A Closer Look At The Benefits Of Using A Glass Shower Enclosure

Posted on

While simply using a standard shower curtain in your bathroom may be the easiest and most affordable solution to keeping the water from escaping your shower, it certainly is not the most beneficial option. Glass shower enclosures have many benefits to offer when compared to shower curtains. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits these shower doors have to offer so that you can decide for yourself if they are the right choice for your home. 

Glass Shower Enclosures Are Easier To Clean Effectively

Mold, mildew, and soap scum can present a real battle when trying to keep your shower clean. This is especially true for people who choose to use shower curtains since these curtains can easily retain moisture in their folds, which can result in the growth of mold and mildew. The folds of a shower curtain can also be very difficult to clean thoroughly without taking the curtain down to launder it. Glass shower enclosures on the other hand are extremely easy to clean. These glass enclosures can also help to eliminate the growth of mold and mildew in your bathroom by allowing you to easily remove any excess water using a squeegee after each shower.  

A Frameless Shower Enclosure Can Make Your Bathroom Look Bigger

It can be difficult to truly relax in a bathroom that feels too small. Unfortunately, adding more space to your bathroom can be a rather complex and ultimately expensive undertaking. Thankfully, you can avoid these high remodeling costs and still enjoy a bathroom that feels much larger when choosing to simply replace your shower curtain with a glass shower enclosure. While the appearance of additional space which is created by these glass enclosures may be nothing more than an optical illusion, the fact is that a bathroom that looks bigger will often feel bigger as well despite the fact that you have not actually increased your square footage. 

Glass Shower Enclosures Will Last For Many Years

While a traditional shower curtain may not cost you must upfront, these curtains will need to be replaced on a fairly regular basis over the years. These replacement costs can really add up over time. As a result, choosing to use a shower curtain may not really be as affordable as it seems at first. Glass shower enclosures, on the other hand, are extremely durable. Consequently, these glass enclosures will often last for as long as you own your home. This benefit can result in glass shower enclosures being far more affordable over the long term.
