New Bath Screens

Bath screens are a relatively easy and inexpensive way to modernize your bathroom with minimum fuss. It is also something that you could do yourself, without having to pay the sometimes expensive cost of a plumber or installer.

Bath screens come in a wide variety of sizes and styles,this makes finding just the right one a pretty simple task.  Bath screens are a stylish, neater and moe hygenic alternative to a shower curtain.  Shower screens are primarily made of glass or any other translucent material – some come clear glass and some come frosted for those who prefer a little more privacy. Shower screens come in a range of modern and decorative looks to suit any style of bathroom so you’ll never struggle to find one that you like.

Most of the bath screens you see will offer 5mm toughened safety glass, making them perfect to withstand the day to day use they may encounter, if a screen uses thinner glass than this I would stay away as it could be dangerous.  Shower screens make sure that when you are using your bathroom as a shower, you will not be getting water on the floor which could potentially rot or damage the floor or any fittings or fixtures in the bathroom.

Bathroom Makeovers

The best piece of advice I can offer if you want to create the perfect bathroom makeover, then I would say the it is the small changes that make the big difference in your makeover.

Painting the walls for example should be reasonably straight forward and will give you immediate results, perhaps try a funky new colour for that immediate impact or a subtle shade to give your bathroom a much more mellow feel. Changing the colour of your walls is an immediate mood change, it should take no more than a day and will not break the bank.

Colour can make your room seem bigger, warmer and create a variety of moods, the type of paint finish can also enhance the ambience so choose carefully.

Consider your window blinds, are they wooden, metal or fabric and what would a different selection of material do to change the look and feel of the bathroom. Again a simple change that will not break the bank but can have a massive impact. Think simple is the rule here.

While it may be out of your scope to pay for new bathroom cabinets or doors, consider perhaps either repainting the doors as there are a variety of options available such as wood effect, metallic finish or standard gloss paint. Should you need to, why not consider just changing the doors instead of the entire cabinet.

Accessories is key here to, the addition of a few little trinkets can also do wonders in creating something different. You can also try to make your own bathroom additions to personalise your bathroom – you can then be guaranteed that none of your friends will have the same look as you do!
