3 Reasons To Choose A Glass Shower With No Door

by Rasmus Koskinen

Glass showers that have doors are very popular these days, and they have been a popular choice in homes for years now. A little less common is the glass shower that does not actually have a door. Instead, a glass wall is installed, and the shower is set up in a way that you can adjust the temperature and get in and out of the shower without actually using a door or getting your floor wet. These are some of the things that you might like about having this type of shower instead of a more traditional glass shower with a door.

1. Make Cleaning Even Easier

If you have to choose between having a glass shower door and a shower curtain, you're probably going to want to choose a glass shower door if you are interested in having a bathroom that is easier to clean. If you've ever lived in a home that had a shower curtain in the bathroom, you probably know just how gross they can get and just how hard they can be to clean.

A glass shower door is easier to clean than a shower curtain, but there are still some nooks and crannies in the door assembly that you have to worry about cleaning so that they don't get grimy. A glass shower that doesn't have a door doesn't have these extra things to clean, though, so you can just wipe down the inside and outside of the shower glass without worrying about door parts to clean.

2. Help Prevent Mold and Mildew from Growing in the Shower

Mold and mildew can still grow in showers with glass shower doors, even though the mold and mildew might be easier to clean than if it were growing on a shower curtain. With a shower wall, the moisture and heat aren't trapped in the shower, though, so there's better ventilation. This helps make conditions less appealing for mold and mildew to grow.

3. Get in and Out More Easily

Lastly, having a glass shower with a shower wall instead of a door makes it easier for you to get in and out of the shower. If you have mobility issues or are a person of size, for example, you might have trouble getting in and out of a traditional shower. A glass shower without a door might be wider for you to step in and out of, making your shower more accessible
