Bath screens are made to stop water from getting on the floor when someone in the tub is bathing or showering. Water is often splashed from the tub when these activities are taking place and the water creates a mess and a hazard. You are much more likely to slip and fall if the floor is wet than you would when the floor is dry. If the floor gets wet repeatedly then it can begin to rot away because of the moisture. You can also get a mold and mildew problem if the surface of the floor is continuously gotten wet and does not dry out for long periods of time. Bath screens can stop all of these things from happening.
One other talking point that can add volumes to your bathroom décor is the bath shower screen. Now this is one more variety of bathroom utilities that can create a great sense of taste to your bathroom and also be purposeful in its installation. Bath shower screens can be good options if multiple people want to use the washroom at one go and it is one of the ways that people have devised to get the work done quickly. With the help of bath shower screen, you can be sure that the bathroom will also maintain the cleanliness and the water from your shower wont spill over from the requisite area allocated to the shower space. The modern world technology has brought with it many ways to even revamp a simple thing like a bathroom from just a utility to a full on experimental space. It is up to as to what you can do with yours. Pick and choose according to the space that your bathroom allows you, and you will definitely see good results.
A second and different style of bath screen is the sliding option. This is a variation of the traditional fixed glass screen, but actually has a second glass screen that slides further along the bath and clicks into place magnetically. This sliding screen allows you to almost double the length of a normal screen of say 800mm to over a meter along the bath. This sliding bath screen is ideal where power showers or body jets are being used as it extends the protective area further along the bath and stops spray from escaping the shower area.
Shower enclosures and bath screens now come in such a wide variety of shapes and sizes, no longer are you left with a choice of two or three styles and just the one colour. The act of showering has now evolved into not just personal hygiene but into something can be considered stress relieving, sensual and invigorating. This drive has forced the showering market to evolve with consumer needs and requirements driving this change.
However, there has always been the option of having a shower unit installed over a bath. This was achieved by using a shower curtain and rail system to deflect water back into the bath. Whilst this option is still used, the shower curtain was a messy affair, stuck your body when wet and did nothing for the look or style of your bathroom.
