Updating the hardware of your home’s shower door can improve the look drastically. Many homes
manufactured in the 90’s and early 2000’s still feature gold hardware which is no longer a
trendy finish. Replacing this shower hardware with something that has a more modern finish such
as brushed nickel or oil-rubbed bronze can make your bathroom feel new again.
Even if your shower doesn’t currently have gold hardware, it may still benefit from an upgrade
to better match your style. You can upgrade just about anything—from door pulls to hinges,
frames, and sliders. Some of these features may even be added if your shower doesn’t currently
have them all. This can give your shower more aesthetic appeal, or even better versatility.
Shower Door Hardware Uses
Examples of shower door hardware include:
Door Pulls: The handle used to open and close the shower door.
Hinges: On a hinged shower door, these brackets allow the shower door to
swing open and closed. Some brackets allow for a larger opening angle than others. There are
even specialty center-mounted shower door hinges which allow the door to rotate a full
Sliders: On a sliding shower door, the slider allows the shower door to slide
open and shut. Framed shower doors usually have sliders enclosed within the framing. Frameless
shower doors can also feature sliders that are usually mounted in a barn-door style.
Shower Door Frames: Shower doors generally come in three main styles: framed,
semi-frameless and frameless. Framed shower doors feature hardware that frames glass panels in
place and mounts them to the wall.
Shower Door Hardware Finishes: The finish of shower door hardware is arguably
one of the most important aspects. You’ll want to choose a finish that not only compliments
other hardware in the bathroom such as faucets and drains, but one that mixes well with wall
paint and other colors existent in the bathroom. Examples of finishes include:
Oil Rubbed Bronze
Powdercoated (color of choice)
Shower Door Hardware Styles Shower door hardware style options are just as
abundant as shower door hardware color options. Styles range from simple, sleek contemporary
looks, to ornate, classic designs. Many shower door dealers will have hardware options
available in their showrooms so you can not only see the difference in these hardware styles,
but feel them too!
