Here’s what you can customize:

  • Shower walls. Made of stone from American quarries, our walls come in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns to fit your style. They’re custom-fitted and require minimal upkeep.
  • Coordinating faucets. Offered in a variety of styles and finishes, our showerheads use advanced shower technology to deliver superior sprays that satisfy every mood and need.
  • Storage and organization. Give all your products a place to live with the help of LuxStone accessories, including the Shower Locker®, Floating Shelf or Shower Barre. Plus, enjoy peace of mind from a moveable seat that offers extra stability both in and out of your shower.
  • Low entry bases. With a sleek design, our low-threshold shower bases add elegance to your bathroom. In addition, they pair beautifully with your design and color choices and come in any size and shape you want.
  • Glass doors. Our frosted or clear glass shower doors create a polished look, while delivering smooth and quiet sliding or pivot action for your convenience.
