We get it; condominiums are not the easiest spaces to work with, especially if there are so many things that you want to do to make it look extra. It takes a lot of planning to make sure that the limited space gets personalised and at the same time functional. Some people even hire professionals to help them achieve their dream space.
One of the easiest steps to enhance a condominium space is actually to plan it per section. It means that every addition to the limited area needs to be functional and at the same space efficient. This way, you can increase the overall value of the unit, without compromising convenience and comfort while staying in it.
The bathroom is often the overlooked area of the condominium. However, if you are coming from an investment perspective, this area of the unit is as crucial as the rest. A lot of potential buyers and renters tend to be easily turned off by unmaintained or unappealing bathrooms. So, during your interior design or renovation process, make sure to give the bathroom the loving attention it deserves.
Shower Screens and their Intrinsic Value
Most if not all condominium units are turned over with furnished bathroom. This means you have the essentials from the toilet, tiling, shower head, and even lavatory. While these are definitely functional enough for a basic bathroom, they may not be enough to make put your unit on investor’s top choices.
While limited with space, the bathroom actually provides for a lot of easy improvement ideas, from adding tile works to putting statement photos and plants. One sure way to instantly make the bathroom look expensive is by installing shower screens.
Shower screens create an illusion of a larger bathroom space, as long as you choose the right screen door for your layout. Apart from aesthetics, shower screens actually protect the rest of the bathroom from being splashed with water. We all know how annoying it can be to step on constantly wet bathroom floors.
Here’s a quick guide on how to have your own shower screen installed:
- Measure your available space
For a faster and easier transaction with your shower screen provider, it will help if you already have exact measurements of your shower area where the screen can be installed. Your contractor will be able to estimate the thickness of the frame and the appropriate glass pane to use.
- Take a photo of the bathroom layout
Where the shower head is located will also determine the type of screen that will be installed. For instance, if the shower head is located in the corner, the traditional horizontal pane will not work. With this, there is a need to use around the layout to accommodate the corners.
- Design and Movement
You also need to decide on how you want the shower screen to function. Some people prefer a walk-in shower to save on space, yet still, achieve that division. This type of shower screen only uses at least two glass panes with a minimal frame. The sliding screen is also another space-saving option but may cost more.
- Glass Quality
We should never compromise safety for aesthetics. With this, it is important to carefully scrutinise the glass panes and frames that are being used, making sure that they are sturdy enough for extended or long-term use.
With the right material and proper installation, shower screens will surely increase the value of the property, while also giving the unit that extra feel.
