The Pros and Cons of Frameless Shower Doors
Due to the economy, more homeowners are wanting to invest in their current home. In the past few years, we have seen an increase in popularity for frameless shower doors.
Frameless shower doors are typically custom. This allows the homeowner, inspiring architects and/or designers to be creative as possible with shapes and sizes. In addition, frameless shower doors offer a feeling of spaciousness for smaller bathrooms.
When observing the customization factor, the most important factor is 1) measuring and 2) installation. If the measurement or installation is incorrect, an entire new shower door will have to be ordered. If a professional shower door company is not installing or measuring the shower door, these mistakes can become extremely costly to homeowners. That is why it is important to go through reputable certified shower door companies as they have experience measuring and installing hundreds if not thousands of shower doors.
A con of frameless shower doors is that they are typically more expensive due to more high-end finishes and thicker glass requirements. Therefore, many homeowners have to evaluate what type of renovation they are desiring - a low end renovation or more of a high end renovation?
In the end, we have to evaluate: is the cost worth it? In our eyes, yes. If you are wanting more of a high-end feature in your bathroom, a frameless shower door that is installed and measured by a professional is the way to go. Not only is it great for the current homeowner, but it is also great for resale. According to the NKBA Kitchen & Bath Assocation Report from 2015 "People are removing tubs and increasing the size of the showers." Due to this, customization is needed.
