Choosing Between Frameless and Semi-Frameless Glass Shower Doors
Both frameless and semi-frameless glass encourage natural light to flow in your bathroom thanks to their modern design so your bathroom will feel more spacious and feature glass that’s easy to keep clean. However, there are subtle differences that make one a better option for your space. Let our past projects below guide you to choose the right type of shower enclosure for your bathroom.
Frameless Shower Enclosures
Since frameless shower enclosures have no frame around the glass, the glass panels are fastened together by luxury hardware, such as carefully crafted clamps and hinges. It features a very minimalistic design that is as functional as it is durable. If you’re searching for a completely seamless, sleek look, frameless glass shower doors and enclosures are the best choice.
Semi-Frameless Shower Enclosures
Semi-frameless shower enclosures feature clean lines as the design is crafted in a way that leaves some edges exposed and others framed. The hardware accompanying semi-frameless shower enclosures is most commonly aluminum but can be brass or stainless steel. If you’re searching for a less expensive option that still provides a modern look, opt for semi-frameless glass.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a glass shower enclosure?
Glass shower enclosures, also referred to as glass shower doors, replace shower curtains and liners with sleek, modern glass, transforming a traditional shower into one with no or minimal frames.
How much do glass shower enclosures cost?
The cost of glass shower doors can range from $500-4,000. The variable range is explained by the size of glass shower door you need, the type of glass used to create the shower door or enclosure, as well as the cost of labor. However, the typical price range for a glass shower enclosure is $530-1,350.

Are glass shower doors durable?
Due to their high-quality construction and use of heavier glass, glass shower doors are extremely durable since the glass panels are fastened together with carefully designed hinges or clamps. Unlike a framed shower door that has a metal frame to cover up potential weak points, frameless shower doors incorporate 1/2″ to 3/8″ glass that can withstand more force and pressure. In addition, frameless shower doors also feature reinforced edges for added strength and stability.
Which type of shower door is easiest to clean?
Both semi-frameless and frameless shower glass are easier to clean than their counterparts (i.e. framed glass and shower curtains). However, since frameless shower enclosures feature a single panel of glass, with no metal framing to trap water and grime, they are inherently easier to clean than semi-frameless glass shower enclosures.
What is the most common shower door size?
The most common shower door size is 60″x 72″, but it ultimately depends on the dimensions of your shower. Our glass shower doors can be customized to fit any size shower, so some people opt for a smaller or larger door depending on their preference and space limitations. Keep in mind that the width of the shower door will also determine the width of the shower opening, so consider how much space you want for entering and exiting the shower when selecting a size.
What kind of warranty do your glass shower doors come with?
When it comes to glass shower enclosures, warranties vary depending on the type of glass you choose to have installed. Some manufacturers offer limited lifetime warranties on their products, covering any glass defects or hardware failures. Others may only offer a one-year warranty or a limited warranty that covers certain parts or issues. It is important to carefully review the warranty with us before purchasing glass shower doors to ensure you have the warranty you need.
Can I protect my shower door from water spots and clouding?
It can be frustrating to step out of a shower and see water spots and cloudy buildup on your shower door. Fortunately, there are several ways to prevent this from happening. When showering, try to avoid using products that contain moisturizing oils or harsh chemicals, as these can leave behind residue on the shower door. Additionally, regularly wiping down the shower door with a squeegee or microfiber cloth can also help remove excess water and reduce potential buildup. For added protection, you can also apply a shower door treatment product that creates a barrier against water spots and clouding. Please read our in-depth article for tips on how to properly clean your shower.
What is antimicrobial protection?
Simply put, it refers to the ability of a surface to resist the growth and spread of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. In shower products, this often means preventing the buildup of mold or mildew on shower curtains, tiles, or grout. Antimicrobial protection can improve shower hygiene, keep your shower cleaner for longer, and create a more pleasant showering experience.
