Why Choose a Frameless Shower Enclosure?

When deciding to install a shower enclosure in your bathroom, there are a lot of options to choose from: Framed, semi-framed, sliding, one-angle etc.. One such option which is becoming increasingly popular is the frameless shower door.  Sleek and stylish frameless enclosures offer a modern, on-trend style but there’s more to them than that.  Here are 7 reasons you should go frameless on that new shower enclosure.

Make Bathroom Appear Bigger

The expanse of glass opens up the room creating the feel of more space. In bathrooms where space is at a premium, this is a great feature to have.

Brightens the Space

Again the lack of a frame means more light can be let through, creating a bright and airy atmosphere.

Durable, long lasting

Due to the fact that there is no framing other than thin supports surrounding the panel, the glass must be strong.  As a result, the panel used for frameless shower doors is normally of thicker, better quality than other enclosures.   Plus without the framing, you don’t need to worry about any corroding parts or surfaces which can attract mold.

Easier to Clean

With only glass and a thin support, frameless enclosures are very easy to clean. Opting for glass with additional properties can help to repel water meaning even less maintenance.

Fit to Any Size

Frameless shower doors can be cut to almost any size or shape, allowing for a unique design that is individual to you. Of course, not all bathrooms are the same size or shape. With a frameless option, you can fit the enclosure to the exact dimensions you need.  Most frameless shower doors are custom built for the customer.


The custom nature of frameless shower doors means they can be fitted in a wide range of styles: inline, right angle, neo-angle, steam.  On the whole, they look great in almost any bathroom and complement existing styles well.

Enhances Existing Design

The sweeping panels of frameless shower doors mean that any decorative tiles are not obstructed, enhancing the overall style of the bathroom.

As with most things, there is a trade-off.  Frameless shower enclosures are the more expensive option, however
