We’ve discussed the aspect of universal design in relation to homes and healthcare facilities quite a few times on our blog, but as more awareness is raised on this topic, we’re going to see the same trends cross over into other industries, too. One industry that’s really starting to put universal design principles into practice is the hospitality industry.
Within the past five years or so, more and more luxury hotels and resorts have come to recognize the importance of creating bathrooms for guests that are safe and accessible, while maintaining the highly stylish aesthetic they are known for. Linear shower drains have allowed hospitality designers to achieve this task, as they do not interrupt the space’s design, but rather flow with it.
Linear shower drains from LUXE Linear Drains can help hospitality designers create such spaces with much more ease than one might initially think. You see, unlike some of our competitors, our linear shower drains can be installed faster because of the simplicity of slope construction, as well as the fact that our products can be installed independent of any waterproofing method, including hot mop, membrane, surface membrane (such as Schluter and Noble), and roll-on/paint-on membranes from Laticrete, Custom Building Products, and Mapei. Additionally, our products require less floor tiles to be cut, which yields cost savings for all projects.
Whether you are a hospitality designer creating completely accessible bathrooms for a five-star hotel or a homeowner wishing to address issues you may face as you age, linear shower drains can help you create a safer bathing environment.
