Crittall style steps into the shower

How do you give your bathroom some urban edge? With a Crittall-style shower screen...

For some time, the black-edged, industrial lines of Crittall-style windows have been influencing designs of rear extensions, internal partitions and screens. It’s now a huge trend in bathrooms with the defined-outline aesthetic making it into our bathrooms too with a huge range of brands offering Crittal-style shower screens.

A modern bathroom lends itself wonderfully to this industrial aesthetic, especially in monochrome schemes. The clean, simple lines and understated design of a Crittall-style shower screen add bags of style to this compact room, and add a touch of industrial chic.

And as well as looking rather good, the sturdy, slim-profile frames tap into the current trend for all things utilitarian.

A striking way to frame a walk-in wet room or shower area, these steel-framed partitions feel both light and inclusive but retain an element of separation.

Further enhance the urban aesthetic with the addition of a sleek stainless steel shower  – or the utilitarian style Boffi pipe shower. Glam it up with gorgeous brass taps and some funky bathroom wall lights.


Take a Crittall-style frame with frosty Stoppolyte glass, add a few elegant Art Deco-esque shapes and the Victoria shower door by Drench is born – just one of the many new designs at CPHart‘s expansive Waterloo showroom. The door comes in a range of sizes and even has a towel bar that adds a modern-day convenience to its old-school aesthetic.

Designed to define, the grid panel shower enclosures are made to stand out as a bold centrepiece, with thick metal framework. Every enclosure is made from anodized aluminum, preventing rusting.

The glass is also treated to last, with a proprietary sealant that prevents hard water spots and reduces time spent cleaning glass.


The Matki-One Wet Room Panel has a sleek, simple black frame effect that’s actually printed digitally onto the glass. It can be fixed either to the wall, to create a shower screen, or fixed to the ceiling to create a free-standing screen.

Seemingly light and delicate, the Metalcraft range by West One Bathrooms has a fixed frame design with beautiful proportions and minimalist aluminium frame.

This industrially inspired collection has a functional and timeless design, and with its subtle and minimal framework the Metalcraft collection would suit more decorative bathrooms too.

The Harbour Status Matt Black Frame by Drench is a single Crittall-style shower panel that can come either in clear glass or frosted for a degree of privacy – perfect for ensuites. The glass itself has an easy clean coating which, as the name suggests, makes cleaning super easy whilst being resistant to stains and limescale build up.
