Shower Door of the Week: Fully Framed Lucette in Shepherdstown, West Virginia
The Lucette is a classic framed shower enclosure with a traditional bypass sliding door. But what does that mean? You’ll see us write a lot about “frameless” shower doors, because they are super on-trend. Within the shower industry, “frameless” refers to any shower enclosure that doesn’t have metal adhered to the edge of the glass. As you can see, this Lucette goes in the opposite direction with a bold chrome frame. Shower Door Expert Emily weighs in: “I really dig the chrome finish against that charcoal grey tile! And wouldn’t Lucette be a fantastic name?” Friends, please tell us if you name a child or pet Lucette.
In general, framed shower doors are less expensive than fully frameless doors. This custom unit (in Emily’s hometown, Shepherdstown!) has a buttressed inline panel over the bench seat. A non-standard layout will cost a bit more, so definitely check in with us about all your framing options. Not to brag, but our framed systems are built to last and look better than comparable products from big-box home improvement stores. We don’t offer any builder’s grade systems, the kind usually pre-installed in new developments. Our framed showers are always custom built for your individual space!
Framed shower doors are definitely one step up from shower curtains. Emily again: “When you’re investing in your house, maybe for the first time, small improvements like headboards and shower doors just make you feel so much more established in your own space, y’know? I felt so adult in my first bathroom without a dingy shower curtain!” And, aesthetics aside, some shower spaces really do need a door. A shower curtain wouldn’t work with the bench seat in this shower door of the week. Bottom line: finding the right solution for your shower is personal based on your space and vision.
