Did you know that the average person spends a total of one hour and 42 minutes per week in the bathroom? An additional one hour and 25 minutes of each week is spent in the shower. That equals out to more than six months of our lives. When you think about it that way, it’s easy to see how important the look and feel of your bathroom truly is, and one of the main ways you can improve on this is with your shower door.
Shower doors can be more than just practical. They can also be stylish. In fact, the right shower door can really open up the room and add an air of elegance to your décor. As time goes by, however, you may find that the shower door you currently have installed either isn’t performing or is simply no longer aesthetically pleasing. Not sure if it’s time for an upgrade? Here are a few tell-tale signs.
Your shower door looks dingy.
Years of wear and tear can leave your shower door looking old and outdated. Over time, the frame may have lost its luster and you may find it difficult to really get the glass to look clean and clear. If your shower door is taking away from your bathroom’s décor, it’s probably a good time to think about making a change. One of the nicest thigs about frameless shower enclosures is that they don’t have frames, so they age more gracefully. They also provide a timeless look that matches any décor.
Your shower door is leaking.
Old shower doors aren’t just unpleasant to look at. Oftentimes their functionality diminishes with time as well. A leaky shower can pose a danger to you, your family and guests in your home – especially if you have tile flooring. It could also lead to the need for costly repairs down the road. If you’ve noticed water pooling around your shower’s exterior, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Frameless shower doors create a tight seal all around your shower, preventing leaks and keeping your bathroom safe.
Your shower door pinches your fingers.
Taking a shower shouldn’t involve fear of having your fingers painfully pinched. Yet, many older style shower doors become hazards like this over the years. Even if your current set up isn’t a danger to the adults in your home, it could still pose a risk to the little ones. This is one of the biggest reasons families choose frameless enclosures over traditional ones. Not only do they look elegant, but they’re sturdy and safe for bathers of all ages.
Your shower door makes noise.
As time goes by, the frame around your shower door may begin making noise when it’s opened or closed. If taking a shower involves creaks and squeaks, it’s probably a sign that your bathroom could use a facelift. Frameless shower doors are designed to be completely silent, both now and many years into the future.
If you’ve noticed any of these four things, you may want to consider a shower door upgrade. The good news is, beautifying your bathroom with a sealed, sturdy and silent shower enclosure is easier and more affordable than you may think. In fact, you can even customize your frameless glass door to match your unique style, needs and preferences.
