    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Thursday, September 18, 2014)

Glass shower doors have surely been on your mind if you are remodeling your Herndon, VA home. No doubt you’ve been looking forward to eliminating old shower curtains and squeaky doors. However, you might have questions about which door systems would be best for your different bathrooms.

You may even feel inundated by the vast array of choices and optional features offered by shower door suppliers.


ABC Glass and Mirror, Inc. is here to help you navigate the maze of modern glass shower options. We have traditional shower doors as well as products that allow you to follow current trends in bathroom design, so call us at (703)257-7150 to have an informative conversation about the possibilities for improving your showers!

1.Swinging shower doors
– Many Herndon homeowners find that at least one shower area in the house is best upgraded by the installation of a swinging glass door and a stable glass panel next to it.

This configuration can be adapted to various circumstances and can be used on a tub or shower that is already enclosed on three sides. It represents a terrific way to take a run-of-the-mill bath area and turn it into a refreshing haven with an atmosphere of relaxation and renewal. There is, however, a caveat – a swinging panel should only be put in place when there is enough room for it to open outward without hazard or inconvenience.


2.Sliding shower doors – For Herndon families who need a more space-efficient option or those who simply prefer sliding door movement, we have bypass systems as well as frameless sliders. Some characteristics of bypass shower door systems are –

  Double doors

  Semi-frameless enclosure

  Rollers that sit inside metal tracking

  Some traits common to all frameless sliders are –
  Single door

  Fixed glass beside the door

  Frameless enclosure (sometimes with a header)

  Fully or partially exposed rollers

3.Skip the shower doors – a walk-in shower – ABC can also help you add a walk-in shower to your Herndon home. A walk-in shower is a large glass enclosure with an open entrance – no door panel. You might be wondering how this is even possible. Won’t the water flow or spray right out of the enclosure and onto the bathroom floor? The answer is “no,” as long as the entryway is positioned correctly, the floor has the appropriate slope, and the drain is properly situated.


Of course, the enclosure has to be big enough that the entrance can be far enough from the shower head. If you have the right amount of available space, consider a walk-in enclosure; this style offers a dramatic look and exceptional ease of entry and exit.


These are just three of the many possibilities for adding glass shower doors or enclosures to your house in Herndon, VA. When you call ABC Glass and Mirror, Inc. at (703) 257-7150 you can get more details on these three options as well as data on other choices like steam showers, corner showers, custom enclosures, and more.
