When doing a bathroom remodel, homeowners usually focus on what they consider the big items. For example, the tub, vanity, countertop, and tile all contribute to the overall design we want in our bathroom so they are a natural choice. One thing homeowners normally don’t think about is the drain system in the shower. Most people are used to the simple round drain that sits in the middle of our shower floor. Though it gets the job done, no one can call it pretty or attractive.
Today, however, there are new and attractive choices available. Tagged as “hidden or premium shower drains,” these drains allow for a more finished and attractive look on your shower floor. They come in linear—or trench—shape, square and triangular shapes, as well as curbless designs that are simply an opening at the bottom of the wall.
It’s helpful to note that using a hidden or premium drain can expand your design choices as well. Using larger sized tiles, shaped and patterned tiles are easier to implement now than ever before. And most importantly, you don’t have to worry about an ugly round drain detracting from your beautiful tile work.
However, as with any remodeling project, research your choices and discuss them with your contractor or plumber. This will ensure that you have picked the best drain for your shower area. Then you can enjoy the smooth, finished look and feel of your new shower floor for years to come.
