Small Shower Install questions

Posted by springvillegardens (My Page) on

I have taken out my fiberglass tile enclosure and am planning on putting in a tile shower, I plan to get the pan that can be tiled over. the tile I'd like to use is Daltile Continental Slate - Tuscan Blue. I'd like to use the 12 x 18 field tile on the walls in a brick pattern horizontally and the 3 x 3 mosaic tiles on the floor. The shower is 3 ft x 4 ft.

My question is Daltile carries a 3 x 12 bullnose tile - can I use that for the step up into the shower or should I use the mosaic tile over the step? I've seen both used. what do you think? For the edge would I need to use one of those Schluter edges? And what about the edge of the shower front? should I use the bullnose there?

Thanks for your advice.

Have you considered a solid piece of material for your curb top? I used the same granite as my vanity top. no edge material would be needed. will you be installing a shower door?

and regarding the other tile edges, I used bullnose in one bath and schluter edging in the other and I like the schluter much better. i think it depends on your style.

Hi jules8, thanks, I want a cohesive look so plan to use the 12 x 18 pieces of tile on step in. I do like a modern look so will go with the schluter.

just got back from tile store and saw another tile that no 200 pieces are the same by American Olean tile
