We’re not all blessed with an abundance of space in our bathrooms, hence why over-bath showers have always been a popular space saver.
The resulting conundrum though is how to prevent the water spilling out all over the floor when you’re showering. There are two traditional options: a shower curtain or a bath shower screen. The former is easy and inexpensive to install, but even shower curtains that attest to being “mould and mildew resistant” rarely turn out to be entirely so. Shower screens offer a clean alternative, both in terms of hygiene and aesthetic. Fitting a shower screen properly is essential though, as water is adept at finding the gaps in poorly installed screens and will exploit said gaps as a route to creating unwanted aquatic features on your bathroom floor. In this guide we’ll walk you through how to fit a shower screen on a bath, after a quick look at the different types of shower screen you can choose from.
