A frameless shower screen is --- as the name suggests --- fully frameless, which means that it's self supported, with the panels attached using minimal hardware. The result is a very open and sleek shower area that's super popular amongst homeowners and commercial property owners who prefer an elegant minimalist look.
Conversely, semi-frameless shower screens have a small amount of framing present. The illusion of openness and spaciousness is lessened with the semi-frameless shower screen, making it a bit less popular amongst individuals who are seeking to create an illusion of open space in a small bathroom.
Semi-frameless shower screens do have some framing, which means it's more challenging to clean around those frame elements. Some metals are more prone to soap scum formation too, which can also serve to complicate cleaning. Fully frameless shower screens are much easier to clean than the framed or semi-frameless variety, as you won't need to tend to polishing the metal framework.
When your shower has metal frame components, this also means that you'll need to match that metal type and finish style to the other metal elements within the bathroom. This can limit your options when it comes to replacing fixtures, drawer and cabinet pulls and other components of your bathroom's décor.
A fully frameless shower screen is ideal for showing off beautiful custom tile work which may otherwise be obstructed by shower frame components. This makes our frameless shower screens a popular choice for clients who have opted to install customized tile work or stone shower walls, crafted from marble, onyx, granite and even quartz.
While our frameless shower screens create an atmosphere of sleek simplicity and openness that makes small bathroom spaces appear to be much larger, they can also provide you with privacy if you opt for frosted glass. (Plus, the glass naturally fogs up while taking a warm shower as a result of the steam!)
