Bringing you both functionality and style, shower screens protect the bathroom from being flooded with water at the same time enhancing the look of the room with elegant design options and configurations. Whether the shower is fitted in your bath, or you have a walk-in enclosure, glass panels offer variety of benefits leading to stylish, hygienic living.

Considerations when buying Shower Screens

Key aspects to bear in mind when choosing a new shower screen –

1.      Type of Glass

You can choose either Clear Glass; Frosted Glass for privacy or Decorative/Patterned Glass for aesthetic appeal. The glass used for the shower screen should be toughened to withstand temperature changes and ensure safety should it shatter.  Tempered Glass is an obvious for most home owners.

2.      Thickness of Glass

Glass thickness is an important consideration when buying a new shower door or enclosure, as the thicker the glass, the safer and more robust it will be.

3.      Colour of Glass

While clear glass is an original choice, you may decide to get creative with various colours or patterns

4.      Fittings & Fixtures (Hardware)

You must carefully consider the wall fixtures – such as brackets and hinges and also the open-close mechanism. Ensure the glass is securely attached to your wall, floor, tiles or other glass panels.

Proper thought to all these considerations help ensure that you find a fully functional design which fits your bathroom space and suits your individual style.

Upkeep of Glass Shower Doors and Cubicles

upkeep of dirty bathroom shower screens

Shower Screens can become messy over time as you enjoy your daily refreshing shower and it can be easy to overlook. Adding quick and simple tasks to your home cleaning regime will ensure you maintain a hygienic, tidy bathroom.

  1. Apply your bathroom cleaner as per instructions on the bottle
  2. Rinse your shower screen and wipe with a sponge or cloth to remove excess grime and soap scum
  3. Use a streak-free glass cleaner or a mixture of white vinegar and water to polish the glass

Always avoid using abrasive/harsh cleaning solutions as these can scratch and damage the glass
