I Love My Shower Door
by: Annalise

I love my frameless glass shower door. We put in a second bathroom and only had room for a shower. We saw these doors and put one in and it's sooo pretty. It is etched with a design that is generic enough that I can redecorate without clashing and it's a breeze to clean.

I love frameless glass shower doors!
by: Delores

I have a frameless glass shower door in my shower in my master bath. I have a separate soaking tub in the main bathroom. I prefer the frameless glass door in the shower as it is a breeze to clean and it looks so much better than those curtains that get moldy seemingly overnight!

Curtains
by: Taylor

I can see why people would like glass doors, but I prefer curtains. There's the privacy issue, plus I can change the colors and designs any time I want.

Easier, but still require cleaning
by: Misty

I'm not a fan of shower doors of any kind. I have enough glass in my house to wipe down without adding more to the list. I like shower curtains that I can throw in the washer once a month. Plus, with shower curtains I can change up the colors and styles whenever I want.

I like the sound of installing frameless glass shower doors and the article is real insightful about what to look for. I would never have thought of checking the finish as I tend to shop on a see, grab, buy basis.
