Frameless vs Semi-Frameless vs Framed Shower Screens
The shower screen design and type that you choose will have a big impact on what the overall look of your bathroom will be.
The material and type of bathroom enclosure must be carefully combined to suit your bathroom appearance. There are 3 basic options when it comes to shower enclosures and these are framed, semi-frameless and frameless. At Renovation D we have all the above available for you to choose from.
Below we will discuss the main benefits of each of these options and how you can choose the one that will best serve you.
Frameless shower screens do not have frames around the glass. The heavy glass that is used in these types of shower screens is fastened by clamps and hinges which hold the panels together. These shower screens are popular for their clean and seamless look. They are easy to clean and maintain. If you have intricate tile work in your shower stall, the see-through look shows off the mastery.
Frameless shower screens have a minimalistic design that doesn’t take attention away from all your other bathroom design details. This makes it a perfect choice for small bathrooms as it makes them look bigger. Finally, these shower screens allow natural light to reach every corner of the bathroom, bathing it in a golden glow that illuminates it in a very special way. Because of their technical design, you will need to get a professional to do the installation.
These shower screens are a hybrid between framed screens and frameless ones. There is a sturdy frame that holds the glass and the edges are left exposed. These are the most common types of shower screens. Semi frameless shower screens are cost effective, beautiful in design and last for a long time. They also have a clean look that lends itself well to any bathroom design. Because of their intricate design, you may need to get a professional to do the installation.
Framed shower screens are made of metal frames that surround panels of glass. The metal frames enclose all the sides of the glass and no glass edge is left exposed. These shower screens are fastened with pivots or hinges. The choices when it comes to the metal work are endless.
You can have brass frames, steel frames or aluminium frames. For a more regal look, framed shower screens are the best option. They have the flair and mastery of classic bathroom interiors but can still look good in modern homes.
