Making the Righ Shower Enclosure Selection

Glass Shower Enclosure? Bath Enclosure? Let's Choose!

Bath tub or shower door? Sliding shower door or hinged shower door? Traditional aluminum frame or glass shower door?

Best shower and bathtub enclosure selection in San JoseIf you're thinking of remodeling your bathroom, chances are you've encountered these questions. Making the best shower door selection simply isn't that easy. After all, you're going to be looking at this every day for a quite a while. You'll also be investing money into the project, so making the right shower door selection is critical. You never want to be left second-guessing yourself.

With that in mind, let's look at the pros and cons of each type when making a shower enclosure selection:

  • Glass Shower Enclosure: A glass shower enclosure is the cream of the crop when it comes to style – and cost. Without frames, the glass shower enclosure gives the illusion of space and elegance. These shower enclosure selections are commonly seen at high-end hotels. In addition, there aren't any parts that rust; however, a faulty installation can lead to leaks so be sure to have an experienced professional install it. (San Francisco and San Jose residents can call A1 On Track for professional service, installation, and shower enclosure selection).
  • Bath Enclosure: This one's pretty simple. Do you like to take baths? If so and you don't have space for a separate bathtub, better go with a bath enclosure that looks great and provides privacy or prevents unwanted splashing onto the floor.
  • Framed Shower Enclosure: Framed shower enclosures are more affordable and lack the aesthetic elegance of a glass shower enclosure. However, framed shower enclosures can be customized to fit the look you want – just contact your local professional to see what's available. For San Francisco, San Jose, and the Bay Area, many residents rely on A1 On Track for an on-site consultation for their framed shower enclosure possibilities.
  • Sliding Door Enclosure vs. Hinged Door Enclosure: Besides pure aesthetics, there's a functional reason why someone would choose a sliding door enclosure over a hinged door enclosure and vice versa. Hinged door enclosures can be narrower for cramped spaces but require clearance for the swinging door; sliding door enclosures stay contained within their frame but require roughly a bat tub's worth of length to work properly.
