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.
Bathroom design is becoming more adventurous, and more options are being continually explored. New materials, fabrics and colors are now being used in bathrooms. Approaches to design include a bolder and more stylish look to the components in the bathroom. The typical configuration for most bathrooms is having the shower head over your bath tub. But when the shower is in use, water will often be sprayed or deflected outside of the shower area. Bath screens can be used to confine water within the shower area, to protect other surfaces, such as the floor and walls.
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.
Fittings and hardware for shower screens are additionally available in various finishes making sure that you possibly can coordinate with the rest of the hardware within your bath room. For even great convenience, add in glass shelving that will actually enhance the style of solid glass. Regardless of what style bathroom you’ve got or maybe choose to design, there’s a shower screen that will make the ideal addition.
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.
