Investing in a glass shower screen will be more expensive than just buying a shower curtain, but that investment can be a great choice for any bathroom. Glass shower screens offer some distinct advantages over shower curtains, so that you can be happy with that investment for years to come. Note a few of those advantages here, so you can determine the best choice for your home's bathroom.
Shower curtain liners hold mildew, hard water stains, and other unsightly marks. They can be very difficult to clean; you may need to spray them down with bothersome bleach, or actually take them down and put them in the washing machine. Glass shower screens only need a squeegee to wipe them down and they won't hold that unsightly and unhealthy mould and mildew, and don't need bleach or other irritating cleaning chemicals to get them looking fresh and new.
If you have balance issues, a shower curtain will do little to keep you safe, and could even become a safety hazard if you should trip over it, or if it should get in your way while trying to step into the shower. The edge of a thick shower screen can be held for added balance when you step into the tub, and it won't simply fall out of the way if you should grab onto it while in the shower or tub. Some even have safety railings installed, for added balance.
Light and space
If your bathroom has a window in the shower area, this will do little to light up the bathroom if you have the shower curtain closed in front of it! Shower curtains can also cut off small bathrooms, making them look even more dark, closed-in, and crowded. A shower screen allows that light from the window to pass through the bathroom, keeping the space bright and open, and a glass screen won't make the bathroom seem any smaller or darker.
A glass shower screen can work in a modern bathroom, in one with a traditional style, and in a bathroom that doesn't seem to have any particular style at all. You can change the linens, paint colour, tile, and all your accessories in the bathroom without worrying about how the shower screen will fit with that new style. You also don't need to worry about the screen beginning to look old, dingy, and outdate over time, as often happens with shower curtains. Once the screen is installed, you may never need to worry about a new shower enclosure covering again.
