Ready For A Whole New Look? How To Choose The Right Shower Enclosure For Your Bathroom

by Rasmus Koskinen

If you're in the market for a new shower enclosure, you have a lot of decisions to make. Today's shower enclosures provide options that you might not have thought about. One of the benefits of installing a new shower enclosure is that you can change the appearance of your bathroom without investing in an entirely new remodeling project. Here are four things to consider when choosing a new shower enclosure for your bathroom. 

Choose the Right Glass

When it comes to choosing a shower enclosure for your bathroom, the first thing you need to do is decide on the type of glass that you want. If you want to enjoy a wide open view throughout your bathroom and utilize the natural light, you'll want to choose a clear glass enclosure. However, if you're looking to gain more use out of your shower enclosure, choose mirrored glass. A mirrored glass shower enclosure will allow you to use your enclosure as a full-length mirror right in your bathroom.

Don't Forget the Accessories

If you're going to invest in a new shower enclosure, don't forget to include the accessories. The right shower enclosure will take your shower beyond basic. If you're not sure what type of accessories to include, consider a bench or additional shower trays. The additional shower trays are beneficial for holding a wider assortment of bath and hygiene supplies. An added shower bench will make shaving your legs or showering with your toddler much easier. 

Make Use of Your Available Space

If you need a new shower enclosure but you want to do something new with your bathroom, make use of the available space. Your shower doesn't need to fit neatly into an existing corner of the bathroom. In fact, if you have a garden tub that you're no longer using, you can use that space to create a spacious walk-in shower. 

Consider Your Future Mobility Needs

If you plan to remain in your home throughout your retirement years, or you have current mobility issues that you need to adjust to, consider those mobility needs when choosing your shower enclosure. Shower enclosures don't need to have those bulky frames. In fact, many shower enclosures now come without the added frame, which makes mobility needs easier to adjust to. 

Don't sell yourself short. If you're planning a new shower enclosure for your bathroom, use the tips provided here to get the most benefits out of your investment.
