Types of Shower Doors

Sliding door

This type of shower door moves within the shower enclosure and doesn’t open either inwards or outwards. Sliding shower doors are a perfect selection for smaller bathrooms where you might need to conserve space.

This could be because the size of your shower enclosure or your bathroom doesn’t allow for a great deal of room to open or that the angle of a swing opening door would encroach on other elements of your bathroom furniture.

Bifold shower door

This door is made up of two sections and folds in half and slides out of the way to the side of the shower enclosure. It is again, a good selection for smaller bathrooms and also for those shower enclosures that are on the tighter side.

Pivot shower door

This shower door is secured in two places on one side and swings outwards, allowing you to step into the shower and then close the door behind you, thus saving you space when gaining access to the shower, this type of shower is a better selection for bigger bathrooms with larger floor space.


Other glass shower doors available, include the curved glass door. Depending on the shape of your separate shower enclosure, or even if you are just looking to add a door onto your existing bath/shower, a curved glass door can be tailored to fit your specific space and add to the aesthetic.

Is a glass shower door the best?

When it comes to what door type is right for you it’s all down to what you want. However, glass shower doors are easier to clean and with the right upkeep, customers can have them last from 20-30 years.

Glass shower doors will able to help you utilise your bathroom space whilst still making your shower enclosure look bigger and more elegant.

Can I replace just the shower door?

Yes! Shower doors are simple to install, and it saves you the hassle (and money) when you replace just the door instead of the whole enclosure.

However, we do recommend having a professional install your shower door, just to make sure that everything is tip-top and works perfectly. Unless you’re one of our more handy customers!

How do I know what type of shower door is right for me?

Knowing which door type is right for you is all about knowing your bathroom and what you want. There are several things to consider when it comes to choosing your perfect shower door:

  • Dimensions of your enclosure/space – How big is your shower? Do you need to fit the product on a corner? Does your space have different sizes in terms of height and width?
  • Size of your bathroom – doors come in all shapes and sizes, but you need to know how big your bathroom is so you know what options you should be considering. This also means height as well as width.
  • Do you have a ‘typical’ bathroom or a wetroom? There are different options to choose from when it comes to your choice of door. There are products for both ‘typical’ and wet room style bathrooms.
  • The style you’re going for – Different brands have a different style and there can be one that suits your needs. Your style of bathroom will ultimately affect your choice and is something to keep in mind when looking at a variety.

There is a range of shower doors for every bathroom and showering area, so don’t worry, just take a look at the products above and see which of our options is the best fit for your bathroom.

What does shower enclosures mean?

Shower enclosures come in all shapes and sizes and can be a great fit for all bathrooms. A shower enclosure is considered to be two or more panels enclosing a shower area. These panels can be an already built-in enclosure made of brick or stone or can be glass panels. But this doesn’t necessarily include doors.

There are so many different options out there for shower doors.

Shower doors can make a real difference in taking your bathroom from simple to sophisticated. Just choose your style and be on your way to a better-looking bathroom.
