An ample bathroom space offers the opportunity for lots of customizations, and this includes the style of shower door you can use for your shower space or shower enclosure. Although it seems a small bathroom space limits your customization option, this is not true.
The inline shower glass door panel allows you to customize your shower enclosures or shower corner with a trendy glass shower door. It not only fits and helps you maximize the space available, but it also updates the look of your bathroom from the everyday look into a modern and elegant look.
WHAT IS AN INLINE SHOWER DOOR?
An inline shower glass door is a glass door that consists of two or more glass panels. These panels are installed on a straight line, which is at 180 degrees. One of the glass panels can swing out and serves as the entry and exit point into the shower enclosure. In contrast, the other panels remain static and do not move.
Apart from one of the panels being a swing door, sliding shower glass doors with stationary panels on one or both sides can also be categorized as an inline shower glass door.
WHY IS IT USED INSTEAD OF OTHER SHOWER DOOR OPTIONS?
- Economical use of space
Inline shower glass doors maximize the minimum available space that exists in the bathroom without affecting style. They make your bathroom look trendy and modern and still make economical use of your bathroom space.
The inline arrangement makes the shower door appear as double swing doors. However, the fact that one is stationary and only one-panel swings help you save on floor space that can be utilized for more critical customizations in the bathroom.
