Cambridge TB Knob MBL Tub - Shower Doors of Charlotte

If you are thinking about renovating your bathroom or are in the process of building a new one, choosing the right shower doors may not seem like the most important consideration on your list. But the right shower doors can make all the difference to the aesthetic and functionality of your bathroom. 

While traditional shower doors have been the go-to for years, they come with the disadvantage of being hard to clean and difficult to maintain. That’s where frameless shower doors come in. Frameless shower doors are stylish, modern, and practical. And they can enhance the look and feel of any bathroom. In this post, we’ll look at five reasons why frameless shower doors are the perfect choice for any bathroom.

They Offer Endless Design Possibilities

One of the best features of frameless shower doors is that they offer endless design possibilities. With no frame to limit the door’s shape or size, frameless shower doors can be customized to fit any bathroom’s unique design. The glass panels can also be tinted, etched, or patterned to match the bathroom’s decor. The result is a shower door that seamlessly blends in with your bathroom’s overall design, creating a unique, seamless and functional space that you are sure to love.

Their Doors are Significantly More Functional

Traditional shower doors are limited by their frames. By restricting how much they can open, it can be a challenge getting in and out of the shower. When it comes to frameless shower doors, it is the very absence of a frame that makes it easy to open out to its maximum, making it easier for you to get in and out of the shower. Your frameless shower door is the ideal choice if you have mobility issues or have young children and need a shower that is easy to access. 

They are Relatively Easy to Clean

If you have ever had a traditional shower door you will know that one of their biggest challenges is cleaning them. The frames make it hard to reach certain parts, and over time, they can accumulate dirt and grime, and before you know it, you are dealing with mold under the frames. Frameless shower doors, on the other hand, are relatively easy to clean. With no frame to worry about, you can easily reach every part of the door, making cleaning a breeze. This means that you can spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your shower.

They Minimize Mold Risks

Mold is a common problem in showers, especially in areas with high humidity levels. Traditional shower doors are prone to mold growth because of their frames, which provide the perfect breeding ground for mold spores. Frameless shower doors, on the other hand, minimize mold risks. The absence of a frame means that there are no gaps or crevices for mold to grow, making it much easier to keep your shower clean and hygienic.

Finally, They Increase the Value of Your Property

Installing frameless shower doors is an investment in your home. They not only enhance the look and feel of your bathroom, but they also increase the value of your property. Home buyers today are looking for homes with modern, updated features, and frameless shower doors are a desirable feature that is sure to make your home stand out from the rest.

When Is It Time to Remodel or Replace Your Shower?

Did you know that an outdated bathroom is among the top reasons homebuyers avoid purchasing a home? Even if you do not plan on selling your home for several years, have you considered the difference a bathroom remodel could make for your own personal happiness? 

In fact, in 2020, a majority of U.S. homeowners renovated their bathrooms to improve their own living conditions! Almost half changed the overall layout of their master bathroom, and 33% renovated their bathrooms simply because they “could no longer stand them.”

One of the most common (and satisfying!) ways to improve your bathroom is a beautiful, walk-in shower

But, if you need proof that a new shower is truly the answer, consider the following reasons it might be time to remodel or replace your shower

  1. Leaky & Underperforming Fixtures
  2. Tight Spaces & Difficult Access
  3. Inconvenient, Hazardous Shower Design
  4. Chipped Tile or Damaged Shower Walls

Leaky & Under-Performing Fixtures

A leaky shower fixture or less-than-ideal water pressure may not be a bathroom emergency, but this is your “me time” we are talking about! On the other hand, such quirks in your guest bathroom are not exactly communicating a warm welcome to your friends or family members. 

Plus, replacing your fixtures or your shower altogether is worth it – literally. A leaking fixture could be costing you money on your water bill every month or, worse, causing water damage to your home, which could lead to dangerous mold growth. 

Tight Spaces & Difficult Access

Bathrooms should be anything but tight spaces, and yet too many bathrooms that do not make efficient use of their square footage can feel claustrophobic. Even though a tub-and-shower combination might seem like the best use of space if you cannot fit both in the bathroom, the truth is that shower tubs can be bulky both physically and visually, as well as difficult to climb-in. 

In contrast, think of how a glass, walk-in shower immediately opens-up space in your bathroom; rather than creating separation with a shower curtain or door, a glass door creates depth by drawing your eyes further-in. Additionally, a walk-in shower makes the space easier – and safer – to access!   

Inconvenient, Hazardous Shower Design 

On a similar note, whether your bathroom was built in recent years or decades ago, shower designs are not always built with practicality in-mind. Sometimes, this is simply due to different homeowners’ needs and preferences. Other times, a poor shower design can be attributed to a small bathroom space or dwindling budget.  

Whether it is your shower’s size, lack of a bench or seat, or its irritating location in the bathroom, all are inconveniences that could turn into slip-and-fall situations or other accidents. For example, a swinging shower door that bumps into another fixture – such as a toilet or bathtub – is particularly unsafe because the glass could easily break if the door swung too quickly.  

Chipped Tile or Damaged Shower Walls

Every shower is prone to wear and tear, but that doesn’t make it any less disappointing when you discover a chip in the tile, a dent in the shower wall, or peeling caulk. And rather than writing off the damage as something you can live with, you will need to assess these aging shower symptoms for more serious reasons. 

Broken, chipped, or damaged shower tiles can actually be a safety hazard. For one, you could easily cut yourself, but water could also seep through the cracks and cause mold growth, which is a risk to your health. Similarly, damaged shower walls and peeling caulk trap moisture, which can cause mold, mildew, and even wood rot.
