Shower wastes, sometimes known as shower grates, are almost always an afterthought when it comes to completing the look of your bathroom. The shower waste has two important aspects, though: functionality and visual appeal. Let's take a good look at both of these facets.
Let's face it, drains are a hassle to maintain. There is nothing more annoying than a poorly maintained shower waste that attracts grime and hairs. If you've ever had to use drain cleaner or a plunger, you can appreciate the importance of a shower waste. Our assortment of shower wastes are ideal for mitigating grime and blockages; however, it's always a good idea to maintain a consistent shower-cleaning regime, because no shower waste in the world is clean forever, no matter how shiny it was when you first installed it.
A shower waste that works well is often taken for granted, but a shower waste that works but has no visual appeal can really make or break the overall look of a bathroom. To most people, a shower waste that blends in harmoniously with the rest of the shower is the cherry on the cake. Complementary colours or materials work best, and sometimes it is worth spending a little bit extra if it means you're going to have a shower waste that not only works well, but looks nice too.
Although some may consider thinking about shower wastes in any depth to be a waste of time, just remember that, in most instances, a waste will be in your shower for decades; you want to get it right the first time, because buying and installing a new one is one extra headache nobody wants to deal with.
When considering which shower waste is the most suitable for your shower, make sure you take a sufficient amount of time to prioritise both functionality and visual appeal before price, and remember that a shower waste will ideally last you a lifetime.
