The Best Tile for the Shower
Now that you have decided which type of tile you will use in the remodel of your bathroom, what types of shower tile can you choose for the shower? Yes, the shower is a part of the bathroom, but it wouldn’t do to tile the shower with just any kind of tile that would be suitable for the bathroom walls and floor.
Tile that Stands Up to Water
The shower is the only space in the room that is completely inundated with water besides the bathtub. Ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles are appropriate for the walls and floor of the shower because they are able to resist being soaked with water. The mortar that surrounds the tiles must also be sealed against soaking in water.
You could choose glass tiles or even glass mosaic tiles to cover the shower walls. They are colorful and reflective and you can be very creative if you just use these tiles as accents on ceramic or porcelain tile walls. Use your imagination to craft concentric squares or horizontal lines for more visual interest in the shower.
Be careful to match the colors of the shower tiles with the rest of the room for an overall pleasing effect. You’ll have hundreds of styles and designs from which to choose.
