What are the Benefits of Installing Sliding Glass Shower Doors on Your Bathtub

Are you still using shower curtains? Not only do they easily become unattractive, but they also create an unwanted visual barrier that prevents light from entering your bathing/showering space.

So, it’s time to consider installing shower glass doors to enhance the overall appearance of your bathroom.

Many clients ask us about the best type of glass door to install on their bathtub. There is no such thing as a ‘best’ option or ‘correct’ bathtub glass panel. Indeed, the answer will vary depending upon the space available, the decor, the customer’s style, etc.

However, if you are looking for a bathtub glass door solution that is both functional and beautiful, consider installing sliding glass shower doors. You can visit the Shower Lagoon showroom to find some of the best sliding bathtub glass doors in the Toronto area.

First, let’s discuss why sliding glass doors are a great design choice for your bathtub.

Why You Should Consider Sliding Glass Bathtub Doors

We have been serving the GTA for the last two decades, where we have served numerous clients with different needs. Dealing with so many people means we have extensive knowledge and experience to understand which glass door option is best for your circumstances.

For example, we recently worked with a client who had a small traditional bathroom with a bathtub. She told us the house was built in the early 1900s and asked for a remodel. Although space was tight, with custom bathtub glass panels and a few modifications, we gave her a beautifully renovated bathroom that felt bigger and airier than it used to be.

If you are reading this, you are also likely thinking of adding a sliding glass door to your bathtub. Keep reading to better understand how you can benefit from installing a sliding bathtub glass door. 

  1. A Great Space Saver: The best part about sliding doors is they are great space savers. So, even if you have a small bathroom with a tiny bathtub, sliding glass doors can perfectly fit into the space.Instead of swinging out into the bathroom like hinge or pivot doors, they slide along the tub’s edge, making them ideal for smaller bathrooms. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about having enough space to accommodate a swinging door. They are also easy to maneuver and can make getting in and out of the bathtub an easier process. 
  2. A Design Upgrade: Shower curtains are not only unattractive but can be unhygienic, as they are prone to mould and mildew growth. A sliding glass bathtub door can give your bathroom decor a big upgrade as they give your tub a clean, modern, and uncluttered look.And while it may not be possible to go to a spa every day, choosing sliding glass doors from Shower Lagoon can recreate a spa-like feel in your bathroom. Coordinate the colour of your tiles to match the rest of the room’s decor and use softer light to maintain the spa-like aesthetic. 
  3. A Functional Upgrade: When you use a sliding door on your bathtub, it creates a solid barrier that helps contain the water within the shower and tub area. You can also add privacy to the tub by using frosted glass. It also helps allow more light into an area that would otherwise be blocked by your shower curtain. 
  4. A Versatile Glass Door Option: We take pride in employing some of the Toronto area’s leading glass door experts. We have a huge collection of sliding shower doors for bathtubs. Some of our sliding glass door types include:
    • Single tub door panels
    • Double sliding shower doors
    • Framed/frameless/semi-frameless sliding shower doors for a tub
    • Metro sliding shower doors
    • Bypass sliding doors

    You can also custom order a door according to your bathtub measurements and the type of enclosure you envision. 

  5. An Affordable Bathroom Update: If you are looking for a bathroom upgrade on a budget, bathtub sliding glass doors are an excellent one to consider. Instead of remodelling the entire bathroom, you can just add these to achieve a sleek, sophisticated look. You would be surprised at what a difference getting rid of an old shower curtain can make.
