It Begins with the Right Shower Screen …

There are many difficult decisions that need to be made when upgrading a bathroom space, but select the right shower screen and the rest of the project can then start to take shape. To select the right shower screen, first consider the size of the bathroom and the proportions of the entire space. For small bathrooms, a frameless or semi-frameless shower screen is the best choice as it gives the illusion of space and won’t make the bathroom feel cramped or like it’s lacking room to move.

However, a frameless shower screen mightn’t suit your style tastes or the design of your bathroom, so you can also consider styles like framed corner entry shower screens which are a top choice for small ensuites and bathrooms, along with larger bathrooms in which a prominent shower corner area is desired. Here are a few more insights to help you select the perfect shower screen:

  • Shower screens featuring a sliding door (as opposed to a door that pivots) help to maximise space and give you greater layout options.
  • Consider your intended bathroom colour schemes and design elements and how the shower screen will interact with the other materials and elements in the bathroom.
  • Tinted or frosted glass screens are better suited to large bathrooms as the screens affect the proportions of smaller bathroom spaces, resulting in the impression of limited space.
  • Frameless shower screens are often the easiest varieties to keep clean as they lack the frame, the area where soap residue and dirt tends to build up.
  • Bath panels are available if you still want to keep your bathtub (and say goodbye to the curtain and rail) and are available in fixed, swing and dual-folding varieties.

With the exception of our bath panels (these are available in three popular sizes), all our shower screens are made to measure to ensure a perfect fit and the RG team is always available to help you select the most suitable shower screen door for your Perth home.

How a New Shower Screen Can Transform Your Bathroom Space

The style of shower screen you select will determine the way in which the transformation of your bathroom space occurs, which means selecting the right shower door is crucial if you’re to transform your bathroom space and achieve your desired outcome. So, what’s the outcome that you’re looking for by replacing your old shower screen with a new one?

  • Sleek Appearance and Clean Lines – A few shower screen varieties are perfect for delivering a sleek, sophisticated appearance with an open look, such as frameless and semi-frameless shower screens. For the best effect, consider the texture and colour of the tiles and other features in the bathroom.
  • Openness and Space – It’s the frameless shower screens (both pivot and sliding door shower screens) that are most effective at conveying openness and the feeling of unrestricted space. Creating a sense of openness is important in small bathrooms and ensuites if you’re to avoid a cramped, restricted look, with the sliding door variety the best choice in bathrooms that are tiny or pose problems due to the layout and positioning of vanity units, towel racks, etc.
  • Clearly Delineated Areas – All shower screen varieties in the RG selection are ideal for this, though if you want a prominent shower area in a corner, for example, something along the lines of the framed corner entry or the framed sliding door shower screens would be ideal. The effect is a bathroom space in which all areas (shower, toilet, vanity unit and sink, etc.) are distinctly separate from one another.
