Design trend: upgrade your bathroom with a barrier-free shower

Upgrade your bathroom with a barrier-free or walk-in shower

Barrier-free or walk-in showers are growing in popularity and are being used more and more in bathroom renovations. These popular showers are mostly installed in combination with a linear shower drain, which offers several benefits like easy cleaning, use of large format tiles and one-way sloping toward the drain. Tiles Unlimited recommends Easy Drain linear shower drains due to their outstanding performance and stunning designs.


Time-saving Installation

Traditional shower drains are placed in the center of the shower and sloped in four directions toward the drain. Creating this four-sided slope is considerably more time consuming, add to labor costs, and can only be done with small floor tiles. In comparison, linear shower drains only require a single slope to work properly. This is easier to construct and takes much less effort to clean.


More comfort, more design

Design is without a doubt the most important aspect when building or renovating the bathroom area. Nowadays everyone wants a bathroom where they can relax and enjoy showering, much like a spa. Walk-in showers perfectly fit this trend. You can easily create more space in the bathroom by removing all thresholds and let your bathroom floor tile reach into the shower.


The walk-in shower completely eliminates the need to step in and out of a bathtub or shower base; there are no barriers or thresholds. Once, a walk-in shower was considered only as a convenience for those with mobility problems, children or the elderly. Now, a walk-in shower is a fantastic and future-proof addition to any bathroom.


Low Maintenance

A traditional shower has hard to clean parts and corners where dirt or mold can easily settle. A walk-in shower has opposite characteristics. These spacious showers often have a minimalist design with few places where water and dirt can settle. When installed correctly, a walk-in shower with linear shower drain will drain the water more quickly and efficiently, which means less cleaning and more enjoying! Being able to use large format tiles also means fewer grout joints for mold and grime to hide in.
