Glass Tub Doors

Glass Tub Doors-What To Consider When Buying


When you go to choose Glass Tub Doors, you may not realize how many decisions there are to make. Gone are the days when you had limited choices. Now when you shop for this item, you will quickly see that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of style to choose from. What should you look for in Glass Tub Doors and why?

  • What type of glass should you choose?-Many do not realize that there are two types of glass to choose from. Clear glass is the one you will hear about the most. The reason for this is because ultra glass is more expensive, up to 25% more. Clear glass is also thinner. For bathtubs, 1/2" or 3/8" glass is adequate. If you choose a frameless enclosure though, you may find that you must use 3/8" glass. The thicker the glass, the higher the price and the "greener" the glass will look if you go with clear glass. For this reason, you would need to choose the ultra clear option.
  • What color is your bathroom? Take into consideration the walls, tiles and floors that you will install. Again the thickness of the glass will play a large role in what you need to choose. If you have a blue bathroom and go with 3/8" clear glass, the green tint of this glass will throw the whole look of the room off. If you are doing the bathroom in shades of green though, green glass will work perfectly. The overall decor of the room needs to be looked at for this reason.
  • Which type of Glass Tub Doors should you choose? This will depend on what the tub is used for regularly. Frameless enclosures give the room and open air feeling. Framed models must have framing and handles that coordinate with other bathroom fixtures. Never mix metals in a room this small. Tub enclosures should not be used on children's bathtubs or where pets will be bathed. When you are having to bathe a child or pet, chances are you will be climbing in and out of the tub or leaning over the side to wash them. A tub enclosure will just be in the way.

Consider all of the above when choosing Glass Tub Doors. Remodeling is not cheap. By choosing carefully, you can get Glass Tub Doors that will meet your needs for years to come.

Shower Curtains Vs Shower Doors

By Allison Ryan
Studies also show that vinyl shower curtains that contain polyvinyl chloride (PVC) contain chemicals that are extremely detrimental towards human health and the environment. New vinyl curtains release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), DEHP (a suspected carcinogen), and organotins into the air.
