Bathroom Trends – Barrier-Free Showers

 

Barrier-free or walk-in showers are growing in popularity and are being used more and more in bathroom renovations. These popular showers are mostly installed in combination with a linear shower drain, which offers several benefits like easy cleaning, use of large format tiles and one way sloping towards the drain. Tiles Unlimited recommends Easy Drain linear shower drains due to their outstanding performance and stunning designs.

 

 

Timesaving Installation

 Traditional shower drains are placed in the center of the shower and sloped in four directions towards the drain. Creating this four-sided slope is considerably more time consuming, add to labor costs and can only be done with small floor tiles. In comparison, linear shower drains only require a single slope to work properly, this is easier to construct and takes much less effort to clean.

 

 

More comfort. More Design.

 Design is without a doubt the most important aspect when building or renovating the bathroom area. Nowadays everyone wants a bathroom where they can relax and enjoy showering, much like a spa. Walk-in showers perfectly fit this trend. You can easily create more space in the bathroom by removing all thresholds and let your bathroom floor tile reach into the shower.

 

 

The walk-in shower completely eliminates the need to step in and out of a bathtub or shower base; there are no barriers or thresholds. Once, a walk-in shower was considered only as a convenience for those with mobility issues, children or the elderly. Now, a walk-in shower is a fantastic and future-proof addition to any bathroom.

 

 

Low Maintenance

 A traditional shower has hard to clean parts and corners where dirt or mold can easily settle. A walk-in shower has opposite characteristics. These spacious showers often have a minimalist design with few places where water and dirt can settle. When installed correctly, a walk-in shower with linear shower drain will drain the water more quickly and efficiently, which means less cleaning and more enjoying! Being able to use large format tiles also means fewer grout joints for mold and grime to hide in.

George to the Rescue – Behind the Scenes

Queens-based Tiles Unlimited is making a difference again. They just wrapped up their sixth appearance on the popular NBC TV show, George to the Rescue. The home improvement show stars host George Oliphant, along with a team of designers and contractors, who rescue the homes of families in need. “Making a difference one square foot at a time” is the mission statement of Tiles Unlimited and their partnership with George to the Rescue is one way in which they live up to their mission.

View all our behind the scenes pictures and photos here. 

“This was the first time I was able to attend a reveal and it was such a heartwarming and lovely experience” said Tiles Unlimited President Joseph L. Pipitone. “You can’t help but tear up when you see all the people involved in the rescue, plus family and friends, come to cheer the family on. We plan on partnering with George to the Rescue as long as they’ll have us and I plan on attending all the future reveals we are involved in.”

 

 

The reveal is when the family being rescued gets to see their home renovations for the first time. All the people involved in the rescue, as well as family and friends gather outside to cheer the family on as they emerge from their home to thank all those who were involved in the rescue. From there, everyone is invited inside to see all the changes done by George and his team.

 

This rescue, airing on Saturday October 28th, features the Demmers family of Nassau County, NY. The episode centers on their son, Ethan, who faces significant mobility challenges from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. His parents, both teachers, have become inspiring advocates for him and others in their Nassau County community. Despite the challenges they face on a constant basis due to this degenerative disease, the family is truly some of the most positive and warm people we’ve ever met.

 

 

The episode will showcase the transformation of the family’s first floor into an open floor plan with accessibility for Ethan being the primary focus. Ethan’s first floor bedroom and bathroom will also be renovated. Suffice it to say, the renovations are beautiful and solved their accessibility issue. We can’t share much more until the show airs but we can tell you that Ethan has an amazing bedroom and bathroom now. Tyler Wisler’s bathroom design is spectacular.

 

Some very special thanks go out to Donato’s Construction, Tile & Marble. Not only did they do an amazing job on a very difficult bathroom tile installation, they were called in the night before the reveal to complete the kitchen backsplash in time for filming the next morning. FYI, Donato’s team passed on the annual Tiles Unlimited Brews & BBQ Bash to make sure the project was completed on time.

 

 

This episode marked the first time that the George to the Rescue crew came to the Tiles Unlimited showroom. All previous episodes were filmed on location. Host George Oliphant and designer Tyler Wisler came to the showroom to select tile for the kitchen backsplash and bathroom. “It was a lot of fun having George, Tyler and the crew here to film scenes and select tile. It gave us more insight into how each episode takes shape” said Pipitone.

 

Grab your box of tissues and watch this uplifting episode on Saturday morning October 28th on WNBC channel 4 at 9:30. It will be a great way to start your day. Until then, enjoy the Tiles Unlimited picture and movie gallery with a behind the scenes look at filming in the showroom.
