Minimalistic bathroom designs have been seeing a steady increase over the past years. Either renovating or redesigning bathrooms, everyone looks out for the most contemporary products and accessories for their bathrooms, to enhance the typical bathroom routine and to uplift the ambience. One of the most popular options that helps in achieving this modern look is a frameless shower screen. As opposed to solely contributing towards a more visually appealing area, a frameless shower screen is so much more. Its structural nature of plain glass that comes sans hardware, improves its functionality and ease of maintenance in the long term. The choice and decision of installing a frameless shower door during your bathroom renovation is to accomplish a sense of minimalism overall. Prior to spontaneously investing in a frameless shower screen, it is vital that you have the ideal measurements sufficient enough to install one in order to avoid disintegrating its structure, durability or flexibility. Once these details have been determined, together with your desired placement of the shower area of which your new frameless shower screen will be a part of, you can proceed to Who Bathroom Warehouse to discover the remarkable selection of high quality products available to suit your needs.
A common misconception regarding bathroom renovations is that the only focus should be towards the colours or theme, accessories and personal accessory requirements. However, the ultimate purpose of a renovation is also to enhance your lifestyle positively, which means that long term maintenance should be a key factor to consider. Fixtures and bathroom accessories that are relatively easier to clean and consume less time should ideally be prioritised, as this will impact the overall functionality in a remarkable way. Due to the structure and composition of the frameless shower screen, there are little to no areas where mold can develop due to the constant retention of moisture for long periods of time. The common distress caused by opting for framed shower doors, is the collection of water under, and around the door’s seals towards the bottom of it. This, together with the warm temperature of the bathroom provides the perfect environment for mold to grow rapidly, at a higher frequency. It can be challenging and tiring to constantly get rid of it. In contrast, frameless shower screens are extremely easy to clean; simply wiping down the door and finishing off with a squeegee to completely get rid of the moisture completely is all it takes.
Considering the aspect of installation for a frameless shower screen, it is comparatively easier as opposed to framed ones. Frameless shower screens simply come with minimum brackets or clips that are sufficient to secure it upright in the bathroom, unlike the heavy framed shower screens or semi-frameless shower screens, which need to be fitted more precisely to align all the pieces with one another with few gaps as possible. Durability is an essential factor to consider, and this issue will be the least of your concerns, as the frameless shower screens available at Who Bathroom Warehouse are built to maintain structural integrity and provide safety.
It is important to understand the user friendly nature behind its contemporary form. Without a single gold or silver coloured frame, the glass is supported in place by a singular bracket or very few clips. Due to this mechanism, the glass composition of a typical frameless shower screen may be relatively thicker than its framed counterpart. The most advantageous factor of this structure is, due to the lack of hardware fastened onto the frameless shower screen, corrosion can be significantly minimised, or eliminated altogether, which cannot be expected from framed ones. Additionally, due to its premium quality and structure, though it may be relatively costlier than the more common, framed shower screen, it showcases a sense of luxury and modern minimalism, bringing about a higher value and upscale character for your home, if you are interested in renting or selling it in the future.
The next great advantage of opting for a frameless shower screen, is the ease of furnishing and adorning your bathroom according to your personal desires and preferences, as opposed to being creatively restricted due to the framed nature of other shower screens. A frameless shower screen reflects on the overall look and feel of your bathroom, by providing the illusion of a larger and brighter bathroom than it actually is. Therefore, as opposed to making the designing stage of your bathroom renovation more challenging, opting for more modern bathroom accessories such as a frameless shower screen, will eliminate the risks you may face with other variations of shower screens and let you proceed with the renovation without disturbances. Expressing your personal style through your home interiors is important for aesthetic and lifestyle purposes, and the bathroom accessories selected based on your desires and vision, will effortlessly help in achieving this ambience.
