Semi frameless vs frameless shower screen

If you’ve decided to replace your existing shower screen, you’ll likely take a good look at the range of fully frameless shower screens.

It makes sense. They look great in most bathrooms and are very popular. However, don’t discount framed shower screens.

They have several benefits that make them worth considering for your Adelaide bathroom makeover.

5 benefits of framed shower screens for your Adelaide home

What are the benefits of choosing a framed shower screen for your Adelaide home? Let’s take a look at the main ones.

  1. If you think a fully framed shower screen is inferior in any way, you’re not thinking clearly (pardon the pun!). Properly installed, a good quality shower screen will provide you with a safe and effective shower enclosure. It doesn’t matter whether it’s framed, semi-frameless or frameless. 
  2. In fact, when it comes to effectiveness, framed shower screens are actually better at keeping water inside your shower enclosure, where it belongs. That’s because they are fully sealed on all sides and the bottom, including the door. Frameless and semi-frameless shower screens aren’t sealed at the door, potentially allowing a little water to spill out. 
  3. Framed shower screen are more versatile. This is particularly because you can have a sliding door instead of a pivoting door. This may be particularly important if your Adelaide bathroom is on the small side. Framed shower screens are suitable for all bathrooms layouts and sizes.
  4. Framed shower screens are durable and in general will last longer than other options. If you install a new, good quality framed shower screen in your Adelaide home today, you’re unlikely to have any issues for a very long time.
  5. Perhaps the biggest benefit of the framed shower screen is that it’s a good budget solution. There are two main reasons for this. Firstly, because the glass is supported on all sides, it can be lighter than glass used in frameless and semi-frameless options. This, of course, means the purchase price will be cheaper. In addition, they are little easier to install, so you’ll probably save a few dollars on installation costs.
