Why Choose a Sliding Shower Door Shower curtains basically serve the purpose of keeping water from getting onto the bathroom floor and fixtures. Of course they are light, roomy and offer many colors, but even when you have a shower curtain, you must still mop up areas of the bathroom floor afterwards. Simpler to clean and durable, it might be worth the time to invest in a sliding shower door. With an impressive range of styles from which to choose from, a frameless sliding door is also a space-saving solution as it takes up less room than you have with a swinging shower door. Something else to consider is if a person must use the assistance of a walker due to a disability or handicap, they often bring the device into the bathroom with them which takes up more bathroom space, and many times a swinging door will hit the device, therefore the type of shower which smoothly slides to open and close can be a blessing. Plus no more worrying about splashing water on the floor and having to always wipe it up. Once you have determined the budget you have to work with, look at the metal surfaces which exist in your bathroom to consider what type of metal frame the door should have since these are available in different finishes. The door does not have to have a metal frame however it does give the door a bit more support and can protect the glass. Decide on the type of shower door you want and consider what type of glass door will work such as a clear or frosted texture as well as its thickness. Usually the thicker the glass, the more expensive the door will cost. Another factor to consider is that denser types of glass weigh more; increasing the general wear and tear of the tracking if is not properly installed. If you have the opportunity to view a model, open and close the door to test the ease of how it slides, its quietness and does it seem secure upon closing it. Enhancing a bathroom with a sliding shower door is the type of upgrade which will often increase the value of the home as they are easy to maintain and can make the overall appearance of a bathroom neater and attractive. Carefully take the time to consider all of the shower door options when you're ready to choose one.
