Benefits Of Frameless Showers

Posted on

During the process of remodeling your bathroom, there will be many different options that you can choose for your bathroom shower. Regretfully, many people will simply fail to consider the full range of options that they have available to them when it comes to their showers.Frameless showers can be an option that is easily overlooked, but there are some important benefits to using this type of shower over a traditional shower.

Enhanced Customization

Frameless showers are easily customizable. This can prove to be important for those that have a unique design that they are wanting for their showers or that must accommodate their shower in a fairly small area. This enhanced customization is due to the fact these showers can be easily made to almost any dimension due to them being a single piece. This is in contrast to traditional showers that will be comprised of multiple components, such as the frame, glass and gaskets.

Improved Durability

The cost of upgrading or replacing your shower can be rather high. Therefore, you will need to be sure that you are choosing a type of shower that will be extremely durable so that it will last for years without needing to be replaced or undergo major repairs. A frameless shower door can excel in this regard due to the lack of a metal frame. The metal frame for showers will often be one of the first parts to suffer damage due to corrosion. By minimizing the amount of metal that is used, it is possible to greatly extend the life of the shower.

Ease Of Cleaning

Cleaning your shower enclosure will be an important step for keeping your bathroom as attractive as possible while also minimizing the amount of bacteria that may be in his part of the home. Sadly, traditional showers can be extremely difficult to clean. This is due to the shower have many nooks and crannies along the frame where bacteria and other substances can accumulate. Cleaning these areas will require you to manually use a small brush or sponge to vigorously scrub these areas. Depending on the size and complexity of your shower, this can be very labor and time intensive. A frameless shower is extremely easy to clean due to it having fewer components where dirt could gather. Typically, the hinges of a frameless shower door will be the most difficult to clean, but this will still require a fraction of the work that a traditional shower frame would need.
