Shower curtain or shower doors? It’s an age-old question. Perhaps you are trying to decide between the two options as you move into a new home or maybe you are just tired of replacing your shower curtain. Whatever the case may be, there are some real benefits to be had by installing new shower doors in Laramie, WY instead of trying to make due with yet another shower curtain when the time comes to replace your existing one. Here are four reasons to consider shower doors instead of shower curtains this time around:
Shower doors are more aesthetically pleasing. Shower doors offer a much more put-together and luxurious look in any bathroom. Whether transparent or opaque, shower doors also lend more symmetry and make a bathroom feel and look more sophisticated. When shopping for shower curtains, it can be difficult to find a design that is elegant and not overly kitsch. It can also be incredibly difficult to find a shower curtain that matches your current bathroom decor and color scheme. With professional shower door installation, you can select and customize your shower doors to suit your tastes and to complement your bathroom design.
Shower doors are more durable and have longer value. While the initial cost of installing shower doors may be higher than that of your average shower curtain, shower doors still end up being a much more economical choice. Whereas you will need to replace a shower curtain quite often, it is possible that you may never have to replace those shower doors, giving them truely sustainable value.
Shower doors are easier to clean. Shower curtains, due to their flimsy nature, are difficult to scrub down. Soap scum easily collects and gathers on shower curtains and it is usually very difficult to remove. On the other hand, shower doors provide a much easier cleaning experience for homeowners. For this reason, shower doors are often viewed as the more hygienic option out of the two. Moreover, with the accumulation of different bacteria in the folds of a shower curtain, the possibility of mold and mildew buildups increases—there’s nothing worse than pulling back your shower curtain to find a small patch of growth on it!
Shower doors add increased home value. In addition to saving you money, shower doors also add value to your home because they are perceived as an “upgrade” to your home.
