There are a couple of thing you should look into before you decide on the style of your new shower screen.

First and most important is your Budget

Of course, knowing your budget is the most vital thing to consider. However, you would be shocked how many people don’t first check at their budget before deciding which shower screen to purchase. Make sure you don’t make the same mistake!   Choosing an expensive product is never a good idea if you can’t afford it. Glass Pro Install suggests being realistic about your specific budget and ensuring that you stick to that amount.

Second. Bathroom size and screen types

For those who have a small bathroom, a shower screen with clear glass is the most appropriate choice. If you are looking for a simple look and illusion of space – clear glass would be right fit for you. Additionally, a frame-less shower screen is recommended for a small bathroom because the screen has no huge attachments to highlight limited space. A shower screen with tinted or frosted glass panes is best advised for bigger bathrooms. These screens will not affect the proportions of the room.

Glass Types

There are a few glass types available to you:

Clear: Traditional shower doors use clear glass. Which is easy to maintain and allows a full range of light to pass through.

Frosted: For those who desire privacy, frosted glass is a great option. This has a soft, satin-like appearance that only allows soft light to pass. One side will have an etched pattern while the other will be smooth.

Cast: Our cast glass doors are three-dimensional, with unique designs for every door that will make your shower the focal point of the bathroom.

At last. Maintenance.

In purchasing a shower screen, you also need to be mindful of maintenance. For instance, cleaning a clear glass screen is much easier compared to cleaning a frosted screen. Moreover, soap crust may be more evident on frosted shower screens than on clear glass styles. So if you’re looking for shower screens that are easy to clean, then  frame-less is the best option for you as there are no tiny areas where dirt and soap can build up.
