Simple Way to Beautiful Bathrooms with Glass Shower Screens

by | Mar 8, 2016 | Construction & Contractors

Does your bathroom appear dull or uninviting? The task of making the bathroom inviting isn’t all that difficult if you install fixtures and appliances that not only look good but also, that have a duty. Glass shower screens are a worthwhile choice, because they will prevent the growth of mildew and mould. When inhaled, these spores can be harmful to health and can cause respiratory conditions to worsen, so do consider framed, semi-framed or frameless shower screens when updating the space. An opportunity to expose beautiful tiles that might currently be hidden by a shower curtain or opaque screen, these enhancements will create the illusion of more space.

The Types of Shower Glass

Pretty much all shower screens will be treated, so that the glass is as strong as possible and the chances of it breaking are low. A traditional bathroom would look good with antiqued glass shower screens. When crafted with quality craftsmanship, this type of glass can blend in well with the ‘distressed’ look. Consider getting frames fitted for an added antique touch. Alternative types of glass to choose from include etched glass panels, tinted shower glass and frosted glass. Depending on your privacy preferences, frosted glass can be softly frosted or heavily frosted, which will make the screen opaque.

Shower Configuration

Something that will affect the type of glass shower screens you can get fitted, the installation cost and the time it takes for installation to be completed is the shower configuration. It is advisable to get in contact with someone who can assess the layout of the bathroom and help you pick out a screen that works well with whatever the shower configuration is. Popular configurations include shower cubicles with sliding doors and shower cubicles with hinged doors.

Stop Water from Escaping

When water escapes from the shower enclosure, it will cause a real safety issue. Water will make the floor slippery and this can contribute to slips and falls, which is a serious problem if you are an elderly individual or someone who breaks bones easily! Glass shower screens can be fitted with or without a frame. Whatever option you choose, you won’t have to fret about water escaping, because the clearance space between the bottom of the screen and the floor of the shower will be very tight. Ask the fitter to test the screen and make sure it is completely water tight to be sure you are putting your money in the right place.
