Scouring the Web for bath and shower remodeling companies to quickly renovate your bathroom? The most common reasons for remodeling a bathroom include:

  • The bathroom looks dated and dingy. This can make your home’s market value plummet. Plus it’s embarrassing when guests ask to use the bathroom.
  • There is a need for more space.
  • The plumbing and/or the fixtures need work or replacement.
  • The walls and floors, especially in the shower or bath area, are heavily stained.

Whatever you need with your new bathroom, consider installing a KOHLER® LuxStone™ Shower. Many shower replacement contractors recommend LuxStone because of its many benefits over other shower walls. Here are some of the most common shower wall materials and how they compare to LuxStone:


Tile enjoys a reputation for being the first thing that comes to mind when you think of shower and bathroom walls. It’s been used for a long time and it’s available in many color and pattern options, often customizable. However, tile installation is a lengthy process involving laying the tile, grouting, and then sealing. As tile and grout are porous, there is space everywhere for soap scum and mildew. If you don’t clean and maintain tile, it will become unsightly over time.


Granite is classy and timeless. It’s also highly durable. The problem with granite is that it’s not easy to install. The contractor has to cut matching slabs because every piece is unique. Granite is a porous surface too, so sealing should be done well by a pro. Otherwise, you’ll have to deal with stains and mildew.


Those on a budget often consider fiberglass as it costs much less than other materials. However, it doesn’t last quite as long as its pricier counterparts. Your options are also limited, so personalization can be a problem. You might be able to save during installation, but after a short time, you might want to get rid of it because it stains easily.


Acrylic is usually used to cover other surfaces, like stained or old tile. There aren’t many options, either. It might be easy to maintain and clean, but it doesn’t add value to your home.

Advantages of LuxStone

LuxStone doesn’t have any of the problems associated with the other materials. It’s nonporous so it doesn’t retain stains and grime. LuxStone is made of highly durable fiber strands combined with American marble and stone.

You can choose from a wide variety of patterns and colors that will give your shower a timeless look. The best designers from KOHLER® handpicked the highly customizable LuxStone collection to make your bathroom look instantly better. Enjoy the excellent return on your investment, as LuxStone is highly durable and long-lasting. It only takes a day or two to install your LuxStone premium shower.
