Why Choose a Bi Fold Shower Door
There are many different types of shower installations. For those living in homes or apartments where bathroom space is a premium, they often turn to shower curtains or bi fold shower doors. A bi fold shower door offers the convenience of being built-in without opening fully outward and taking up more room. This feature is not offered with a shower curtain or swing out door.
Shower doors are important for protecting privacy, but they also prevent bathroom floors from becoming soaked. Most doors come with a water tight seal. The importance of that seal is not often considered, but statistics show that many dangerous accidents at home occur in the bathroom. Slipping and falling can be fatal sometimes. Keeping the floor from becoming too slick with water helps to prevent such accidents.
A bi fold shower door can be purchased with different types of glass, including frosted so others entering a bathroom are not allowed full view of the person showering. They are simple enough to clean as they do not have to be removed to do so. As long as you routinely clean your shower door, it is possible to prevent soap build up.
Homeowners with a bathroom that only has a toilet and sink may add a small shower with a bi fold door. It can be used for when guests visit, offering them their own personal shower. This prevents the awkwardness that comes when a whole household is sharing a shower or bath. These types of shower doors are also inexpensive. Shower doors can get expensive, but it’s possible to find an affordable one for less than the cost a set of nice bath towels. However, they are not always cheap. In some cases, a luxuriant spa bathroom will have a first-rate large soaking tub with a separate shower stall in the corner. Because of space constraints, the shower is decorated with an ornate bi fold shower door as a means of melding the bath space together.
