Not many people realize that their bathrooms could be out-dated. Yes, showers, toilets, and faucets are a part of upgrading your bathroom; but many people choose to begin with their showers when replacing or remodeling their bathrooms.
There are several options to choose from when replacing your shower. Frameless glass showers are one option; they are modern, and offer a sleek design that gives the illusion of a more wide open space, which can be a huge selling point for potential buyers.
Even though we all have dreams for our bathrooms, especially our showers, we must remember that they have to be functional and user-friendly. It needs to be replaced or remodeled based on you. You need to be able to use it, such as getting in and out, easily.
In addition to frameless glass showers, there are more options to choose from. Take semi-frameless glass showers, for instance. Unlike full framed showers, which are framed on all sides, these are only framed on the bottom, in order to prevent dripping.
Speaking of dripping, despite what you may have heard, both fully framed and semi-framed showers prevent dripping. Many people are fearful of replacing their original, full framed showers with a semi-framed one, because they have heard that water leaks out — This is a myth. If the shower is replaced correctly, there will be no leaking or dripping.
Next, on to the shower door itself. You can choose to have the new shower door open to the inside of the shower, or to the outside, or they can even be replaced to slide on a channel if space is an issue. You can also choose to have the door tinted or frosted for privacy concerns.
Last, but certainly not least, there is the matter of cleanliness of the newly replaced showers. Different options lead to different cleaning methods; depending on how often and how hard you want to clean your shower can determine which type of new shower you choose as your replacement. Semi-frameless glass showers have been known to be easier to clean because there are less or no additional frames to catch dirt and soap scum. Sliding glass shower doors require channels which, unfortunately, can catch dirt and soap scum. However, you can opt for one or two channels, depending on your needs.
