And now finally: A stylish shower drain

A pet peeve of mine is cheap shower drains. You may think I have too much time on my hands to worry about the state of drains. Being in the business, I have seen way too many ugly drains and by ugly I mean the corroded powder coated type with the screw holes showing, usually with a screw missing or a bent drain cover.

Finally, a faucet manufacture has addressed the state of drains.
Introducing the StyleDrain™ from California Faucets—the First “Decorative” Shower Drain with fast-flow efficiency
Form and function fuse in the world’s first decorative, highly proficient shower drain. California Faucets’ groundbreaking StyleDrain™ boasts style previously unseen in a shower drain. Indeed, StyleDrain™ is the alternative to the run-of-the-mill, plain-Jane industrial drain.

Whether a complex shower system with multiple water spray applications or simple shower with a single head, StyleDrain™ delivers deluxe style in tune with the most luxurious bath decors.

“Consumers are frustrated with the limited selection of lackluster, industrial-style drains available,” explains Jeff Silverstein, president of California Faucets. “A gorgeous, richly designed shower with an unattractive and clunky commercial drain didn’t sit well with us. Our patent-pending, groundbreaking StyleDrain™ couples a streamlined, stylish design with extraordinarily fast draining capability. We believe style should flow from beginning to end.”

A Shower of Complements
Available in a variety of 30 finishes, this new decorative drain offers an unadorned simplicity. Unlike today’s typical, industrial-style drains with their bulky, unsightly screws on display, StyleDrain™ boasts California Faucets’ patent-pending design with no visible screws and flush grill plate for smooth styling and ultimate foot comfort.

StyleDrain™ perfectly complements California Faucets’ wide range of designs, from custom faucets to shower systems. The two debuting StyleDrain™ designs are square shaped and feature patterns that blend seamlessly with any bathroom motif, traditional to art deco to contemporary.

Fast-flow Efficiency
But it’s not just a pretty drain that’s all show and no work—you won’t be left standing in a puddle. Whether you have a beautiful shower with one showerhead or a spa-inspired system customized with multiple fittings including body sprays, rain bars, multiple shower heads and more, StyleDrain™ handles water flow at the highest level of efficiency.

Adding to the sense of style is the unique square shape. In contrast to typical round shaped drains, StyleDrain™ is a dream for bathroom remodeling. It allows hassle-free installation simply because it’s much easier and cost effective to cut tile to accommodate a square drain than a round drain.

  1. I’ve just spent a bundle on a new bathroom and sure enough, they installed the cheapest shower drain they could find. What an eye-sore! Now, I just hope I can replace it without much trouble. Ha!
