When it comes time to remodel a bathroom Bloomington homeowners are faced with the choice of either installing a prefabricated shower or a tile shower. Both offer notable benefits that homeowners should keep in mind. The former makes for a quick installation process, and the latter offers a great deal of design versatility. Here we’ll be discussing the unique advantages offered by tile showers. We encourage you to read on, and to consider adding a tile shower to your Bloomington home.
Tile Shower Advantages
Customization—When it comes to tile showers your options are virtually endless. Tile showers are constructed onsite, meaning they can be made to fit almost any space. They’re great for odd shaped bathrooms or unconventional spaces. We recommend that you leave the installation of your tile shower to the professionals, as any mistakes made during the installation process tend to stand out. Luckily, the design experts at Floor Coverings International Bloomington will complete your tile shower installation from start to finish!
Variety—Tile showers can be made from a variety of different materials. Three popular options include glass tile, stone tile, and ceramic tile. Ceramic and glass tile offer the benefit of a wide range of colors and levels of translucency. Stone tile, on the other hand, offers natural color variation unmatched by almost any other flooring material. All three types are durable and relatively easy to maintain. A decision between the three is largely a matter of personal preference.
Tile Shower Precautions
Slippery When Wet—Tiles can be slippery when wet so we don’t recommend that you use large tiles of any kind to finish the floor of a tile shower. Smaller tiles will offer needed traction, which will protect against slips and falls.
Here at Floor Coverings International Bloomington we look forward to helping you create a tile shower unique to your space. We proudly serve the greater Bloomington, Minneapolis & Richfield areas and offer free consultations. Call us today!
