Single Glass Shower Doors Meet Their Match

No matter what type of bathroom you have, single glass shower doors are one of the most popular and easy to install. They fit well in a smaller space but are also a great fit in a larger space that contains a separate bathtub or vanity area. If you're remodeling a smaller space, you'll find it's most often easy to fit in a single shower door.

But sometimes, the door space is larger than the standard single shower door, which ranges in width from 22" to 36".  If the space is larger than 36", then you'll typically need to make up space with an additional panel -- or multiple panels.  And that's where the single frameless glass shower doors meet their match: with the door & panel configuration.

Dulles Glass offers both kinds of frameless showers. Let's look at a few examples.

Single Glass Shower Doors

The single shower door (shown above) is as simple as it comes. The great thing about this shower is that it allows lots of light into a smaller space, while still fully enclosing it, which keeps the heat in on those cool mornings! This single shower door features chrome handles and hinges, and is 36" wide.

You can get a single glass shower door in two thicknesses: 3/8" or 1/2" glass.  And, you can even choose the style of handle to match your decor, in the finish you want as well.

Door & Panel Shower Door

The door & panel shower door is basically a variation of the single shower door, but with the addition of one or more glass panels used to fully enclose the space. You might use this configuration if you are remodeling your bathroom and getting rid of a bathtub/shower combo area entirely. If your bathroom shape and size allows it, you could then put in a door & panel shower door with a tiled shower area where your old shower used to be.  This has an added advantage of making it so that you don't have to step in and out of your bathtub anymore to get in the shower. Instead, you have a light, airy space with a durable glass door in place instead.

With a door & panel shower door configuration, you can get the same high-quality glass, hardware finishes, and style options as you can with the single door.  But, there are a lot of other options for door & panel shower doors. For example, you may have a space that requires you to have knee- or half-walls instead of the full glass panel.  Or, you might want a steam shower transom that tilts open at the top. When you are getting a quote on a door & panel shower door, you'll want to consider these types of configurations.


As you can see, we have many configurations to suit your needs when it comes to the single shower door or the door and panel shower door. You're just a few easy steps away from the bathroom of your dreams!
