Buying a new shower door!
Frameless shower doors are easy to install, but they will still need to be attached to your wall so that they can be properly insulated when not in use. If you don’t want to worry about this step, don’t bother with a frameless shower door. A frameless door just requires a simple sliding door track to go with it that is securely fixed to the wall and securely held by mounting hardware. There is really no installation required.
You may also find that your frameless shower door is made from a material other than glass. If so, make sure you look for products that are made from a high quality material that has been heat resistant and treated to prevent water leaks. This can make a huge difference in how well your door works as well as in its durability and lifespan. Make sure you measure your space and make sure that the door fits. Also make sure that there are no holes in the door to allow water to leak through, and you’ll be fine.
