Frameless Shower Doors: Do they live up to the hype?
A well-designed bathroom is worth its weight in gold. Think: ample storage, bright lights, a water-saving toilet and somewhere to hang the towels. Like many people, you’re probably wondering if a frameless shower door is worth the investment. We took a look at the pros and cons (and their impact on your cleaning routine) to shed some light on the issue.
No Dirty Shower Curtain
A frameless shower door eliminates the need for a shower curtain. Body oils combined with soap scum really make shower curtains look disgusting, and mildew can build up sometimes overnight. Replacing the shower curtain can remove this constant cleaning headache.
Elevates Your Look
A frameless shower door creates a more open and stylish look, making your bathroom seem twice the size. And, it doesn’t matter if your bathroom is small or spacious, the ability to customize is endless. You can literally get glass cut to fit any dimension you need.
Mold, Corrosion and Possible Leaks
Going frameless, removes any of the nooks and crannies where mold likes to grow. With less hardware, avoiding corrosion is not an ongoing battle. That said, make sure you use a well-recommended installer that seals your glass door to perfection to avoid possible leaks.
As with any home improvement project, a frameless shower door can be expensive. But if you’re planning a bathroom renovation it’s definitely worth considering. It really will change the look of your bathroom.
Hard water spots appear on your glass when water drops dry there. To keep your frameless shower door clean, squeegee the door after every use.
