Installing new shower doors is a simple, affordable way to upgrade your bathroom space. Before figuring out which type of glass to use or what finish you want for the frame, you should take precise measurements of the shower door opening.
To ensure accurate measurements, call the professionals at Glass Doctor® at 855-603-1919 to measure the space and install your new shower quickly and efficiently.
How Do I Measure a Shower Door Opening?
Regardless of which type of shower door you want, accurate measurements of the shower door opening are necessary to prevent water leakage and ensure a comfortable standing position.
How are you going to step into the shower? If you walk straight into the shower, you’ll need more space than if you step in sideways.
Are you going to have a doorless walk-in shower or a framed/frameless shower door? A frameless door needs a larger opening than a door with a frame around it.
Who will be using the shower? Depending on the size of the person using the shower, you need to take into consideration the height and width of the opening, in addition to other design tweaks, such as wheelchair access.
To avoid inaccurate measurements and sizing issues, it’s a good idea to contact the experts at Glass Doctor. We have over 40 years of experience measuring and installing custom shower doors.
