    What Are Shower Screens?

    UPDATE: Shower Screens are very difficult to find for sale on amazon anymore. We are keeping the information about them here to help you decide if you are wanting to install one in your bathroom. Many home hardware places sell these, especially those geared towards bathroom design.

    Although shower screens have been used in Europe for many years, they are still a fairly new choice in North America. Shower screens, just like shower curtains, come in various sizes and styles and therefore, choosing the best one will depend on the size of your bathroom and your personal taste.

    Discussing shower screens may seem foreign to you, because as Westerners, we are so accustomed to using shower curtains, but being aware of other choices is always a good thing.

    If you already have a bath installed in your bathroom, space may be limited, especially if you wanted to add a separate, walk in shower enclosure. This is a common problem in small bathrooms therefore, bath shower screens could be a solution. In this case, simple over bath shower screens could serve you well.

    These shower screens for baths are shorter than regular shower screens that would be used in a stand alone, walk in shower area. This is obviously, because you will not need the same height when fitting shower screens over the bath because the distance from the top of the bath to the ceiling will be less.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Bath Shower Screen

    As shown in the example above, shower screens for baths sit directly on top of the bath edge and gets its support from the bottom aligning itself on the bath and also the hinges. These are very sleek and almost unnoticeable on the wall.

    You can generally purchase glass shower screens in clear glass, or for more privacy, you may prefer frosted shower screens.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    In the example above, this particular shower screen has a swing door of glass, but you may prefer to purchase a folding bath screen.  Purchasing folding glass shower screens may make it easier if you need to get children in and out of the bath. These over bath shower screens folds away against the wall when not in use so it’s out of the way.

    If you have the luxury of having a walk in shower, then walk in shower screens may be more in line with what you are looking for. Walk in shower screens also have a few variations to choose from. You can choose from:

    • Frameless Shower Screens
    • Sliding Shower Screens
    • Semi Frameless Shower Screens

    The difference between frameless  shower screens and semi frameless shower screens is the amount of hardware which shows in the finished product.

    As you can see, a shower screen can come in a variety of styles and sizes. Many people buy glass shower screens when they are renovating their bathrooms. This is what gives the bathroom a zen type of modern look. You can even purchase corner shower screens if you wish to save space.

    If you are looking for cheap shower screens we’ll be surprised if you find any, but of course the term “cheap” can mean different things to different people.

    If you cannot afford the luxury of glass shower screens then perhaps purchasing an extra nice shower curtain could give you the feeling of luxury without as much cost. The decision is up to you.

    Which Shower Curtain Hooks Are Best For You?

    With such a wide variety, how on earth are you going to choose the shower curtain hooks that are right for you?

    Let’s look for a few clues

    One of the first things you may want to consider when choosing your shower curtain rings or hooks is the type of finishes you already have on the existing items in your bathroom. Large things such as your bathroom faucets and mirrors etc. will give you a good clue as to what type of finish you may want.

    If, for instance, you have chrome faucets, then having oil rubbed bronze shower curtain rings will probably clash. Of course, if you are planning on changing to an oil rubbed bronze bathroom faucet and replacing your towel holders etc. then oil rubbed bronze shower curtain hooks could give your bathroom a classy look.

    Which type of metal do you prefer: Gold, brushed nickle, brass, bronze, oil rubbed bronze or stainless steel? Your preference and budget will help you determine your best choice.

    Perhaps, the budget is a little tight or you might want to use plastic shower curtain rings in a child’s bathroom. Shower curtain rings made of plastic, would be a very good choice for a kid’s bathroom because they are not only inexpensive, but they are also very durable. Plastic shower curtain rings also come in a wide variety of colors. Popular colors for a kid’s bathroom could be the primary colors such as:
