Glass Shower Doors: Why?


Your bathroom is one of the most visited rooms in the house, and updating it after a while is something you're likely to do. Glass shower doors are an effective way to modernize and upgrade the room. Why?

Easier Cleaning

A simple wipe-down can dry and clean glass shower doors. This is less time-consuming and cumbersome than soaking an entire shower curtain in the bathtub or stripping the shower rod of a fabric shower curtain that has to be laundered. If you want to eliminate a bunch of cleaning time, glass shower doors make sense.

Enlarging the Room

Your budget might not allow for a renovation or a room-enlarging project at this time, but you can create the effect with glass shower doors. Shower curtains block off the room into a separate tub area, which can create the feeling of a small space. Glass doors, however, allow the eyes to roam further into the room, and people can see all the way through to the other room. The room can look enlarged even though you haven't actually made the area any bigger. This can seemingly brighten the space as well, depending on your bathroom's paint and color schemes.

Reducing Mold

If shower curtains are all you've ever used, you already know the telltale sign of mold that can creep up along the bottoms and sides of plastic or fabric curtains. Mold is never healthy, and if people in your household have allergies, mold can aggravate them. Glass shower doors can eliminate the threat of mold because it's so easy to clean and dry them. There are no crevices or folds where mold spores can thrive.

Eliminating Spills

Anyone with a young child knows that the time after a shower can be a slippery one in the bathroom because the shower curtain may not have been closed correctly. As a result, water could be all over the tiled floor. That's messy, but it's also a fall risk. Therefore, glass shower doors could be sensible if you want to avoid those kinds of water spills and prevent falls.

Saving Money

Curtain liners and the curtains themselves require replacement. Tears, mold, and other problems can mean you're making new purchases several times throughout the years. Instead, glass doors only require installation. Over time, money could very well be saved.

Glass shower doors are worth discussing with your partner or family. Consider these benefits and create a better, cleaner bathroom for everyone in the household.
