When it comes to bathroom remodels, most people focus on making upgrades to their countertops, floors, and cabinetry. And while updating those things can improve the look and feel of the room, they’re not always the most impactful way to make the space feel like new. One of the best improvements you can make is to your shower, and one of the best ways to improve your shower space is by installing a glass shower enclosure. Here are a few great reasons to invest in this simple upgrade.
They Open the Space Up
With a shower curtain, you’re able to hide your shampoo and soaps, but they can make your space feel smaller than it is. Why? Because the curtain effectively acts as a wall between the bathroom and your shower. When you install a glass shower enclosure, you open up the space. Instead of looking at the curtain anytime you walk in, you’re able to see the entire room. This can make even the smallest bathroom feel more spacious.
They Add Value to Your Home
Shower curtains may be common, but they won’t make your home stand out if you decide to sell it in the future. Buyers want to see modern touches that make the home feel more elegant. Ditching the shower curtain in favor of a glass shower enclosure will make your home stand out with prospective buyers. This can help you attract better offers and may make it easier for you to set a higher asking price if you decide to sell.
They Improve Safety
Shower curtains can help reduce the amount of spray that reaches the rest of your bathroom anytime you shower, but they usually can’t stop puddles from forming on the floor if the curtain isn’t closed properly. That puddle can easily turn into a slipping hazard if you’re not careful. With glass shower enclosures, the doors close completely and contain any water from the shower. The result is a dry floor that’s safe to walk on when you’re done.
They’re Easy to Clean
Curtains can mold and mildew in a matter of days if you don’t dry them out between showers. This can leave your bathroom smelling musty even immediately after you clean it. Worse, it’s incredibly difficult to clean mold and mildew off of your curtain, forcing you to replace it sooner than otherwise necessary. Glass shower enclosures are easy to clean and are naturally resistant to mold and mildew growth. All you’ll have to do is clean the glass with your preferred glass cleaner and wipe down the tracks once a week.
Upgrade Your Bathroom
If you’re looking for a simple way to refresh your bathroom, upgrading your shower with a glass shower enclosure can be a great option. You’ll feel like you have more space, will be able to save time cleaning your shower each week, and will help your home stand out from others on the block.
