When it comes to choosing the best option for your bathroom, it can be difficult to decide between a glass shower door and a shower curtain. While shower curtains are an inexpensive and easy-to-install solution, glass shower doors are a more elegant and long-lasting option. Shower doors are easy to clean and, unlike shower curtains, do not become unusable over time due to the build-up of mold or mildew. Best of all, shower doors reduce or completely eliminate the water that splashes on the bathroom floor while you shower, reducing cleaning time.
On the other hand, shower curtains are a much less elegant solution and can cover up a nice shower that you'd like to show off. A glass door makes the shower a focal point, drawing attention and providing privacy if needed. However, a shower curtain and liner never completely seal the bathroom shower. A glass door will ensure that water does not escape from the sides, but the shower curtain will always be loose, with space for it to slide.
Glass is an indestructible material that is not affected by everyday wear and tear. You don't have to worry about changing them after a while. On the other hand, shower curtains are inexpensive and can be changed at any time to mix them up or to match your current decor and aesthetics. Installing a glass door is more difficult, complicated and laborious than placing a simple shower rod and curtain, and it can be more difficult to clean.
Glass shower doors are undoubtedly an investment that, over time, are profitable, elegant and easy to keep clean. An all-glass shower door can be more than just a way in and out of the shower and, at the same time, keep the bathroom floor dry. You can also easily take them off to take them with you when you leave and you don't have to buy a new set for your next shower. Glass shower doors are considerably more expensive than a fabric shower curtain but they can become an integral part of the overall look, complementing and improving the enclosing shower.
Glass shower screens have transparent and shiny glass panels that allow the uninterrupted flow of light throughout the bathroom space. Shower curtains also have their advantages. They come in every design imaginable so you still have a lot of freedom when it comes to choosing the final look of your shower. Some homeowners who are proficient in tools and have some DIY experience can install a framed shower door themselves.
If you live with roommates and share a bathroom, a shower curtain is also a better option for this situation. Deciding between these two options can be challenging because each choice has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Glass shower doors are an investment that is profitable, elegant and easy to keep clean while shower curtains are inexpensive and can be changed at any time.
