Everything You Need To Know About Bath Shower Screens


November 2, 2023

Looking for an alternative to shower curtains? Bath shower screens are the answer. These may also be called shower screens, shower glass partitions, or glass cubicles. These are panels of glass that are usually attached to the wall with a hinge mechanism to prevent water from splashing and wetting your bath area when you are taking a shower.

They offer the benefit of keeping your bathroom dry, safe, and free from bacteria, as they only restrict the water inside the wet room. Besides separating the wet and dry areas, these glass cubicles also provide style and elegance to your bathroom.

Different types

There are many different types of shower screens, and some of them include the following.

Single panel screens

A common choice among homeowners, this screen is made of a single pane of glass that gives a clean and fuss-free design. It does not have many nooks and crannies where dirt can build up. Many of these single-panel screens have aframeless enclosure design for a minimalist approach.

Double panel bi-fold screens

With hinges in the center, these shower screens work the same way as shower doors, which is ideal if you want protection from splash or if your bathroom is smaller.

You can also choose from framed and frameless shower enclosures. The latter is held together not by a frame but by special clips and hinges.

Some of these frameless enclosures may offer top rail to help hold things together.

 Sliding shower doors give you an illusion of more space, even if your bathroom is small and has limited space. It allows easy shower access, especially to anyone with limited mobility.

Special Finishes

Shower glass partitions are available in an impressive range of different finishes, from brushed brass to modern matte black to timeless chrome, which can provide your bathroom with timeless elegance.

Shower enclosures are usually used on straight bathtubs. However, they can be customised into many different sizes and shapes as long as they can contain the water coming from the shower and do not go everywhere when you’re showering.

Care and Maintenance 

Regarding care and maintenance of shower partitions, they do not need to be strictly maintained; just regular cleaning, so they do not get stained. After each use, give your bath shower partition a quick wipe down; most high-quality glass screens have easy, clean coating that will make the job easier. Cleaning after each use is highly recommended because it can keep your bathroom looking brand new for longer.

Children’s Safety

If you have children in the house, there shouldn’t be any problems with glass cubicles. Make sure they are made from high quality, toughened glass; and bevelled to create a smooth edge. For peace of mind and to remove your worries, get a screen that you can fold and tuck away whenever the children are around.

Buying Your Glass Partition

These days, you can find a lot of shower partitions in the market with beautiful designs that will match your bathroom style. While saving you valuable bathroom space, some even have shelves, tower racks and handles, providing added convenience.

Your Budget  

In choosing a product for home improvement, budget is one of the most important things to consider. Shower glass partitions may range in cost from a few hundred to several thousand dollars, so it will be wise to determine your budget before shopping. This will allow you to narrow your choices and find the glass cubicle according to your requirements and budget.
