acrylic shower or tile shower, Bench or not?
I am looking to redo our main floor bathroom. It s is small 5 X 7 bathroom. It currently has a tub which we are repalcing with a shower. We love the look of a tiled shower but we are afaid of leaking and keeping the grout clean (more afraid of leaking though). We have a finished basement below. Sum contractors that have come in told us to do a tiled shower and not to worry and others are strongly against it saying more problems than it is worth. (1 of these contractors is also a more highend contractor in the area who is against tile showers). What are others experiences with this. We are also trying to deside if we should add a bench or not. I don't like the look of a self like bench want a finished look. Thinking of doing it in the corner angled so we do not have to move shower plumbing to opposite wall (currently we have toilet, than sink, than shower all on 1 wall, & we are moving toilet and sink so we can get in a 24" vanity against wall. Right now have small pedistal). Help!
