Do you like your shower screen? - I am considering the same type of shower screen but I am wondering how well it keeps water in the tub and does it open so you can turn on the water without getting in the tub? After using it would you recommend this type of shower screen? It looks fantastic but wonder if it's practical.

Hi, and than you for your questions. All our shower screens open into and out of the tub up to 90 degrees, although there is usually something in the way (e.g. a vanity or toilet on the bathroom side and a tub spout on the bath side) to prevent full opening. I'd say the majority of people tend to step into the tub and reach across to turn on the water, rather than moving the glass, simply because it is a bit more convenient. If you have a deeper 'soaker' tub (19" or so deep) then it may be more convenient to move the glass however. If you are doing plumbing work anyway, you could consider moving the controls, a few people have done this in the past. In terms of water retention, most people who are not familiar with the product are surprised at how easily/well our shower screens contain the water, but we normally recommend doing a little test before purchasing where possible. Erect an open shower curtain or similar mock up to give the same coverage as the model you are considering (e.g. 30" or 33.5") and try taking a shower. We would recommend this type of bath screen for the vast majority of bathtub showers - please view our FAQs section for more details. We think the product is as good in practice as it looks but then again we are biased - we make them! Consequently, I highly recommend that you read the Testimonials section of our website for customer feedback.

Hello and thank you for the question. I believe the vanity is the Fayette range from Thomasville (http://www.thomasvillecabinetry.com/Style48/Fayette.aspx). You should be able to get it from the Home Depot.

Many thanks for the quick reply!
It was really a shot in the dark and I am happily surprised that you knew the answer.

Hi! Thanks for your interest. I know they are marble but I have to admit I don't know what they are called. I will try to find out though. Meanwhile, I have attached another photo a bit closer up in case it helps.

Do you have to protect the window with something special? - We would like a bigger shower but I am afraid that we will have to include the window in the new shower.
