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.
Another innovation in bath screens are the sliding units, sliding bath screens is another mode for both protection and convenience. Two or more panels are installed on runners, or with a mechanism that allows them to be slid in position, or out of the way for easy entrance or exit. Additional features can allow them to be locked in position, for a tighter seal to prevent water leakage.
Bath screens come in a very wide variety of styles, materials and colours but the most popular design has always been the sail bath screen. Introduced as far back as the sixties, this style has managed to consistently out sell all other types of bath water reppellors. It has to be said, however that not everyone has the room to fit a luxurious sail bath screen above or along the edge of their bath tub and so they opt for a different style, usually either a four fold or a two fold bath deflector which simply folds back after use, prior to cleaning or as in most cases all the time to allow for space. These types are also beneficial if you have young children as they fold back easily and safely away from the flailing arms and bath toys of your children.
Shopping For Bath Screens : Choosing which model to buy can be a hassle though especially with the many companies producing this functional shower product. One good company that you should check out is the Better Bathrooms. Aside from the basic, they offer other screen styles, which include those that come with hinged and swinging doors. Their screens also come as 4- and 5-fold, sliding, or folding varieties.
Looking for a new and exciting way to spice up the bathroom? Why not have a stylish bath screen installed? Unlike shower curtains, bath screens transform the everyday ho-hum bath and shower into an high-tech and open-spaced experience. Anyone who owns shower curtains can certainly attest to their inconvenience. In fact, there’s almost nothing more awkward. Sure, they do their job in keeping water inside the shower, but they have the uncanny ability to gravitate toward the pour soul who’s taking a shower, and literally stick to the very skin that’s being washed! It’s strange but true. Shower curtains – especially the thinner ones – can be attracted to the heat source generated within the bath and seemingly attack whoever is inside. As funny as that may seem – it’s no joke when the shower curtain isn’t as clean as it should be. No one wants to fight with a dirty shower curtain while trying to get clean.
