Benefits of Glass Shower Doors

Whether it’s for a bathroom remodel or building a new home, glass shower doors will increase the value of your home with their modern appearance and easy-to-clean quality. With the help of our top-notch installers at Stevens Glass, you can select the perfect style glass shower doors for your aesthetic and functional needs, and then sit back and relax while we install them.

Reasons to have Shower Doors

Glass doors are almost always preferable to shower curtains. By opting for glass doors for a standalone shower or a bathtub and shower combination, you can add quite a bit of value to your home during a remodeling project. Once you install the glass shower doors, you won’t have to replace them for many years to come, because you can keep them in flawless condition for years.

Many homeowners find this type of enclosure for showers to be appealing due to how easy it is to clean. Shower curtains trap quite a bit of moisture in the creases, often resulting in significant wear and mold occurring. It’s also not uncommon for water to leak out onto the floor, causing damage to the floors. By installing a shower door that uses glass, the user can just wipe down the door with a shower cleaning tool. The task takes only takes seconds and will result in your bathroom looking much nicer than with a shower curtain.

Glass panels and doors can fit into a variety of decorating schemes, allowing you to make an investment that will help improve the appearance of your bathroom for years to come. They are very neutral, which is especially appealing to future home buyers who will want to put their own special touch on their bathroom. Though shower glass doors do cost more than a disposable shower curtain, making this one-time investment in your home will save you money in the long run and keep those surfaces in pristine condition.

  • It was really nice that you mentioned how shower doors are better than curtains because not only do they last longer with a small amount of maintenance, they were also safer because they do not accumulate a lot of dirt and moisture. I am sure that my dad will like the former better since he does not like maintaining things nor does he like replacing them. At least, by having shower doors that are durable and requires little maintenance, he won’t have to worry about a thing. I will suggest this to him. Thank you.
