Installing a shower screen to the wall or over the bath is the best way to create an enclosed showering area. The latest include a range of modern shapes, colours and sizes as well as foldable or sliding mechanisms for a stylish and functional upgrade to your bathroom.
Although using shower curtains is a way of keeping your bathroom dry, a quality shower screen provides a more premium look and feel. They are also far better at preventing water from escaping and ending up on the floor as they fully enclose the shower with rubber seals.

How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates Shower Screens
As we own a number of properties (rentals and Airbnb’s), we’ve installed several shower screens over the years that include those over a bath (as shown in the picture of a recent installation of ours) as well as screens for walk-in showers.
We see them as an essential component of any shower due to the fact that they reduce water splashing all over the bathroom. They also do a great job of providing a stylish and functional upgrade to your bathroom.
If you have never installed a shower screen before, it’s a DIY task that we feel is achievable for most beginner DIY’ers. To walk you through the process, we created an indepth guide of how to fit shower screens with photos of each step.
As well as our experience of using and installing a number of shower screens, we also based our recommendations upon hours of research and multiple factors. Some of the factors that we took into consideration included the design, build quality, glass thickness, adjustability, supplied installation hardware, guarantee and value.
