3 Occasions When You Should Consider a Frameless Shower Screen

Posted on: 17 May 2017

The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in any home. If you are planning a bathroom renovation, you may not have considered installing frameless shower screens. As the name suggest, a frameless shower screen is a glass panel which does not have a frame surrounding it. Below is a guide to 3 setups which may benefit from the installation of a frameless shower screen.

Small Bathroom

If the bathroom in your home is quite small, you are probably looking for ways to save space. The best way of doing so is by removing the bathtub and installing a standup shower cubicle. Installing a frameless screen on the cubicle will further reduce the space used. Frameless shower screens will also allow a large amount of light to enter the shower, which will help to transform the look of a dull or dingy bathroom.

Tub and Shower Set Up

If your bathroom is slightly larger and you can comfortably fit a tub and shower setup in the space, the area probably has a sliding door. However, you should consider removing this door and installing a frameless shower screen which opens outwards. A door which opens outwards can make it much easier to exit the confined space of the tub. Installing a frameless screen will also make cleaning the bathroom a piece of cake, as you will not need to reach down into any tight or hard-to-reach corners behind the sliding door.

Walk-in Shower

A walk-in shower used to be the preserve of very high-value homes. However, increasing numbers of Australian families are taking the time to invest in these luxury showers. Luxury walk-in showers give you the space to relax while you wash and are sometimes fitted with entertainment and music systems. Because of the size of a walk-in shower, you can typically fit any screen you like. However, a frameless screen will help to create a sophisticated look which will make your bathroom look like a million dollars. For added privacy, you may wish to invest in a tinted shower screen, which will allow others to use the bathroom while you are using the walk-in shower space.

If you would like to find out more about the benefits of installing a frameless shower screen in your bathroom, you should contact a bathroom door company. A contractor will be happy to visit your property to discuss your bathroom renovation needs.


Tips on Choosing Security Doors

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen an increase in burglaries where I live. While we’ve been lucky so far, my husband and I decided to increase our home security to be on the safe side. We both work long hours and like to take long holidays. This leaves our house empty all day during the week and for a good few weeks in the summer. One of the things we looked at was adding security doors to our property. I was surprised at the choice of products and solutions that are on the market, each of which has its own pros and cons. I thought other homeowners looking to beef up their security might find it useful to read about what we learned so I set up this blog!
