According to one study, the average American showers for eight minutes. Therefore, you might spend nearly an hour a week in the shower. To make that time more convenient, consider these reasons for upgrading from a curtain to a shower door.
Why Are Shower Doors Better Than Curtains?
1. They’re Customizable
Curtains come in standard sizes that don't always fit the size and shape of your shower. For example, if your shower has an angled ceiling, it will be next to be impossible to find a curtain that suits its dimensions.
A door, on the other hand, can be customized to any shape you need. You can choose sliding or hinged doors, depending on the space outside the enclosure. You can also select from a range of glass finishes, like frosted or bubbled, that cater to your privacy and aesthetic needs.
2. They’re Easier to Clean
The folds of a curtain retain moisture and create the ideal breeding ground for mold. Not only can this threaten your health, but it’s also difficult to clean.
With a shower door, you can simply use a squeegee or sponge to scrub the glass clean. It’s resistant to mold and permanent discoloration.
2. They Make the Room Look Bigger
Regardless of the size of your bathroom, a curtain will interrupt the flow of light and make it look smaller. With a door, the light will illuminate the glass and visually expand the space. Plus, it allows you to show off the tile, marble, or other material inside your shower.
