Choosing a new shower screen

While a separate bath and shower is a dream for many homeowners, it is just not practical in all bathrooms. Some are simply too small, like the en-suite, while others do not have the right shape for both fixtures. But you don’t necessarily need to choose one or the other when you could opt for a shower installation over the bath, and a protective shower screen. But what should you consider when choosing a shower screen? And how can you be sure to make the right choice for your bathroom? Well, here at RWM Plumbing and Gas, we are bathroom installation specialists. And this is our guide to everything you should know about the different shower screen options for your bath/shower combination.

What is a shower screen?

So, first of all, what is a shower screen? Well, a shower screen is designed to fit to the ceiling, wall, or top of the bath itself, and provides a solid barrier protecting your bathroom from water damage while showering in the bath. This can be more effective than a shower curtain, as it is much easier to clean and will not mold.

What are the important considerations when choosing a new shower screen?

There are several important considerations to take into account when deciding on your new shower screen. These include:

  • Style and design- choose a shower screen that matches the style of bathroom, either contemporary or traditional, neutral or rustic, for the best possible results.
  • Practicality- your shower screen can be bi-fold, so it can be pushed together and slid across to the wall, when not in use, or it can be hinged to open too. You can even have a simple solid shower screen. Consider the option that will be more practical and functional for you and your household.
