What effect does installing a new shower door have on the home value?

What effect does installing a new shower door have on the home value? Installing a new shower door is a relatively easy "do it yourself" upgrade that many homeowners consider. Let's look at some of the reasons why, and see if it's really worth the time and cost involved. Everyone knows that upgrading features in your home can have a positive impact on the value of it. For example, upgrading the kitchen cabinets or installing a new sink can not only give your kitchen a better look, but also increase the value. This same principle holds true regarding the bathrooms in your home, and a great place to start is the shower door. A shower door upgrade is most useful if you currently have no door installed and are just using a curtain. Installing a door will provide a tight seal and keep more water in the shower and off of the floor. Another benefit is that a door is much more durable than a curtain.  Shower curtains can mold and mildew over time, while a door that is  properly cleaned can last an indefinite period of time, taking the place of many shower curtains. An increase in your home value is also a consideration to keep in mind when considering a shower door. No curtain could ever create the increase in home value that a high grade, well built and luxurious shower door can. While you may not recoup the entire cost of the door and installation via a home value increase, you should see at least 75% of the entire cost of the project come through as an increased value in your home.
