A few years ago we added a master bathroom, choosing the Kohler Purist shower door. We loved the door and the sidelights; it really adds to the modern look of our master bath. However, once we began showering in the Master bathroom, we noticed a small rust spot bleeding into the marble saddle. To prevent the spread, we dried the door and saddle after every use, but it continued to bleed and now looks awful. After writing to Kohler several times, they confirmed that the parts that caused the issue are made of brass and plastic (though the hardware is stainless steel). They stated that the parts “should not” stain or rust. They sent me a courtesy replacement set of the same components (in their mind I guess this solves the problem).
I have been in my home for 23 years, and have remodeled all my bathrooms; they all have Kohler products, and the bathroom in question includes a Kohler jacuzzi tub, toilet, 2 Kohler sinks with Kohler faucets/towel racks, etc, and of course, the shower door. I am happy with all of their other products but am extremely upset about the shower door and its effect on the marble saddle. This will be my last Kohler purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldJoan Great product but get a professional to install
I bought this product on the advice of the contractor who refinished my bathrooms. With his skilled installation it fits well and opens easily. It's a great shower door for my guest bath and without the bar above very tall people (visiting sons who are all over 6 ft tall for instance) can use it without having to duck. But I would never have attempted a do-it-yourself install. It is very heavy and has to go in just right so that it opens and closes reliably. Since it is quite expensive I didn't want to take any risks and I am very glad I did not. I expect years of reliable use -- and lots of happy guests.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NYLawyer Bad Quality for the Price
Considering that this was one of the more expensive tubs (over $1,500) that HD sells and that it is a name brand, I was surprised by the poor quality of this tub. As soon as it was installed, I got my rubber duckies, filled it up and pressed the "on" buttom only to find that nothing happened. I brought my installer back and he told me that the "on/off" switch was not good. He ended having to install a switch on the wall to get it to work. The plastic knobs that control the jets are likewise very cheap and flimsy. I expect that we will have problems with them down the road.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RenovationBlissAmiss Gorgeous door. No complaints.
I love the fact that the door size is adjustable as we have a bit of an odd-sized opening to our shower. The optional hooks on the inside and outside have been really convenient for our loofah and towels.
The only reason I put a 4 instead of a 5 for ease of installation is that there's no note forewarning the installer that the holes for the the two sides don't line up, which apparently is the standard configuration. Our guys pre-drilled the holes on both sides of the shower opening only to find out that the holes for the side where the door closes needed to be further back by an inch. This left us with 3 holes in our tile, which we now have to replace.
So, for future buyers & installers- check and double check where the holes will need to be drilled before drilling.

This shower door is absolutely beautiful! And for the price it is just fabulous. The clear glass without the obstruction of hinges and frames makes the shower appear larger. The silver accents and handle goes with any color scheme.
My contractor was a little confused when the doors arrived because the width of the two glass pieces seemed larger than the shower opening. But then we discovered the doors overlapped. That was not detected in the pictures but a great design surprise. We love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 78miller Great value for nearly clear shower door.
We ordered the Kohler frameless door kit after getting estimates for custom frameless shower doors. This product saved us more than $1,000 compared to those custom products. Installation was not difficult, w/the notable exception of drilling the mounting holes thru the porcelain tile. Once installed, the door functions superbly. The "clear view" finish on the glass is also a definite bonus. I highly recommend this product to anyone considering a DIY frameless shower door installation!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SunHound The shower doors are beautiful and functional. I love them.
I found and ordered these doors online, and Home Depot was considerably less expensive than its competitors. The doors arrived timely and undamaged. They were apparently not simple to install, as both the original professionals who did the first and the handyman who installed the second one put the side panel in backwards and had trouble figuring out how to get them properly hung. However, once hung, the doors are more than satisfactory. I love them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Linda Product is attractive and appears very substantial
Our opening was 34 1/2" so we originally ordered your 33" door since ad stated there was a 3" adjustibility. When our installer was unable to install we contact Kohler
and were told door only adjusts downward to 30". We found your ad very misleading and it ended up costing us two installations, one for the 33" & one for the 36". We were not happy campers.Complaint not with your product, complaint with your ad
