Tips on How to Properly Install Bifold Shower Doors
If you have an older home with limited space, a bifold shower door can be a great option. Bifold shower doors are a great way to save space in your bathroom. They can be installed in a variety of ways and make it easy to fit more than one person at once, allowing you to have an extra place for people who need their own space. Bifold doors are also easy to clean and maintain, making them more practical than standard shower curtains or rod-and-rail installations. Here are some shower door installation tips for bifold shower doors:
Measure the Space Needed
First, measure the space that needs a shower door. You’ll need to know what’s available in your room so you can figure out how big of an opening you want for your new shower door. The first thing to do is measure both sides of the opening—the top and bottom measurements will be different! Next up is measuring how high off-ground level your window will be when installed on its track system or shelf system. This will help determine where in line with this measurement should go.
Add the Right Amount of Window and Panel Molding
If you’re installing a bifold shower door, it is important to add the right amount of molding to make them look good. This can be done by adding molding around all four sides of your bifold shower doors. In addition to hiding gaps between them and their frames, this also helps hide other gaps such as those found in between panels or windows.
Install the Hinges on the Two Doors Next
When you’re installing the hinges, make sure that they are level. If they aren’t, adjust them until they are. Use a screwdriver to tighten them and then use a hammer or rubber mallet to tap them into place.
