Renovating an Apartment Building: Tips

I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur, so when I saw a local apartment building up for sale at a great price, I decided make the investment. I am a manager by day, so I thought I was ready to be a great landlord. After I had trouble attracting new tenants, I decided to try investing in a few upgrades to see if I could attract more tenants with the added features. I hired a local contractor to work on my first project, which was a fitness room. I remembered that I always looked for buildings with them when I rented apartments! I then had some work done on the grounds and in the apartments themselves. The building is completely full now, so I realized it was a good investment. I decided to start a blog to share my renovating and construction tips with anyone who needs them!

Things To Consider When Choosing Your Custom Made Shower Doors

If you have decided to remodel your bathroom, you may be considering the different styles of custom made shower doors that are available. There are many different types of shower doors to choose from, ranging from framed to semi-frameless to completely frameless styles. Before you choose the custom shower doors for your bathroom, you should consider these factors to ensure you have the perfect shower door to meet your needs.


If you are trying to stay within a budget for your remodeling project, you will also need to factor in the cost of the shower door. The cost of a shower door can vary widely depending on the style, the type of glass it is made of and if it is framed, semi-frameless or frameless.

Usually, framed shower doors are less expensive than semi-frameless or frameless. However, regardless of which style you choose, there are many different beautiful doors that can be purchased at an affordable price.


You will also want to consider how the shower door will function. Do you prefer a door that opens outwardly or slides back and forth to open and close? The best functioning shower door for your bathroom depends primarily on how much opening space you will have in front of the shower enclosure.

You may also want to think about what will be most convenient for you and the members of your household who will be using the shower frequently. If you have older family members in your home, it may be easier for them to use a hinged door that opens and closes easily than one that slides back and forth.

Total Available Space 

Choosing the best shower door also depends on the total amount of available space you have for the shower enclosure. If you have a large space available, a semi-frameless or frameless door that opens to a wide entrance should work fine. However, if the total available space is confined to one corner of the bathroom, a sliding framed door may be the best option.

Your Personal Style 

Your personal style preferences are also very important to consider. Once you have decided on the size and functionality that will work best for your bathroom, you want to choose a shower door that will also be visually pleasing as well.

There are many different types of glass and hardware available that can help you give your shower doors your own personal touch of style. Whether you prefer a modern contemporary look or a more classic traditional style for your shower enclosure, it will be easy to coordinate your entire bathroom to achieve the look and feel you prefer.

Taking all these factors into consideration before you choose your shower door will help ensure that you are completely satisfied with your selection. Once your bathroom is complete, you can take pride in knowing that you will have a beautiful shower enclosure with a perfectly fitting door for many years to come.
