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.
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.

A second and different style of bath screen is the sliding option. This is a variation of the traditional fixed glass screen, but actually has a second glass screen that slides further along the bath and clicks into place magnetically. This sliding screen allows you to almost double the length of a normal screen of say 800mm to over a meter along the bath. This sliding bath screen is ideal where power showers or body jets are being used as it extends the protective area further along the bath and stops spray from escaping the shower area.
In case you have a traditional style bathroom with a bath tub and shower in one window, the right clear glass screen will certainly help ”open up” the bathroom and additionally allow for much more light than a shower curtain. Many screens are really practically invisible making sure that the actual light from the window is unobstructed and can shine through into your entire bathroom. Due to the fact the bathroom is definitely the room which is most likely not to have a sufficient quantity of light, this could make a tremendous difference in the actual way the bathroom feels. Making use of a new screen for your tub as well as shower can really brighten the room as well as make it all look newer.
Standard sizes for bath screens are either 12 or 24 inches wide, and 50 to 60 inches high. If you do your own design, be sure to take accurate measurements to determine exactly what size will be most suitable. After determining the screen requirements, there are the other parts needed, such as the hinges, door handles, and panel attachments. Shower curtains, although still very popular are being replaced by screens when bathrooms are re-modelled. It is easy to see why, as the screens are more versatile, and offer more styling opportunities.
