About Wet Room Shower Screens
A wet room shower screen is a divide between the shower and the rest of the room. They are more commonly used when the wet room houses other bathroom furniture such as toilets and sinks but are can also be used in isolation to create separate shower and drying areas. The screens themselves can come in a variety of heights from the typical one to two metre 'shower size' through to full-length floor to ceiling screens.
Nearly all wet room shower screens are glass or perspex products. They can be fully clear, frosted or opaque glass or have patterns or strips to provide more privacy. You will have the option of a framed screen or frameless. For the framed products the most widely available finishes are white or metal frames. The most common metal frame finishes are chrome, stainless steel or brushed metal but alternatives are available if required. Width and thickness of the screen also vary depending on room size and personal preference.
In most cases the wet room shower screen is a flat, linear product and will be fitted to one wall, leaving space to get access to the shower. However, for a more elaborate design curved options are available and can be configured to produce a wave effect or even walkway in to the shower area. These curved products are typically more expensive.
