Custom Shower Doors Vs. Shower Curtains
Combined shower-baths are great for smaller spaces (or budgets) especially if you interested in both a shower enclosure and bath. However, you are then placed with the dilemma between a shower curtain or glass shower doors to enclose it. While some may gravitate toward the softer look of waterproof fabric that can be changed as often as your heart desires, others are partial to the simplicity and efficiency of a sheer glass pane. To help point you in the right direction, Coastal Closets & Showers has compiled five benefits each of glass doors and shower curtains.
1. Soften The Surfaces
A perfectly chosen piece of fabric (waterproofed or backed with a water-resistant liner) can alter the overall appearance of any bathroom. Some bathrooms teeter on the edge of either being too harsh or too sterile. A delicate design can help upgrade any shower space. This classic look with a perfected blend of marble, tiles or lightly colored paint is a much softer look for any bathroom. Thanks to the floor-length shower curtain running the length of the bath, any space can be softened to create a simple look that can be changed at will. Make sure your chosen curtain – or at least the outer fabric section – can be washed at home to prevent mildew or unsightly staining.
2. Add Personality
With shower curtains, you can be bold with color in the bathroom. Don’t feel that you have to keep the basic all white look to keep the fresh feel. You can add pops of yellow, brave accents of lightly colored blue, which glow against a dotted shower curtain in neutral tones.
3. Rev Up A Roll-Top
Roll-top baths with a shower fitted above can be notoriously difficult to pull off — particularly when it comes to dealing with water spills and splashes. Glass panels are generally a no-no where curves and awkwardly shaped tubs are concerned, unless you go for something custom, so your best bet is to install a robust ceiling-mounted rail and finish with a heavy-duty, waterproof shower curtain that can be swept all the way around the inside the tub.
If you are looking for options for your awkwardly shaped shower space and think that shower curtains are your only option, ask Coastal Closets & Showers about your custom shower doors options before running to the basic shower curtain.
4. Make It Pretty
5. Make It Modern
Shower curtains unless properly chosen can be a thumbs down to the modern look. Many customers of Coastal Closets & Showers express the difficulty of upgrading their bathroom to a more modern look with the classic style of shower curtains. That is why many of our clients have made the switch to custom shower doors. If you can find a sheer shower curtain with a hint of shimmer and a textured graphic brown, you can maintain a basic modern look with a bit of texture.
Custom Shower Doors
1. Go For A Full Enclosure
2. Utilize Tricky Spaces
A bath can be fit into any unused space or nook, but how do you deal with a sloping ceiling if you really love a shower too?
Your best bet for this dilemma is a custom shower door from Coastal Closets & Showers. We can accommodate tricky spaces and angles as well as nonstandard heights. We create custom cut shower doors for your space for a splash-proof solution which of course for shower lovers is worth its weight in gold.
3. Expand Your Space
A fixed panel of frameless glass fits any style of bathroom from all white, compact scheme, and fuss free lines where curtains just cannot compete. This is the best option if your bathroom is compact. Curtains and glass fittings minimize and break up the space and appear to actually shrink the room.
4. Keep It Simple
Coastal Closets & Showers uses glass with a special coating so that dirt and limescale will not accumulate and make it easy to clean. Our shower doors will save you a lot of elbow grease.
5. Fold It Away
