The modern design of the bathroom provides more positive emotions, reveals the possibility of relaxation, emphasizes the feeling of comfort, warmth and comfort. The design varies with each passing year. The great variety of building materials and furniture used to create the interior of theimpresses and surprises the buyer. With some novelties have to get acquainted with the Internet, asking friends, talking with the seller-consultant. When doing the repair of the bathroom, I want to hide the most unsightly zones, so that the aesthetic look calms and relaxes.
One of the areas that you should definitely conceal is the space at the foot of the bath where the technical units and various economic materials are stored. A very large number of models look aesthetically both on the inside and on the outside. The beautiful legs of the baths perfectly complement the interior. And you should not hide them. But the cost of such a model is high, and a middle-income buyer will not always be able to afford to pay such a price. The relatively cheap baths are not completely aesthetic from the bottom. The most popular and accessible ways to close the space under the bath and to arrange it are screens, curtains, podiums.
In plumbing shops you can buy a ready-made bathroom screen for different designs and configurations, and you can do it with your own hands.
The main thing - it's harmony with the interior.
Screen Models The under-bath screen has several advantages:
- wide range of models;
- available price;
- is a diverse design and color solution;
- variety of screen models.
Screen models are classified according to the material from which they are made( drywall sheet, polyvinylchloride panel or tile, tile) and, of course, size.
The screen under the bath must have the correct size. This is a very important detail. He must exactly fill the hole that needs to be closed. The market is presented in sizes, ranging from miniature 105х50 and to the warrior 190х50.The classic screen under the bath is 3 mm thick, 50 cm high, 55 cm, 56 cm, and the length is 150 cm, 160 cm, 170 cm, 180 cm. It will be very difficult to find the screen under the bath of inappropriate size. There will be a length and height for any bowl.
The usual silent screen for a bath of 160 cm, 170 cm, 180 cm is a panel or shield, which is fixed to the frame. It has stops or legs that are height adjustable. Sometimes these legs are closed by the base. They stand tight on the floor and press against the side of the bath. A similar screen under the bath is inexpensive. With its help you can only hide the unattractive side of the bath. But to use the space under the bathroom as a barn, it does not fit. Such a screen for the bathroom has to be constantly removed.
Setting up a regular 160x50 screen is very simple and takes a few minutes. The ability to use a niche for storing such a screen disappears by itself, as it is constantly being removed, and then putting in place such a bathroom screen does not make any sense.
Another side - sliding screen for bath 160 sm. Its slightly higher price corresponds to great functionality. With sliding curtains you can easily get into a niche under the bath and use it for its intended purpose:
- to eliminate the malfunction of plumbing communications;
- check drain siphon;
- store unused items.
The most advanced screen for bath 180, 160 already has ready-made boxes and shelves. With their help the mistress can compose and organize various items. These can be chemical cleaning products, as well as bathrobes and towels.
The bath screen, like the bath itself, has spacers or adjustable legs, thanks to which it tightly adjoins to the side of the bath and to the wall.
You can decorate a screen with a variety of decorative elements under the bath. They will complement the style and color of the already set attributes. The screen for a bath of 160 cm can be completely mirrored.
When choosing a screen of any configuration and size, the quality of the material must first be taken into account in accordance with the sanitary norms. It must be strong, moisture resistant, resistant to various detergents. Mandatory when purchasing is the presence of instructions and warranty obligations. The seller must present a certificate for the product.
Screen selected - it's right to mount it. First, we try the frame-frame and put the height and the desired position of the legs. To avoid slipping attach silicone seals to the legs. Align the screen to the right size. In the case of passing pipes on the wall of the bathroom, in the panels cut openings for these communications.
Match the bath screen so that the legs coincide with the permanent location, then tilt it and insert the upper part under the side. Bring a little bit and push the legs as they should stand. Lower the frame. Adjust height using legs. Check the operation of the door.
Many independently make screen under the bath, using modern materials: plastic, drywall, metal-plastic, aluminum profiles.
Producing a screen under the bath with your own hands
- welding machine;
- drill or screwdriver.
- guiding profiles;
- plastic PVC panels 6 m in length;
- square 10 x 10 mm thin-walled tube;
- long screws screws.
Two square parallel tubes of 10x10 mm connecting the crossbars of the same pipe, which split the screen evenly into three parts. At the bottom of the screen you need to attach the nuts. An important part is the protection of the nut from metal droplets. To do this, he screwed the screw up to the hat itself. Now we open the finished frame with primer, and then paint. Then go on to install guides. In this we will help screws on metal with tips. Their shape in the form of a drill will help to attach them to the frame without difficulty. Guides are fastened to the bottom and top pipes. The grooves must be rotated to each other.
The last stage of work is the manufacture of doors. With the help of a Bulgarian, we cut the plastic with the appropriate sizes, which corresponds to the distance between the guide profiles. Finished items insert from side( 34 pcs) immediately into one groove, and then - into another. To make the plastic look like a solid construction, with the back side we attach tape( stick seams separately from above and below or a continuous strip along the entire length of each joint).The final part is decorating with handles, other elements at your request.
Installation of the
screen design To carry out the installation of a standard design, 160, 180 cm, it is necessary to screw the bolts to the bottom of the screen with the help of plastic hexagons and, with these screws, disassemble the screen between the floor and the bath. An important part is preventing water from entering the bottom of the bath. For this there is a sanitary sealant, which, with the help of a special gun, is applied to the seam under the bath and acts as a sealant.
In the bathroom, we not only lie and relax, but also erase, my different objects and the bowl periodically clean, we wipe. It's not quite convenient to do it at a deaf screen. Therefore, leave a small inclined niche for the feet at the bottom of the screen. In order to create a ventilation that will prevent the development of bacteria and mold, experts recommend leaving a small hole under the bath. This screen under the bath will have other dimensions and configuration.
A corner screen for the bath
The corner screen for the bath is not entirely standard. This kind of screens can be both static and sliding. The design consists of guides and panels. Performing the main requirement - moisture resistance, for the manufacture of aluminum, organic glass. A corner-shaped tub screen can be made of wood, the main thing is to make it moisture-proof.
