Why You Need To Consider Fully Frameless Shower Screens for Your Bathroom

Your bathroom is a very important part in your home and you will want it to create the best experience in terms of functionality and visual appeal. There are multiple ways you can use to enhance the aesthetic value of your bathroom. Shower screens are excellent features to have in your home and will step to the plate in terms of both functionality and visual appeal. With different types of shower screens to choose from, selecting the right one for your bathroom can be challenging. For this reason, if you are looking for shower screens for your bathroom, here are reasons why you should consider fully frameless glass shower screens

Stronger Glass

Unlike fully framed and semi-frameless shower screens, fully frameless shower screens are usually manufactured with heavy-duty and thicker glass, which is less susceptible to breaking and cracking. The reason for using this type of glass is that the fully frameless shower screens lack the reinforcements of surrounding frames, and this requires the glass used to be strong enough to withstand abuse. For this reason, the resilience of fully frameless shower screens surpasses the other types of shower screens, making it a perfect choice for your bathroom.

Corrosion Free

Typically, glass is corrosion resistant. However, for semi-frameless and fully framed shower screens, you will have to be concerned about corrosion of the metal parts (apart from stainless steel) used as frames and this can increase your maintenance costs. Since fully frameless shower screens do not have these metal reinforcements, you won't have to worry about corrosion and ways of preventing the corrosion.

Visual Appeal

The aesthetic ambience of frameless shower screens is magnificent. The elimination of the reinforcements enhances the sleekness of the shower screens, which add a tasteful and classic feature to your bathroom. Besides, the frameless nature of the full glass enclosure of these shower screens can increase the sight lines inside your bathroom, creating the illusion of a more open or larger space. Therefore, using fully frameless shower screens can render a luxurious style to your bath space.

Maintenance Is Easy

Fully frameless shower screens will require minimal components during installation. The absence of metal frames and edges on fully frameless shower screens will make your cleaning very simple. In addition, fully frameless shower screens have no dead areas such as nooks where soap scum and mould can build up. For this reason, a squeegee would be enough to give your shower screens a quick and thorough cleaning.   

About Me
Getting some more privacy

I love how much light our house gets, but the people who were living before us must have been very open with the whole street knowing what they were up to at all times. I've never lived somewhere where so many rooms have really large windows - including the bathroom! We are slowly getting the glass replaced from plain glass panes into frosted and patterned glass so that we keep getting all of that lovely light in but so that the whole neighbourhood doesn't get to see us. This blog has before and after picture of the rooms in our house as we do the glass replacements.
