Bath screens – Love or Loathe?

bath screens

Bath screens are an incredibly functional component in many smaller bathrooms. They eliminate shower water splashes and separate a bath area from the rest of the bathroom. Nevertheless, bath screens are one particular product that you either love or loathe. And this holds true for many of my customers here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre.

Like most things, there are valid reasons to side either way. But whether you love or loathe bath screens, they do serve to be a very practical addition to many homes, especially those that have only the one bathroom.

Today, we’ll look at just what the pros and cons of bath screens are. I’ll also showcase some the latest designs in bath screens so you can decide whether you love or loathe them – you may be surprised to see how far the designs have home!

Pros of bath screens

Bath screens offer several benefits and this is why many wouldn’t do without one. First of all, they now feature incredibly modern designs that can actually help transform a bathroom into a contemporary space.

Moreover, a clear bath screen allows light to pass through it which make a bathroom look much more spacious. This effect is best achieved when a bath screen is paired with a light background.

Like I mentioned, bath screens prevent shower water from splashing out of a bath area. This helps you keep your bathroom dry, even just after having taken a bath. Furthermore, bath screens are incredibly easy to clean and maintain.

Unlike past designs, bath screens of today are available in a range of configurations, including sliding screens, bi-fold screens and framed and frameless variants. This allows you to choose and define the overall style and look of your bathroom.

Finally, bath screens are designed to last a long time and can even make a property more desirable when it comes to re-sale.

Cons of bath screens

While bath screens certainly boast some wonderful advantages, they do suffer from a few drawbacks. Firstly, they are much more expensive their counterparts, the shower curtain. The investment required to purchase a shower screen and have it installed is also significantly higher.

Additionally, bath screens, just like shower screens can collect soap scum and grim and therefore require constant cleaning. However, I do have to note that our range of shower screens all feature an AllClear coating, so such scum and grim is kept at bay.

Another drawback that makes make loath show screens is their design. However, as mentioned, shower screens have come a long way in design advancements. If you haven’t seen today’s designs then I urge you to do so, you may just love them after all.

These are some of the main reasons why some people just loathe bath screens. However, in my opinion, the benefits offered by them outweigh the disadvantages by far. All you have to do is maintain your screen and it will definitely turn out to be a worthy investment. Also, unless your bathroom is really limited in space, a bath screen will be a practical and elegant addition to it.
