Looking for a new and exciting way to spice up the bathroom? Why not have a stylish bath screen installed? Unlike shower curtains, bath screens transform the everyday ho-hum bath and shower into an high-tech and open-spaced experience. Anyone who owns shower curtains can certainly attest to their inconvenience. In fact, there’s almost nothing more awkward. Sure, they do their job in keeping water inside the shower, but they have the uncanny ability to gravitate toward the pour soul who’s taking a shower, and literally stick to the very skin that’s being washed! It’s strange but true. Shower curtains – especially the thinner ones – can be attracted to the heat source generated within the bath and seemingly attack whoever is inside. As funny as that may seem – it’s no joke when the shower curtain isn’t as clean as it should be. No one wants to fight with a dirty shower curtain while trying to get clean.
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.
Another innovation in bath screens are the sliding units, sliding bath screens is another mode for both protection and convenience. Two or more panels are installed on runners, or with a mechanism that allows them to be slid in position, or out of the way for easy entrance or exit. Additional features can allow them to be locked in position, for a tighter seal to prevent water leakage.
We live in an era of finesse, both on the professional as well as personal fronts. We make good money to live the good life and we do not compromise on our style statements, no matter how hard we have to work to attain those. One of the most impressive possessions that we own or like to show off is the home that we live in. It is for most people, one of the most cherished of dreams and it is the one thing that we work for. One of the major components inside a good home is a good bathroom. This has been proven by many people over the time and it holds credibility as well.
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.
