Why Every Home Should Utilise Custom Grates

Posted on: 22 November 2021

When it comes to what you want and value most in a home, every person will likely have a different answer. No two homes are exactly alike and so building your dream home should be a unique and individual process. However, often people will feel constricted by something very simple but equally frustrating: the grates used in their drainage. Whether that be in your garage or your shower, custom grates serve an important role in creating the exact home that you want. Here are a few reasons why every home should have custom grates installed, especially if they are being designed from scratch.

Make the Shower of Your Dreams

Showers are one of the most important areas of your home and serve a central part of your daily routine. A lot of people love showers and would prefer to have large ones that take full advantage of the space. The only thing stopping you can be the miniature grates that you find in any home goods store. Luckily many custom grate manufacturers can tailor it to your project so that you can have a large grate that is not ugly or that gets in the way, but rather simply does its job in the background.

Create a Useful Workspace

If you are someone who is more into cars or mechanical projects and wants to create a workspace in their garage or shed that is safe and easy to use then you will also need custom grates to fit your new area. Not only are these grates used to drain away water when you clean out certain aspects of your projects, but it is also necessary to allow all the excess oils and more toxic chemicals that can come spilling out of cars and your other projects. Large grates that you can still walk on with no problem are vital to any kind of workspace like this.

Unique Features 

Perhaps you want a true one-of-a-kind feature in your home that you don't think anyone else will have and are struggling to find a way to make it work. Whether that is an outside shower for those who live on the beach or an indoor fountain that dazzles guests as they come in. Whatever your needs are, if they revolve around water and drainage of any kind then you should always talk to a custom grates manufacturer who can help design and install the images you have in your head. 


How to Construct a House

Hello, my name is Lisa and this is my blog. I live in Perth, Australia and for the past two years, I have been working on my home to improve it. My husband works away a lot, so the upkeep of the family home is completely in my hands. At first, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. Thankfully, my brother works as a contractor and knows about electrical wiring, plumbing and general construction. He gave me some great advice so I decided to start this blog so I could pass on his wisdom to others. I hope you enjoy my blog.
