A glass shower enclosure can be available in many shapes and sizes, and people can pick them up according to the space that is available at hand for installing one. Corner glass shower enclosures are a popular choice among people these days, simply because of the fact that these spare a lot of space to play with in the bathroom and yet look stunningly beautiful and add to the décor of the bathroom, which can be the talking point of your house if its done up tastefully.
There are several different types of bath screens, and it’s important that you choose the right one. The first type is a full bath enclosure. This is similar to a typical sliding shower door; except it goes around your entire bathtub. They are easily cleaned and block water from escaping better than a shower curtain. You should get this type of screen if you have flooring that can’t get wet or a bathtub that is no enclosed by walls on three sides.
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.
If you’re like me, you probably think shower curtains are a hassle. They are a pain to move around; they easily get dirty and full of mildew; and if you don’t use them right, you end up with water everywhere. If you’re thinking there has to be a better way; you’re right. A bath screen is a glass or plastic piece that fits onto the side of your shower and blocks the water just like a curtain would. The benefit is that they’re much easier to use and keep clean. They also work better if you have a really strong shower spray.
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.
