Should You Use Shower Curtains Or Doors?

Last Updated on November 30, 2019 by Terry Ohara

When redecorating your bathroom and shower cabin you will be faced with two options to enclose the water and your privacy from the outside while you are in the shower, the choices include traditional shower curtains and glass shower doors. I know it is pretty hard to decide between them, and I will try to make your job easier today by stating the advantages of both so you can choose the one that fits the bill. Without further ado, let’s dive deeper.

Let’s start with the pros of shower doors. First of all, a shower door is the most attractive option for a shower cabin since its transparent design will make space look bigger and brighter in general. Most of the modern doors in the market feature some minimal and refined aesthetics, made out of quality hardware, and recently we have seen some minimal designs that added those satisfying matte black aesthetics combined with barn door style. However, you are not limited to that as there is a wide variety of glass patterns and colors you can choose from, and on top of that specially coated glasses are also excellent and will add further to the disability of the glass door. While we are at it I can say that a shower door will last for a long time before needing to be replaced.

On top of all this keeping, a shower glass clean is very easy, and you can do it in a whim with a squeegee. It is the easiest thing to do and your bathroom will always look shiny, however, you should clean it after every shower, since the water and soap stains will not make your glass look as good as it can be. In addition to this, a glass door enclosure for your shower will add amazing value to your bathroom and the resale value of your house, despite costing a little more initially compared to a shower curtain.

On the other hand shower, curtains are very versatile creatures, coming in many different shapes and sizes, also the color selection is simply endless as you can find different styles that fit your bathroom easily. In addition to that their initial cost is very low even the best curtains for your shower will not cost as much as an entry-level shower door. I should also state that they aren’t as easy to clean as shower doors, as you need to soak them in either bleach or vinegar to prevent mold and mildew, and you need to replace them after some time.

However, thanks to their low-initial cost you can change up the style and give a breath of fresh air to your bathroom.
