Shower Enclosures or Shower Curtains: Which is Best?

If you have decided to remodel your bathroom but you aren’t sure if you want to stay with your current shower curtain or if you want to look at shower enclosures instead, then you will need to consider a few things. The first thing you will need to think about is the fact that a shower curtain is much easier to maintain.

Of course, you will have to be physically able to step over the edge of the bathtub to get in and out of the shower. You can get just about any style or color you might need to match your décor as well.

Shower curtains are extremely easy to replace and you can purchase one in just about any store, which makes them cheaper than replacing an enclosure if you need to. Of course, the enclosure will cost you a bit of money over a simple shower curtain, but there is a bit of elegance that is associated with an enclosure that you can’t get out of a curtain. When you decide to build shower enclosures you are going to have to make many decisions on the materials as well.
Shower curtains hang from a curtain rod and usually have some kind of clip to hang them with.

Shower enclosures will need to be tiled in and have the glass panels installed in order to make it an enclosure. There are different styles of doors that you can choose from as well and that could end up being the deciding factor on whether you stay with a curtain or not. You will also need to look at some of the disadvantages of having a shower curtain or an enclosure so that you have all the necessary information and knowledge in making your decision.

Shower curtains are known to be a breeding ground for mildew and mold whereas enclosures make it much harder for those to grow in your shower. You should keep this in mind when you make your decision as that is a family health issue that needs to be taken seriously. Enclosures are easier to keep clean and there are automatic spray cleaners that you can utilize to help keep your shower sparkling clean and free from mildew build up.
