Frameless shower doors are a type of shower door made with solid portions of glass with no trims supported by heavy-duty hinges for pivot type, and tracks for bypass/sliding type.

Selecting frameless or framed shower doors will depend on personal choice and budget. To help you decide, below are the pros and cons of purchasing and owning the modern frameless shower bath doors.

PROS
Frameless shower doors are made entirely of glass and can easily make your bathroom look fresh and elegant. Its invisible appearance creates flowing space and a sweeping look that matches stylish bathroom designs. Decorative tiles designs and ornate lightings in the interior of the shower area are put on display.

Durability is reliable because thicker glass is used for it to support the panels that do not have the structural edge of aluminum framing. This kind of shower doors is easier to clean and can be restored to looking like new. Plus, the seal-in technology of frameless glass doors keeps the water from spilling out to the greater bathroom area.

CONS
Homeowners are usually concerned about the safety of frameless shower bath doors due to absence of a protective trim that runs alongside the glass. In addition, a frameless door may weigh as much as seventy pounds and obviously costs up to forty percent more than the regular framed door so caution must be taken particularly during the installation process.

For the most part, framed shower doors are wonderful to have if you have the budget to splurge on some luxury for your bathroom.
