Shower screens are helpful because they maintain cleanliness and hygiene in your bathroom. They are also elegant looking and increase the overall aesthetic appeal of your room. Here are some essential tips to help you pick the right one.
Work within your budget
Consider the range of prices available and choose a screen within your budget. If you go over a manageable price range, you will have a more challenging time completing the rest of your bathroom with quality material.
That said, you shouldn’t just choose the cheapest one – it’s important to balance cost and quality.
Check out our range of affordable shower screens made from the highest quality materials and engineered to give you maximum durability.
Choose the right size for your space
Once you’ve figured out how much you can spend, consider the amount of space so you can choose an appropriately-sized shower screen. Measure the area inside your shower and the space that surrounds it.
If your shower is small, a frameless screen will work better for you, preferably with clear glass. A frameless screen easily fits into a small space and doesn’t have any attachments that make your shower feel crowded. The glass also reflects light, making your room appear larger than it is.
If space isn’t an issue, you can choose any frame you want and various glass types. Whether you choose a fully framed, frameless, semi-framed, or semi-frameless screen with plain, tinted, or frosted glass will depend entirely on your taste.
Also, consider the screen’s shape. Sliding or bi-fold doors give more accessibility and work best for smaller spaces, while pivoted doors or screens with hinges are only suitable for large bathrooms. You can find a range of options from Betta Wardrobes and Shower Screens to choose from.
Choose high-quality glass
It’s also essential to choose high-grade glass with excellent quality that meets safety standards in Australia. Poor quality glass on your screen is a sure recipe for disaster, especially if you have younger children. Plus, avoid the inconvenience of having to replace your glass every now and then.
Choose a design that is easy to maintain
Select a style that won’t give you a headache to maintain. The glass should be easily accessible and cleanable.
Side Note: To maintain your shower glasses and keep them looking new, make sure to keep them clean. Ideally, wipe the glass down every time you use it. Use good cleaning solutions, either homemade or store-bought, and regularly scrub the glass. Remember to clean the accessories and hard-to-reach places too.
