EXPERIENCE THE SHOWER OVER A BATH REVOLUTION

When it comes to showering in a bath, there are definitely pros and cons to consider. On one hand, a bath-shower combo can be a great space-saving solution for smaller bathrooms or those on a budget. Plus, baths are known for their relaxation benefits, and the option to soak after a long day can be a definite perk.


However, there are also some potential drawbacks to showering in a bath. For one, it can be harder to keep the water contained and prevent splashing outside the tub.

HOW ARE WE KEEPING THE WATER IN THE BATHTUB AND OFF THE FLOOR?


Before we can dive in and soak away the stress of the day, we have to figure out how to keep that water inside the tub. Luckily, there are a variety of options for containing the water in a bath/shower combo. One option is to install a shower curtain, which creates a physical barrier to keep water from escaping. But, who needs to be tangled in a wet, smelly and mouldy shower curtain, that never seems to dry and then after your shower, you have to hang it outside the bath dropping water allover the floor - sort of defeats the purpose don't you think?


Another option is to install a glass shower screen, which not only contains the water but also adds a stylish touch to your bathroom. It's a simple way to transform your space and make it feel more modern and a whole lot more stylish.

SO, LET'S TALK ABOUT ADDING A SHOWER SCREEN TO YOUR BATH


With its sleek lines and modern look, an over bath shower screen can give your bathroom an instant upgrade.


On the upside, a shower screen can keep water contained in the shower area, saving you time and energy on cleaning up puddles and wet floors.


It can also create more visual space in the bathroom, making it feel bigger and more open. Also, because of their solid construction, these shower screens are much more effective at keeping warm air trapped inside the tub, making your bath or shower experience much more comfortable.


Additionally, some people might prefer a separate shower stall for ease of use or accessibility reasons.


Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and what suits your lifestyle and needs best.



TYPES OF OVER BATH SHOWER SCREENS

There are several types of over bath shower screens available, including fixed panels, swing panels and combo of fixed and hinged shower doors.

Each type provides unique benefits, so it’s important to consider each one carefully before making your decision.


1. - we have the MONO Single panel which is the most popular type and offer a classic look with minimal maintenance. The single panel swings both into and out of the bathtub.





2. The CLARO A fixed glass panel is affixed to the wall, and the extra panel swings one way and can close back on itself completely.




3. The DUO

You guessed it - double fold! The main panel has a 180degree swing, while the second panel has a 90 degree swinging action, allowing both to fold out of the way to allow easier access.
