Glass curtains for the bathroom - what type of curtains is the best?

For many years, designers of standard apartments reduced the area of ​​bathrooms to a vital minimum. Squeeze out the available 3-4 square meters of maximum benefit and at least somehow visually move the walls will be easier, if instead of the usual curtains to use glass curtains for the bathroom.

Glass curtains in the bathroom

Many are afraid to install glass shower curtains for the bathroom, considering this design potentially life threatening. Is it possible to place glass sheets in a room with high humidity and temperature extremes? Do they scatter from the slightest push, causing great trouble? Let's try to dispel all possible fears:

  1. For the production of glass curtains for the bathroom uses a special tempered glass, the strength of which is comparable to the windshield of the car. It easily withstands a long stay in a humid room and a temperature jump, resists scratches and bumps.
  2. When the safety margin of the glass sheet is exhausted (for example, with a very strong impact), it breaks up into small round pieces that do not harm the skin.
  3. Secure yourself and can with a special protective film, glued to the entire surface of the glass curtain. In the force majeure situation, she reliably will keep the fragments of glass, not allowing them to fly around the room.

Glass, as you know, the material is heavy and expensive. Those who want to facilitate the design in both physical and material terms, it is worth paying attention to curtains made of plastic or polycarbonate. In the first months of operation, they externally differ little from glass, but eventually fade and become scratched. In this case, plastic gives more scope for design fantasy, as it can be painted in any of the colors and have any texture.

Glass curtains for the bathroom can be:

  1. Stationary (panel) - have the form of a fixed glass partition, enclosing the bath or shower.
  2. Movable (sliding, folding, swinging) - along with fixed canvases, have their own changing elements, which allows the maximum use of the entire space of the bathroom, while protecting it from splashing water.

Foldable glass curtain for the bathroom

Thanks to a reliable mobile design, glass folding curtains for the bathroom or curtain-accordion give full access to any corner of the room, reliably protecting it from splashes. This is ideal for small toilets. When there is no need for a protective screen, it can easily be folded in one motion and turned to the wall. Such curtains are produced in most cases by wireframe technology, therefore they require careful care - in the places where the glass is adhered to the frame, a calcareous deposit is used to accumulate.

Blinds for bathroom

Shower glass curtains, the doors of which open, like ordinary doors - a phenomenon that rarely occurs, as in small apartments, and in spacious mansions. The reason for this is a very irrational use of space: if the doors open outward, a "dead" zone forms around the bath, and if you go inside, you can only get to the far corners of the bath by climbing into it.

Shower curtains, glass, sliding

A universal solution for placing any footage and design can be called sliding glass curtains on the bath. They can be manufactured both in frame and frameless technology. In the latter case, the construction looks visually very light, as if floating in the air. Sliding can be realized by means of rollers or grooves. More reliable and more convenient in operation are the models equipped with two pairs of rollers: from above and from below.

Corner glass curtain for the bathroom

If with a choice of glass protective curtains for a rectangular bath, as a rule, problems do not arise (all depends only on the budget and aesthetic preferences), then the angular models, due to the design features, require a certain ingenuity. The simplest solution to the problem is a corner bath with glass curtains. In this case, there is no risk of inconsistencies between the elements of the bowl and the protective screen. You can also purchase an accordion curtain, but in this case you will have to tinker, adjusting the guide for it under the relief of the bath.

Glass curtain for bathroom matte

Glass curtains in the shower can have a transparent or matt (partially or completely) surface. The frosted glass not only will not allow splashes of water to scatter around the room, but it will reliably protect the receiving shower from other people's eyes, which is especially important for combined bathrooms. But before you buy and install frosted glass curtains for the bathroom, you need to think about additional lighting, because one light source, even in a small room, will not be enough.

Glass shower curtains without shower tray

Modern hydromassage cabs can be associated with the spaceship - a lot of chrome handles and switches + bulky construction. Those who prefer lightness and minimalism will like the glass shower curtains without a pallet. This light frame-free design fences the bathroom zone, which has been allocated to the shower, reliably preventing water from splashing. Belt mounts are located on the floor and / or the ceiling, and the curtain design can be either sliding or swinging.

Shower curtains glass with a pallet

The option of arranging the shower without a pallet, though very effective externally, requires competently executed (and not expensive) plumbing and finishing works. By purchasing glass curtains for a shower enclosure, it is possible to equip a shower corner with minimal costs and minimal risk of undesirable leaks. In this case, the protective cloths are attached to the base tray, which acts as a container for collecting water. Glass curtains in this case can be both sliding, so combined, combining stationary and movable elements.
