We live in an era of finesse, both on the professional as well as personal fronts. We make good money to live the good life and we do not compromise on our style statements, no matter how hard we have to work to attain those. One of the most impressive possessions that we own or like to show off is the home that we live in. It is for most people, one of the most cherished of dreams and it is the one thing that we work for. One of the major components inside a good home is a good bathroom. This has been proven by many people over the time and it holds credibility as well.
If a big bulky frame isn’t your thing, you should look at frameless over-bath screens. These screens are for baths that are surrounded on three sides. They cover the half of open side that the shower is on. They’re more visually appealing than traditional bath screens because they don’t have big metal frames. The problem I with these screens is that water can splash around the outside or through spaces between the screen and the tub. These screens are best for bathrooms with tile or flooring that won’t get water damaged. Frameless screens are available fixed, or with a hinge so they can open and close.
Low level entry systems, referred to as wet room or walk in showers are now very popular, making use of the latest in sealant technologies and manufacturer enhancements. Showers are being combined with baths to make the very popular shower bath which is a fixed head over the bath with the water being deflected back into the bath with either a fixed panel screen or a simple shower curtain (both have their distinct advantages and disadvantages).
With bath screens you can choose ones that are clear and transparent to enhance the look of the tile in your bath. You can also choose pieces that have been acid etched to create an opaque look so that you cannot see past the glass surface. The opaque images on the glass surface can be crafted to create picture scenes or designs. You can add a personal flare by using these items. You can purchase many different types of hinges and hardware to create a look in your bathroom that you will find pleasing. You will find hardware that is chrome, and polished brass, and nickel plated. You have the opportunity to get versions of these items that have hidden hinges so they appear to be free floating on the surface.
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.
