When you’re renovating a bathroom, one of the elements to consider is replacing or changing your shower door or shower curtain. While a shower curtain may be the most appealing short-term cost option, it can result in additional expenses and problems in the long run.
Disadvantages of a shower curtain include:
- Maintenance and upkeep
Shower curtains need to be cleaned and maintained to prevent mold and mildew buildup. This could mean washing your curtain with soap and water every couple of weeks or replacing the curtain every several months to avoid constantly cleaning it.
- Utilizing floor mats or daily towel cleans
Shower curtains tend to leave a wet mess on the floor following a shower, requiring extra clean-up time. Failing to clean up the wet area after a shower could result in mold and mildew on the outside of your shower. Shower doors contain water in a much neater manner than shower curtains.
- They take away from the modern look of your bathroom
If you’re looking for a more modern, classic look in your bathroom, consider installing a shower door instead. Unless you’re prepared to keep up with the cleaning and maintenance required, shower curtains can be detrimental to the look and feel of your bathroom.
In the long term, shower doors require less maintenance and cleaning hassle than shower curtains, and the variety of shower door designs and options can add to the modern feel of your bathroom. The process of installing a shower door can vary depending on the layout of your bathroom, so call a shower door installer to assist you with such a project.
