There is something to be said about taking advantage of natural light and space in your home. What is the easiest way to do that? While well-placed mirrors can give the illusion of space and light, there is a better choice for well-informed home and business owners. Glass can provide a clean, streamlined look for any room in your space, from French windows to shower doors. A quality contractor like R Company in El Paso, TX, knows how to help you choose the right selection for any room, and can install or replace them so you can enjoy the beautiful, open feeling that a quality glass door can provide.

What to Consider When Choosing Glass Doors

Redoing any room in your home can be a lot of fun. From planning a new color or selecting a new counter, any room can look like new with very few simple changes. For example, the bathroom is probably the most popular place people choose to install glass doors. You can simply swap out that annoying plastic shower curtain for a beautiful glass enclosure or door. Another good room to consider glass doors in, is your living room or den. Glass doors can make the room seem bigger and take advantage of natural light. However, there are a few things to consider in order to choose the right glass doors for your needs.


  • Your budget is the most obvious factor that will affect your selection. Make sure you talk to your contractor about the price of installation so you can add it to the actual price of the door.


  • Do you have the room for that beautiful glass enclosure you are imagining in your bathroom? Maybe not. And maybe those double French doors will end up taking too much of your wall to be a practical addition to your den. An experienced contractor can help you decide if you can build that glass shower you want or if you are better off with a clean glass door instead.

Upkeep and Functionality

  • How much work are you willing to put into cleaning and maintaining the glass in your bathroom? Remember, you won’t be able to simply pull a curtain over a dirty tub or shower anymore. You are going to want to avoid any buildup that hard water can cause on a glass door. For other living areas, you may want to avoid big glass doors if you own a big dog or have small children that can quickly fill up those clear glass doors with tiny handprints every day.


  • What do you want your bathroom to look like? There are many different styles of glass doors and shower enclosures. You can opt for the simple, clear glass doors or choose one that has a certain design or etching to give your bathroom a different style or feel. Or maybe you want to choose a style that will give a little more privacy than a clear glass door. For the living room, a sliding door may end up looking cleaner than the double doors you initially wanted.
