It may come as a surprise, but we in the architecture and design world pay a lot of attention to the shower drain. The round, centered shower drain is too common for our tastes. We are constantly on the look-out for some special, elegant solutions. Especially exciting are products that make the drain nearly invisible, or those that create flush, clean lines.
The TileDrain by Infinity Drain is basically a stainless steel pan that allows for installation of the same tile material as the surrounding shower area. It comes in three sizes, rectangular or square shaped.
The Ceramic Shower Drain by Royal Mosa is similar to the TileDrain, but goes even further in its simplicity as it eliminates any visible stainless steel edges. This product comes in eight different colors, matching the Royal Mosa tile collections, and recently won the Design Plus Award 2011.
The CeraLine by Dallmer is a minimal smooth stainless steel pan.
Dallmer’s CeraNiveau Drain is similar to the CeraLine, but is shorter and has a stainless steel frame.
I really like the round perforations of this DG38 model by Infinity Drain.
