You’re upgrading your bathroom, and you’ve come to the part where you need to choose a shower screen. The last thing you want is to purchase one that’s going to look awful after a couple of years or stop keeping water out of the rest of your bathroom. These are the essential things you need to know in order to choose a shower screen that will last a lifetime.
Shower screens might not be something you ever thought should take a good deal of, well… thought. They are, however! There are many options: materials, direction, opening method, etc. After reading this you’ll feel confident in your choice.
Why choose a screen over a curtain?
The first and most important consideration is Why? you’re choosing a shower screen over a traditional shower curtain. Long story short: they’re better. They’re more hygienic, easier to clean, and they are much more effective at keeping the rest of your bathroom clean and dry. They’re also a much more elegant choice.
What price range would you be willing to spend on a shower screen? The materials and design of your shower screen will determine the price.
How much space does your shower have that needs to be screened? Shower screens come in all sizes, from a tiny one-man stand-up shower, to a large, elegant space that’s the size of a walk-in closet.
Frameless shower screens are best for smaller showers. Clear glass can also be a good choice as light can shine through, making your bathroom seem larger.
Quality of Glass
You want to ensure that when you’re putting a large sheet of glass in your bathroom, that it’s up to safety standards. Can you imagine falling on the shower door and causing it to shatter? Bathroom International’s screens meet Australian safety standards, so you can enjoy your bathroom and know you and your family will be safe.
Shower screens require cleaning just like any other part of your bathroom, even though they’re of a much lower maintenance standard than shower curtains. Choose one that has easy access to all parts, so you don’t get mildew or grime stuck in any nooks or crannies. Clear glass is much easier to clean than textured and frosted. It is easier to clean a frameless screen than a screen that has a frame.
