Glass shower screens are the perfect solution to keeping water from getting on your floor. They are also the perfect way to change the look of your bath when you are doing a makeover. Professionals love using these pieces to create a clean look in a bathroom that is functional and attractive.
Glass shower screens come in many different designs. You can get them in curved versions, folding screens, and even in frameless glass shower screens. You can even get these pieces custom designed so that the piece you get creates the look you want.
Some of the most favorable benefits to be found in the use of glass shower screens are:
• These items provide excellent protection for the floor in your bathroom. Shower curtains can be left open when the shower is in use and water can get all over the floor of the bathroom. This water can cause severe damage to the flooring.
• The installation of glass shower screens is very simple.
• They are easily maintained and cleaned
• These screens will keep the steam that is created in the unit contained to the water proof surface and reduce condensation on mirrors and other surfaces within the bathroom
• Perfect for adding the finishing touches to a bathroom re-design. They give the room a completely new look and feel.
• They are more sanitary than the plastic curtains are. Mold and mildew can form on the plastic curtains but will not form on these screens. The surface of these items can be rendered 100% free of germs because it is non-porous.
• These items are durable and they are difficult to break. If they are broken they are designed to break into many small pieces instead of into large pieces. The small pieces will not allow a person to receive a life threatening or disfiguring injury from the shard where a large shard could potential cause life threatening injuries.
• They are cost effective. You will find a screen to fit in the price range of almost any budget you have set for your makeover in your bathroom.
• No matter what décor changes you make through the life of your home the screens will look good and compliment the changes. They go with any style of decorating.
You can personalize these items with the changing of the handles that are on them. You can also change the fittings and choose different styles of screens so that you make your bathroom look the way you dream of it looking. There are also different shower heads to choose from and there are lighting fixtures that you can put in these units.
The initial price of these items is higher than the cost of the plastic curtains. The fact that these units last virtually forever makes them a wiser choice in the long run. The plastic curtains have to be replaced frequently or at least every twelve weeks. This can really add up to a lot of money over the years.
