What Material Should I Use For A Shower Floor

Are you currently remodeling or planning to remodel your bathroom? As exciting as aesthetic and plumbing changes may be, shower floors require just as much attention. You may not realize how much thought needs to go into your shower floor and how many options there are. Read on to learn more about what materials are available and how we at Casterra can assist you in designing the best floor for you.

What Material Should I Use For A Shower Floor

A good shower floor is cohesive with the bathroom’s aesthetic, safe, and functional. A professionally designed and contractor-installed floor will last a long time with proper upkeep. A lot of these qualities are dependent on the material used.

Common Shower Floor Materials

Not every material option is optimal for everyone. Each type has its pros and cons. Some materials may be out of the question, depending on your lifestyle and needs. Our professional artisans will help you determine the right fit for you. 

  1. Marble — One of the most popular options, marble is beautiful and versatile. Pretty much any shape desired can be made from marble. However, this material is susceptible to scratches and stains. It’s expensive and doesn’t have the best slip resistance. You will have to have a good sealer to help protect it against filmy residue from soap.
  2. Wood — Elegant and contemporary, wood brings warmth to your bathroom. This should be installed where it sits above the shower base. Slats provide draining to reduce moisture damage. However, wood will discolor and warp over time, and the shower drain won’t be easily accessible to clean. Wood is more high maintenance and draining to the wallet.
  3. Pebbles or Stone — Pebbles and stones are another exquisite natural option that provides high slip resistance. This type is reminiscent of a spa and provides an organic look. While great for preventing falls, the rocky surface may not be pleasant to stand on while showering. Flat-surface pebbles can be used if regular pebbles hurt your feet. If you live in an area with hard water, this type will require daily maintenance to prevent a chalky film from forming.
  4. Concrete — Yes, concrete! Casterra specializes in poured concrete shower floors. Our single-slab concrete floor is specially designed to fit your shower. The floors are pitched to ensure proper drainage. Select from various colors and patterns.
