After working in sweat and grit, all you want to do is get the ickiness off of you. There is nothing you will not do to take a bath at that moment. When you get home, you run towards the bathroom and hurry while taking off your clothes. You enter the shower stall, let the water run its course and scrub yourself clean. While doing that, you may wonder, hey! If a shower is just so important why can’t I do it in a little more style? Why not add a little chic to the process?
Many of the homeowners are usually bent on finding a way to improve the looks of their homes. In case of a bathroom, most of them work towards giving it a trendy new look. Since the fixtures in it usually wear out quickly, a bathroom is the most frequently remodeled room of the house. A new sink, a stylish bathtub, trendy taps and knobs and a shower door; all have contributed a lot to renew the model of a bathroom.
A shower door is a fairly new addition as compared to the other features. There are many types available in the market like tinted glass or scrolled plastic framed and sliding or push/pull doors. However, the advent of frameless shower doors has caused a rage in the markets like never seen before. Frameless shower doors have completely altered the looks of today’s bathrooms. The open feeling that the frameless door emanates is quite important, especially if the bathroom space is limited. The preference of frameless shower doors is increasing quite fast. From luxurious hotels, holiday resorts to trendy households, these doors are the top choice of many people.
Using frameless doors makes it easier for a person to get in and out of the shower. As compared to the usual sliding or swinging shower doors, this particular type serves the user better. Moreover, these frameless doors reduce the need of using metals for paneling. Since the shower gets wet and high on moisture, there is a threat of rust building up quickly on the metal. Using just glass and no frame will help avoid this problem.
The glass used on these doors is strong and very durable. It can resist any unintentional force or movement caused while getting in or out of the shower. Also, these doors prevent water from going outside the shower much more effectively as compared to the shower curtain.
One of the disadvantages of installing a frameless shower door is that there is more glass left to clean. If you don’t clean up properly, the water stains on the glass become permanent and lessen the appeal of the door. Also, since a stronger and thicker than normal glass is used for making these doors, its cost goes up. It might get so expensive that it may be out of the range of the homeowners with a limited budget. In addition to this, the glass needs to be handled very cautiously. The delicacy of the glass may cuase some difficulties while installation.
