DIY Factory Window Shower Door: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you tired of looking at your old shower curtain or plain glass shower door? Consider upgrading to a stylish factory window shower door! A factory window shower door can give your bathroom a fresh, modern look, and it's a fantastic DIY project. In this post, we'll guide you through the process of creating your very own factory window shower door step-by-step.

Materials and Tools You'll Need

Before we begin, let's gather all the necessary materials and tools. Here's what you'll need:

Measuring tape

Factory window frame (available at most hardware stores or online)

Tempered glass panels (custom cut to fit your frame)

Drill with bits and screwdriver attachments

Mounting hardware (screws, anchors, brackets)

Silicone sealant

Glass cleaner


Protective gloves

Step 1: Measure and Plan

First, measure the opening of your shower to determine the dimensions of your factory window frame. Visit your local hardware store or search online to find a factory window frame that fits your measurements. If needed, you can have the frame custom-made or cut to fit. Remember to choose a frame that fits the overall aesthetic of your bathroom.

Next, calculate the number of glass panels you will need. Factory window shower doors typically have several glass panels, so determine how many panels will work best for your desired design. Keep in mind that tempered glass is a must for safety reasons.

Step 2: Order Your Glass Panels

Once you've determined the size and layout of your factory window shower door, go ahead and order your custom-cut tempered glass panels. It is best to consult with a professional glass supplier to ensure the right size and specifications for your project.

You can also choose the thickness of the glass and the finish (clear, frosted, etc.) to match your preferred style.

Step 3: Assemble the Frame

Now that you have your factory window frame and glass panels, you can start assembling the door. Lay your frame on a flat surface, making sure it is clean and dry. Arrange your glass panels on the frame according to your desired design. Measure and mark the locations of the mounting brackets on the frame.

Next, drill pilot holes for the mounting hardware. Attach the brackets to the frame following the manufacturer's guidelines. Put on protective gloves and carefully attach the glass panels to the frame using the provided hardware.

Step 4: Install the Shower Door

With your factory window shower door assembled, it's time to install it in your bathroom. First, clean the area where the door will be installed, making sure the surfaces are dry and free from dust or debris.

Use your level to ensure the frame is straight, then mark the drill holes on the wall or shower enclosure for the mounting hardware. Drill the holes and insert the wall anchors (if needed). Attach the door to the wall or shower enclosure using the provided mounting hardware and make sure it's secure.

Step 5: Seal the Edges

Lastly, apply a silicone sealant around the edges of the glass panels and frame to prevent water leakage. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the proper application technique and drying time.

Clean your new factory window shower door with glass cleaner to remove any fingerprints or smudges. Once the sealant is dry, your new door is ready for use!

Tips for Maintaining Your Factory Window Shower Door

To keep your factory window shower door looking its best, follow these simple maintenance tips:

1. Clean the glass regularly using a non-abrasive glass cleaner to prevent soap scum buildup.

2. Wipe down the frame with a damp cloth to keep it free of water stains and grime.

3. Inspect the silicone sealant periodically and replace it as needed to prevent water leakage.

A factory window shower door is a fantastic way to upgrade your bathroom and add a touch of style. With this step-by-step guide, you can create your very own DIY factory window shower door and enjoy the benefits of this trendy design. Happy DIY-ing!
