It is common that owners of smaller houses find it hard getting the required space for separate rooms for a shower enclosure and a bath. A combination of both in one room is the easier way out, and this has worked well for many households. The biggest question however, is whether to use a door or a curtain to enclose the shower. While the preference lays half way between the two, this article narrows down this discussion to the details of what both of these styles offer.
1. A softer surface
The waterproof and resistant materials that curtains come with are a good break from what may otherwise become too harsh on the bathroom’s texture. The idea of breaking off the hard tile-like texture that the walls already present with a softened and harmonious blend of fabric that runs from top to bottom is an invited appeal. The owner however should make sure that the fabric can be washed right in the house, at the sight of any mold or mildew on the fabric.
Curtains are known to instantly add a personal touch in terms of design and color in the bathroom. Even better, whenever you are tired of the curtain’s design, you can easily change it to another of your choice. For this to work well, you must do bold colors that will easily give a different feel of your bathroom whenever anyone steps in.
3. Dealing with curves
Whenever your shower or bath needs an enclosure with a curvy end, fitting in a rail at the top would prove easier when you are dealing with curtains. Whenever you have to work your way round a center-fitted bath, you will need to have a way to contain the water that would splash out of the bath. A curtain would fit perfectly well for such a setup, with a rail girded from the ceiling and surrounding the bath area.
Shower doors and glass fittings
1. Full enclosure
There is no way water will spill out of the shower area when a good fitting is done in the bathroom. It is a rather neater option than curtains and saves quite an amount of space whenever installed. Sliding shower doors are even better, as they need no hinges outwards or inwards. What’s more, they do not eat up into valuable bathroom space.
2. Use of tricky bathroom space
Have you ever walked into a house that fits a bathroom into an awkward space, probably right below the staircase or at the attic of the house? You will probably quickly recommend a sliding door and/or a screen that is customized to fit the area. They offer a neat option for such awkward spots. You may have to pay a little extra for the measurements and all, but the result will be astoundingly amazing.
3. Creates options for space
Besides looking the part, the fixed doors in any kind of bathroom, including a vintage would still work. In a modern era, where bathrooms are compact, having curtains would simply break up the space. Bathroom glass doors and fittings would be the best alternative. In addition, the glass fittings can be done on whichever side or whichever corner of a room, as long as there is space enough to fit a human body in the room.
You cannot compare its folding away with that of a curtain. The curtain folds away in a somewhat cumbersome gather, but with sliding doors, you will have a neat folding away whenever you are not using the shower or bath. This kind of neatness is a big plus for shower doors.
Everyone has their own preferences for enclosures, but the bigger percentage of customers today prefer these doors. What’s more, there are companies that do the bathroom fixtures in a flash if you do not desire the DIY options.
