Bathroom ideas revolution: Shower Curtains Vs. Shower doors
Recently, I have always received some consultations:
Q: What’s the advantages of the shower curtains and the shower doors?
Q: Do shower doors look more elegant for modern life?
People judge about those opinions all the time, and for real, I am tired of handling with those problems.
It seems that the bathroom ideas revolutions have already come. But, is that real?
Before making a decision, you need to consider different types of issues.
When we decorate the bathroom, we all know that it is a crucial decoration area for home decoration, and the bathroom decoration not only needs to be waterproof but also needs to design and plan the various equipment of the bathroom. Many people will do dry and wet separation in the toilet; then at this time, you have to decide which one to choose. Many people have not determined the right one. The decoration master said that the bathroom decoration needs to consider the difference between dry and wet so that the owner will not regret it. Let's take a look at how the master analyzes it:
Analyze the areas of your bathroom.
First of all, we need to observe the approximate size of the bathroom and the family situation to make a decision. If the bathroom is small, your children can not take a bath alone, which means you have to bathe the child, so the shower doors can be ruled out unless you are at home.
The bathroom with shower door is more massive than the shower curtain one. The size of the ample shower room is 1m * 1m, that means you and your child can stand down, but the child is short, when you are kneeling, it is not easy.
At this time, what is needed is a combination of shower curtain + water barrier. The advantage of the shower curtain is that it is soft and won't bother your behaviors.
Think about your budget.
People say money talks, and we sure understand about that. That's true that glass shower doors can bring a whole bathroom with elegant, fashion and gorgeous designs. But have you ever thought about the budget? The average cost of frameless shower doors is $1000.What does it mean, you can buy almost 50 shower curtains. You can even switch your shower curtain every week.
