A shower drain is not an item that many people give a lot of their attention. It is the round silver piece that blocks hair and other debris from going down the drain into the pipes. Plumbers and homeowners worship this tiny piece of metal. It prevents many problems that can occur down the road. It usually only has to satisfy two generic needs: It has to be sturdy enough to do proper blocking, and it must be porous enough to still allow water to drain sufficiently.
DesignerDrains.com has elevated the status of this little piece of metal by giving it some appealing design features. They are square or round and made from reclaimed stainless steel. The designs are classic or geometric, or they are patterns from nature, architecture, art history or the oceans.
The scrolls design, which resembles a sprawling sun with curlicue rays, is a popular design. With a small center hole, the drain is slightly feminine and in some ways resembles a woman’s hair. Other scroll designs available have slightly more intricate designs.
The art history drains are a bit more complex. The kokopelli and spray of leaves designs seem to have required a lot of etching. The kokopelli design features two of the mythical humpbacked, fertility creatures playing their signature flutes and facing each other. One is upside down; the other is right side up.
Square drains feature some of the same designs. They are centered in thicker borders and wider to accommodate the different shape of drains. There is something designer to fit a range of tastes.
