Glass Shower Screens

The bathrooms in your Cambridge home need an upgrade and you are thinking of installing glass shower screens. Glass shower screens are one of the best ways to build shower cubicles – not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they are long lasting, easy to maintain and they make small showers look spacious. Your project to install glass shower screens can go pretty smoothly if you prepare adequately. What does preparation for this kind of installation involve? There are several things you ought to do.

First is to decide the kind of glass shower screens that are best for your bathrooms. Do you want frameless glass, or do you want glass that is supported by frames? They both have their pros and cons. Frameless glass is great because it has an uninterrupted look. if you are really after aesthetic appeal maybe this is the best way for you to go. However, the problem with frameless glass is that because it doesn’t have seals water leaks out of the shower which makes the bathroom floor wet. After each shower you will have to take a minute or two to dry off the floor. Framed glass may not have the appeal of uninterrupted glass but the seals help to keep your floors dry.

This is not the only design feature that you have to make a decision about. You should also think about whether you would like to have clear glass, frosted glass or etched glass. Clear glass is great but the only problem with it is that you lose all privacy until the shower steams up. Frosted glass provides privacy and he frosting adds a level of toughness that you may not find in ordinary tempered glass. Etched glass is the same – you will get privacy, but you have to pay quite a bit to have designs etched. You can also choose coloured glass – it is all really up to you.

Once you have decided on the kind of glass shower screens you want you can then think about your budget. How much are you willing to spend? Don’t just think about the glass panels – you should consider everything that will go into putting up the shower screens. Based on your budget you may have to revise your design choices.

Now you have a fairly good idea of the kind of glass shower screens you would like to have installed and how much you are willing to spend. It is time for you to find a suitable glass vendor. Find one who is knowledgeable about glass and who is willing to work with you until your project is completed.
