All About Accessories
Grab bars and other accessories can be an important addition to showers. With wet floors it can be easy to slip and fall. Adding accessories can help to reduce these types of accidents as they give you the security of something stable to hold onto. However, not all accessories were created equal. So we have compiled a list of all the accessory finished we offer and the advantages and disadvantages that go along with them..
Our basic accessoires are stainless steel. Stainless steel accessories offer plenty of durability and strength. Stainless steel is a mixture of two types of metal (usually steel and chromium or nickel). This makes it stronger and more durable than most other finishes. Stainless steel is also resistant to corrosion, scratches, and tarnishes. It may not have the shine of other finishes but it makes up for it by being easier to clean. All of our Plus 36, Plus 24, and Deluxe Shower Packages come with the durable and cost effective stainless steel accessories.
Accessories that have a chrome finish offer durability and a lustrous metallic aesthetic. Although Chrome finishes are not as durable as stainless steel, it is much more pleasing to the eye. Chrome has a shinier more reflective surface that makes your bathroom shine. This does make it a tad more difficult to clean, but chrome is resistant to rust. All of our Freedom Shower Packages come with the gorgeous and durable chrome finish grab abr accessories.
Accessories that have a brushed Nickel finish also offer durability and a lustrous metallic aesthetic. It has the same sheen that chrome does which gives it all the benefits that the chrome finish has. However, brushed nickel has a different metal texture to it that gives it a darker but beautiful aesthetic. This difference in texture also makes brushed nickel easier to clean. Nickel finishes tend to have a slightly more yellow hue to the metal. This gives it a warmer and more traditional look. All of our Freedom Shower Packages come with the dazzling and durable nickel finish grab bar accessories.
Oil Rubbed Bronze
Accessories that have an oil-rubbed bronze finish offer durability and a more traditional type aesthetic. It isn’t as lustrous as chrome might be but with its darker color it makes it much easier to clean. This material won’t show fingerprints and water marks like chrome might. The darker color also gives your bathroom a more traditional feel. All of our Freedom Shower Packages come with the durable and homey bronze finish grab bar accessories.
