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.
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.
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.
Shower enclosures and bath screens now come in such a wide variety of shapes and sizes, no longer are you left with a choice of two or three styles and just the one colour. The act of showering has now evolved into not just personal hygiene but into something can be considered stress relieving, sensual and invigorating. This drive has forced the showering market to evolve with consumer needs and requirements driving this change.
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.
