It’s one of those age-old home décor questions: what’s better, shower curtains or shower screens? At the end of the day, the decision is yours, but make sure you consider the decision carefully.
Cheaper and easier to install, shower curtains are budget friendly and simple. You can choose from a variety of colours and designs and really who off your personality. Particularly effective when surrounding combined shower and tub systems, shower curtains can be taken down and washed when necessary.
Unfortunately, shower curtains do tend to get dirty quickly and are prone to mould and mildew growth. If not well done, shower curtain can look very tired and age your otherwise modern bathroom.
While more expensive, shower screens are very modern and extremely versatile. Suitable for almost any bathroom and layout. Shower screens can be installed around your shower area to define wet and dry areas and prevent water from spreading to others of your bathroom. Shower screens are available in a range of materials and styles, with glass panels providing a very luxurious look.
Shower screens do, however, require regular cleaning to prevent a build up of soap scum. It becomes very obvious that your screens are dirty if they are not properly maintained. Shower screens can also look slightly out of place when surrounding a combined bath and shower (not to mention it makes bathing pets or children more difficult).
As you can see there are advantages and disadvantages to both options, but in general the layout of your bathroom will largely make the decision for you.
