Why Shower Doors are a Better Choice than Curtains

shower door enclosuresIf you’re still using shower curtains, this is your moment to be enlightened. Although at first glance it may not seem like there’s an important distinction between glass shower doors and a shower curtain, there is.

1. Superior water protection

Shower curtains may have been designed to keep water in the shower but we all know that it doesn’t always work out that way. The plastic flaps around while you’re showering and the next thing you know there’s a puddle you have to clean up. In comparison, a shower door creates a water tight environment with no leakage, which can be a life saver in the long haul (no one wants to deal with water damage.)

2. Easy maintenance

Glass shower doors may be more spendy initially, but take some time to reminisce on how long it takes for your shower curtain to get moldy. No matter how clean you may be, a moldy shower curtain inevitable after only a few months. Unless you want to continue to shower in mold, your constant replacement of the plastic lining will end up being less convenient than having shower doors which you can easily keep clean.

3. Healthier

Most shower curtains are made from PVC or Polyvinyl chloride, which has earned a great deal of suspicion due to it’s toxicity. The heat from your shower helps release these chemicals that can cause developmental, nervous, respiratory and reproductive damage. If that’s not reason enough, just revisit the major buildup of mold that happens on shower curtains, which is not only disgusting but unhealthy for your respiratory system. Shower doors simply don’t present any of these health threats.

The benefits of having shower doors clearly outweigh the potential costs that come along with a shower curtain over time. Are you still using shower curtains? Check out all of our different styles of shower doors and see what you’re missing out on.
