Using glass shower screens in the bathroom: Is it any good?


A good shower is necessary, but what’s even more essential is a proper showerscreen, more so, if you have a shower installed but don’t quite like the idea of a shower curtain. Of course, curtains are difficult to clean, look a bit dated and unsightly, and can even cause mould and mildew. Thus, getting a frameless glass showerscreen installed keeps the bathroom splash-free while you shower.


What are shower screens?


As you might have guessed already glass panels are fixed to the wall via some hinge mechanism to keep the bathroom splash-free. Over the years, frameless showerscreens have become the new norm - a minimalist, but viable and effective alternative to the old-fashioned shower curtains.


Types of Sydney Showerscreen


  • Single panel shower Screens

As the name implies, these are made using a single piece of glass. It boasts a fuss-free clean design and doesn’t have lots of nooks and crannies for mold or muck build-up. Such single panel designs offer a minimalistic look and glam up the feel of the bathroom.


  • Double panel Sydney Showerscreen

Double panel shower screens have a hinge in the middle, allowing them to be used in a few different ways. They can even work like shower doors, particularly if the bathroom lacks space or if you want some extra splash protection. Moreover, these tend to be a bit longer, so such panels are particularly great for longer bathrooms.


For those wondering how long a frameless glass showerscreen tends to be, it depends on the bathtub size or the shower's power. These showerscreens are generally measured in mm and come in varied thicknesses and heights. The best part of getting a showerscreen installed is the fact that they can be installed in varied shapes, depending on the design of your bathroom, even if you’ve got something different! The thickness of a normal Sydney showerscreen ranges between 3-8 mm. While the thicker shower screens look a tad more premium and add to the appeal of the bathroom, they tend to be a lot heavier. So, a thinner frameless glass showerscreen may seem flimsier, but it gets the job done and is also notably cheaper than the heavier and thicker options available.

Why are shower screens popular?


Frameless showerscreens are used to stop water from spraying all over the floor. So, if you don’t have a particularly well-designed wet room, shower screens become all the more necessary. Luckily, when you decide on buying a showerscreen, you’d have tons of options at your disposal. So, you can always find the right product that ticks all the boxes and meets your needs.


Whether you have a recessed shower, a rectangular corner shower, or a simple walk-in shower, a glass shower screen is almost an absolute must.


  • Visually appealing

No matter what, frameless showerscreens or a showerscreen, in general, are the most aesthetically pleasing decor option for bathrooms. The fact that they work well with contemporary interior design as well with traditional design elements, is what makes it effective and popular all the more. Frameless glass shower screens complement all kinds of color schemes and bathroom styles. So, no matter what style or design you choose, the showerscreen will always look elegant and make the bathroom look elegant.


  • Easy to clean

No points for guessing this! Glass showerscreens are low-maintenance installations, and so, they look pristine for a very long time. Keeping the glass panels clean is really easy. Use a squeegee to stop the water and soap from staining the glass. This will also lower the build-up of bacteria and mold, and heighten the hygiene in your home.


  • Prevents bathroom puddles

Glass showerscreens are installed to prevent water from spraying all over the bathroom floor when showering. Thus, installing one is the best way of keeping bathroom puddles at bay. It is a notable upgrade over shower curtains, particularly because the latter often fails to prevent water from getting everywhere. In fact, a Sydney showerscreen is your safest bet when you don’t want your bathroom to look like a paddling pool.


  • Versatile

While it is pretty obvious that glass shower screens are quite handy in terms of their application, they’re also quite adaptable in terms of their design. They are available in varied glass options, come in different sizes, and even feature different styles and designs. That is not all! They can be hinged, sliding, or fixed, all configured to suit your needs.


  • Gives an open feel

As a showerscreen is transparent, it gives a spacious feel, thus often preferred by people, to give their bathroom a big feeling. As it doesn’t quite act like a brick wall or a normal partition, it makes the place seem more bright and airy. The same is true even for frosted or opaque frameless showerscreens.
