BATHROOM SCREEN (part 4)
To give the bath an original look, you can build a mirror screen. Its manufacture is similar to the manufacturing process of a plastic screen. To move the sash, plastic or metal guides are used. They have small clips, thanks to which the smooth movement of the mirror screen will be carried out.
Fastens the material using special glass clamps. Pay attention to the quality of fastening. It must be reliable. Additionally, the mirror can be glued to liquid nails. In this case, it will not disappear.
Double-sided tape is not recommended. The bathroom has high humidity and often high temperatures. This can adversely affect adhesive tape, which simply ceases to fulfill its main functions and the mirror falls off.
This type of screen has its significant drawbacks. For example, droplets of water will always remain on the surface of the mirror, which form spots after drying. Therefore, after each bath, the mirror screen must be wiped.
Fabric materials can be used as a screen, for example, it can be artificial leather, waterproof nylon material, fabric with a membrane structure, polyester material, etc.
How to fix such a screen? Everything is pretty simple. Using special glue, glue one side of the Velcro to the inside of the bathtub rim. If necessary, the edges of the curtain (screen) and bottom need to be sheathed on a sewing machine. The other side of the velcro is sewn to the top edge of the curtain. Then the curtain is attached to the bathtub with Velcro. This is a cheap option for a bath screen, which is very important with a limited budget.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE SCREEN CORRECTLY
How to choose the right screenHow to choose the right screen
If you do not want to make a screen yourself, but decided to buy it, then pay attention to some nuances of the right choice:
In the case when the bathroom is spacious, almost any screen can fit.
Provided that when the bath room is small, for example, as in Khrushchev, the choice is limited. In this case, a sliding door or a removable and monolithic one is better. As for the monolithic, it is perfect for a narrow bathtub.
Sliding screen models are much more convenient when they are immediately equipped with shelves. In this case, it is possible to hide all the necessary bath accessories, household chemicals, etc.
If you have an acrylic bath, then in most cases the screens are included. If not, then immediately pick it up in the store so that it is completely suitable.
Pay attention to the quality of the pens. They must be made of a material that is not subject to rust.
If the selected screen has legs in its design, they must be adjustable. Otherwise, it will be difficult to install it under the individual characteristics of the bath, especially when the floor is not quite even.
Best when the hardware is made of metal. Plastic can break quickly.
