Best surfaces for a shower in hard water

bahaccaJuly 3, 2012

I currently have white 4 in. tiles in my master shower. I HATE THEM! The grout is DISGUSTING(it is a 25 year old shower after all), not even straight bleach gets it clean. I want to rip it all out and start fresh. We have VERY hard water, though. I love the look of slab and larger tiles and love the look of natural stone, but I'm afraid the hard water will destroy those tiles. Am I correct in my assumptions? I am not in love with grout, so was thinking a solid surface would be about 800x easier to clean, but what surface?

A good quality porcelean tile looks great and will not "destroy" over time.
