There are a number of reasons why shower replacement may be the best choice for a home. A comfortable and functional shower can improve the look of the bathroom and help to preserve the home’s plumbing.
Replacing the shower can help to remove and prevent mold buildup. Installing non-porous walls in the shower eliminates the chances of mold accumulation in the future. Adding a liner to the shower walls makes the walls easy to clean, so the shower will look its best for years to come.
Another benefit of adding liner to new shower walls is the elimination of grout. Grout can house a buildup of mildew, soap and dirt. If the new shower walls don’t contain grout, cleaning time is reduced and the shower will be free of toxic substances.
There are a number of shower tile options as well. Tiles can add color and texture to the shower. The material of the tile can also make the bathroom look especially upscale and luxurious.
Replacing the shower head can also improve the look of the shower. Many shower heads are adjustable and deliver different degrees of water pressure. Shower heads are available in a number of metallic finishes to complement the color of new shower walls.
Replacing or installing a shower door can also enhance the function of the shower. Shower doors can add visual appeal to the shower, as well as decrease the chances of water spilling on the floor. Depending on the type of material the bathroom floor is made of, excessive water content could damage the floor in the long run. The shower door can update the look of the bathroom and even make the area appear larger. Shower doors also provide a barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom.
Fiberglass shower doors are popular among homeowners, since the material is easy to install and clean. However, the material does scratch easily so gentle cleaners are best. Fiberglass is available in a number of shapes and colors. Homeowners who want a bathroom with a modern look should choose neutral fiberglass colors, as bright colors can appear dated. Glass doors can give the shower and bathroom an elegant look. To ensure that the installation results are satisfactory, professional installation is best.
