Then came the option of a fixed glass bath screen. The screen was fitted to the wall and ran about 800mm along the top edge of the bath tub. This avoided the need for a curtain and the problems mentioned above. However, having a fixed glass screen permanently in place running half the length of your bath made getting in and out difficult. Bathing children was also made difficult, not to mention the hassle of cleaning! Today, there are a couple of great solutions for bathrooms can only have a bath rather than a shower enclosure.

If you’re like me, you probably think shower curtains are a hassle. They are a pain to move around; they easily get dirty and full of mildew; and if you don’t use them right, you end up with water everywhere. If you’re thinking there has to be a better way; you’re right. A bath screen is a glass or plastic piece that fits onto the side of your shower and blocks the water just like a curtain would. The benefit is that they’re much easier to use and keep clean. They also work better if you have a really strong shower spray.
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.
