Well the new year has begun and it’s time to start tackling all those home improvements you have been putting off over the summer season. If one of your tasks is to include a shower in your bathroom you need to carefully select your shower enclosure, which is why you need to know what the pivot door shower enclosures are and whether they are the right choice for your bathroom.
The truth of the matter is that it all comes down to the space you have available and personal preference. There are the sliding doors and bi-fold doors which are the perfect solution for smaller bathrooms where a pivot door would be an impractical choice.
The pivot door shower enclosures are perfect if you don’t have anything obstructing the door, remember these doors swing open, so you need to leave enough space between your shower and other bathroom items.
The pivot shower enclosures work really well when you install a shower in a recess of your bathroom, for example. You can’t have a hinged door because it won’t be able to open fully with a wall in the way, but the pivot of the pivot door shower enclosures allow the door to open completely without restricting how much space you have to get in and out of the shower.
I remember years ago the property I lived in had the most compact bathroom I have ever seen and there was a shower in the far corner. Originally it had sliding doors which were great, but when the shower was replaced they popped hinged doors on there, which to put it plainly were completely impractical.
We changed the hinged doors for a pivot door shower enclosure and never looked back. The door opened with ease giving us a large opening for getting in and out of the shower. We could choose between framed or frameless design, I went for the frameless because the bathroom was so small I wanted it as minimalistic as possible.
Another advantage is that the pivot door shower enclosures are made with a glass door, the glass allows the light to shine through the door into the shower, this strangely enough gives the bathroom that spacious feel.
In any bathroom there are two main things you need to make your bathroom feel larger, light colours, preferably white and plenty of bright light.
