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.
