So, you have your bathroom renovation planned. The tile is picked out, the new vanity is ordered, and paint color has been selected. But what about accessories for your tiled shower? That’s right, there are pieces to add to your shower and we’re here to break each one down and also let you know the kind we carry here!

Drains

There are more than just one kind of shower drain these days. There’s the standard drain that we’re used to seeing in the common shapes of circles and squares, and now there’s linear drains. Linear drains are an elongated rectangular shape that tend to really capture the water flow. They can also be installed along the wall of your shower, not just the floor. Each of these drains are a great choice, it all just depends on what you style you prefer!

Niches

A shower niche is now a common part of tiled shower or even bath renovations. They’re simply a nice storage space in the wall of your shower or bath to put your soap, shampoo bottles, etc. They’re permanent recessed shelves (aka niches) in the tile wall that are finished in a special way to make them waterproof.

Seats and Benches

Whether you have limited mobility or simply want to add comfort and relaxation during your shower, a shower seat or bench will do the trick!  The use of a seat or bench transforms your shower into your own personal sauna. And to achieve that same spa-like feeling, while also saving space, a corner seat would be both comfortable and convenient!

Floor Heating

Stepping on a heated floor makes all the difference. Floor heating takes away the chill from your floors and easily brings warmth and comfort to your space. It adds a little touch of luxury that helps you relax and enjoy your new cozy environment in any room you chose to have it—especially your bathroom AND shower!

What we recommend is Nuheat Floor Heating Systems. NuHeat combines this great feeling of warmth and comfort with energy-efficient heating technology and thermostats—which help make sure you get the best temperature out of our heating system.

Thresholds and Sills

Shower thresholds and sills are as important of a part of your bathroom as the shower stalls or shower fittings. It prevents water from spilling from your shower onto the surrounding space, thus helping prevent any damage to your floor. And shower sills, like window sills are sloped properly into the shower, and help protect your surrounding floor just like thresholds.

Shower Organization

In your shower, there’s plenty of stuff you need (besides your relaxing seat or bench) like a washcloth, soap, shaving supplies, shampoo, etc. So, you need the right amount of storage to help organize those items—more than just your nice niches. We carry TileWare accessories that are perfect for any shower. Now let’s break down the possibilities to choose from:
