Shower curtains serve a purpose, and most homes will have at least one of them. Custom shower enclosures are a desirable upgrade, and besides the nice aesthetic, they can make your life a lot easier. Let’s see how they compare to traditional shower curtains.
All About Shower Curtains
A basic shower curtain is inexpensive, but you can spend more on a designer version. You’ll need to buy a shower liner if yours doesn’t have one made into it. Shower curtains are easy to replace, and fabric ones can be cleaned in your washing machine. You’ll need to remove it from the rod and hang it back up once it’s dry. Shower curtains can make a bathroom look smaller, and must be tucked behind the bathtub to prevent water from getting on your floor. Shower curtains are also prone to fostering growth of mold and mildew and can look quite shabby if not replaced frequently.
Custom Shower Enclosures
Custom shower enclosures made from glass brighten up a bathroom space and make it look larger. The panels are made in a variety of styles and textures, so you can choose one to fit your shower. Here are some of the other benefits custom shower enclosures provide:
- Less water splashing onto the floor
- No need to replace them often, like shower curtains
- Mold doesn’t grow on glass
- Less cold air will get in since it is enclosed
- Custom shower enclosures add value to your home and are a good selling feature
