Showers form the most important part of our bathrooms and most of us have one. Bathroom shower curtains separate the dry areas from the wet ones. Shower doors are the perfect alternative for a shower curtain. However, there is a lot of confusion when it comes to selecting a shower door. There are many different types like an enclosed door, plain glass door, and sliding glass doors. There is further choice to make between frameless or framed door which best suits your bathroom designs.
Frameless sliding glass shower doors can be customized according to your specifications and they give your shower a clean and open look. Sliding glass doors are one of the many ideas for small bathrooms. They give the bathroom a neat look. Installing sliding glass shower doors is an easy project that can be undertaken at home. They are good to cover your shower enclosures. It is relatively cheaper to install the glass door on your own. The tools needed to complete this job are a shower door kit with the complete hardware, caulk, drill bit, hammer, masking tape, measuring tape hacksaw, and a center punch. Following instructions will help you to understand how to install them.
Step I: The first step is to measure the width of your shower opening for the door to be installed. Mark this area on the door track. Cut the door track with a hacksaw in the required size.
Step II: The next thing you need to do is install the track and use masking tape to keep it in its place. Install the door jamb in the track. One side of the door jamb will have shorter legs. This side needs to face the shower wall.
You will need a pencil to mark the position of the track on your bathtub surround.
Step III: Once you have marked the position of the track, remove the door jamb and the track. Punch holes in the marked positions with the help of a 3/16 inch drill bit. Once the holes are drilled, clean the area and hammer the plastic anchors firmly.
