How Updating Your Shower Door Can Improve Your Bathroom

Several years ago, a beautiful bathtub was a must-have in every master bathroom. But the latest trends have people steering away from bathtubs and into luxury showers. Since showers are typically used on a daily basis while bathtubs are only used on occasion, updating your shower is a logical and worthwhile renovation.

This also provides a great opportunity to update a well-used space into a luxurious, updated room!

But not all shower designs and accessories are created equal. Furthermore, you may want to give your whole bathroom a new look and be wondering where to start.

Well, let’s talk about your shower door first. Your shower door may not be providing the privacy you want or may not be complimentary to other aspects of your bathroom. But by just updating your shower door, you can completely transform the look of your bathroom.

Using your shower door to improve your bathroom

Now that you’ve decided to take the plunge and update your bathroom, you’re probably wondering where to begin. Starting with your shower can significantly improve the overall function and appearance of your bathroom. The shower is one of the most important components of a bathroom, and it’s important to put a lot of thought into what you want it to look like.

Here’s why.

Improving your shower door can give the appearance that you updated your whole shower! Suppose you want to distribute funds to projects all around your bathroom and don’t have enough money to purchase a new shower. Don’t worry! You can just pick the best door available and it will look like a completely new unit.

Picking the best shower door

Okay, now that you’re sold on the idea of upgrading your shower, you’ll want to know what kind of door you should get. Having a huge, luxurious shower makes it the focus of your bathroom. And to complement it, you must have an excellent shower door.

For smaller bathrooms, we recommend clear glass, frameless shower doors. Having clear glass and omitting bulky shower frames will help make your bathroom look bigger. For bathrooms with a lot of traffic, we would recommend choosing a sliding, clouded glass shower door. This will help provide privacy and hide some of the typical “shower mess.”

For those who want their new luxury shower to be the focus of your bathroom, we recommend picking a shower door that makes a statement and draws people’s attention. You may get this with a clear, pivoting walk-in shower door. Specifically, pivoting shower doors are designed for larger showers and have the benefit of being trackless, so no more tripping over your door when stepping into the shower!

Matching your shower door with your bathroom

You have the option of going sleek and modern or cozy and warm with your shower doors. If you are all about charm, you can choose textile, patterned, or even clouded doors. You can even use a clear shower door and choose eccentric tiling to balance it out. We’ve even seen a basic and clear sliding shower door dressed up with drape-like curtains hung from either side.

However, if you’re all about sleekness, you can choose swift, sliding, and clear doors. The options are endless when it comes to using your shower door to dress up your bathroom.

You can also use your shower door to tie together elements in your bathroom, so be sure to pick complimentary tiles and accessories. If you choose a shower door with bronze accents, be sure to buy bronze bathroom accessories (like soap dispensers, toilet paper holders, and other organizational things). The same applies to doors with silver, gold, or black accents.

Our favorite look is a clear, frameless shower door, offset with black tiles and modern shower fixtures. Feel free to experiment with different materials and colors to find the perfect look for your shower!
