First of all, you need to take a look at your shower or tub. The shape may not be right for the addition of a glass door, and you certainly don’t want to be out for the expense of the door if it’s not practical. Then again, your existing setup may be too small for a glass door.

Ready for Water?

It’s also important to know that glass shower doors are not completely water tight. Water can – and usually does – get through, and this problem can be amplified if your shower is already known for leaks. Don’t get your heart set on a look or style, just to be let down by puddles on your bathroom floor.


Shower doors can be tricky, especially if you are working in a small space or an oddly shaped space. DIY can spell disaster. The best thing to do in this situation is to consult with a professional.

By getting in touch with an expert, you take a huge load off your shoulders and ensure you’ll get exactly what you want. Even better, putting the job in the hands of a professional with years of experience means your job will be done right.
