Are Shower Doors Better Than Curtains?

Deciding between a shower door or shower curtain is a tough decision. Glass shower doors are easy to clean, elegant, and cost-effective in the long run. On the other hand, shower curtains are inexpensive, and you can change them to match your home’s current aesthetic.

Find out if shower doors are better than curtains.

What Sets Shower Doors Apart from Shower Curtains?

Glass shower doors are more elegant than curtains, and there are a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from. Although the same can be said about curtains, they’re not as crisp as a door. Reserve shower curtains for your children’s bathroom because you can get one with their favorite cartoon character, and you can treat your bathroom to a glass door for a spa-like experience.

In today’s blog, we’ll explore five reasons why shower doors reign superior.

Reason 1: Shower Doors Provide an Open Feeling

If you want a more open look for your bathroom, a clear, glass shower door can make it look spacious; this is helpful for claustrophobic people. Most shower curtains obstruct your view, but when you choose a shower door, you won’t feel as separated from the rest of your bathroom.

Reason 2: Shower Doors Last Longer

Shower curtains grow moldy and accumulate soap scum and stains within a few weeks. Yuck! How many times have you gone to the store for an emergency curtain once your old one wore out? The costs rack up.

In contrast, a shower door can last years or decades with proper maintenance. Best of all, they’re eco-friendly.

Reason 3: Shower Doors Keep Water In

One of the most annoying feelings in the world is finding puddles outside your tub, thanks to your shower curtain. Not only are they an annoyance, but they also pose a slip risk. Since shower doors are attached to a bathroom’s walls, they keep water inside the shower. This eliminates the risk of your floor and vanity experiencing water damage.

When you upgrade to a modern, glass shower door, you’ll be able to enjoy relaxing showers again without worrying about slipping on a puddle.

Reason 4: Show off Your Shower’s Interior With a Glass Door

Perhaps you’ve installed a classy shower head, bench seat, or glass tile accents inside your shower. Why hide your renovations with a curtain when you can show off your shower’s interior with a glass door?

Reason 5: No More Wrestling With Your Shower Curtain

Ever had a shower curtain wrap around your body mid-shower? What a pain! Since shower doors don’t move, you’ll never have to wrestle your curtain again.
