Shower in a bath - the pros and cons
Are you considering installing a shower in your bathtub but not sure if it's worth it? Let's weigh the pros and cons together.
When it comes to maximising space in your bathroom design, a shower in a bath can be a great option. With this design, you can have both a bathtub and a shower in the same area, which can be especially helpful if you have a small or narrow bathroom or ensuite.
Additionally, a shower in the bath is more economical than fitting a separate shower cubicle when it comes to installation and maintenance costs....and we know how expensive tapware can be.
Of course there's the enjoyment of having an in-bath shower experience that can't be beaten! Shower in a bath option allows you to have the best of both worlds - the relaxing experience of soaking in a bath and the convenience of a quick shower.
On the other hand, some people find it inconvenient to have to step over the side of the bath in order to get into the shower which can be a hazard for elderly people or young children.
Above all, we need to ensure the water stays right where it should be - in the bath and flowing away. So, let's look at Over Bath Shower Screens options. There are many different designs to choose from, including single swing panel screens up to multiple fold shower screen panels.
What types of over bath shower screens are available?
There are a few different types of bath shower screens available depending on your budget, style preferences, and practical needs.
If you're after a budget-friendly option, you can opt for a basic frameless screen. If you have limited space, a dual fixed and folding combination bath screen can help maximise the area you have.
Whatever your needs, doing some research and considering your options can help you find the perfect over bath shower screen for your bathroom.
Fixed bath shower screen
If you're tired of dealing with shower curtains that keep sticking to your skin or the bathtub, it might be time to consider a fixed bath shower screen with a single folding panel.
These screens are a stylish and practical solution to keep your bathroom dry while you shower. A fixed bath shower screen is typically made of toughened glass, making them easy to clean and resistant to scratches. A main panel is affixed securely to the wall, with a second panel that swings 90degrees to allow easy access. They come in a range of sizes and designs, so you can find the perfect one to complement your bathroom decor.
Multi fold bath shower screen
Thinking of a multi fold swing or hinged panel bath shower screen?
Not only do they look sleek and modern, but the hinged design allows for easy access in and out of the shower, making it a great choice for those with mobility issues. Additionally, they can create an illusion of a larger bathroom, as the hinged panel design allows more light reflection which gives off a sense of spaciousness.
If you're looking for a more spacious solution, multi panel bath screens are the way to go. These screens usually consist of two shower panels that can be adjusted depending on the size of your bath. Multi panel bath screens are particularly helpful for longer baths, as they create an water proof enclosure around a larger shower area keeping excess water from splashing out of the bathtub, yet can be moved out of the way for easier access.
