Hinged Shower Doors versus Sliding Shower Doors

When judging home builders, it pays to look at the details. Take shower doors, for example. It may seem  small, but when it comes down to convenience, maintenance and ease of use, it can make a difference. All stand-up showers, offered by David James Homes, come standard with framed hinged doors standard in three different finishes and four separate glass styles. The finishes include oil-rubbed bronze, polished chrome and satin nickel. The four glass styles feature different opacities to complement all privacy preferences.

Advantages of Hinged Shower Doors

  • Easy to clean and maintain. The tracks in sliding shower doors catch soap scum and grime at the bottom of the shower opening. With hinged shower doors, there is  no scrubbing to get the gunk out. Cleaning and maintaining your shower and a hinged door is easier.

  • A larger opening provides for better safety. Hinged doors open wide, as well as provide more space in the enclosure. This allows for a safer entry into and exit from the shower, which is especially important to those who have mobility challenges.

  • Provide a better look. Hinged shower doors are more appealing than sliding shower doors and offer a higher-end look to a home’s bathroom, providing a cleaner, more seamless appearance.
