Everyone likes to save a bit of cash, especially in this economic climate, so why call out a tradesman to fit your brand new bath screen. Exactly – why spend money on something you can do yourself, plus you might actually enjoy it and get a great sense of satisfaction once you have completed it (perhaps wishful thinking). Bath screens more often than not do not fill the entire run of the bath, instead they shield off just the part where the shower is, allowing a little extra to stop the spray going all over the floor. Most doors come with a hinge to allow for a pivot operation to help with cleaning and also for added safety if your children use the bath for example.
Bathroom design is becoming more adventurous, and more options are being continually explored. New materials, fabrics and colors are now being used in bathrooms. Approaches to design include a bolder and more stylish look to the components in the bathroom. The typical configuration for most bathrooms is having the shower head over your bath tub. But when the shower is in use, water will often be sprayed or deflected outside of the shower area. Bath screens can be used to confine water within the shower area, to protect other surfaces, such as the floor and walls.
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.
