If you’re looking to fit out your bathroom, or even just spruce up your existing one, a bespoke glass shower screen could be just the finishing touch you need to give your room the wow factor.
Bespoke glass shower screens can add a contemporary design and sleek finish to any residential or hotel bathroom – and they are the perfect solution if your shower is a non-standard size or shape.
Bespoke glass shower screens can be cut to size to suit any size or shape imaginable. So, sloping ceilings, awkward notches, out-of-true walls, loft conversions and oversized shower enclosures can all be accommodated in style.
Made from toughened glass to ensure their strength, safety and stability, bespoke glass shower screens can be 6mm, 8mm or 10mm thick, depending on where and how they are to be used. The thicker the glass, the heavier it is, so 10mm tempered glass could prove too heavy for a hinged shower screen, whereas it would be ideal for a fixed wall or cubicle.
There are limitless options when it comes to the shape and design of a bespoke glass shower screen. Curved, straight-cut or angled edges can add a different dimension to an over-bath screen, while decorative effects such as sand blasting or acid etching can be used to personalise your bespoke glass screen or simply add privacy by obscuring the glass. These options are particularly appealing for commercial buyers, for example hotels or spas, who may choose to add their logo or brand identity to their screens.
Bespoke glass shower screens are also available in a range of colour options and finishes, so customers can choose whether they would like clear, smoked or coloured glass – again, adding to the sense of uniqueness of the shower screen and the room as a whole.
The fixtures and fittings you choose for a bespoke glass shower screen are another way to personalise your room. Options available include;
There’s also the choice between hinged, bi-folding, sliding or fixed doors when you opt for a bespoke glass shower screen. And you can even cut out the cleaning by choosing self-cleaning glass.
When it comes to bespoke glass shower screens, the options truly are limitless. But choose carefully and you’ll enhance your home or commercial premises with a unique style statement that will fit perfectly and add a touch of elegance for years to come.
