Top 3 Reasons to Choose Shower Glass Doors Over Curtains , Greece, New York

One of the ongoing debates in the bathroom remodeling world is whether homeowners should go with curtains or shower glass doors. While shower curtains are a highly traditional choice found in many bathrooms, glass doors present an assortment of advantages that make them the superior choice. Here are some of the most important reasons homeowners, homebuyers, and renovators should go with glass doors for their bathrooms. 

Why Shower Glass Doors Are Better Than Shower Curtains 

1. Open Up Your Bathroom

For bathrooms, which can often be the smallest rooms in a house or apartment, glass doors expand the sense of space and square footage by allowing natural light to filter through. Frameless glass shower doors further enhance this effect thanks to their minimalist design, which totally eliminates the division between the tub and the rest of the room.

2. Avoid PVC

shower glass doorsVinyl curtains are known to contain PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, a chemical that can be harmful to your health. While many shower curtain brands are releasing products that no longer contain PVC, the chemical has not been phased out completely and some shower curtains on the market still contain it. With glass doors, you’ll steer clear of this toxic chemical. 

3. Style

Shower glass doors provide an air of quality and luxury that curtains can’t match, making them a must for homeowners and renovators alike. Consider your style options to maximize aesthetic appeal. Clear glass is the most common, allowing you to show off attractive tiling and elegant shower fixtures. Meanwhile, frosted glass is available in a variety of appealing etched patterns. It’s slightly harder to clean but allows for increased privacy while still allowing light to filter through.
