While the bathroom can be used for answering the call of nature or personal grooming, its primary use is for bathing. This is why the two most important areas in your bathroom are the bathtub and the shower area. However, most people want to keep these areas isolated from the rest of the bathroom. This is to keep everything else from getting wet. After all, you don’t want to slip and hit your head while brushing your teeth. The best way to keep water inside the shower area is by using a shower door. If you are planning on having a little bathroom remodeling done, then you should definitely install a new shower door if you don’t have one already.
Many homeowners settle with using shower curtains but this can do little to keep water from getting out of the shower area. In addition to this, they are easy to damage and you may need to replace them often. A shower door is a more durable and permanent alternative. When it comes to shower doors, they usually come in three flavours, the bi-fold door, the swinging door and the sliding shower door.
Bi-fold doors can be folded out of the way when you want to get in or out of your shower. Because of this, they are recommended by bathroom remodeling contractors for narrow bathrooms.
Swinging doors operate in a manner identical to the other doors in your house. The downside is they end up taking a lot of space since you have to consider that space required to swing the door open.
Lastly, sliding doors are doors that slide on rails to allow you to get in or out of the shower. This is by far the most common of the three types.
If you are unsure which type of door will work best for your bathroom, consult with a reputable bathroom remodeling company today.
