Do Shower Doors Add Value to a Home?

Glass shower door

You don't need to spend a lot of money on building extensions or refurbishing your home to increase property value. You can opt for simpler ways, such as a bathroom remodel, to add more value to your home and sell it more quickly.

Make sure you upgrade your shower enclosures by installing glass shower doors as they enhance a bathroom's utility and appearance. Most buyers now look for bathrooms with glass shower enclosures rather than shower enclosures with curtains and traditional tubs. This guide will further emphasize how adding shower doors to your bathrooms can increase your home's value.

Benefits of Shower Doors

A shower door is built according to the dimensions of your shower space. This simple upgrade will only take a day to complete, and its benefits will last for years. A shower door improves your home's value by making your bathroom space look bigger and more attractive.

Bathrooms featuring stylish fixtures are always more appealing to home buyers. Moreover, investing in quality glass for your shower door will ensure that the fixture stays functional for years.

A larger bathroom attracts more buyers, so this upgrade is especially useful for small, cramped bathrooms.

Glass Shower Doors – The New Trend

According to the top real estate agents and remodelers, homeowners are now replacing their regular bathtubs with shower spaces enclosed in glass doors. Many interior designers recommend that homeowners opt for glass shower doors for better functionality and aesthetic appeal.

If you're planning a bathroom remodeling project before selling your home, get in touch with experienced glass professionals to choose the best product for the available bathroom space.

Shower Frame

If you want a shower door installed in your bathroom, the glass contractor will first determine whether you should choose a heavy glass door or a framed shower enclosure. Framed shower doors are made from thinner glass panels which are less expensive but attractive.

When choosing a framed shower door, homeowners can choose from a variety of handles and hinges. Moreover, it depends on whether they want a swinging shower door or a sliding one. A glass expert can walk you through the installation process to help you understand the overall design and appearance.

Heavy Glass Shower Doors

Heavy glass shower doors are customized according to your bathroom layout and design and feature minimal framing. All edges of these doors are exposed and the glass used is highly polished. They're a popular choice among homeowners because of their high-quality finish and aesthetic appeal.

Moreover, this type of shower door offers protection from lime deposits and minerals that are present in water. The glass is coated with a permanent protection layer during the tempering process. Though these doors are designed to last for years, a proper maintenance routine must be followed. Make sure you clean the glass before the water dries to prevent water marks.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Glass Shower Doors

If you choose heavy glass shower doors, they need to be secured to something such as wood. If they're reinforced into drywall material, their weight will pull them away from the wall. But if the wood is not an option, choose a framed enclosure to position heavy glass shower doors.

It's important to examine where you want to install the shower door and ensure it doesn't get in the way of the water flow. Direct contact with hot and cold water will eventually cause the glass to chip or crack and shatter. Whether you're installing hinged or pivot doors, make sure you leave enough room for the door to open and close properly. On the other hand, sliding doors can be installed in all kinds of bathroom spaces.

Moreover, the sill should be sloped back toward the shower drain to prevent leaks. Shower doors can be complex and intricate or simple and elegant. If you want to explore the available options, reach out to us at Shower Doors of Austin.
