Bathroom design trends come and go, but there’s one that will remain a timeless favorite – low or no-threshold shower bases. But how exactly does this design option benefit you?
- Allow for a safer and more accessible shower experience. Simply put, the shower base is the floor of a shower. It serves as the foundation of the shower walls and ensures that water will be channeled into the drain, not into your basement or floorboards. The low-threshold part is exactly what it is – the shower base has no curb or surrounding edge to it. Because of their design, low-threshold shower bases can accommodate people of all ages and abilities. They make stepping into and out of the shower much safer, eliminating the potential for trip and fall accidents.
- Update the look of your bathroom. Low-threshold bases are customizable. One of the leading walk-in bath companies in the area, Elite Bathrooms LuxStone of Long Island, offers LuxStone® low-threshold shower bases in different shapes, sizes and drain orientations. They can be paired beautifully with KOHLER® LuxStone shower systems of any design or color. And if you want to add even more security and comfort to the space, you can opt for the Tresham® shower base, a low-threshold choice that comes with built-in seating.
- Make cleaning the shower easier. Because a low-threshold shower base feels less closed in, you’ll have an easier time cleaning the space. This means no more wriggling around just to deal with any crevices you may have missed. Low-threshold shower bases can also add a more spacious look to your bath space. Their design doesn’t create a visual break the way curbed shower bases do. This makes your shower appear larger and more open.
