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.
Shower screens can also be perfect for compact bathrooms which have just the shower or possibly a separate shower away from the actual bathtub. To help create much more space, the right custom-built screen intended for the corner requires hardly any room and may well make the room appear larger just by continuing the line from the floor together with the walls past the shower screen.
Low level entry systems, referred to as wet room or walk in showers are now very popular, making use of the latest in sealant technologies and manufacturer enhancements. Showers are being combined with baths to make the very popular shower bath which is a fixed head over the bath with the water being deflected back into the bath with either a fixed panel screen or a simple shower curtain (both have their distinct advantages and disadvantages).
A second and different style of bath screen is the sliding option. This is a variation of the traditional fixed glass screen, but actually has a second glass screen that slides further along the bath and clicks into place magnetically. This sliding screen allows you to almost double the length of a normal screen of say 800mm to over a meter along the bath. This sliding bath screen is ideal where power showers or body jets are being used as it extends the protective area further along the bath and stops spray from escaping the shower area.
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.
