Options for Shower Floors

Ceramic is most commonly used floor tile. The shower tile types depend on the size of the room and the type of look you want. The floors of bathrooms require a bit of texture in the tile. A shiny floor will be slippery, so do not use polished tiles. Floor tiles or tiles in a shower should be somewhat rough so that your feet don’t stick. The best option for tiled shower floors is tile 12 x 12 inch (30 x 30 cm) or 8 x 8 inch (30 x 30 cm).

Ceramic tiles

Ceramic tiles are suitable for use on shower floors as they are durable. The floors of the bathrooms consume moisture, making them prone to damage. Ceramic is resistant to water and moisture. Ceramic tiles used in showers are fairly easy to clean. A matte finish is beneficial because it makes them less slippery. Mosaic tiles or small tiles are not slippery. It is best to hire a professional to install ceramic tiles on the bathroom floor.

Pebble tiles

Pebble tiles are non-slip, eliminating the worry of falling on the floor of the shower while bathing. These tiles also massage the skin, which makes you feel relaxed. The tiles are relatively easy to install on the shower floor. You do not need a special tool to cut the reinforcing mesh on their backing as the scissors work just fine. Pebble tiles so not break or scratch and look elegant and natural.

Slate tiles

Slate tiles are another good choice to replace wood floors. They are relatively easy to remove and do not require the maintenance of a polished appearance. Slate tiles should only be swept and scrubbed, unlike wooden floors that require upkeep.

Maintenance shower

Tiles with grout joints may be difficult to keep clean.  Current tiles are made mostly from the same material used to make ceramic figurines. Shower tiles are available in many colors and textures; the choice often depends on the convenience of maintenance. One of the best ways to ensure that your shower tiles stay like new is to dry the water off of them after each shower. You can use a squeegee, window cleaner to remove dirt and a towel to remove the water completely from the floor of the shower.
