower doors are very popular because of their sleek appearance and visibility. There is no frame blocking the full view of your beautiful shower.

Framed And Semi-Frameless Shower Doors

One of the biggest upsides to a framed shower door is it’s like adding a frame to a picture. It can enhance the overall look of your bathroom by accenting the finer details of your shower.

The towel bar on the clear tempered glass panel allows you to have your towel close, for easy access. A wet towel will also be dripping onto the glass panel and your waterproof floor, instead of the drywall with a wall mounted towel rack.

If you are looking for something that lets the light in but keeps your shower more private, frosted glass may be the way to go. Depending on the original construction of the bathroom, a knee wall can prevent some of the claustrophobic feeling of a full wall shower.

Completely Custom Shower Doors

Sometimes a uniquely designed bathroom can require non-standard shower doors. Especially when doing a complete bathroom remodel, the exact sizing of the shower may be very different than standard sizing. Here are several oddball shaped glass shower doors we have installed.

Neo-Angle Frameless Clear Glass Door & Knee Wall Panels

A neo-angle shower is a great way to fit a shower into a small bathroom. Because of the custom shape, the glass is kept together by a top frame.

This unique tile shower features the frameless look to the knee wall and door. It is still classified as a frameless door because there is no framing around the panels and the door. Want to see how the shower looked before the bathroom renovation?

The simplicity of this clear glass door allows the intricate tile design to stand out. When your shower has herringbone and off-set wall tiles, you want to be able to easily see it. Not to mention the lovely shower floor tiles and tile bench.

Did you know you can also get a sliding glass door for your bathtub? Say “goodbye” to the water sneaking around a shower curtain. The frosted glass adds a little privacy, without severely darkening the bathtub. Bypass doors mean you can access the bathtub from either side.
