Linear Drain in the shower

A linear drain is a thin wide drain that is designed into the shower pan during a bathroom remodel. It will require some planning, or experience, to correctly execute. The shower floor can be a flat surface and sloped to the drain. Most showers have a “Bowl” design with the drain in the middle.

Solid Surface Curb Top

A curb is the shower feature that you step over that is designed to keep water from migrating out the door onto the bathroom floor. It is usually tiled with finished tile on each side or metal trim. Covering the top of the curb with a neutral color solid surface material improves the clean look of a shower curb.
