If you are considering remodeling your bathroom, you owe it to yourself to investigate the benefits of frameless shower enclosures. When properly designed and installed by glass specialists, they can add significant value to your home, and make the time you spend there that much more enjoyable.
While you may not think about it much, the average American spends a lot of time in the bathroom. If you are like most people, you will average at least a nine-minute shower most days. That adds up to nearly 200 days of your life spent in your shower. Add in the time spent shaving, drying off, applying makeup and other daily routines, and the total time spent in the bathroom can exceed 800 days out of your life.
Upgrade your Bathrooms with Frameless Shower Enclosures
For a room that gets so much of our time, it only makes sense to add features that add beauty and are easy to use and maintain. For bathrooms of all shapes and sizes, frameless shower enclosures add an elegant touch that highlights rather than obscures expensive custom details.
The Trouble with Shower Curtains
While there are many beautiful examples of shower curtains available, most of them suffer from the same problems. All but the most translucent of plastic shower curtains block a considerable amount of light from the surfaces in your shower. This can make it more difficult to see in the already steamy environment, especially for those of us who take off our glasses to shower or have other vision problems.
In addition, the less light that reaches the nooks and crannies of your shower, the more likely it is that mold and mildew can get a foothold. Fabric shower curtains made of cotton, linen or other natural materials can harbor mold and mildew as well, spreading spores each time you open them. Some of the worst cases are found behind dark, opaque shower curtains. Mold and mildew cannot grow in bright environments, so letting in the greatest amount of light possible can be your best defense at keeping these invaders at bay.
