Why Your Old Shower Screen Could Be Holding Your Bathroom Back

About Me
Advice for Home Extensions, Additions and Adaptations

Thanks for checking out my blog! My name's Olivia, and I'll be sharing my advice about construction and contractors here. When my husband and I first decided to move in together, we didn't fall in love with any of the homes on the market so we decided to build our own. We learned a lot about construction and contractors during that time, but our journey wasn't over yet. Over the years, we've had multiple changes made to our custom home, including extensions to accommodate new babies, adaptations for in-laws moving in and even an outbuilding studio for my son's music production endeavours. As you can imagine, I've had to do a lot of research on home building over the years, and now I'd love to pass that advice on to anyone else who needs it. Look around—I'm sure you'll find something useful.


Why Your Old Shower Screen Could Be Holding Your Bathroom Back

When it comes to renovations and upgrading your home, the last feature you probably think about is your shower screen. After all, it is just a utilitarian piece of equipment that doesn't seem like it would need replacement frequently. However, the wrong type of shower screens can make your bathroom feel smaller, dirtier and more enclosed than it needs to be. One simple upgrade to a modern, glass shower screen can make all the difference and really brighten up the rest of your room. Here are a few reasons how this upgrade could change your perspective on your bathroom.

Plastic Shower Screens Are Outdated

If you still have a plastic shower screen in your main bathroom, or perhaps not even a screen at all but a curtain, then you are putting up with a very outdated piece of equipment. Plastic shower screens creak, bend, diffuse light strangely and just, in general, feel quite cheap when you walk into a room. A bathroom should be a luxurious experience where the ritual of cleaning and pampering yourself is not just experienced but enjoyed. Glass shower screens are sturdy, elegant and blend in so naturally that you will wonder why you never had one before.


If you want to go the extra mile and get a premium product, why not consider getting a frameless glass shower screen. Not only are these every bit as strong as their framed counterparts, but without the border, they feel like an organic material that was shaped personally to fit your bathroom and no one else's. They are also easy to clean, as you know just how annoying it can be to scrub the metal corners to try and get rid of all that dirt and grime that has built up over many uses.


When you consider just how much other renovations can set you back, upgrading your shower screens to a better product that will last you far longer is comparatively cheap. It also raises the overall value of your home by much more than it costs to install, which is another reason why many people who are considering selling will install them before they list their home. It takes just part of a day to upgrade this shower screen, and then you can begin to enjoy a cleaner and more simplistic design whenever you need to cool off or get ready for the day. 

If you want to upgrade your shower screen, talk to a supplier in your area.
