We’re getting more and more creative when it comes to decorating our bathrooms, and shower screens have transformed from plain, solely functional elements of our space into something to be lusted after.

Trends, such as black-framed, Crittall-style shower enclosures, have filtered down from luxury design to high-street retailers, but with a release of a raft of statement shower screens, could this new collection from Alternative Bathrooms be a vision of the future of our bathrooms?

The Matte shower screens from Drench come in 4 designs – plain frame Border; a Crittall-esque Frame Lite; Hexagon; and Suzhou, a style based on traditional Japanese sliding screens. However, it’s the range of finishes that really elevates these screens to the next level. Finishes include 6 metallic finishes and 12 matte colours, which range from classic Dark Graphite to pastel shades and even a bright, zingy yellow.
