Elegant Simplicity Is the Latest Trend in Premium Shower Hardware

January 31, 2024

U.S. homeowners are adopting a bathroom design trend that has grown in popularity in Europe – visually simple, clean shower hardware. By hiding the mounting mechanisms that hold shower hinges and sliders in place, the overall look of the bathroom is decluttered and modernized.

This trend is driven by a design aesthetic that emphasizes the elegant statement of glass. Bathroom glass – from exterior windows, light fixtures, mirrors, and shower panels – is the star of the show. Today’s design sensibilities necessitate that bathroom hardware complement, not distract from, the glass featured in a bathroom.  

To help facilitate this sleek look, we invented a way to hide the mounting mechanisms of our shower hardware – specifically shower door sliders and hinges. By covering the mounting screws, the look of the hardware specifically and the shower enclosure in general is immediately elevated. The result may sound subtle, but its effect is significant, with the metal hinges or sliders creating a sophisticated, uninterrupted look that provides visual intrigue without overpowering the glass.

Ultra-Reliable Performance
High-end, European-inspired design must be mirrored by superior performance. The operation of our new sliders and hinges matches their exceptional aesthetics. Each premium shower slider line has been thoroughly tested to 20,000 cycles to ensure long-lasting, flawless operation. Our new glass shower door hinges were tested to 100,000 cycles, 5X the industry standard for performance testing. 

Our new premium shower hardware lines, all featuring hidden mounting mechanisms, include:
