Find out why they're all the rage and how they can transform your bathroom experience.
Renovations are an exciting time for any homeowner, and they provide a great opportunity to put your own stamp of style on the space. One way you can do this in your bathroom is by replacing (or upgrading) your shower screen - and fixed panel shower screens are proving extremely popular.
These aren't just aesthetically pleasing, compared to more traditional sliding shower screen doors, shower panels offer plenty of practical benefits too.
In this blog post, we'll explore why fixed panel shower screens have become so sought after - and uncover some key points for renovators or home owners looking to update their bathroom with a new glass panel enclosure!
Let's talk fixed panel shower screens
So, if you're tired of dealing with shower curtains that stick to your skin or that never quite seem to keep water from splashing onto your bathroom floor? It might be time to upgrade to fixed panel shower screens.
These sleek, modern bathroom features offer a range of benefits that make them a popular choice for many homeowners. Not only do they provide a clean, streamlined look that can help to open up your bathroom space, but they also offer added durability, safety, and ease of cleaning that simply can't be matched by traditional shower curtains.
Why fixed glass panel shower screens?
Fixed panel shower screens are a popular choice for those who want to add a touch of sophistication and modernity to their bathroom. These types of shower screens are characterised by their permanent fixture, featuring a single, solid piece of glass that is affixed to the wall of the shower enclosure.
Key features that distinguish fixed panel shower screens from other shower screens include their sleek design, unobstructed views, and ease of maintenance. These screens are ideal for those who want a minimalist look or who have limited space in their bathroom. (read our blog post on showers screens for small spaces) Plus, with no moving parts, they tend to require less maintenance than other types of shower screens.
Traditional or modern bathroom style?
The world of design is constantly evolving, with traditional approaches giving way to modern aesthetics. One area where this trend is particularly evident is in the design of shower screens.
Modern shower screen designs are sleek and minimalist, favouring clean lines and a seamless look.
In contrast, traditional designs often feature ornate details and elaborate patterns that bring an air of opulence to a bathroom. Here is where you get creative with various combinations of glass styles like traditional cathedral or satinlite glass with coloured frames to create your own individual bathroom design.
However, regardless of the design style, a fixed panel shower screen is a popular choice that offers a clean, fresh and open feel to any style of bathroom design including modern, rustic, country or opulent & luxurious.
How can a fixed panel shower screen increase home value?
Installing fixed panel shower screens can significantly increase the value of your home. Not only do they add a touch of elegance to your bathroom, but they also provide several practical benefits.
One of the most significant advantages of shower screens over curtains or doors is their longevity. Shower screens are typically made with high-quality materials that can last for years, making them an excellent investment for any homeowner.
All Flexi Showers frameless fixed panel shower screens are made with 10mm clear toughened glass, while framed shower panels feature either 6mm toughened or 6.38mm laminate glass, which comply with all necessary Australian Standards.
Furthermore, their ease of maintenance and durability makes them appealing to potential home buyers who are looking for a luxurious bathroom experience without the hassle of regular upkeep.
When it comes to single panel shower screens, there are main options to consider: framed and frameless fixed panel shower screens. Both style shower screens are perfect for keeping water contained in the shower and preventing slippery bathroom floors.
The framed fixed panel shower screen offers a more traditional look, with a metal frame providing structure to the screen. Your choice of frame colour can make a significant difference to the final look of your bathroom, from bolder black shower panels to opulent gold framed screen. Framed shower panels can really help you make a statement.
On the other hand, the frameless option provides a more modern and sleek look, with the glass panels held together by discreet hardware.
Both options offer great benefits, so it really comes down to personal preference and the style of your bathroom.
Easily Customise your Fixed panel Shower Screen
Fixed panel shower screens come in a range of sizes and shapes, so you can easily find one to fit your bathroom space.
In addition, they can be customised according to your specific needs. For example, if you have an unusual size shower enclosure or need to make the most of limited floor space, all you need is a tailored glass panel solution to work within your bathroom.
You can also choose from a wide range of glass options, such as clear glass panels, obscure glass or even frosted for added privacy.
The height of your fixed shower panel is easily customised to suit your bathroom - whether you have super high ceilings, sloping ceilings, want to match the line of a particular wall tile, or simply want to add more height for a luxurious look.
Let's Not Forget Over Bath Shower Screens
These are a great space saver and feature the option for a single fixed panel that sits on the edge of your bath or multiple swing panels as well.
Upgrading your bathroom with a fixed glass panel shower screen is an exciting decision.
From traditional designs to modern, frameless solutions, the options are endless. Installing one of these beautiful shower screens can add aesthetic value to your home, and depending on the quality and style you choose, it could even increase its worth.
However, as with any major home renovation project, there are pros and cons that must be considered before making an investment in a fixed panel shower screen.
