Shower enclosures do not only contribute to the overall look of your bathroom, they also play an important role in functionality. This is why your choice of shower enclosure is crucial to your bathroom in terms of personal maintenance preference, long term plans and even your budget. Shower curtains often require a lot of maintenance to prevent mold and mildew from growing on the surface. If you leave the shower curtain carelessly out of the tub, it will drip and make a mess on the floor. In modern bathroom designs, shower curtains are not innovative or fashionable.
When decorating your bathroom, there are lots of ways you can make it functional, fashionable and easy to manage. The shower enclosure is one of the most important choice to make. Glass shower enclosures are the most modern, fashionable and functional options for shower enclosures and here are a couple of reasons why:
Glass shower enclosures are attractive
Not only do glass enclosures look sleek, they also come in a variety of option to suit your bathroom design specifications. From clear, almost invisible, glass enclosures to etched translucent glass, you can play around with a wide variety of design options. Glass shower enclosures allow free flow of light into your bathroom to bring out the best features of bathrooms from polished tiles to shiny fixtures.
You can customize glass enclosures to fit your bathroom specifications. Shower curtains come in a fixed size and design and there is little you can do to make it more suitable for your bathroom. Whether you are building a new home or renovating your old bathroom, you can find customized shower glass solutions for it. The glass can be cut down to size to fit the functional and aesthetic needs of your bathroom. You can even find glass shower enclosures for showers built into corners or awkwardly tight and irregularly built spaces.
Increase the value of your home
Glass shower doors and enclosures are a modern aspect of construction. Great looking bathrooms are a major selling point for homes on the property market. If you plan to resell your home in the future, opt to remodel your bathroom using glass doors and enclosures instead of shower curtains to increase its value.
You might think of glass as a fragile material that will not last long. Contrary to that thought, glass used for shower enclosures is tempered and treated to make it stronger and more durable. The glass is shatter and scratch resistant. Maintenance is as simple as wiping down to remove water droplets. For general cleaning a soft sponge and soapy water is enough to get the glass clean, as well as the handles and frame. The glass may even outlast the fixtures on the enclosure.
Glass shower enclosures are quite affordable and offer great returns on investment, especially during a resale. They also make your bathroom look much bigger with all that flow of natural light.
