Where to Begin

If you’re in the market for a new set of shower doors, barn doors, or shower enclosures, then you’ve come to the right place. When it comes down to it, it can be difficult to know just what to look for in shower doors – or any other functional bathroom product for that matter. For that very reason, we put together a simple, easy to follow buying guide for you to use in your bathroom remodel process.

Find Your Favorite Type of Door

Remember, this is your bathroom! That means it’s your turn to choose the styles that you love. When it comes to buying shower doors, you have a few options available. There are typical shower doors that swing out, tub doors that slide along a track, barn doors, and pivot doors for single-stall showers.

Your first task is to take a look at the space – from there, give all of your options some consideration before choosing the right shower door. Once you choose, it’s time to figure out the size that you need.

Measure It!

How to measure the opening

This part is easy, but it’s also easy to make a mistake. We always recommend measuring at least three different widths of your shower or tub enclosure. Once you’re able to ensure that your measurement is accurate, take a look at the sizes that are available for your preferred style. If you’re having trouble finding something that fits just right, it may be time to look into a custom job – and that can be even more fun!

Pick a Style You Like

After you have your measurements done on your finished walls, it is time to decide on a product style for your bathroom! You can browse through all of Seawin’s elegantly designed product series. With our wide catalog of options, there is a perfect door for everyone!

Hardware Finishes

Don’t forget – all shower doors come with hardware. Some come with tracks – like barn doors or tub doors, and almost all come with finishes like hinges, knobs, or handles. You’ll likely find a variety of finishes available – from gold and silver, to black, white, or even copper. Take a look at your options and choose one that works best with your style.
