Tips For Picking Your Next New Shower Enclosure

Posted on

Whether you are remodeling your entire bathroom or just the shower, you will want to make sure that you are putting in some time when it comes to finding the ideal shower enclosure. Even though there are a lot of shower enclosures to choose from, not all of them would be suitable for your bathroom or for your personal needs. To help you find the best one, you will want to keep the following points in mind:

Consider Opting For Clear Glass Instead Of Frosted

Frosted glass for a shower enclosure is not something that is in style as much anymore. Many people have found that the frosted glass can provide so much privacy that it actually reduces the amount of light that is able to make it into the shower. If having ample lighting in the shower is important to you, you will want to consider an enclosure with clear glass. Don't worry about the clear glass being harder to keep clean: as long as you are using quality cleaning supplies, a lint free rag, and you are wiping off the water droplets after each shower, it will continue to look stunning.

Skip The Framed Enclosures

They might seem as though they are the better choice, but having the metal frame around the shower enclosure glass really does not make it any more sturdy. In fact, it can actually make it a little dirtier and it can be one of the hardest enclosures to clean, regardless of the type of glass that is used. Instead of having to deal with a buildup of soap scum and mildew, you will simply want to purchase a frameless glass shower door. There are a lot of different ones to choose from, so you should take your time checking them out so you are comfortable with the purchase before you make it. Before you know it, you will have a beautiful, modern shower enclosure in your bathroom.

Once you have found the best out of all of the shower enclosures, you will want to make sure that you look for a bathroom remodeling contractor who can help you install it. Depending on where you buy the shower enclosure, the store might have contractors that they can send to your home for the installation. This will help to make sure that the installation is done perfectly so you will not have any problems with it any time in the near future.
