If you’re like most home owners, you’ve got a growing to do list of projects you’d like to tackle. Some may be small, like repainting the living room. Others might be big, like redoing the kitchen. One area of your home that shouldn’t escape your attention is the bathroom. There are lots of ways to transform a bathroom, some of which can be done on just about any budget. But if you’re really looking for that ‘wow’ factor, a glass shower enclosure should be at the top of your list. Here’s why.
They look way cooler.
The main reason people upgrade to a frameless glass shower enclosure is because, well, it just looks way better than a shower curtain. Glass enclosures really brighten up the room and add an air of elegance that a shower curtain simply cannot do. They also help to make a bathroom look more modern. Whether you’re looking to impress your guests or just want to enjoy a more luxurious ambiance when you’re in the powder room, frameless shower doors are the way to go.
They make smaller spaces appear larger.
When you remove the barrier of a traditional shower and curtain, you’ll instantly open up the room, which will make it look and feel much more expansive than it actually is. This is a great trick, particularly for home owners who have tiny bathrooms. To further magnify the available space, incorporate more light colors by installing new tile or repainting the walls. Trust us – you’ll feel like you just added several square feet to your room without having to actually modify its size.
They’re not just pretty to look at – they’re actually functional.
Traditional shower set ups can lead to dangerous water pooling on the floor, which can cause slips and falls. Likewise, excess water outside of your shower could lead to the growth of mold and mildew. Frameless shower doors, like the high quality options from My Affordable Glass and Remodeling, are specifically designed to seal in moisture and prevent leaks. That means no more risky splashes and leaks. Just a shower enclosure that’s both beautiful as well as practical.
They’re super easy to keep clean.
Ever try cleaning a shower curtain? It’s not fun. You could always replace it, but that expense adds up over time. Instead, why not invest in a frameless shower enclosure? They’re easy to clean (and probably way more affordable than you think). With a couple of basic cleaning items and a few simple steps, you can keep your shower glass doors sparkling and crystal clear every day.
They can be completely customized.
Most frameless enclosures can be fully customized, from hinge style and handle type to shower shape, glass texture, hardware color/finish and more. At My Affordable Glass, we also offer dozens of different types of glass, including six color options, five basic obscurity choices, a dozen textured patterns and an ultra-premium glass option – cast glass. That means you can design a one-of-a-kind shower that’ll fit perfectly with your bathroom size, layout and décor.
If you’re a home owner who is looking for ways to update and improve the look, feel and value of your house, don’t snooze on a bathroom remodel. Switching to a frameless shower enclosure could be an investment that pays off big time in the long-term.
