One of the hottest trends in bathroom design at the moment is frameless sliding shower screens – and for good reason.
A sliding shower screen can be advantageous in a small bathroom where you don’t have a lot of room for a hinged door to open out.
Plus, frameless sliding shower screens look stylish and luxurious and make your bathroom feel very spa-like.
With the right tiles, accessories and lighting you can really create a sophisticated decor. Your bathroom will have a feeling of openness and flow rather than closed, defined spaces.
The best thing about a frameless shower screen is that you barely notice it – it becomes invisible and makes your bathroom feel larger and more spacious.
It can be a challenge to maximise the illusion of height and space if you have a small bathroom, but a great technique is to use floor to ceiling tiles in order to create a seamless look and elongate the space. If you use light-coloured, glossy tiles they will reflect the light and make the room feel larger.
Plus, the glass door means that you will be able to see the beautiful decorative wall tiles you have chosen – even when you are not in the shower.
Another advantage of this style of shower door is that it doesn’t have any tracks, which means that there are fewer spaces for mould to grow and the shower is easier to keep clean.
The shower door fits within a wall channel, which covers the entire side of the shower screen and attaches to the floor, ceiling or wall. These types of doors are usually made from thick glass, which makes them durable.
