Hardware accessories are an important part of the shower door selection process.


With all the styles and finishes available the potential for your shower door is endless.


Even with endless possibilities there are items that are the most popular.  Trendy accessories usually are considered to be so due to color and style not because it is a towel bar or a hinge.


Most shower doors have handles and hinges, but some of your options to inquire about include towel bars and robe hooks.


These are selected options that have to be noted and measured for during the estimation process.  So if you desire to hang your towels or robes make sure you speak with your project estimator during his in-home visit. He must measure for them and consider strategic placement of the accessories while he is in your home so he can ensure your needs are met discuss all your options during the scheduled consultation.


Truly there are only a total of 5 major hardware accessories to consider and those hardware components are:


1.    Handles
2.    Hinges
3.    Headers
4.    Towel bars
5.    Robe Hooks


As noted in the list above, a general overview of the different types of hardware accessories for your shower door include towel bars, robe hooks, handles, hinges and headers.  Most of these hardware pieces are self- explanatory except maybe the header.  The header is a metal piece that sometimes has to be used on a frameless shower depending on the shape and structure of your shower stall.
