Selecting the Right Hardware for your Shower Door

Are you installing a new shower door? 

Do you want to update the look and feel of your current bathroom? 

Choosing the right glass shower door for your bathroom can be intimidating. Knowing what hardware to pick for your shower door can influence the overall style.

Clips vs. Channel

A typical shower door arrangement will include other pieces of glass beyond the door itself. Both methods perform the same function in holding the glass in place, but you may prefer the look of one over the other.  

Clip: Three or more clips are attached to the glass and wall to hold the side panel in place, compared to channel which runs along the entire edge of a piece of glass.

Channel: Channel is a 5/8” deep piece of aluminum U channel that is available in a variety of finishes to match the other hardware in the shower.  For a typical side panel in a shower, the glass is held in place by a piece of channel on the bottom and the side of the glass.

What to Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom

 Do you plan on remodeling your bathroom? 

Are you comfortable picking out new hardware for your project? 

There’s a lot to consider when remodeling your bathroom. Here are a couple things to keep in mind when picking out hardware for your bathroom update:

Finish: If you have already selected a finish for your other bathroom hardware, you will want the shower door to match.  There are several common finishes available for shower doors such as chrome, brushed nickel, or matte black.  These finishes are readily available for many different types of hardware and tend to be available at a lower cost.

Shape: Most hardware falls into two broad categories:  square and round. For simple hardware like hinges and clips, there are three common shapes: square, square beveled, and round beveled.  Ideally, you should select shower door hardware that is like the other hardware in your bathroom.  Consider the handles that might be used on your vanity or the faucet that was selected and choose a shape for your shower door that matches.
