What Is Better, a Shower Door or Curtain?

Are you remodeling your bathroom or building a new home? Perhaps you’re trying to decide between a shower door and curtain. Which one is better?

The answer largely depends on your personal preferences and also whether you have a shower stall or shower/tub combination.

A Shower Curtain vs. Shower Door

What Is In Your Bathroom?

Do you have a shower stall or a shower/bathtub combination? A shower door is typically installed for a stall, but a combination works with both a door and a curtain. It really depends on your aesthetic preferences and priorities.

Advantages of Shower Doors

  • Aesthetics
  • Ability to make a room appear more spacious

Although shower doors cost more than shower curtains, their aesthetic appeal is much greater. A shower door—particularly a frameless one—can add unique beauty and elegance to any space. Doors make more sense for a high-end, elegant bathroom, where a curtain wouldn’t fit in as well.

They can also help a room look more spacious, which is ideal in small bathrooms.

Advantages of Shower Curtains

  • Cost
  • Privacy

Shower curtains are cheaper and are ideal if you want a shower or tub enclosure that is private. When it comes to cleaning, some people prefer a shower curtain, as you can just throw it in the washer. Both curtains and doors can develop mold and mildew and need to be cleaned on a regular basis to look good.
