If your bathroom is on the radar this summer for an update, you may be wondering where to begin. If you have a walk-in shower door that needs replacing, it’s usually fairly obvious. It’s also the best place to begin on a bathroom renovation. This is because your shower is often a focal point in the bathroom. Giving it special attention can change the look and feel of the whole bathroom. You may even realize that you don’t need to change many other things in the bathroom to get the clean, updated feel you’re looking for. Here are some top reasons you might need to replace your walk-in shower door.


There’s Noticeable Wear and Tear

There are a couple of common problems if you have a framed shower door. The metal may be breaking or coming apart from the glass. These cracks and separations leave your door susceptible to harboring microorganisms. It’s also at risk for further damage. If you have a door that’s seen better days, it’s no question that a shower door replacement should be one of your top priorities in a bathroom remodel.


You Have Hard Water Stains

Even if your door is in good mechanical condition, there may be other issues. A common problem in Utah is hard water buildup. If you don’t have a water softener, your glass shower doors probably have some hard water stains. Over time, this leads to a very unsightly shower door. So if you have a hard time seeing out of your glass shower door, it’s probably time to think about replacing it.


It’s Outdated

If you’re lucky enough to not have the above issues, you might just be in need of a change. Older homes are notorious for their questionable bathroom decor choices. If you’ve already replaced the plush bathroom carpet and pink toilet, upgrading to a more modern walk-in shower door might be in your future. If you’re looking for a complete overhaul, you might want to consider upgrading to a glass shower enclosure. This will give you the most modern look while also making your bathroom feel big and airy.
