Quadrato offers art deco styling with a twist

01 November 2023

The trend for frame style and art deco inspired shower screens is gathering pace. So how can your choice of shower hardware help to achieve a stylishly sophisticated look that’s as personal as the bathroom itself?

Firstly, let’s look at where the trend has sprung from. Metal framework on showers draws its inspiration from an industrial age and has for a long time been seen on internal glass partitions and room dividers. This look is inspired largely by the steel framed windows that were quite commonplace in the early 19th Century. These would have been distinguished by a thin steel grid around the sections of the glass. It’s a look that lives on for many properties of that era and even features on famous landmarks, including the Houses of Parliament.

Now it’s a huge look in domestic bathrooms too, lending the space an elegant aesthetic and one that needn’t be reserved for traditionally styled homes and larger bathrooms. In fact, a modern bathroom often lends itself to this industrial-style aesthetic, while the clean, simple lines and understated design has maximum appeal in compact situations.

Walk-in wet rooms and shower areas are a go-to look in classic and contemporary settings of course, with such steel-framed screens offering a visually striking way to achieve this. The bathroom can feel light and inclusive while retaining an element of privacy and ‘zoning’ in an otherwise open-plan space.

Get the look, your way with Quadrato

CRL Bespoke Showers enable you to take this look and make it your own. By using the CRL flatbar – a strip of metal that can be easily installed on glass shower frames – a stunning grid effect can be created with Quadrato. With your choice of horizontal and vertical lines, you can specify how the metal framework is set out to make it a truly bespoke piece that perfectly suits your space.

Even more creative freedom is achieved with the choice of finishes available on the metal – with on-trend metals available such as Satin Anodised, Bright Gold Anodised, Satin Brass and Matte Black, your shower area can be on-trend and truly individual. Teamed with colour coordinating U-channels and CRL corner profiles, creating a cohesive look is simple.

To streamline the sought-after and highly trending industrial aesthetic, why not consider shower brassware and taps in a finish to match, tying the whole look together in style.
