Should You Have A Shower Without A Door?
Doorless Showers, also known as open showers or showers without doors have been trending lately. There are many reasons why customers would opt for a shower without a door. Some people simply do not want the hassle of cleaning a shower door, whereas others prefer the open look. Or they might feel that an open shower door may be more suitable for the elderly and people with disabilities.
The Cons Of Open/Doorless Showers
The lack of a shower door may pose a potential danger of slipping on water as shower doors prevent water from spilling out onto the floor. Furthermore, an open shower door will let the steam out causing mold and creating a cold environment for showering. If taking a cold shower isn’t deterring enough, you will have to compensate by turning your water to a hotter temperature, which increases your utility bills.
The Doorless Shower Substitute | Low-Maintenance Frameless Shower Doors
Although the open shower door is attractive due to its low maintenance, there are shower doors that require less maintenance and cleaning such as the frameless shower door. Since the frameless shower door does not have a frame, there are no places for dirt, debris or mold to collect. In addition, the frameless shower door is made out of tempered glass, which is four times stronger than standard glass.
The frameless shower door combined with Clearshield, a glass shower protector, will keep your shower door looking like new without the elbow grease. You can customize your frameless shower door to be a half-glass panel that offers the same modern open look of doorless showers while preventing water from getting out of the shower stall.
