What to Consider Before Installing a Glass Shower Door

In the past, bathrooms were not given much consideration when it came to interior design. However, today many homeowners are giving their bathrooms a modern makeover. Contemporary bathroom designs are more open and much brighter. If you’re thinking about re-designing your bathroom, you may be considering a glass shower door or enclosure for your home. Glass showers are quickly growing in popularity. They are not only beautiful but functional as well. Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether or not one is right for your home.

Decide What Type of Look You Want to Achieve

One of the main appeals of a glass shower door is that it can help open up your bathroom. If you have a smaller bathroom, this can really help to make the space feel larger. You have a couple of options if you decide to go with a glass shower door. First, you can have a tub with a glass door instead of a shower curtain. Many homeowners find that glass doors appear much more sophisticated than curtains. If you have no need for a tub, you may want to consider a full glass shower enclosure instead. Glass enclosures are elegant and very customizable. In fact, our team can work with you to create a one-of-a-kind shower enclosure specifically for your bathroom.

Glass Shower Doors and Safety

For some people, tubs simply aren’t practical. This can be especially true if you’re older or have any sort of mobility issues. If you’re getting ready to re-do your shower, you might want to consider opting for a walk-in enclosure. These types of showers are much safer for people who are prone to tripping while trying to climb into a traditional tub. Additional safety features can be added to further customize your glass shower such as grab bars and built-in seating.

The Cost of Glass Shower Enclosures
