Your bathroom is a private area - a space to relax and preen yourself. The shower, in particular, is an oasis where you can let the world drift by while all your anxieties are literally washed away. But what if, instead of giving you a sense of peace and serenity, your shower makes you feel enclosed and stifled? This brings us to the subject of shower screens for your bathroom.
When designed and built with great thought, your bathroom can be one of the most relaxing spots in your home and a part of the house which will boost your property’s value. When constructing or remodeling this area, one thing to consider is adding shower screens. Incorporating this feature offers a number of advantages other than the comfort you seek and the value it contributes to the house in the long run.
Illusion of space
To a designer’s point of view, shower screens could make your bathroom look so much better than the typical shower curtain. A semi-frameless or frameless shower screen can create the illusion of space ideal for small bathrooms or narrow shower areas. And if the bathroom is small enough that you have the shower installed above the bathtub, a clear glass screen that slides sideways can provide you with the option of showering with or without the screen. The perfect solution for people who do not like feeling enclosed in the shower!
Functional advantages of shower screens
A shower screen creates functional advantages such as keeping your bathroom dry and non-slippery since the screens prevent the water in your shower area from splattering all over the bathroom floor. This is essential for bathrooms with limited ventilation and for families with kids who love to splash about in the shower.
Shower screen variations
There are three different, up-to-date styles of shower screens you can choose from: framed shower screens, semi-framed shower screens and frameless shower screens. Check out which one suits your bathroom best.
Framed shower screens
If you want a design that gives form and structure to your shower unit within the bathroom space, framed shower screens is the way to go. You can choose from a standard range of colors and metallic finishes that would complement the décor and the color of your bathroom walls and flooring. Framed shower screens can be customized according to color and other specifications and are available in a wide range of glass thickness and panel finishes.
Semi-frameless shower screens
If the elegance of chrome plated fittings and unblemished smooth lines of a shower screen are what you are looking for, the semi-frameless design gives you that and more. The 6mm glass semi-frameless shower screens with its clever construction and sealing components ensure minimal water leakage from the shower corral and the aesthetic design does not encourage any feeling of enclosure due to the clear, clean and unblemished quality of the glass screen.
Fully frameless shower screens
Frameless shower screens are the ultimate choice for people who do not like feeling enclosed in the shower. A custom-made frameless design of the screens affords extra lighting and offers optimum space illusion and ventilation to a small bathroom space. The uncluttered lines are the ultimate product of an upscale design that exudes luxury and aesthetic appeal that is truly inviting, one that is far from stifling. On a practical perspective, the frameless design makes cleaning the glass screen and door extremely easy.
The feeling of enclosure within a shower area often stems from the dimness, insufficient ventilation and solid screens or division material that isolate the shower unit from the entire bathroom area. If you do not like feeling enclosed in your shower, the perfect solution is to create an ambiance of spaciousness and airiness through semi-frameless and fully frameless shower screens.
