This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sterling for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
I admit it. I daydream about my bathroom. Not the way it is now, of course. After all, there’s no bathtub in my bathroom. What???? Yep, no bathtub. And I want one. The original owner of my house decided to forgo the bathtub and had a larger shower installed instead. Which is fine if you never take baths. I’d like to have the option.This may be a job beyond my DIY skills, but I plan on doing some research to find out! After all, I surprised myself when I remodeled my powder room all by myself.
So someday I will update the bathroom and have the shower removed and a tub/shower unit installed. And when I do, I want to have a shower door – not just a curtain. My shower stall has a shower door and I’ve gotten used to having one.
During my research I found out about Sterling shower doors with ComforTrack technology. I have learned that Sterling shower doors:
- Have a flexible track, which is comfortable and easy to clean.
- They are great for bathing kids, washing dogs, lolling in the bath with your feet up, etc. (All the stuff you can’t do with a hard shower track.)
- They are even made with ComforTrack technology and are available for BOTH bath doors and shower doors. Yay!
My dream bathroom would have a great pair of Bluetooth speakers in them too!

I love that you want to have a shower door installed along with your tub/shower unit. My husband and I have been thinking about remodeling our bathroom and getting a frameless shower door installed. We’ll definitely need professionals to come help us out though.

I like bathtubs. Bathing is a very pleasant thing and it’s getting even more pleasant after a long difficult day. But this is not the best option in terms of water consumption. Generally speaking, it’s thought that a 10-minute shower will use significantly less water than a soak in the tub would. Standard showers are thought to use around 2.5 gallons of water per minute, whilst a large freestanding bath might require the distribution of up to 70 gallons in total. So, taking a shower, you’re saving water. You can even get more of it by installing low-flow showerheads. They consider to reduce water consumption as well as your water bills by up to 30%.
Good point! But not only do low-flow showerheads help you reduce your water bills but also energy bills. You know, it takes energy to heat up the water, so when you use less water it requires less energy to heat up.
Speaking of heating water, I want to add that you a tankless heater could help save even more both energy and money. It is 24–34 percent more energy-efficient over a traditional tank in households using less than 41 gallons of hot water a day. Plus, demand heaters are simpler to repair than their traditional counterparts and take up little space.
I see your tub/shower unit has framed glass doors. Didn’t you find it difficult to clean them? Cause many people do. While you’re cleaning your shower doors, don’t forget to let the solution soak. Don’t overlook this step, as it is the best way to clean soap scum off your shower doors. Wait at least 15-20 minutes after applying the cleaning mixture to the frame and glass panel before wiping it off. Doing so will make your cleaning routine easier and help the surface of your shower door shine more than it would if you were to wipe off the solution too soon.

Also, think about lighting. Well-thought-out lighting works wonders. Consider installing dimmer switches. This allows you to customize the brightness of your bathroom depending on the time of day and your mood. So, you can illuminate your bathroom in the morning to wake up, make some skincare routine, and lower the lighting when you’re taking an evening bath. According to this article https://servicetoday247.com/7-hacks-to-a-brighter-home/, they are relatively easy to install for moderately experienced DIYers.
