by Marion Holmes

As you remodel your bathroom, don't overlook your shower when it comes to what you will remodel. You will definitely want to remodel your shower if you really want to transform your bathroom. Going with a glass shower door or a frameless glass shower door can offer you many benefits.  

Benefit #1: Value 

When you are remodeling your bathroom, you want to ensure you are adding value to your home. You don't want to engage in a remodel and not improve the value of your home. When you add glass shower doors to your bathroom, you are implementing a technique that will bring value to your home. Your home value should increase when you add glass shower doors to your bathroom remodeling project. 

Benefit #2: Easy Cleaning 

Your bathroom is the space where you go to get clean, so it is a space you want to keep clean. However, you don't want it to be a space that is hard to clean. Glass shower doors are a great alternative to a shower curtain. Shower curtains seem to be a breading area for mildew and mold in the bathroom. Plus, they are difficult to clean.  

Glass shower doors do not attract mold in the same way. They are straightforward to clean with just a little soap, water, and a squeegee to wipe everything away. They can allow you to keep your bathroom clean without a lot of effort.  

Benefit #3: Increased Safety 

Adding a glass shower door to your bathroom can increase your safety as you use your bathroom. It is easy for water to get on your floor with a shower curtain, especially if you forget to tuck the curtain inside of the bathtub and leave the curtain hanging over the edge of the bathtub.  

You can easily slip and fall with a shower curtain keeping the water from your shower out of the rest of the bathroom. With a glass shower door, the water isn't going to get into your bathroom accidentally. Your floors will not accidentally get wet, and you will be safer getting in and out of the shower or tub.  

Benefit #4: Open Felling 

Finally, adding a glass shower door can give your bathroom a more open feeling. The glass will open up your space and allow light to travel throughout your bathroom. It is an easy way to make what is often a small space feel a lot larger.  

When it comes to your bathroom, you want a space that feels open and is functional and safe. That is what you get when you add a glass shower door, or a frameless glass shower door, to your bathroom. Talk to your contractor about adding a glass shower door to your project.
