They may also be more cost effective when providing needed protection, and, with the variety of options, including colors shapes and sizes, along with different frames, they can provide an easy enhancement to upgrade the appearance of your bathroom. Screens are also much easier to maintain and keep clean than shower curtains. Bath screens are not only functional, but they can enhance the appearance, by adding some beauty and appeal while offering protecting from water damage to surrounding surfaces. Bath screens are available in a wide range of shapes, and sizes and finding one to suit any particular setting is an easy task.
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.
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.
Most bathing areas will be tiled and grouted to provide a permanent seal so the water does not ingress into your plasterboard or brickwork. This also provides a decorative to the entire bathroom and will play a big part in setting the overall mood and style in your bathing area. Some people prefer to use a combination of two shower curtains in there over bath showering system, one is purely for functionality (that is preventing any water from running outside the bath and onto the floor) and the other to add to the decorative style of the bathroom. It also means that only the internal curtain ever needs to be replaced as the other one does not come in contact with dirt and grime.
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.
