3 Advantages To Installing Frameless Glass Shower Doors

Posted on

Frameless glass shower doors offer a variety of advantages when compared to other types of shower enclosures such as shower doors that require a metal track or a shower liner or curtain. Learning more about the advantages of a frameless door can help you to decide if upgrading to this type of shower enclosure is the right choice for you and your home. You can begin learning more about these advantages by continuing to read below. For even more information regarding all of the advantages that a frameless shower door has to offer, be sure to reach out to a contractor in your local area.  

Advantage #1: Frameless Shower Doors Create The Illusion Of A Bigger Bathroom

If you have always felt as though your bathroom was too small, choosing to install frameless shower doors could allow you to enjoy the appearance of the bigger bathroom you dream of. This is because thanks to the solid glass construction of these doors, frameless shower doors can create the illusion that your bathroom is bigger than it truly is. This illusion is made possible by the way your eyes interpret light. Since frameless doors do not interfere with the flow of light through your bathroom, your eyes will interpret more available space than when the light is abruptly stopped by a shower curtain or metal door frame. 

Advantage #2: Frameless Shower Doors Provide Nowhere For Mold And Mildew To Hide

A traditional shower door uses a metal track or frame to keep it in place. This track is the perfect place for mold and mildew to hide since it is often hidden by your moving door. To make matters worse, these tracks can be incredibly difficult to clean if you do discover mold and mildew hiding inside them. With a frameless shower door, there is no track or frame to harbor mold and mildew. This means that your doors will be easier to clean so that you can maintain a truly hygienic shower. 

Advantage #3: Frameless Shower Doors Can Be Custom Made To Fit Any Space

One of the reasons that some homeowners still make use of a shower curtain or liner is that traditional shower doors simply do not fit into their shower space. This is because traditional shower doors are only available in limited shapes and sizes. If your bathroom does not offer standard dimensions, you may not be able to effectively utilize a traditional shower door. This is not a problem with frameless shower doors. This is because frameless shower doors are custom-made to fit the exact dimensions of your shower so that they fit perfectly no matter what size or shape your shower may be.
