All About LuxStone
LuxStone by Kohler is an exciting development in shower wall design. It offers low porosity, low maintenance, high durability, and easy installation at a much more affordable cost than tile or granite. Home Forever Baths is proud to be an authorized dealer of Luxstone and other high-quality, attractive Kohler products in Northern Illinois.
Issues with Other Materials
Tile and granite are both costly and difficult to install. The porosity of grout and granite means a good deal of scrubbing to keep them clean. Tiles can crack and break and you can be sure that the grout will need to be replaced at some future point, especially where it joins tubs or other materials. Granite can be a long-lasting option, but it will always look just like granite!
While fiberglass and acrylic options are fairly simple to install and relatively low in cost, we still need to consider the inevitable cost of the materials’ failure. Both will stain over time, and scrubbing can wear away the surface and impart scratches and, ultimately, more staining. They don’t deal well with blunt force. Unfortunately, your new fiberglass or acrylic shower material is not likely to stand the test of time.
LuxStone addresses these issues, combining the ease of installation, easy cleanup, and low cost of fiberglass and acrylic with the durability of granite and the customizability of tile. It will stand up to daily use for as long as it’s in your bathroom. Kohler is so confident that they offer a lifetime warranty!
LuxStone is built to last. It is made from a proprietary blend of crushed stone and other natural materials that make it flexible for easy installation but rock solid once it is in place. It won’t chip like tile or fade like other materials, and it will remain in like-new condition for the lifetime of your bathroom.
LuxStone is available in a wider range of design options than stone, fiberglass or acrylic. Designs range in appearance from natural stone to a variety of tile colors and texture patterns. All LuxStone designs are exclusive to Kohler, so you can be sure you’ll end up with a bathroom that is uniquely you. Mix and match LuxStone designs to have a tiled look in the shower and a stone look behind the sink, or a different pattern in the shower niche than in the rest of the wall. The options are limitless with LuxStone!
LuxStone is custom cut to fit precisely into the space you have. Hidden joints make a smooth appearance on every surface. Home Forever Baths can do a custom LuxStone shower installation, complete with faucets and other fixtures, in one or two days in most cases.
While subway tile or granite can cost a fortune to purchase and install, LuxStone can recreate those looks at a much lower cost, and with durability and hygienic qualities that exceed the tile. Kohler is so confident in the quality of LuxStone that they offer a lifetime limited warranty on the product and the installation, which we at Home Forever Baths are proud to honor.
LuxStone doesn’t require grout and it doesn’t stain. This makes cleanup a breeze with any multi-surface cleaner of your choice. LuxStone won’t scratch with abrasive cleaning tools like brushes and scrubbers, but it’s so resistant to staining that a washcloth is all you’ll need to get the job done!
Nonporous: No More Mold or Mildew!
With LuxStone you don’t have to worry about funky stuff growing on your shower walls any longer. The surface is smooth and incredibly durable, and the very inventive joint style keeps caulk and silicone hidden not only from view, but from mold and mildew as well.
