5 Best Options for Tile-in Linear Shower Drains

When it comes to designing the perfect shower, the styles achievable are limited only by your imagination and the materials used. While not always unsightly, the drain is a familiar yet somewhat mundane element in most homes. Typically, it's a round or square drain in the middle of the shower floor, with a noticeable slope to the tile around it. To update the look and break from tradition, consider switching to tile-in linear drains. These are also known as infinitely drains, offering a seamless integration with the surrounding tile and providing both aesthetic appeal and functionality.

What Is a Tile-In Linear Drain?

Tile-in linear shower drains come in various options to fit any shower size and unique installation plans, making them a sought-after alternative to traditional small point drains. Also known as tile-insert drains, these drains feature a tileable drain grate that seamlessly blends with the surrounding wall and flooring tile design, creating a concealed look that is very pleasing to the eye. Additionally, a built-in channel in the shower floor easily gathers water before directing it to the drain outlet, ensuring efficient drainage and preventing pooling. When considering an upgrade to your shower or bath, exploring the versatility and hygienic benefits of tile-in linear drains is certainly worthwhile.
