Shower screen designs have undergone some remarkable changes in recent years. One of these changes involves the use of glass. In fact, there are now three styles of glass shower screens that you can choose from. Whether you are renovating your bathroom or building a new one, look no further than these options: framed, semi-framed, and frameless.
Below is a brief overview of each one:
- Framed shower screen – With this variety, the glass panel is enclosed within a frame, which is usually made of aluminium. Framed shower screens have been widely used over the years. Recently, however, this type of shower screen has started to give way to more contemporary ones: frameless and semi-frameless varieties. In spite of this development, framed shower screens are still the choice of many homeowners because they are reliable and versatile.
- Semi-frameless shower screen – This type of shower screen offers the best of both worlds. While it also has a frame, it is not as obvious as that of a fully framed type. Semi-frameless shower screens are very affordable yet more pleasing to look at than framed styles. This is why it is the design of choice among those who need to spend less, but want a stylish bathroom. Made of toughened glass, these shower screens can withstand the pressure of daily use and can last a long time.
- Frameless shower screen – If you want to build a more sophisticated bathroom, then this is the shower screen for you. Frameless shower screens are considered revolutionary mainly due to its all-glass structure. Since it does not have any means of support, a frameless glass system is designed to be seven times stronger than ordinary glass. These shower screens are also easy to clean. You can just wipe down the entire glass panel without so much effort!
