Shower Floors Re-Imagined
The new Cosmopolitan Collection from MTI Baths offers builders a chic selection of shower bases, bringing modern flair and sophistication to the bathroom. With an array of styles, sizes, textures and colors to choose from, the Cosmopolitan shower base offers an impressive level of flexibility and is a smart choice for any bathroom remodel or design plan.
The shower bases in the Cosmopolitan Collection have a sleek and clean aesthetic with no unsightly grout lines to maintain — perfect for a minimalistic space. The bases are offered in three styles: Lado, an end drain with a uniquely curved matching end drain cover; Centrar, a center drain with unique cover; and Artesa, a covered trough end drain.
Available with two different organic texture options and four color options: white, gray, black and sand. They feature low-profile designs with multiple thresholds for the ultimate in installation flexibility. The shallow design allows them to be neatly recessed into the floor for a seamless look. At the same time, the low-profile silhouette promotes easy entrance and exit for people of all ages and abilities.
Like all products in the Cosmopolitan Collection, the bases are crafted from cast-engineered stone, using MTI’s signature mineral composite blend of organic Dolomitic limestone. After a proprietary process, the bases are finished by hand for amazing durability and lasting beauty. The result is a nonporous surface resistant to scratches, stains, mold and mildew, and easy to clean and maintain.
Its one-piece design is factory-installed and equipped with a tile flange for a watertight fit. The Cosmopolitan Collection also includes a high-style line of freestanding tubs and distinctive sinks to complete the ultimate en suite bathroom design.

Bold and Beautiful Bath Faucet
The Mastercraft 3300 deck-mounted bath mixer from Barber Wilsons makes a definitive style statement. Made from durable, long-lasting solid brass in the heart of England, the original headworks of this collection were sketched out by Dame Bridget D’Oyle–Carte at the Barber Wilsons factory in the late 1920s. Since then, they continue to produce not an Art Deco reproduction but an original.
The distinctive modern lines and elegant poise of the Mastercraft 3300 bath mixer are at home in both traditional and contemporary settings. Deck-mounted with pillar unions, this model comes with a cross-head or lever tap, depending on preference. The indices, finish and unions can also be customized to create the perfect version for any bath design. It is offered in 18 stunning finish options.
The exceptional fixtures and fittings highlighted here define the look of today’s on-trend homes, simplifying luxury and making it accessible for all. There are so many novel options to choose from — further proof of the endless innovations and creativity that are hallmarks of the kitchen and bath industry. We are intrigued to see what lies ahead next year and look forward to the unique new products in the coming months.
