Shower Floor Tile

Mosaic tiles are the most popular choice for shower floor tiles. The small size of the individual tiles means they conform to the slope and shape of the shower floor better than a larger tile would. There are also more grout lines present between mosaic tiles, offering much-needed slip resistance in the shower.

Choose the Best Tile for Shower Floors

The first thing to keep in mind when choosing your tile is to make sure you choose one that is approved for use on the shower floor (or pan). This means that it will stand up to the moisture and environment it will be subjected to. Next, consider the slope (if any) of the shower floor. If there is significant slope or variation in the level of the floor, a smaller tile mosaic will more easily adjust to this shape. Our store associates are happy to help you weigh the options and choose the perfect tile for your shower.
