The first and most important thing you have to take into account is how bright your shower stall will be if you use frosted glass. It takes away a fair amount of light and that is something that can end up creating a fairly claustrophobic environment in your shower enclosure. If there is a light right above your shower you will most likely be fine with frosted glass as well. If there is not you might have to consider using clear glass. There is also a possibility to use a combination of frosted and clear glass. This combination usually consists of frosted glass up to around head height and continues with clear glass above it. This way a lot of light can enter your shower stall and you still experience some privacy.
Without this door water would get all over the floor of the bathroom. This could lead to an accident if you slip and fall on the wet floor. It could also lead to the floor becoming rotten beneath the tile or linoleum if it is exposed to water for too long of a period or if the water is not cleaned up promptly. Tub and shower doors are an attractive alternative to shower curtains. Whereas shower curtains will often billow and move around while you are taking a shower or a bath these types of doors do not. They are solidly built to provide a strong barrier that stays in one place.

Using a thin framed glass door is completely functional but it doesnt look as finished and high-quality as thicker glass doors do. Another problem with using framed shower doors is that mold and mildew colonies will thrive in the hinges where you cant clean. This will lead to a dirty-looking shower in which you may have to replace the hinges later down the road. If you do decide on a frameless door do your best to keep the frames clean by frequently spraying them with a one part bleach 9 parts water formula. This will help eliminate the microscopic invaders. If you really want your shower to look its best you should consider installing a frameless door for the shower. These doors are free-standing and dont require the support of an aluminum frame.
