About Sliding Tub Doors
Using curtains to cover your bathtub shower can sometimes be a hassle. For one they can develop mildew if you forget to slide them closed. Not to mention you can end up with a lot of water on your bathroom floor. On top of all that, you find your self always dodging it in the shower as it feels like a magnet to your body. As far as design goes shower curtains also don’t add much elegance or decor value to your bathroom. With all of that said installing sliding tub doors in your tub can help with all of these issues.
