Bathroom Shower Screens

When it comes to bathroom shower screens, there are no end of choices to suit every renovation budget & style preference.

 

Tips for Choosing Bathroom Shower Screens

 
Below are four of the most common types of shower screens available.

  • Full framed shower screen.
  • Semi frameless shower screen.
  • Frameless shower screen.
  • Shower rail and curtain.

 

1. Fully framed shower screens

 
These are generally the cheapest of the glass screen options. They primarily consist of a aluminium frame that runs around each piece of glass. i.e. top, bottom, doors and all frames.

Whilst this option may be one of the cheaper ones, it’s also considered one of the most watertight (something to consider if you have small children).

This style of screen can also be purchased pre made, online from various stores. And if your handy, it can also be installed on a budget. Here is an example of an online store that sells this style of screen – Aqua Bathrooms.

Some more examples can be found here.

 

2. Semi Frameless Screens

 
Just as it sounds, these style of screens only have a partial frame – usually on the top and bottom of the glass, with a frameless door.

These look a little more aesthetically pleasing to the eye, and are usually pretty cost effective.

Again this style of screen can be purchased off the shelf (or online) but I generally get these screen custom made by a professional who will also handle the installation.

Here are a few examples.

3. Frameless Glass Screens

 
This is more your designer style of screen and looks the most visually impressive.

These screens are basically all glass with just a few fixing brackets and hinges. They are also silicone sealed around all joints along the floor and wall.

But with all wow factor fixtures, they come with a price. This style is the most expensive of all the options, and funnily enough is probably the least waterproof due to its design.

Here are some examples for you to see.

 

4. Shower Curtain and rail

 
Other than the glass options, this is your most cost effective screen. That said its also terrible for containing water, so keep that in mind.

As far as installation goes, if your handy with a hammer drill this could also be something that you chose to install yourself and save a few dollars.

Here is an example of how cheap they are on Amazon.

 

So there you have it! These are the 4 major styles of shower screens available that will cover you from a budget bathroom makeover, to a high end designer bathroom.

 

Now lets move on to our last tip in this section, Stage 4: Construction – Joinery.

 

To recap, the 5 Stage Renovation Process will guide you through the exact steps I use as a professional builder when working on home improvement projects.

If you have any questions let me know – I’m always happy to help!

Enjoy your renovation.

All the best,
