Slant the shower bench?
In our bath remodel, the granite deck surrounding the tub will continue into the shower to create a bench (similar to the photo - just pretend the tile surrounding the tub is actually granite). Our contractor is suggesting we slightly slant the granite that forms the bench so that the water from the shower will drip off. To do this, we'll need to create a seam at the point the tub decking ends and the shower bench begins. Otherwise, the granite would be continuous from the tub surround into the shower with no seam.
I'm really not crazy about creating the seam. Is it such a bad thing if water from the shower pools on top of the granite bench?
