Are you looking to give your bathroom a fresh, modern look? Installing a new shower door is one of the most popular architectural trends in recent years. It can even increase the resale value of your home. But how much does it cost to put a door on a shower?The cost of installing a shower door depends on the type of door you choose. Clear glass doors, frameless doors, revolving doors, and sliding glass doors with pebbles are all popular options.
An inline door consists of a 12-inch panel on one side and a 36-inch door, closing the opening completely. Custom doors are for odd-sized showers that don't fit a standard-sized door or door and panel. Frameless semi-frame doors have a frame in which the glass meets the tile or bathtub, but not around the door panel. Swing doors are framed or semi-framed because they need a head to attach them to the swivel mechanism.
Framed shower doors also come in a three-panel, neo-angular style designed to fit in the corner of a small bathroom. If you have an old water-stained glass shower door, replacing it can make your bathroom look more beautiful and modern. However, if your shower extends into the room, you might want to get a full shower cubicle instead of just a door or door and panel. A new shower would be ideal, but if the budget prevents it, replacing an old shower door is still worth considering. You can go the DIY route and install the shower door yourself or hire a professional contractor to handle the work for you. The cost of installation will depend on the type of door you choose and whether you hire someone or do it yourself.
Generally speaking, installing a new shower door won't provide enough return on investment to justify the expense. However, if you install a new shower door and then find yourself selling your home, it's definitely a feature that new homeowners would appreciate.
