8 Reasons To Choose Frameless Shower Screens For Your Bathroom
Renovating your bathroom takes a lot of planning. There’s so much choice involved in creating the perfect space. Here at Ultimate Frameless Glass, we offer a range of shower screens in Dandenong to make your bathroom look amazing.
Frameless shower screens are becoming more and more popular with homeowners looking to add a modern edge to their bathrooms. Their clean lines and minimalist style add a touch of glamour to your design.
If you’re considering whether to install a frameless shower screen, here are eight great reasons to install one in your bathroom.
What is a frameless shower screen?
Standard shower screens have a visible, metal frame and fixings that are attached to the walls, ceiling or floor, whereas a frameless shower door does not need this support structure.
The frame is there to provide rigidity and provide support to the glass, which is often thinner than the glass in a frameless shower.
The design of a frameless screen is also very different. They are made from panels of thick tempered glass and unlike a standard design, they don’t need the metal support structure.
1. There are so many styles to choose from
The clean, minimalist design will add a touch of indulgence to any style of bathroom. There is a range of styles, colours and finishes to choose from for your shower screen. From a fixed screen at the side of your bath to a fully enclosed walk-in shower.
2. Easy to install
A frameless system is easier and quicker to install because it doesn’t need to be bolted to the wall or fit together.
3. Your bathroom will look more spacious
Bathrooms tend to be one of the smallest rooms in the home. Your bathroom should be designed and laid out to maximize the available space. A standard shower can make the room look smaller due to the thick frame enclosure. By installing a frameless shower screen, you’ll give the illusion of clean, unbroken space. A glass screen will also let any natural light through uninhibited, unlike a shower curtain.
4. They offer enhanced access
The design of a frameless shower screen allows the hinges to work in both directions, meaning that your shower door can open inwards or outwards. This gives you more options on where to install your shower.
The frameless design also allows a wider door that can allow wheelchairs.
5. Easier to clean
Keeping your bathroom clean shouldn’t be a chore. A frameless shower screen is far easier to clean than a standard framed one. Usually, soap scum and grime will accumulate in all of the small parts of your frame. This can look unsightly and be really difficult to keep clean. A frameless system has far fewer places for dirt to build up, so are easier to clean and maintain. Simply wash it with a shower or glass cleaner when it needs it.
6. Built to last and easy to repair
As there are fewer component parts in a frameless shower scream, there are fewer things that can go wrong, meaning that you can enjoy it for longer. Your shower screen should last for many years. But if yours does develop a fault, it is relatively easy to fix. Standard, framed screens need replacement parts to be sent from the original manufacturer. You aren’t necessarily bound to one manufacturer for replacement parts.
7. Safer than traditional glass screens
The glass used in our frameless products is much safer than the glass you would find in an ordinary shower screen. It is a tempered safety glass that is a minimum of 10mm thick. You can be confident that the glass will stand up to frequent use and the demands of family life.
8. The ultimate in luxury
If you’re looking to add a touch of designer quality to your bathroom, a frameless shower screen is a perfect way to do this. Not only can you create a beautiful walk-in shower, but also a walk through shower too. Perfect if you have space and are serious about your indulgent shower time.
