Bath shower screens are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and panel formations. You can choose from a single fully-framed fixed panel, folding screens that can be concertinaed back to the wall, sleek frameless models and decorative printed and etched designs. Oblong designs with a curved top edge or sail-shaped panels look softer.
Lighting is often overlooked in bathrooms, but your budget doesn’t need to stretch to a professionally designed lighting scheme. Just fit a dimmer switch, so you can transform the mood at a twist of a button, and buy a mirror with lights built into the sides. Lighting around a mirror should come from the sides, as well as from above, to avoid shadows on your face when applying make-up or shaving.
Making over a busy family bathroom? A glass bath shower screen is a smart and practical choice. Designed to fix to the wall and over your bath, it’s easier to clean than a shower curtain, and will provide more of a sense of light and space, even the smallest room.
If you are going to use tiles, choose non-porous bathroom tiles like ceramic or porcelain. Porous tiles, such as slate, marble and limestone need sealing every few months to prevent water damage. Only use floor tiles specifically for bathrooms on the floor so they aren’t slippery.
