Bathroom Remodeling: Five Reasons to Install A Glass SHower Door


There are many factors to consider when planning a bathroom remodel.

Create the Illusion of Space

Not all houses have large, spacious bathrooms able to accommodate any bathtub or shower, but even tiny bathrooms can be remodeled to look better and create the illusion of more space. Glass shower doors are the perfect solution. There are many styles and configurations available at, so homeowners should have no trouble finding a frameless shower door that fits in the bathroom and makes it look larger.

Let in More Light

The benefits of allowing more natural light into the shower include easier makeup and hair removal, improved mood and ambiance, and even access to a little extra vitamin D. Natural light is less harsh than indoor lighting, as well, and lets the home’s residents get a better idea of how they’ll actually look when they head outside instead of seeing the worst of themselves under fluorescent lights. Adding a frameless glass shower door will let more natural light into the shower enclosure so the home’s residents can take advantage of that extra sunlight.

Add Some Extra Luxury

A glass shower door will make even a smaller bathroom feel like a luxurious spa. It will foster an ambiance of tranquility and openness, making getting cleaned up after a long day at work or before heading out for a night on the town feel less like a chore and more like an excuse for some much-needed pampering. Not only will homeowners and their families love that extra touch of luxury, but so will potential buyers if the family ever chooses to sell the home.

Showcase Beautiful Shower Designs

Many homeowners incorporate beautiful, modern accents into their shower designs. They could be high-quality tiles, aesthetically appealing fixtures, or unique colors and accents. With a glass shower door, everyone who visits the bathroom will be able to appreciate the extra work that homeowners put into beautifying their bath or shower enclosures.



The ability to showcase unique designs in the shower enclosure also makes it easier to create a fully integrated decor throughout the entire bathroom. Choose matching fixtures for the sink or create a color scheme that complements that aesthetically appealing tiles. Either way, it will look better with a glass door.

Easier Cleaning

Glass shower doors are much easier to clean than curtains. Just wipe them down after use with a towel or rag and use glass cleaner periodically for a full, deep clean. Since most glass shower doors are frameless, there’s no need to worry about soap scum, mold, or debris getting stuck and creating a mess.

There are plenty of different styles and sizes available, so it’s easy for customers to find one that will perfectly suit the remodeled bathroom’s new design and the family’s needs.
