The cost of adding glass doors to a shower depends on the size and type of door, the type of glass, and the style of the shower. Framed shower doors come in a three-panel, neo-angular design that fits in the corner of a small bathroom. These glass shower doors can showcase other visually appealing elements of your bathroom, such as tiles, stone, and details. Installing a custom frameless shower will generally cost more than installing a framed or frameless shower. Before beginning the project, it is important to check the size of the door you want to install.
If you are willing to compromise on style, you can opt for frameless shower models at a slightly lower cost. Frameless shower doors do not drip if the glass is installed correctly and the tiles lean inward towards the drain. For added protection against dirt and mold build-up, many parents choose to install an antimicrobial shower door. Frameless glass shower doors are made of thicker tempered glass that is less susceptible to breakage and is just as safe as framed doors.
These types of frameless doors will cost more than frameless doors, but they will provide more structural durability and a longer lifespan. Installing a custom glass shower can be a fairly simple project, depending on the type you install. In addition to adjusting the exact width and cutting the door frame itself, you may need an installation partner and an extra pair of hands to move and balance the glass panels. Be aware that custom glass showers that measure more than 76 inches (1.9 m) and are more than 60 inches (1.5 m) wide will cost more than standard sizes. Many homeowners prefer frameless glass shower doors because they look cleaner, sleeker, and more modern without metal accessories. Installing glass shower doors can be a fairly simple project if you have all the necessary materials and tools.
The total cost of this project depends on the size and type of door, the type of glass, and the style of the shower.
