Do you know what to do if a window or glass door is broken in your home? How you clean it up, who replaces it and how you handle the entire situation will all have an impact on the outcome. My site contains tips for dealing with a broken window or glass door in your home. Hopefully, you will be able to learn from my many experiences and avoid the mistakes that I have made.

Making Improvements To Your Rental? Invest In A Shower Door That Benefits Everyone


Remodeling your home makes sense when you want a functional or cosmetic upgrade. But, when it comes to managing a rental, you do not have to make any changes as long as things are clean and functional. While replacing the appliances or changing the windows may not be a worthwhile investment, there are quite a few projects that are worth doing because they provide benefits to everyone. For instance, getting a new shower door may not seem like much, but it is an affordable upgrade that is hugely beneficial.

Pivot to Avoid Accidental Damage

Sliding shower doors are common in bathrooms because of the standard bath and shower combo. The tub's length makes it easy to add several glass pieces to make up a sliding door. But, when you have a dedicated shower space, you should get a pivot door to minimize the chance of accidental damage. While it is not likely for someone to slam a sliding door in one direction, enough force can cause it to break. It is easy to avoid this with a pivot door because people will just walk in or out and close the door.

Frameless to Reduce Cleaning

A framed shower door may be the least costly to install, but it will also come with an undesirable feature. This type of door is harder to clean because there are frame crevices that are not easy to reach. Going frameless will tell potential tenants that their bathroom cleaning responsibilities will be minimal. They will be able to clean the door in single strokes and without having to use several cleaning solutions.

Frosted to Provide Privacy

If you are renting out a place that has a single bathroom, you do not want to limit your tenant from only having one person in the bathroom at a time. An excellent idea is to get a frosted shower door that provides complete privacy to the person who is taking a shower. This will make your tenants feel comfortable with leaving the bathroom door open even when the shower is being occupied. It can help you avoid having tenants who feel the need to move out to find a place with a second bathroom.

Replacing the shower door in the bathroom of your rental might seem like a small change, but it can have a huge impact when switching from framed to frameless and choosing frosted glass over clear.
