If you would like to remodel your bathroom, but you have not had time to do so, you might want to consider something that is a little faster to do. People that have shower curtains might want to switch over to shower screens which can transform the way that your bathroom looks. With a traditional shower, if it is a tub shower combination, there is typically a shower curtain to provide privacy and also prevent the water from getting out. Instead, you might want to fully enclose the shower using shower screens which can be transparent or semi-transparent, depending upon what you need.
Shower curtains have been available for decades, and when people choose them, they are typically looking for certain patterns or styles. There is the bar that goes across that allows you to slide it back and forth when you are entering and exiting, something that is very common in bathrooms today. If you have a tub shower combination, this is probably the best choice, but if you have a single shower unit, shower screens might be your best alternative. These are transparent, or semi-transparent, and they also come in three different styles which you can choose from, whether you decide to order these online or pick them up from a local store. Let’s look at the different types of shower screens that you can buy, and how installing one of these can help you change, literally transform, the way your bathroom looks.
Different Types Of Shower Screens
There are a few different types that are available including those that are framed, semi-frameless, and those that are completely frameless that are for sale. Those that are framed will show the actual structure of the screens, which is something that many people like, making them feel less transparent. Semi-frameless are a very clever construction which is both practical and can minimize the amount of water leakage from any shower unit. Essentially, the frame around the shower screens is very minimal, making it look nearly transparent from every vantage point. Frameless have completely eliminated the lines that you typically see on the shower screen, leaving nothing but the glass and the handle that you pull to open and close the door visible. It just depends on what style you are looking for, and what you believe will completely transform your bathroom from something that is very common with the shower curtain to something very modern that most expensive homes have in them today.
How Do You Get The Best Deals?
Most people will start by taking a trip down to their local Bunnings, or similar store, that provides home-improvement materials. However, the lowest prices and the best quality you’ll find in South East Queensland is from Screens’n’More (see their facebook page). Most of these will cost anywhere between $700 and $1200, depending upon the size and material that is used. It also depends on whether it is framed, frameless, or whether you would prefer a semi-framed model which is all dependent on upon your personal preference.
After you have shopped online for a few minutes, you should be able to locate several of these shower screens that are appealing to you. It is always recommended that you contact a professional installer, or if you are using a nationwide home-improvement store, they will be able to come out and do this for you. Once it is installed, you’ll wonder why you never had one before because they are so elegant and unique. It will add a bit of class to your bathroom, something that can be done in an afternoon, and transform any bathroom into something that is modern and chic.
