Are Clear or Frosted Glass Doors Better for a Shower?

If you have made the decision to have glass shower doors placed into your bathroom, you have taken the easiest step in the process. Next you must decide what type of glass you want in the room: frosted or clear. Both types of glass have their advantages and disadvantages, so your choice will depend on your personal preferences.

Clear Glass Doors

Clear glass doors are an excellent idea in a small bathroom or if you enjoy a bright space.  These doors make a room look open and spacious and they let sunlight through.  If you value privacy, the clear doors might not be right for you.  They are also hard to keep looking clean and streak-free, so if you don’t enjoy cleaning you may want to consider the frosted glass.

Frosted Glass Doors

Frosted glass doors are a beautiful option for a larger bathroom or if you like to have a lot of privacy.  You can’t see through the frosted glass, but light still filters through.  Additionally, frosted glass hides streaks and soap scum, though this also makes it hard to get it truly clean.  Frosted glass can make a bathroom look smaller as well, since it acts as another wall in the room.
