Several choices in buying a glass shower door, bathroom glass

Q. We recently moved into a new home and the good news is that our bathrooms are in pretty good shape. However, both bathrooms use shower curtains for the tub and stand-alone shower stall. We want to install glass shower doors, and want to know the different types available.

A. Glass shower doors generally come in one of four basic styles. I recommend choosing from one of the following:
Pivot — This is a swinging-type shower door that can open out from the right or left. It works like a traditional door and allows easy access. Pivot doors are usually found on standard-size shower stalls with adequate bathroom space.
Sliding — Great for tubs and larger shower stalls, these two-panel glass doors are space-savers since they do not open out. One panel slides into the space of the other to provide access.
Bath screen — This is the door to look for when you want the benefits of a sliding tub or shower door, but you need even greater access. Bath screens have at least three sliding panels that provide easy entrance.
Steam — If you're adding a steam unit to your shower area, a steam-type shower door should be installed. Such doors include a top section that completes a tight seal to hold in the steam.
