One of the most common home renovation projects is re-doing a bathroom. However, a full remodel of any bathroom can be extremely expensive. That is why many homeowners do one part at a time. For instance, you might replace your cabinets, or replace the floors, or update your shower at one point and handle another project years later. One of the most common projects to do in this piece-by-piece methodology is replacing a shower curtain with a glass shower door. Here are a few reasons why you should replace your curtain with a beautiful glass installation.

Before we get into all of the aesthetic reasons to switch out a curtain for a glass shower door we wanted to open with some of the functional reasons to ditch that curtain. The chief reason you might want to get rid of a curtain is that it can grow moldy and get covered in mildew over time. Glass doors are much easier to clean and maintain compared to curtains. Plus, when a glass door that seals is an effective way to protect your floors from water damage.
Getting Rid of PVC
Many homeowners try to limit the number of PVC products in their homes. PVC or polyvinyl chloride is commonly found in plastics and can be harmful. Even if you plan to replace your curtain with a new curtain, it might be beneficial to find a curtain that does not contain PVC. Luckily, more and more manufacturers have been phasing PVC out of their products because of the health risks.
Improve The Design Of Your Bathroom
Of course, one of the greatest reasons to get a new shower door for your bathroom is for the design. Shower doors come in many varieties and can greatly highlight the design of your bathroom.

Additionally, they can help accent the shower fixtures and how they match the other fixtures in the bathroom.
