A completely customized shower door is art and science! We often have to use notched panels* to accommodate tub decks, knee walls, and bench seats. (A notched panel a stationary piece of glass shaped like Oklahoma flipped on its panhandle.) All in a day’s work! But with these corner shower doors in Clifton, Virginia we needed a panel to fit a remarkably tall vanity! There was even a slight lip, or overhang, on the vanity’s marble top. We needed to grind that out for a seamless u-channel fit. So this was a very custom shower door indeed! We’re quite proud of the outcome.
We used glass-to-glass pivot hinges at the very top and bottom of the shower door so that the three wall clamps and two corner clamps were the only hardware breaking up the horizontal line of sight. Pivot hinges distribute the weight of the shower door downward towards the curb, making it easier to hinge the door off of a glass panel instead of a tiled wall.
The brushed nickel hardware on this project ties in well with the earthy gray tones of the accent tile, as well as the gray streaks in the white marble. Overall, it’s a fantastic design completely customized for this space.
