A bathroom is the place where you tend to spend most of your moments, major reflecting of what has been going on in the daily routine or wondering how to crack a major business deal. So it is important that your bathroom gives a certain air of comfort and also is reasonably luxurious. One of the major advances in the field of bathroom luxury is the addition of glass shower cubicles, which seem to be a rage in the world of bathroom décor. It is easily one of the most eye pleasing concepts in terms of bathroom luxury and can be quiet an addition to your bathroom.
Bath screens come in a very wide variety of styles, materials and colours but the most popular design has always been the sail bath screen. Introduced as far back as the sixties, this style has managed to consistently out sell all other types of bath water reppellors. It has to be said, however that not everyone has the room to fit a luxurious sail bath screen above or along the edge of their bath tub and so they opt for a different style, usually either a four fold or a two fold bath deflector which simply folds back after use, prior to cleaning or as in most cases all the time to allow for space. These types are also beneficial if you have young children as they fold back easily and safely away from the flailing arms and bath toys of your children.
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.
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.
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.
