When choosing among a vast selection of bath screens, it is important to properly identify the right type that fits perfectly onto your current bathtub or bathing space. There are different types of bath screens available, from fixed to swing, folding and sliding, made from different types of materials that include glass in clear or frosted options, and acrylic. Each bath screen serves different functions and aesthetic purposes that can change the look and feel of any bathroom space.
In terms of practicality, the paneled design of the bath screen makes it easier to clean than a shower curtain. Cleaning with bleach after every few uses is advisable to keep your bath screen in top form and free from mildew and mold buildup. Bath screens may also incorporate additions for a better bathing experience such as handrails or holding trays for bath products. With its practicality and ability to be customized easily, the advantages of choosing a bath screen over a shower curtain are numerous. There is, however, one obvious disadvantage: its high price.
At present, frameless glass bath screens are one of the trends that we see in modern bathrooms with some models coming in curved shapes. A lot of households used to have bath screens with aluminum or plastic frames. Today, manufacturers are producing bath screens without frames to increase visibility, have fewer mechanisms and get that modern look. It is also more practical to have a bath screen with no frame as water can’t sit in the rail, preventing the buildup of mold and dirt and making it easier to clean and maintain.
