How To Measure A Frameless Shower Glass Doors

Measuring the opening for glass shower doors requires accuracy and precision to ensure that the doors fit properly. Here are the steps to measure the opening for glass shower doors:

  1. Gather the necessary tools: You will need a measuring tape, a level, and a pencil.

  2. Determine the type of shower doors you want: There are various types of shower doors, such as sliding doors, pivot doors, and frameless doors. Decide which type you want before taking measurements.

  3. Measure the width: Measure the width of the opening from wall to wall at the top, middle, and bottom. Use the smallest measurement as your final width measurement. Record the measurement in inches.

  4. Measure the height: Measure the height of the opening from the top of the shower base or threshold to the top of the tile or enclosure. Again, measure at the left, center, and right of the opening, and use the smallest measurement as your final height measurement. Record the measurement in inches.

  5. Check for levelness: Use a level to ensure that the walls of the shower opening are level. If the walls are not level, note the measurement of the highest point on the wall.

  6. Consider any obstructions: Check for any obstructions such as showerheads, grab bars, or towel bars that may interfere with the installation of the shower doors. Note their position and distance from the edge of the opening.

  7. Choose a door size: Use the measurements you have taken to choose a door size that fits the opening. If you are ordering custom shower doors, provide the measurements to the manufacturer to ensure that the doors fit perfectly.

Remember to double-check your measurements to avoid errors that may lead to ill-fitting shower doors. With the right measurements, you can ensure that your glass shower doors fit snugly and add a touch of elegance to your bathroom.
