Are Custom Shower Doors Worth It?

 

Attain a Look and Feel You Are Sure to Love for Your Coral Estates Bathroom

Custom shower doors are a more significant investment in your Coral Estates bathroom. But it’s necessary for customers currently investigating their options to understand what makes the prices higher for a custom-built door. Essentially, it boils down to quality and customization. 

You are getting something built to your specific tastes and the aesthetics of your bathroom. With a custom-made door, you’ll likely receive higher-quality materials and custom craftsmanship that aren’t found in the standard store-bought shower doors. 

There are a lot of factors that play into the cost of a custom shower door: 

  • Glass door size
  • The quality of the glass
  • Thickness of the glass panel 
  • The decorative hardware selected
  • The addition of a towel bar
  • Professional installation
  • Glass treatments, such as StayCLEAN

It’s Important to Remember that Frameless Is the Best Choice

Some custom shower door builders may provide you with framed or semi-framed options. The bulkiness of the frame may obstruct the open-sight lines and prevent the minimalist feel you’ll get with a frameless door. In addition, water can collect inside the frame and become a place where mold and mildew collect.

The Door Size

Custom frameless shower doors can be sized to fit any shower opening. A larger opening will require more materials and more labor. Whether you want a door built or a complete custom enclosure will also matter. 

When you go through the design phase, someone will talk to you and ask questions to help you determine your needs. You’ll want to measure your shower opening to get an accurate assessment of what you’ll need. 

Glass Quality

Like anything else, the quality of the materials will increase the price. For instance, low-iron glass will be more expensive than regular glass, providing a more transparent and less distorted look. The simple reason for this is that the impurity levels of low-iron glass are lower. 

Glass Thickness

The thickness of the glass used impacts the cost. Typically, quality custom shower doors range from ¼ inches to ? inches thick. If you’re looking for a heavy-duty door, it requires thicker glass and high-quality hardware to support it. The size of the shower opening and the desired weight of the door may impact the appropriate thickness. 

Decorative Handles and Other Hardware

The handles you select will impact your shower door cost. The hardware options that enhance the look of your bathroom are available to you. There may be more cost for having that ability to choose vs. settling for whatever the store-bought door was built with. 

Towel Bars and Other Ad Ons

Adding custom features to your shower door does more to make it unique to your bathroom and your needs. For instance, putting towel bars or robe hooks directly on the door could bring added convenience.

However, it’s important to remember that the extra hardware requires custom installation and labor. This will increase the cost but also add to your enjoyment of the shower experience. Keep this in mind for glass etchings, door handles, corner treatments, and more. 

Professional Installation

Custom shower door installations are more complex than those of a standard model. This is especially true if specific bathroom conditions drove you to select a custom door in the first place. 

Custom installations may involve cutting the glass, ensuring that hardware is attached and fits appropriately, and ensuring your shower door works as intended. The glass panel is incredibly heavy, so having your door professionally installed helps to ensure your satisfaction with your investment. 

Glass Treatments Such as StayCLEAN?

With a custom door builder, you can have enhancements made to the glass that increase the door’s value. For instance, with The Original Frameless Shower Doors? , we’ll use our StayCLEAN? technology to make them water- and oil-resistant. 

Custom Shower Doors Are The Best Way to Upgrade Your Bathroom

As you look at some of the factors determining the extent of your investment, it’s important to remember that frameless glass shower doors add elegance and sophistication to your bathroom. They open it up to show off the tile work and make the room feel bigger and brighter. 

Frameless shower doors also offer added durability. They are made with tempered glass, which is more resistant to cracks or breaks. If it does undergo enough force to break, it will break into chunks rather than tiny, sharp shards. 

You’ll get unlimited style options to create something more aligned with your bathroom. The design process will allow you to find the suitable finishes, textures, and styles for your perfect custom door. 

It’s important to remember that a custom frameless shower door will increase the value of your home. They are high-quality additions that enhance the look of any bathroom, so home buyers see them as a plus.
