Are Shower Doors or Curtains Better?

December 7, 2020 | Blog

When renovating your shower, there are many enclosure options to choose from. Whether you are saving space with a combined shower-bath or have room for an enclosed shower and bath, there is a wide number of remodeling options that are efficient and look great. If you are trying to decide between a shower door or shower curtain, we will point you in the right direction with the many benefits of each option.

Shower Doors


A shower door fully encloses your bath and shower. When choosing a door, you will not have to worry about water leaking out into your bathroom. A sliding glass door is a great option for a shower-tub combination to make sure your bath water stays inside of your bath.

Entry Style

Shower doors give you the option to choose your style of entry. Instead of a shower curtain with only one entry, glass enclosures come in many different styles, such as a sliding door. You can choose from a sliding, hinged or folding glass door, which can open up space in your bathroom and make the area more accessible.


Glass shower doors add simplicity to your bathroom space. When decorating your bathroom, a glass door will go well with any design that you choose. You will not have to worry about a shower curtain design getting in the way of your ideal bathroom decor.


Choosing a shower door instead of a curtain will enlarge your bathroom space. Curtains take up space and make your bathroom appear smaller. A door is a great option, especially when working with a small bathroom space. Since there are many door options to choose from, you can find one to expand the area in your bathroom and make the space more efficient.

Shower Curtains


Shower curtains add comfort to your bathroom space. They soften the surface and help you achieve the desired look of your bathroom. There are many different options to choose from that work well with all bathroom styles.


A shower curtain can instantly add personality to your bathroom. There are thousands of options to choose from, whether you are looking to make your bathroom aesthetic clean and simple with a white floor-length curtain or add some spunk with animal print. Curtains are an inexpensive option to change the look of your bathroom area quickly.


Adding a shower curtain to your bathtub can transform it into a shower also. Adding a showerhead and a curtain is a great way to combine both on a budget. This option looks very sleek and can save room when working with a small bathroom area.


If you have children, a shower curtain is a great, kid-friendly option to choose from. Not only can your child choose a cool shower curtain design of their favorite characters or animal, but they are easy to use. With a curtain, you do not have to worry about having your child squeegee the glass shower door to keep it clean.


When choosing between a shower door or a shower curtain there are many factors that come into play. Bathroom remodeling has options that will be right for you and your budget.
