Amid all the preparations for a home sale, finding ways to increase property value is a top priority. With this in mind, it’s important to give the bathrooms – especially the master bathroom – some attention. To begin with, you’ll want to make sure everything in the bathroom is spotlessly clean and in good working order. For example, all the outlets should work, the shower door should open and close easily and quietly, etc. It’s also wise to compare your house with other real estate in the neighborhood since you don’t want your bathroom to be inferior to that of similar homes.

Replace Old Framed Shower Doors with a Frameless Enclosure

If you currently have an old framed shower door, switching to a frameless enclosure before the house sale gives you several benefits:


  • Frameless glass is currently much more popular than framed glass, so making this change updates the bathroom’s style.
  • New glass is fresh and clean (just the adjectives you want associated with your bathroom) while old shower glass is often scratched, stained, and scummy (not the impression you want to make).

  • Frameless glass gives prospective buyers a beautiful, modern
    shower that’s easier to clean than a framed enclosure, with all its nooks and crannies.
  • Clear frameless glass will make the shower area and the
    bathroom feel open and spacious in a way that patterned shower glass encased in aluminum framing cannot.

Generate Offers by Making Home Shoppers Want Your House

Along with offering very practical perks, a frameless shower upgrade is a home improvement that can affect property value in another way, too. It’s attractive. If a prospective buyer falls in love with an aspect of the home – in this case, your luxurious shower – it helps motivate him or her to make an offer and try to close the purchase. While a tub with an old framed shower door lets buyers know they’ll have a place to bathe, a new frameless shower does more. They can imagine relaxing in this elegant space, free of worry about having to update the bathroom themselves.
