If you’re doing a bathroom renovation in your Adelaide home or you’re simply replacing your shower screens, there are several choices you need to make. To help with your decision-making, we’ve put together our top five things to consider when it comes to selecting your shower screens.

Consider your Adelaide bathroom

The first thing to do is to consider the bathroom in your Adelaide home. Key aspects are size and natural light. Is your bathroom small or large, and is it dark or nice and bright?

These considerations can help in your choice of shower screens. For example, in a bathroom that is small and dark, a frameless or semi-frameless shower screen is a great choice because they help make bathrooms appear larger and brighter.

Another example is where your shower is squashed up against the vanity or toilet. While a pivot door is generally recommended, in these types of situations, a sliding door or fixed screen is likely to be best.

Bathroom style

Next comes your bathroom style. If your bathroom and home are modern or contemporary, most people these days choose frameless or semi-frameless shower screens. They’re minimalistic and modern looking. However, if you have an older-style bathroom, framed shower screens often work best.

If in doubt, we recommend semi-frameless shower screens. They’re a great alternative and will work with virtually any bathroom style.

Cleaning habits

Some people enjoy cleaning their bathrooms (we won’t judge, we promise!), but it’s probably fair to say that most of us see it as a chore. If you’re looking to reduce bathroom cleaning time, semi-frameless and frameless shower screens will be your friend, as fewer frames (or none in the case of frameless) and hardware make cleaning a breeze.

You might also like to consider a walk-in shower if you have the space. With no door and usually only one glass shower screen, there’s even less cleaning involved.


While it would be great to worry about budget, for most of us, this isn’t the case. This means you might need to make minor compromises when renovating your bathroom or replacing your shower screens.

Framed shower screens are a good solution if your budget is tight. They’re cheaper because the glass is lighter due to the support that the frames provide. They’re also cheaper to install than frameless screens. Semi-frameless shower screens are slightly more expensive but are an excellent compromise if your budget will stretch a bit further. They provide great ‘bang for buck’.


Some people like minimalistic shower screens, so want frameless, while others prefer the solid perception that full frames provide. Some people like pivoting doors and they’re a great choice because there’s simply less that can go wrong, while others prefer sliding. Or you may prefer no doors at all, as in the case of a walk-in shower.

The great thing about glass shower screens – if you use a reputable supplier, manufacturer and installer – is that they are all terrific products. So, you can’t really go wrong with whatever options you choose.
