Tile is the go-to material for bathroom showers and floors–and while it can improve the look and feel of the space, it has one huge drawback: grout lines. These can become stained (or worse, a breeding ground for mold) over time, and getting rid of it will take hours of thorough cleaning and scrubbing. The good news is that there are many different ways to eliminate your bathroom grout gripes. Total Bath Systems LuxStone™ of Connecticut, one of the trusted bathroom conversion companies in the area, shares some of them here.
- Invest in grout-free shower walls. Homeowners used to go for fake-looking fiberglass or acrylic shower walls as an alternative to tile. But those have gone the way of disco, making way for tougher and better-looking options. Total Bath Systems LuxStone™ of Connecticut, for example, offers top-tier KOHLER® LuxStone™ shower wall panels.
As one of the premier shower installation companies in the area, we aim to provide you with the best options. Our KOHLER® LuxStone™ shower wall panels use a proprietary blend of crushed marble and fiber strands, creating a surface that will not crack, chip, or stain. Unlike tiles, our shower wall panels are non-porous, eliminating the potential of mold growth and mildew. Plus, they are available in a modern matte finish and a wide selection of patterns and colors for easy customization.
- Replace your tile shower pan or base. Did you know that tile shower pans not only develop mold in the grout, but can also become a source of leaks due to sloppy installation? You can avoid this, fortunately, by picking an alternative material as the base. Take our KOHLER® LuxStone™, for instance. They are impervious to cracks and chips, and only require minimal cleaning. What’s more, they are available in a low-profile barrier that makes the shower safer and more accessible.
- Get rid of the tile niches. Most showers come with a recessed tile niche where you can place soaps and shampoo bottles. But again, they are difficult to clean once they become stained or moldy. Instead, choose from the many customizable shower accessories offered by your leading shower replacement contractors, Total Bath Systems LuxStone™ of Connecticut. When paired with our maintenance-free shower wall panels, our shower lockers and floating shelves can increase functionality in your space–and you won’t need to worry as much about regular cleaning.
