Keeping Glass in Top Condition: A Guide

Hello! My name is Vince. Last year, I learnt a very important lesson - if you do not look after the glass in your home, it will not look after you. You see, I hadn't really inspected, cleaned or carried out any maintenance work on the glass windows and doors in my home. One day, during a storm, the glass in one of my windows shattered. I didn't know what to do. When I called in a glass contractor, he said that the glass had failed due to a hairline crack. He replaced the other pieces of glass in my home and gave me some advice about glass care.

Why It Is Time to Switch to a Frameless Glass Shower Screen

Are you thinking that your bathroom is in dire need of an update, but you have no money to invest in a complete overhaul? Not to worry! A bathroom renovation does not have to be about changing every single element to introduce a new design. Simple strategic changes can provide a massive transformation for your bathroom, all you have to do is select the right place to focus on. 

And one good place to start is your bathtub or shower enclosure. If your bathroom still has a shower screen, here are a few reasons why it is time to switch to a frameless glass shower screen.

Enhanced safety 

Homeowners that have never had a glass shower screen before may be sceptical about how safe it will be for their bathroom. In truth, you do not have anything to be anxious about. In fact, keeping your shower curtain is more hazardous. For starters, shower curtains do not provide any solid barrier in case you were to stumble in the bath. A frameless shower screen is made from tempered glass, which is sturdy enough to support your weight and prevent you from falling out of the enclosure.

Secondly, shower curtains are a breeding ground for fungi. If not cleaned properly, the mould will soon spread to other parts of your bathroom too. Before you know it, you need remediation services. Glass shower screens are not conducive to mould due to their sleek surface. Lastly, while a shower curtain will prevent some of your bath water from splashing onto the floor, it will still allow water to seep through. Shower screens keep all the water inside your bath enclosure, so you minimise the risk of slipping on wet floors.

Stunning appeal

The visual appeal that glass shower screens offer over shower curtains is incomparable! You may believe that having an attractive print on your shower curtains will complement your bathroom, but shower curtains have a propensity for blocking light. Thus, your bathroom will always seem darker than it really is. Frameless glass shower screens enhance the natural lighting in the space, which can make your bathroom seem large.

Moreover, frameless glass shower screens do not have any lines that will compartmentalise your bathroom. Another benefit of glass shower screens is that they complement any interior design you have already chosen for your bathroom, so you do not have to switch up your bathroom's style once you install the shower screen.
