There are many factors to consider when choosing a glass shower door vs. a curtain for your shower. Some things you may consider when making your decision include personal maintenance preferences, budget, layout, style of your home and long-term plans.
Benefits of a Shower Door vs. Curtain
If you want to make a drastic difference in your bathroom’s appearance, a shower door is the best option. The shower door can be the focal point and is an integral part of a bathroom that adds a sleek, contemporary look. A shower door will also open up your bathroom with the airy look of a clear glass shower door so you won’t feel separated from the rest of your bathroom. While a shower curtain may be the cheapest solution, they generally lack style and value.
Shower curtains need to be thoroughly maintained to prevent mold and mildew from breeding on their surface. When deciding between a shower door vs. a curtain, you’ll find that glass shower doors are easier to keep clean. Just wipe down the door with a shower cleaning tool, like a squeegee. Cleaning only takes seconds, and your bathroom will look much nicer than with a shower curtain.
Replacing a Shower Curtain with a Glass Door
Today there are more shower door choices than ever before, with a wide spectrum of sizes, colors, glass types and details to match any style and décor.
