Floor-level showers – for unprecedented freedom

The continuous floor surface makes the bathroom look uncluttered while enhancing comfort

Say hello to an uncluttered bathroom – and goodbye to edges and stumbling blocks. The floor-level shower – which seamlessly adjoins the remaining bathroom surface – is the latest trend in bathroom planning. An increasing amount of bathroom owners are benefiting from visual spaciousness and freedom of movement. Stepless access to a pleasurable shower experience can already be considered synonymous with contemporary bathroom architecture. The trend has also become a success story for bathroom renovations. The shower specialist HÜPPE estimates that a good 30 percent of its shower enclosures are installed flush with the floor.

Floor-level installation in new constructions and for modernization

Thanks to state-of-the-art bathroom technology, the floor-level shower fits in perfectly with virtually any environment. This applies both to new constructions and modernizations – not to mention a lot of old building renovations. This is all down to innovative, space-saving drain systems and extra-flat shower tubs that merge seamlessly into the floor after installation. In these bathrooms, you go straight from the vanity or WC into the shower without encountering any obstacles. This makes even small rooms appear larger. There are no steps dividing up the bathroom, offering ultimate comfort for all age groups.

Obstacle-free shower enjoyment – with ease of maintenance as a bonus

The seamless look can be implemented in ceramic or stone. The bathroom may be fully tiled, but color-coordinated, enameled shower areas are also available. In keeping with the trend of uncluttered bathroom architecture, an innovation has emerged which is literally “on the edge”: in the latest bathrooms, the drain disappears into the wall so that it is no longer in the way when entering the shower – the water flows into a concealed gutter at the side, a discreet opening in the wall. This purist design, which focuses on maximum clarity and transparency in the bathroom, is perfectly complemented by the Raindance Rainmaker which is installed flush with the ceiling. The overhead showers and side showers in the Axor ShowerCollection also offer luxurious water indulgence in a clear design.

As “walk-in” solutions, floor-level showers are particularly creative and appeal to the design-conscious. This option does away with doors, completely integrating the shower area into the bathroom. And that’s not all – the merging of the shower and the bathroom floor also makes this solution particularly low-maintenance. It’s no wonder that this trend is also extremely attractive in addition to being practical and safe.
