Adding Glass Doors to an Existing Fixture

Sometimes creating your dream shower is as simple as installing a new glass door or doors on your current stall or tub. Replacing a shower curtain or privacy glass with pristine clear doors changes the atmosphere of the shower as well as the bathroom. Both spaces suddenly feel more open and roomy, and the style of the bathroom is modernized. For single shower stalls, we can add a swinging door and there are a few possibilities for tubs or larger stalls, including:

  • In-line door and panel
  • Double swinging doors
  • Rolling “barn style” door beside a fixed panel
  • Double rolling “barn style” doors
  • Bypass doors

Installing a Corner Shower

If you have some extra space or are adding on to the bathroom, a glass corner shower is a wonderful complement to your current tub/shower combo. Made of clear glass, the corner shower will preserve the room’s spacious ambiance while providing an additional – and very inviting – shower option. Right angle corner showers typically have one swinging door, and glass sheets adjoining each other and the walls at 90 degree angles. In addition, we install neo-angle corner showers which also have a single swinging door. These generally have two fixed panels coming out from the wall at 90 degree angles. The door panel meets the fixed glass sections at 135 degree angles. Both right angle and neo-angle corner showers can be adapted to work with your bathroom’s layout and to achieve your desired look.

Upgrading to a Steam Shower

Maybe your dream is to enjoy a steam shower right in your own bathroom. As well as the steam shower kit, you’ll need an enclosure that will hold up to humid conditions and seal up completely. ABC offers frameless steam enclosures to meet this need. Glass withstands moisture and humidity, and we will construct the enclosure so that it extends from floor to ceiling and traps the steam. We also equip steam units with operable transoms so that you can release steam as desired.

Creating a Custom Shower

ABC is the answer if you have a unique and beautiful glass shower idea in mind! Our team will work with you each step of the way and complete the project with professional installation. On a custom enclosure, variables like the number of panels, the number and placement of doors, and so on are up to you! Of course the unit can also be further personalized in the same ways as our other showers – frameless or semi-frameless, type of glass, hardware finish, and so on!
