Cost of frameless shower doors

Love the sound of sleek, minimalist luxury in the bathroom? You might want to consider getting frameless shower doors, or a whole frameless shower enclosure. In this guide, we’ll look at the average frameless shower door cost, including semi-frameless and custom options.

Love the sound of sleek, minimalist luxury in the bathroom? You might want to consider getting frameless shower doors, or a whole frameless shower enclosure.

These shower doors offer a striking contemporary look, and they’re also easier to clean – as there’s no chunky frame to worry about. They do usually cost more than framed shower doors, because without the support of a frame the glass needs to be slightly thicker and heavier.

In this guide, we’ll look at the average frameless shower door cost, including semi-frameless and custom options.

How much do frameless shower doors cost?

The cost of a frameless shower door depends on a number of factors, including the size and thickness of glass. The price can also vary depending on the opening mechanism – for example if it’s sliding or hinged.

Frameless shower doors cost as little as £230 for a standard hinged door with handle. But you could pay as much as £1,200 for a large hinged frameless door and inline glass panel.

Semi-frameless shower door cost

A semi-frameless shower door has much less in the way of a frame than an ordinary shower door. However, it isn’t completely frameless. They tend to be slightly cheaper, at between £160 for a single door and £500 for a larger sliding door.

Custom frameless shower doors cost

If you like, you can also have a custom frameless shower enclosure and door made to fit your bathroom’s exact measurements.

As you’d expect though, a bespoke shower will inevitably be more expensive. It could set you back around £1,000, not including installation.

How much does it cost to install a shower door?

Now that you’ve bought your frameless, semi-frameless or custom shower door, the next step is to get it fitted. The total shower glass door installation cost depends hugely on whether you’ve gone for an off-the-shelf or custom design, as well as the size of the door. Installation could cost just £130 for a simple job where the new frameless shower door is fixed into existing studwork, levelled and new sealant added. Installation could cost as much as £960 if tiles need to be replaced, the flooring needs to be repaired or replaced, or if the job is generally more complex.

FAQssemi-frameless shower door

Is it cheaper to get a hinged or sliding frameless glass shower door?

Sliding frameless shower doors tend to be cheaper than hinged ones, although it depends on the size. This is because there’s less engineering work required to support the weight of the frameless glass.

Can I install a frameless shower door myself?

If you are confident in your DIY skills and have at least one extra pair of hands to help you support the weight, you can try to install your own frameless shower door.

But it’s not recommended, as frameless glass shower doors can be very heavy. There’s a strong risk of breakage, which could be dangerous as well as destroying your beautiful new shower door. There’s also the risk of leaks, which can happen with incorrect installation.
