Bathtubs may let you enjoy soaking in the water for a long time, but they can eat up a lot of space in the bathroom. They also require more cleaning time. Getting a shower enclosure or cubicle is one way to resolve this. However, if you prefer to make use of your existing shower area and find a way to separate it from the rest of the bathroom, having glass panels installed is one way to do this. This will serve as your walk in area for the shower. If you are considering this option for your bathroom, here are some reasons why you should push through with it.
Bathtubs are big so they use more space in the bathroom. This may not be a good option for small areas. While shower pods save more space than a bathtub, they can still look bulky because of their platforms, enclosures, and trays. Glass panels give more space as they serve as dividers between the shower area and the remaining part of the bathroom. Since they are made from glass, they will not hinder the view so you will still see the entire area, adding to that spacious feel.
Convenient to use
The glass panels of a walk in shower are what enclose the shower area. Since it doesn’t have any door, it is convenient to get in the shower area. This is a good option for homes with pregnant women, elderly people, and individuals with a disability as they can easily access the walk in shower.
Adding panel enclosures to your shower area is a simple but effective way of making your bathroom look more luxurious. This will not only add to the kerb appeal of your home, but it will also increase its value. This is great news if you are planning on selling your house in the future.
Cleaning the glass panels of the walk in shower is not as complicated as cleaning a full shower enclosure with frames and doors. Since the latter is not made of full glass, you have to take the other parts, which are not made from glass, into consideration when cleaning.
Since these panels do not have various parts, unlike typical shower enclosures, they are also not prone to damage. Just make sure that you pick the panels that are thick enough so they do not easily break.
Whether you are having a new bathroom built or your existing one is undergoing a makeover, using glass panels to enclose the shower area is a good option to consider.
