Three Considerations To Keep In Mind When Replacing Your Shower Stall

After many years of living inside your home, you might start to notice signs of wear and tear on your shower stall. Making the decision to replace the shower is easy, but it’s important to keep some considerations in mind so that you don’t spend too much money or pay for something that might not benefit your family. Keep the following information in mind so that you can have a new shower that suits the space and your needs.

Think About Glass Doors

Your initial thought might be to recreate the shower stall that is already in your bathroom. However, since you plan to replace the stall, it’s a good idea to think about how different designs could be better for the family. A stall with glass doors might work best.

Glass doors can open up a small bathroom because you’ll be able to see more of the space. Not only that, but glass can be easier than plastic shower curtains when it’s time to clean up.

Doors made of glass can also save you money in a number of ways. For instance, you don’t have to worry about water damage to the floor or subspace when you use glass; plastic shower curtains are more likely to result in leaks and accidental exposure to water than can mean trouble for the bathroom floor. In addition, when you’ve got glass doors you won’t be spending money on new plastic curtains throughout the year.

If you do opt for glass doors, you might want to stay from frosted glass. Frosted glass may seem beautiful, but the frost finish hide soap buildup and scum, making it tricker to clean the doors effectively. Not only that, but depending on the size of your bathroom, the space might seem much smaller compared to clear glass doors.

Consider a Walk-In Tub

If your shower stall has a tub at the bottom of it, as many do, you might also choose to refinish or replace the tub so that it will match the rest of the stall. One important thing to think about is whether any of the people in your family are reaching their senior years or have difficulty walking. If so, a walk-in tub may make some sense.

A walk-in tub can reduce the risks for trips and falls, which can be very important for those getting on in years. Almost a third of senior citizens fall each year, and having a tub that they don’t have to lift their feet over can help decrease the chances for that in your home. Those who already have walking difficulties can have an easier time with a walk-in tub.

Consider The Entire Space

In order for your new shower stall to look right in the bathroom, be sure to consider the rest of the room when making design decisions. For instance, if the knobs and vanity all have a modern look, a shower stall outfitted with vinyl or tiny ceramic tiles may not fit in. Consider the entire room so that the stall works well with the rest of the space.

With all the information laid out above, you should be able to make smarter decisions about what you’d like your new shower to look like. Talk with a local contractor to learn more about how shower stall replacement project might
