Framed Or Frameless? Glass shower doors come in various different shapes and sizes. But the most obvious distinction is the frame. There are frameless and framed shower doors. The frameless option looks more elegant and offers other advantages as well. It is for example a lot easier to clean and therefore improves the hygiene in your bathroom. The disadvantages that come with this choice are the increased costs which are around 40% higher and the more expensive installation. If you are considering buying sliding shower doors then you might want to know about the pros and cons of each.
