Drains are an essential part of any modern plumbing system, yet they often go unnoticed and underappreciated in our sinks and showers. Many people think all drains are the same, but you can spice up your home with decorative drains that are just as unique and beautiful as they are functional.
Here is a look at what decorative drains are and why you might choose to put one in your kitchen or bathroom.

What Are Decorative Drains?

As opposed to basic and standard drains that you see every day, decorative drains are stylish, unique, and have little details that add something special to your fixtures. These types of drains are offered in various colors, finishes, and patterns so you can match them to your existing décor and add eye-catching appeal every time you walk into the room.

Some of the most popular features of decorative drains include geometric shapes, chrome finishes, and high-end luxury detailing. Polished nickel, antique brass, matte black, rustic bronze, and satin gold are also popular finishes for decorative shower drains.

Why Get a Decorative Drain?

There are many reasons why homeowners choose decorative drains, including adding a unique and stylish touch to a home. Drain replacement is an easy and affordable way to give your rooms more personality and interesting features without breaking your budget or taking up a lot of your time on a renovation project.

Adding a new drain might seem overly simple, but even little touches like this can transform your house into a beautiful place that looks and feels like home. Better yet, a decorative drain can serve as a source for inspiration or even tie together other design elements in a room that completes the look you’re going for.

Functionality of a Decorative Drain

Although decorative drains are often chosen for their aesthetic appeal, it is also very important that they are just as functional as a standard drain. The basic function of a drain is to allow water to flow through it, so decorative features should never hinder this process.

Instead, decorative drains should allow a steady flow of water, be easy to clean, and be low-maintenance with long-term use. There are different types of sink drains, for example, that come in decorative designs, such as press-and-seal drains, twist-and-turn drains, grid or strainer drains, and chain-and-plug drains.

It’s also fun to get a designer drain cover that does not affect the functionality of your drain but adds an interesting pattern to your drain area for a little unexpected inspiration. Designer drain covers can serve as a subtle reminder of your love for nature, your heritage, your artistic sensibilities, or your appreciation for creativity and luxury.
