Hi all,

Would appreciate some advice or ideas if anyone has any experience of this.

We're planning a redo of the bathroom and would like to install a glass shower enclosure but the layout of the bathroom makes this challenging.

I have attached a photo of the area but the problem arises because the window sill overlaps with the bath so there isnt a complete wall to attach a shower screen.

One idea I had was a screen that is made of two pieces of glass, one is much narrower and is connected to the wall on the inside of the window ledge (where the wall is complete) and then bridges the gap from the wall to the edge of the bath at an angle of approx 135 degrees. Then a hinge will connect the two pieces of glass and align the larger part of the screen perpendicular to the wall so it runs along the bath edge as normal. Is this possible? Would the glass need to be supported by ceiling arms? I've attached a rough sketch to show what I mean, its an overhead view!

Many thanks

Something like this for the corner https://www.bathstore.com/products/libe ... n-844.html The curve would follow the bath from a position just before the reveal.

My thoughts: I would never have a glass / perspex moving shower screen. Reason being I have seen a lot of them and they all seem to have the same "problem" the bottom they have a "squeegee" and they never seem to work as they should, in that they push the water over the outside of the bath, not inside as they should. The other thing I had noticed (Not as many) they "drop"

The nicest ones I have seen are where there is just a dedicated shower (Not a wet room) and the panels are fixed and you walk round them to get to the shower.
Sitting on the floor is..............a car squeegee to clean the glass when you have finished in the shower.

If you are open to it, you could take the bath out and just use a decent size shower. I did it and it was far more useful and practical

No help to the OP but that is b0ll0x. Properly installed they do not move and seal the bath edge perfectly.

As usual we will have to agree to disagree. I am only saying what I have seen.

The layout in my bathroom is similar, although compared to your pic the window reveal in mine starts about where your mixer valve is and my shower is at the other end.

I just use a curtain, I prefer them anyway, they bend when you hit them with your elbow.
