Glass shower doors are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners, especially those partaking in renovation and reconstruction works. The reasons why so many homeowners and even owners of hotels and rental properties are installing glass shower doors are listed below in detail.

They are good at trapping water inside the shower

Those homeowners that are sick of cleaning up large puddles of water after taking a shower often find themselves turning to installing a glass shower door because of how effective they are at keeping the water inside. This is because it is so much easier to remember to close the glass shower door than it is to remember to make sure that a shower curtain and its liner are pulled fully across and in place correctly. Glass shower doors have vinyl seals on them which are highly effective for the purpose of water containment; partner this with the impermeable and solid barrier of glass and you have something that will not leave a puddle of water on the bathroom floor.

They are very easy to care for

Because glass shower doors are sealed permanently within the manufacturing process, it means that they stay much cleaner for much longer, and also makes them more resistant to corrosion. Glass is much easier to clean and wipe down than what a shower curtain and its liner is. This helps to prevent the build up of mold and mildew.

They provide a more modern aesthetic

There is a popular trend for homeowners to add some more modern aesthetic pieces to their bathrooms that have a more traditional style. This blending of the new and the old adds some more clean architectural lines to a bathroom space that really makes the style pop and stand out. So installing a modern glass shower door is the perfect way to change the look of a bathroom completely and add a contemporary twist without the need to change everything else in it. 

They can be customized to suit a specific space

Glass shower doors can be customized to fit any size or shape of space. This means that they can be used in anything from large bathrooms to small shower rooms and can be made to suit any budget. They can also be customized to suit a homeowner’s individual preferences or styles. For example, a glass shower door can be made without a frame or it only has part of a frame. The glass used in the shower door construction can also be clear, frosted, or even feature some sort of pattern.

The takeaway

It is clear to see from the above why glass shower doors are being installed into bathrooms by so many homeowners. They are highly versatile in terms of how they can be manufactured, they are suitable for all bathroom aesthetic styles, they are great at what they are designed for – stopping water leakage, and they are easy to keep clean.
