When you’re updating your bathroom, don’t just focus on looks. Making your bathroom beautiful is important but making sure it is functional and solving your everyday problems is essential. Glass shower splash guards kill two birds with one stone by being both modern, streamlined, and beautiful while also being functional and solving common problems of shower curtains and framed tub and shower enclosures. The difference between a glass shower enclosure and a glass shower splash guard is that you would more commonly use a splash guard when you have both a shower and a tub in one. Because it is just a fixed glass shower panel, you can customize splash guards to fit any space and any size bathroom. With framed shower enclosures, it’s much harder to include a tub and customization is not always possible. Here are some of the benefits of installing a glass shower shield, or splash guard:
There’s no doubt that adding a glass shower splash guard to your bathroom will add style and value to your home. The clean, modern look that splash guards portray makes any room feel instantly updated. Since they are transparent, shower shields also make your small bathroom look larger, brighter, and more open.
Because you only need one piece of glass for a shower shield, it is automatically much more affordable than an entire framed enclosure or several pieces of glass would be. Shower shield costs vary depending on the size, shape, style, design, glass thickness, hardware, and more. But in general, it’s an affordable way to update your bathroom.
Ease of cleaning and fewer maintenance requirements are two of the biggest reasons why people choose glass shower shields. There are several ways to clean a glass shower door, but one of the easiest is to squeegee the glass after every shower and then occasionally spray it with glass cleaner and wipe it off. With frameless shower shields, you don’t have to worry about mold or mildew gathering like it might in a framed enclosure, and you don’t have to worry about stained and smelly shower curtains.
Glass splash guards are a wonderful option because they can fit in any space. They’re easy to install, look great, and are completely customizable from glass thickness to hardware finish. You decide if you only want your splash guard to keep water off the rest of the bathroom, or if you want to make it a little longer and add a design to it.
Glass shower shields save you money because they last forever. Rather than having to worry about washing or switching out your shower curtain, you’ll have an easy to clean glass panel that won’t deteriorate over time. Even if you don’t plan on staying in your home forever, you should have a glass shower shield installed because it will increase the value of your home making it easier to sell or ask for a higher price.
Shower panels are a safer option for people of all ages. Whether you have young kids, are an adult or have a senior in your home, installing a handle or bar to your glass shower panel adds safety when standing in a slippery area. Rather than risk the chances of you or a loved one getting hurt, it’s best to stay on the safe side and invest in a glass splash guard with a handle that everyone can hold onto.
With Giant Glass & Mirror, you can customize your shower guard easily. Our experienced and talented team of experts can help you come up with a design that matches your style and then suggest the best glass products for it. Since we know that safety and quality are important to you, we recommend either ½” or 3/8” thickness for your glass. All of our glass is tempered, meaning it’s been through a heating and cooling process that strengthens it and makes it safer. If you’re not sure what kind of design you want, we can suggest several options. Clear, frosted, or custom patterns are available when deciding how you want your glass shower guard to look. When choosing the size of your glass, consider things like how you will reach the tub knobs and turn the shower on, and how much steam you want to escape the shower area. You’ll want your shower to be easily accessible without having to get wet every time you turn it on. Whatever you decide to do, we will support you and guide you the entire way.
