7 Reasons to Choose a Shower Curtain over a Shower Door – Part 2
In part 1 of this series I gave shower doors the spotlight – now it’s time to pay respect to the advantages of shower curtains over the shower doors with the 7 reasons to choose curtains below.
You be the judge – what is better shower curtains or doors?
7 Reasons to Choose a Shower Curtain over a Door
Reason 1 – Increased privacy– The reality is many people share the bathroom with other family members (anyone who has ever had a kid barge into their bathroom unannounced knows what I’m talking about here!) and the privacy of the shower curtains can certainly be a benefit.
Reason 2 – Lower cost – Shower doors can really get expensive. If you’re on a tight budget you can buy many sets of shower curtains before you’ll equal the cost of a semi-frameless or completely frameless shower door.
Reason 3 – Easy DIY Installation – Whether you’re using a tension rod or more permanent curved or straight shower rod – the curtains area an easy DIY project (shower door installations require much more skill).
Reason 4 – Design flexibility – Whether you’re decorating style is Victorian, Country, Arts and Crafts, Rustic (or virtually any design type) you’ll be able to find a curtain to match your vision.
Reason 5 – Flexible rods for pedestal or clawfoot tub/shower combinations – If you’ve got a pedestal or clawfoot tub with a shower head, a curved shower curtain system is basically the only way to go.
Reason 6 – Cost effectively increase space – Use a curved shower rod to cheaply open up your tub/shower combination for more space.
Reason 7 – Access to entire shower area – If you have a family member with mobility challenges who needs the assistance of a walker or wheelchair, a shower curtain will often be the answer to achieve an accessible design.
