Choosing the Right Hardware for Your Frameless Shower Door

When you’re thinking about your frameless shower, it’s important to have the right hardware. Hardware that doesn’t fit quite right or is of poor quality will cause damage to your beautiful frameless shower, so it’s vital that you pick the best parts. The door for your frameless shower requires that you have the correct pieces. Having the correct pieces ensures your door operates as it should, remaining beautiful and functional for years to come.

Design and Shape

The design and shape of your hardware is possibly the most important initial consideration. There are certain shapes that are more common such as square, round, and oval. There are also more utilitarian designs and those that are more decorative and flowing.

You want hardware that will fit your overall bathroom aesthetic and aren’t just trendy ideas so that they remain to look beautiful.

You may also need to consider that your space is unique and that the needs of your bathroom could require specialty hardware. The hardware should maximize functionality while remaining beautiful.

Finishes and Colorshardware

Finishes and colors are another important consideration. Each option can make the different designs and shapes look very different, from matte and satin to brushed and high polish. Matte and satin finishes are less bold and may look better over time, whereas a bright polish is bold but may show wear more quickly.

There are two main colors that are typical: brushed nickel and silver. These are typically the preferred colors, as they tend to stay ahead of any trends. However, you don’t need to limit your choices to just these options. There are other colors in specific finishes that are much more interesting, including satin brass, matte black, antique brass, oil rub bronze, and chrome. Depending on the combinations you choose, you may end up with a modern look or something that suits better with the turn of the century style. No matter which of these you choose, they should be matching pieces and should fit your door as intended.


Sometimes overlooked, materials are incredibly important in the hardware-choosing process. What you choose is so important to your frameless door because it dictates the longevity of your setup. Your bathroom will see a lot of use over the years, and because it’s often a very damp area, you need materials that won’t react immediately to all the additional moisture in the bathroom. Avoiding rust and, therefore, the damage is essential to maintaining the quality of your bathroom. The highest quality frameless shower door materials will resist rusting and will hold up to frequent use for a long time.

After talking with several shower door company’s, I am very glad that I decided to go with Maryland Frameless Showers. There was great communication throughout the entire process. I like that the owner, Jim, came out to measure my shower and listened to what i wanted. He did what other companies told me was not possible! The price was fair and no one tried to “upsell” me products that I did not need. Our new shower looks fantastic and I highly recommend this company.
