Glass Shower Enclosure

Should I Install A Glass Shower Enclosure?

A glass shower enclosure is a good idea whether you want simple remodeling or major bathroom renovations. This option is a better alternative to old shower curtains and permanent partitions. Installing glass  shower enclosures also have many other benefits that include improving the aesthetics of the bathroom. Having a glass enclosure in your home will also improve the air quality in the house, unlike with shower curtains which may grow mold overtime. There are many reasons to upgrade your bathroom to include a shower with glass enclosures, many reasonings being more light.

A dark shower is never a pleasant one to use. When you have shower curtains or other enclosures, you will be obstructing light from reaching the shower area. Your only option will be to have more light fixtures in that space, Which will increase your energy consumption. With glass enclosures, you will get adequate light in each area of the bathroom and that will improve your showering experience. Finding your essential items like your shampoo bottle won’t be difficult when you have more light coming through the glass into the shower. You can also limit the number of bulbs you have in the bathroom as long as they are placed strategically, you will reduce your energy consumption and pay less when the utility bills come in.

Enhances the bathroom space

Glass enclosures also make your bathroom look bigger than the actual size. If your bathroom has been feeling cramped lately, try installing a glass enclosure instead of having shower curtains. It will open the space up without compromising your privacy. You will get the segregation you want in the bathroom, with the shower area being separated from the toilet or the tub, without feeling like you are in two separate rooms. You can get a bigger illusion if you install lights and mirrors in a way that blends them with the shower glass.

Reduce chances of mould growth

The bathroom is a warm and mostly damp place. This means that it can be a thriving ground for mould to grow and disturb your air quality. It’s easy for fungi to start growing in humid conditions. If that happens, it can cause many respiratory related health issues. Shower curtains are hard to clean properly, making them an ideal place for the fungi to grow. You may have to wash them at least twice every week, which is also time-consuming and energy-draining.

When you have a glass shower, you won’t have to worry about mould growing in hidden places. The glass is easier to maintain and any foreign substance on the surface will be easier to notice. In most cases, you will only need warm soapy water to clean the glass.  These materials can already be located in the shower.

Glass shower enclosures are also safer due to the fact that they are not made with any chemicals that could be detrimental to your health. This is unlike shower curtains that are made with PVC, which may have high chemical content.

Improves home value

One of the best ways to increase the value of your home is by remodeling the bathroom. Installing a glass enclosure in the shower is one of the most affordable ways to make those changes. Apart from giving the bathroom the illusion that it is larger, glass enclosures also add sophistication to space. You can transform your bathroom from plain and boring to simple and elegant with glass shower enclosures. If you intend to sell your house, make the bathroom modern by having one installed.

Easy to maintain

Keeping up with the demands of modern life isn’t easy, and you don’t need anything else to make it harder. It may already be hard enough for you to balance your professional and social life. Having shower enclosures that you have to clean daily won’t help. Glass shower enclosures are practical and time-saving. You won’t spend all your free time cleaning them, and you won’t have to worry about the glass hiding gunk.

If you are considering having a bathroom renovation in Scarborough, glass shower enclosures are a great idea. They are easy to install, they won’t crowd your bathroom, and they don’t require a lot of money, time, or energy to maintain. They are the perfect fixtures to upgrade your bathroom, regardless of the size.
