At the core of a great shower is a great shower drain. But which shower grate is the right one for your shower? The answer is simple: the best shower drainage is the one that matches the look of your bathroom and also scores well on functionality. When it comes to the choice of bathroom drainage, the sky's the limit, so when it comes to choosing a drainage type for your bathroom, it all depends on what is right for you.
What to look for when selecting a drain
When choosing drainage for your bathroom, make sure it is Australian Standard approved and comes with a warranty. Most manufacturers offer a warranty, sometimes of five years, subject to some conditions. Style is also important. Bathrooms have become more than a functional space to keep yourself clean. They are a place of sanctuary for some people, with a lot of effort spent on creating an aesthetically pleasing space. Your choice of shower floor drain should match the style you have chosen in your bathroom. This is also true for your bathroom floor drain, which you may wish to install as a discrete addition to your floor or opt for a more ornate drain.
A selection of the shower drain types is featured below. These higher-flow-rate grates can handle much more water flow and don't sacrifice style at all. There is nothing more annoying than standing in a puddle of water while you shower or having to reduce shower water flow to prevent your shower from flooding into the bathroom. Opting for a higher flow rate drain, such as a shower channel drain, will ensure your shower is a pleasurable experience.
