These days, everyone wants to make their homes pop, and one of the rooms that sometimes gets neglected is the bathroom. Let’s be honest. Aside from showers and nature’s calls, bathrooms don’t have a lot of uses, and because of this, they may not always get the decorative attention that other rooms in the home do. One of the biggest eyesores in any bathroom is that nasty, mouldy shower curtain. Now, that curtain has been largely replaced by shower screens, which are a big improvement but still not quite what they need to be. That’s where frameless shower screens come in. They are the next step in bathroom décor and a must if you are thinking of renovating your Northern Beaches home. They also have several benefits you should know about.
1. Frameless Shower Screens are more Attractive

If you have an old style screen in your bathroom, it probably has the familiar metal framing, and it might not be clear. Some of the old screens are frosted or textured, which limits visibility, and they include either a hinged or sliding door. With frameless shower screens, you don’t have the frames to worry about, and usually the glass is completely clear, which allows for more light in the room as well as a trendier look. It also means that other elements of the bathroom are accentuated including feature tiles and other bathroom fixtures.

2. They are easy to clean

The second benefit is that frameless bathroom screens are far easier to clean than the previous framed styles. For one thing, you don’t have the frames that, being aluminium, which could build up stains of different types. Clear glass doesn’t really attract stains, so usually just a good wipe down with a wet rag will be enough to get them clean.

3. Hygienically they are better for your family

Next up, the hygiene issue. Old style screens, especially those with metal frames, are a breeding ground for germs if they aren’t cleaned frequently. Also, if the screens were made of a different material than glass, that material could also be a germ magnet. Glass, however, is a non-porous surface that won’t harbour germs or bacteria. Also, with glass you won’t have to worry about mould and mildew and the musty odours they bring with them. A glass shower screen is certainly the most hygienic option for your Northern Beaches bathroom.

4. They provide for easier installation

Now we come to the practical matters. As every person who does DIY work can attest, installing things can sometimes be a royal pain in the neck. The same is true for old shower screens because the framing was tricky to get just right, and then you had to screw or bolt it in place. With frameless shower screens, you don’t have to be concerned about making things fit a certain way; the fixtures can be easily retrofitted to fit your space. Your bathroom will feel bigger too as the frameless screens give a more spacious feel.

5. Frameless Shower Screens are more durable

Last but not least, we come to the issue of repairs. Most of the older style screens eventually give out, especially the frames. Sometimes you might have to do a little maintenance to keep the doors sliding smoothly. With frameless shower screens, you have durable glass doors and fittings which are designed to last a long time. This means you’ll have little or no maintenance to worry about.

These benefits make frameless shower screens really stand out as a popular option for Northern Beaches homes, and they would make a great addition to your bathroom.
