What is a Bypass Shower Door?

What is a Bypass Shower Door?

There are many options for shower doors, and a popular choice among homeowners is a bypass shower door.

Shower doors are an essential part of your bathroom. Generally speaking, there are six different glass shower doors: corner, frameless, pivot, round, trackless, and bypass. Each of these doors offers a different style and function to your bathroom, and it’s up to you to determine which works best in your space (but don’t worry, we can help you!). Today, we’re taking a closer look at the bypass shower door and the benefits it provides.

Information on Bypass Shower Doors

Bypass shower doors often referred to as sliding glass shower doors, work similarly to how a patio or deck sliding doors do. A bypass shower door can have a panel of glass that is set or stationary, and another that slides back and forth on a track, or both panes can slide. The track may feature manual rollers, or the moving panel may glide without wheels.

What are the Benefits of Bypass Shower Doors?

There are many advantages of installing bypass shower doors in your bathrooms. Here are several reasons why we love them:

Space Saver — If space is limited in your bathroom, a bypass shower door is a great option. Because they don’t have hinged doors, bypass doors aren’t limited by the space surrounding them, and space outside the shower isn’t a factor.

Easy to Use — Sliding shower doors are easy to use and make accessing the faucet and valves a breeze. Whether your bypass doors are installed on a bathtub or a shower, this type of door is easy to use and getting in and out is simple, especially for older adults or those with special needs.

Simple for Kids — Kids will inevitably start taking showers and tubs on their own. While this is an exciting milestone as a caretaker, it can also be stressful because children aren’t always careful to keep water in the shower or tub. However, a bypass shower door is simple for kids to use and works well to keep water inside, not out! A much better option than hinged doors or, worse, shower curtains.

Update and Modernize the Space — A full-on bathroom renovation is the dream of many homeowners but isn’t necessarily realistic given the cost and time they require. But a handful of small, inexpensive changes in your bathroom can make a big difference! Included in that list is swapping out your shower curtain or old framed shower door for a sleek and modern-looking bypass shower door! There are many style choices that will meet your wants and needs, such as framed or frameless, textured glass, exposed track, and more.
