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.
But the shower curtain nightmare doesn’t end with this physical attraction. For some strange reason, kittens and young cats like to play in the shower and one of the items that they like to pounce and shred is the shower curtain! Thicker shower curtains seem to last through several of these playful fights, but it’s really just a matter of time before your cat turns your shower curtains into ragged Venetian blinds. Bath screens, as you can guess, can withstand even the most aggressive cat, and they aren’t inclined to gravitate toward you while you’re covered in suds! Made of sturdy, glass or glass-like material (such as plexiglass for example), bath screens come in a variety of styles and sizes while adding a touch of beauty.
Bath screens can also add a luxurious look and feel to your bathroom. They can make the room look larger also. A transparent bath screen can make the room appear to be larger than it would look with a colored shower curtain hanging in the same area. You have several choices in the style of bath screens you can install into your bathroom. You can get sliding screens or screens that pivot. With the ones that slide you can create an entrance to the tub that is larger or smaller to accommodate the person getting in or out of the bath. These pieces are excellent when you need to place children or pets in the tub.
A bathroom is the place where you tend to spend most of your moments, major reflecting of what has been going on in the daily routine or wondering how to crack a major business deal. So it is important that your bathroom gives a certain air of comfort and also is reasonably luxurious. One of the major advances in the field of bathroom luxury is the addition of glass shower cubicles, which seem to be a rage in the world of bathroom décor. It is easily one of the most eye pleasing concepts in terms of bathroom luxury and can be quiet an addition to your bathroom.
The previous types of screens generally work best in larger bathrooms because they can take up a lot of space and seem too big in a small area. For smaller bathrooms, you should consider a folding multi-panel screen. These can be pushed up and stored in a small area by your tub, or pulled out to cover the same space as a frameless screen. This way they only take up space when you’re using them.
