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.
Bath screens may be better alternatives to shower curtains. They are easier to maintain and give your bathroom a much cleaner, crisper and brighter appearance. Because they are usually made of material that is able to reflect light, they help to make the area look bigger than it really is. They can add a factor of form, along with improved styling, to give your bathroom a more stylish look and feel.
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.
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.
For many people, installing a stand alone shower enclosure is simply not possible. Bathroom space can limit your choice to either a shower or a bath, but not both together. In this situation most families will opt for a bath over a shower enclosure as small children and babies make a shower a non starter.
