Choosing the Perfect Shower Screen for Your BathroomJuly 27, 2023
Which Shower screen will fit your bathroom best?
Custom Bathroom Renovations Sydney have a specialist Glazier custom make your shower screen to fit your space.
Fully Framed Shower Screen
A fully framed shower screen features a frame around the entire perimeter of the 4mm thick toughened glass panel, with an outward swinging opening door. The frame is available in white and chrome, but powder coating can be arranged to match the bathroom fittings. Fully framed shower screens are affordable and durable. They can also be customised to fit any shower size or shape.
A semi-frameless shower screen features a frame around the perimeter of the 6mm thick, toughened glass panel, but not around the outward swinging opening door itself. The frame is available in chrome, black, white, gunmetal, brushed gold, brushed nickel, champagne, matt silver, or polished gold to match bathroom fittings. Semi-frameless shower screens are a popular choice for bathrooms because they provide a modern and sleek look, while still offering the durability, strength, and practicality of a fully framed screen. They are also easier to clean without the frame around the door.
A frameless shower screen does not have any visible framing around the 10mm thick toughened glass panels, with a pivot door. Instead, the glass panels are fixed in place with brackets that are attached directly to the wall and floor. The brass hardware is available in a range of colours to suit bathroom fittings. The result is a sleek and modern look that can create the impression of a larger, more open bathroom space. A frameless shower screen is easy to clean, as there are no frames to trap dirt and grime, making it a good choice for busy households. If selecting a frameless shower screen, consider that you can expect some water to escape while showering, however, there are ways to minimise the amount.
A single panel shower screen consists of a single sheet of 10mm thick toughened glass with brackets attached directly to the wall and floor. The brass hardware is available in a range of colours to suit bathroom fittings. A single panel shower screen is ultra-modern and gives an amazing sense of spaciousness. They are also ideal for accessibility requirements and are easy to clean. There are size requirements in regard to the space and screen itself, so this is something to discuss with your trades or designer. A curved panel can make a beautiful feature.
Frameless Sliding Shower Screen
A frameless sliding shower screen encloses the shower without any visible frames around the shower, with a sliding opening door. The toughened glass is 10mm in thickness. The brass hardware is available in different colours to suit bathroom fittings. No frame does make cleaning a breeze. This is an ideal solution for space-saving whilst adding a sleek and modern finish to the new bathroom. This shower screen is also available in a semi-frameless option.
Contour Shower Screen:
A contour shower screen has a frame around the border of the toughened 6mm glass attaching it to the walls and floor, with a frameless pivot door that can open inwards and outward. The frame is available in chrome, black, white, gunmetal grey, brushed gold, brushed nickel, champagne, matt silver, polished gold to match bathroom fittings. The modern frameless door makes cleaning favourable.
