5 Key Factors in Choosing the Perfect Glass Shower Door
Renovating a bathroom increases a home's livability and adds value when it comes time to sell. It is one of the best investments a homeowner can make, but only if the homeowner spends the time and money to do it correctly. If you are thinking about remodeling one of your home's bathrooms, you need a plan with a good design and a budget to cover quality fixtures.
Choosing Your Glass Shower Door
One of the most the most prominent fixtures in the bathroom is the shower enclosure. Its design and functionality make an incredible difference in whether homeowners are happy with their remodel.
When you are shopping for your glass shower door, keep these guidelines in mind:
Stick to the budget. There are a lot of beautiful glass shower doors out there, and it is easy to go overboard and buy a model which won’t leave you enough money to finish your project. Have a budget for your shower door before shopping. Luckily, there are beautiful shower doors at every price point.
Write down your needs. Maybe a member of your family is older or needs help to get in and out of the shower. Or perhaps you have always dreamed of installing a steam shower. Share these requirements with a salesperson to guarantee that your shower door is appropriate for the way you plan on using your shower.
Know your measurements. There is no point in falling in love with a shower door if it won’t fit in your bathroom. Be certain of all of your measurements before shopping. Besides knowing how much space is available in your bathroom, determine how much space you have to bring the shower enclosure into your bathroom.
Reflect your style. Do you prefer a modern, traditional, spa-like appearance? Do you want framed or unframed doors? There are many styles you can choose. Since a shower enclosure takes up the most space in your bathroom, it will set the tone for the entire room. Try to find a shower door style which matches the look and feel of the other fixtures in your bathroom.
Know what you are getting into. Your new glass shower enclosure looks great in the showroom, but unless you take care of it, soon it will become a grimy eyesore. Before buying a shower door, find out how much day-to-day cleaning it will require. Some shower styles, like coated glass enclosures, require less maintenance than uncoated glass. While other shower doors can require more maintenance than anticipated.
