The beauty of frosted glass is its ability to brighten up a room without taking away from its character and personality. By scattering the available light, frosted glass shower screens can help to create an inviting atmosphere that feels open, yet private.

Frosted shower screen glass is made of toughened safety glass and available in framed, fixed panel & semi-frameless shower screen designs. So, whether you’re looking for something sleek and modern or more traditional, there’s sure to be an option to suit your taste and budget.

Privacy


One of the biggest advantages of frosted glass is that it provides an increased level of privacy. Unlike clear glass, frosted glass obscures the view of the person taking a shower, making it a better choice for those who want a little more privacy.


This is especially important if you have a shared bathroom or if you’re hosting guests in your home. With frosted glass, you don't have to worry about feeling exposed while taking a shower.



Tips for getting the perfect balance of privacy and style when choosing your frosted glass shower screen:

  • Experiment with different levels of opacity to find the right balance for your bathroom.

  • Consider the type of shower screen frame that will complement the overall look and feel of your space.

  • Think about how much natural light you want in your bathroom – frosted glass provides a great way to diffuse light without sacrificing privacy.

  • Consider where you want to position the screen – will it be better suited in a corner or along an entire wall?

  • Make sure to measure the space accurately before installing your shower screen. This will help ensure that you get a snug fit with no gaps between the frames and glass.


When positioning a frosted glass shower screen, it’s important to consider its placement in relation to windows, doorways and other openings in your bathroom.


As frosted glass is opaque, you want to make sure that any existing natural light sources are not blocked out. Is your shower next to a window? This is where frosted glass really comes into its own, allowing you to enjoy the privacy of a shower without sacrificing any natural light. As well ensuring privacy from the outside,


If you’re installing a frosted glass shower screen in front of an existing window, be sure to take into account any potential reflections that might occur. Make sure your choice of glass is not too reflective – otherwise the light may bounce back and create bright spots.


As with any choice of shower screen glass, when positioning your shower screen, make sure there's enough room for the door to swing open without hitting any fixtures or furniture. This will help ensure that you have plenty of space to enjoy your shower, while also keeping the bathroom safe and accessible for everyone in the home.


With a few simple considerations, you can achieve a perfect balance of style and privacy with your frosted glass shower screen.

Caring for Your Frosted Glass Shower Screen

Another advantage of frosted glass is that it requires less maintenance than clear glass. Clear glass shows every speck of dirt and water stains, which can be difficult to remove. Frosted glass, on the other hand, hides these imperfections, making it easier to clean and maintain. You won't have to worry about cleaning your shower screen as often, which means you can spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your bathroom.

Caring for your frosted glass shower screen is an important part of keeping it looking like new.


The nonporous surface means it’s resistant to dirt and grime build-up, making it easy to clean. Use a soft cloth dampened with soapy water to remove any soap scum or hard water deposits.


For tougher stains, use a non-abrasive cleaner such as vinegar or baking soda.

Energy Efficiency


Frosted glass also has the added benefit of being more energy efficient. It prevents heat from escaping your shower area, which means you’ll use less energy to keep your bathroom warm. This can help reduce your energy bills and ensure that your bathroom stays cozy and comfortable throughout the year.


Shower Screen Safety

Of course, safety should always be top of mind when it comes to installing a new shower screen. Make sure the frame is securely attached and that all hinges, handles or locks are tightly fitted.
