Shower door??

holcombe3December 13, 2013

Ok, we are putting the last finishing touches on our forever home. We have a nursery bathroom downstairs (I'm currently expecting). We have 2 bathrooms upstairs one for our 2 yr old Daughter and one that is a jack n Jill bath. I already know that I want to put a shower curtain in the nursery bathroom because I will be bathing a child in it and the shower door will be in the way. I'm debating on whether to do a curtain or shower door on the 2 upstairs baths. I've read that they are hard to keep clean. The jack n Jill bathroom will primarily be used as a guest bath until the little boy I am carrying now is old enough to move upstairs. What would you do?

Well, my kids were a bit older before they took showers. It was scary for them to have the water running on them in a shower. If it was me, since my kids bathed for years (maybe until 8 or 10?) I would put a curtain rod up. You wouldn't even need a curtain expect in the guest bath. When they are regular showerers, decide which you would prefer. The guest can manage a shower curtain.

Hi holcombe, I personally hate shower curtains at home because they get moldy so easily. But, little kids do seem a lot safer with them.

I've installed shower doors in our two bathrooms. I don't have any kids, but have little nieces who stay over frequently. They're 8 and 10 now, so they manage the door ok. But, at home, they use a shower curtain because they have a sister who is only turning 4.

I've never had a problem with a moldy shower curtain. I'm curious if the people who have had problems don't open their curtains fully to dry after their showers. I've always left them fully extended for a few hours before sliding them to the side again.

If they do get moldy on the bottom edge, I've washed them with great success. Certainly easier than always cleaning the shower doors.
