One of the things on our house to-do list is to install glass shower doors on a few of our bathrooms. While there are so many fun shower curtains out there, I really feel like a glass shower door makes the room feel bigger and brighter. Not to mention, it definitely adds value to your house and helps keep the water inside the tub! Those of you with kids know what I’m talking about :)
The first bathroom I wanted to tackle was the kids’. Lets just say bath time ends up being a huge water fight with two little kids. While fun for them, it always leaves water everywhere and me mopping up the floor. Also, they share a jack-and-jill bathroom and the bathtub and potty are in a small room off the main sink area. The room feels really crammed and I was hoping the Sterling Prevail Shower Door would help make the room feel bigger. I wanted to share our experience installing our Sterling shower doors with ComforTrack technology and what a difference it made.
The installation process was WAY easier than we expected it to be. My husband and I are always up for a DIY project, it just happens that most of our projects are new to us and end up taking a lot longer because of the learning curve. This was just the opposite. If we didn’t have two kids interrupting us every 5 minutes, this project would have only taken an hour or so. Here is what the bathroom started with before. See, pretty small. The Sterling Prevail came with great directions and we followed them the whole way through. The first step is to measure and cut the bottom track. We used a metal blade on our Butcher Hand Saw and it cut right through the metal. You will also want to trim the corners to round them. The next step is to install the tracks. Anytime we drill into our brand new house, not to mention a brand new bathtub, I get a little nervous. This was just another prime example of always measuring twice and cutting/drilling once. We noticed that our tub wasn’t perfectly level, but we wanted our doors to be level, so there is a tad slope on the edges. The rest of the process was really simple. We following the provided directions and before we knew it, our beautiful glass doors were installed! I love that the doors are on a flexible track, it’s perfect for bathing the kids or when we need to give the dog a good scrubbing. They are also really easy to adjust. When we first put them on one of the doors was too high, but you can easily adjust it by moving the rollers on the door. I really recommend the Sterling Prevail shower doors. Not only do they look really chic (they also have tons of other styles), but they are really reasonably priced. I would definitely consider putting them in our other bathrooms.
